You should have your coach weighed as at is now, loaded for how you travel. Then look at your GAWR for your drive axle. The weight of your Goldwing and lift may put you over your axle max. All that weight back there will also tend to unload your steer axle and cause handling issues.

Not saying impossible just do research and be careful.

we had the Mighty Hauler model and it broke with in 6 months due to poor design and poor manufacturing. A steel plate split that, if I had not seen it when I did, would have caused the bike, toad and what was left of the lift to separate from the MH while underway. Stay away from these guys if you are planning to haul anything larger then a small scooter back there.

Researched them all...for my money, and unfortunately the most money...Hydra-lift. It'll set you back $5800-$6100 ($42-4500 for ramp and chuck, Amazon versus service center procured, and 12 hours installation). Allows for up to 8000 lb tow, the largest of any of the systems.

For my money worth it. Period and Exclamation mark. I do have a tag and agree with the previous poster; however, you can go to the Hydra lift site ad see the coaches they have put their system on. Service outfits also sy it is by far the best.

Used a OverBuilt unit for years behind two different coaches -- 900 lb. Royal Star Venture

40 ft. Winne Ultimate Freedom & 45 ft. Zephyr

Just completed extensive rebuild and modification in our shop -- now carry a GoldWing Trike

Thanks for all the info.. It would be great if anyone had the same coach as I do so I could hear how it handled the weight. I will most likely buy a hydraulic system. Priced at $6000 installed
