Motorcycle Lift and Tow 6,000 lb pickup?

We are Newbies with a Diplomat 400 Cummins that want to take both a Honda Goldwing and a vehicle. Have any of you pulled a heavy toad while using a motorcycle lift? Our other option is the tandem trailer and our Lexus, but concerned about the bother and cost of having to take up two spaces to park the trailer.

If your Dip is single rear axle, you'd be better off putting the bike in the back of the truck.

Rampage Lift in full size pick up

Yes, we are considering the Rampage Lift in the bed of the pickup. Anyone using this combination and feedback?

You have a 10000 hitch and our CC F150 4X4 weigh is less than 6000 lb probaly around 5700 and your bike about 1200? ! lift 400 lb? And you have the ISL 400 so I can't see any problem but I would have a good dependable toad brake sys and a 10,000 tow bar.

If your towing 4 down, what's the matter with 6k pounds? Your hitch isn't seeing 6k pounds, only the weight of the tow bar and bike. Stoping is the only problem with any RV. I have pulled a Goldwing and a Jeep and didn't feel anything back there.

motorcycle and tow vehicle

I carry an Ultra Classic on a Hydra-Lift and pull an F150 or a Grand Cherokee.

Hydra-Lift has an integral 8,000 lb hitch.

I do have a tag though.
