Coachmen RV freedom Express Blast 17BLSE - Can a HD TRIKE FIT INTO IT

[moderator edit]
I’m looking at the 2023 Coachmen RV Freedom Express Blast 17BLSE. I want to transport my 2017 HD Tri-Glide (Trike).

It looks like it may be a tight fit in length and width.

Is there anyone that transports a Tri glide in this model who can confirm how it fits and if the weight is over the axles?

Pic would also help to give me a visual?

Thanks

I know nothing about that model, but I do know you will need at least 9' of length and at least 62" of width. This would be very minimal and not give you very much room to tie it down properly IMHO.

Thanks. Would love to hear from someone who transports a trike in one. Another member stated he did in another link and I reached out and no response although the link was 3 years ago. I’ve measured it and yes it would be tight that’s why it would be nice to see pic’s from someone that has one. Hopefully once winter is gone I can take it to the rv dealer and check it out.

We went through a Forest River Wildwood FSX 265RTK, among several other TT toy haulers recently at the Tampa RV show. We found maybe 3 that when loaded could be pulled with a 1/2 ton truck/SUV.

We only checked on models that a HD Trike would fit in and we stayed at, or under 30' in length. All the models we went through were designed so that you would have to take the trike out while camped for the night. The exception to that would be if you were only pulling over and stopping to sleep and not use the full galley, then you could possibly leave the trike inside for the evening.

I have loaded my 2016 SyderRT-L into my BLSE. It's a very tight fit, but doable. I think both trykes are about the same size.

Since selling our 44' fiver TH last night we have intensified our search for our next TT toy hauler. What I'm finding is that many up to 30' don't have the GVWR by the time I would load a 1200 pound Harley trike plus personal items. the issue for most is light duty axles under them not to mention lower ply tires.

My search continues.
