Moped carrier

Does anyone recommend a good manufacturer for a moped/cargo carrier? I def. don't want to spend 700 bucks on one like the one the moped dealer wants to sell.

Wow...69 views and no posts...LOL.

Try here: http://www.discountramps.com/carriers/c/2130/

If you have a local classifieds or Craig's list you might find a welder that makes them - in many cases they're just as good or better than the factory ones and usually a lot cheaper.

$300 is quite a bit for one, not unusual to find a used one or welding works one for even less.

I recommend an integrated ramp, or way to store it. You'll need one to load the moped on the rack.

I carry mine on a hitch mounted carrier i got from Northern tool. Be sure and get the aluminum one as it is much lighter, and doesn't rust.

I carried two mopeds on a hitch carrier that was rated for 500 lbs. I did add stabilizers at the edge of the carrier to the bumper to ease the Wobblies.

Go to discountramps.com and they have scooter ramps for under $150. Depends on the weight of your moped.

I have used Thule bike carriers in the past and they are quality. I'm sure they make a carrier that is designed to carry a moped. An internet search will yield a lot of results. Good Luck!

I have a motorcycle rack which will holds up to 500 pounds which will easily cover a moped.
And your trailer hitch is most likely 500 pound tongue weight limit. Happy to sell it for 50 bucks

EBay should have them for about 90 to $110. The aluminum units are much lighter but it's really not an issue all things considered, no need to pay a lot of money - mine is in the Kansas City area telephone number 770-630-2534

I just put a Versa Haul carrier on the back to carry my scooter. Good quality, recommend 2 people to install it though, it is a little heavy. Very stable.
