    Hey psaint
    We had a small toyhauler to carry my 2007 BMWGS but hated giving up that 10 feet of space. We then bought a 2008 38 ft Carri-Lite, put a lift on the back for the bike. While the bike was secure enough, the rig tended to porpoise a lot when going over any rolls or dips in the road. Our rig has a 12 inch frame and I've put more weight up front on the pin but only made modest improvements.
    We've been looking at Mobile Suites 34RESL with a 15 inch frame, 17 1/2 inch wheels versus our current 16" set up. The MS being shorter should mean the back axels are closer to the rear than our current setup. Can you please fill me in on how your rig performs with the RT on the back. Do you get any porpoising, does the bike move around/up/down, or is it completely still? Did you have to do any modifications to your rig/frame to carry the extra weight???
    Any tips you can give me are much appreciated.
    Many Thanks
    PS: my bike weighs in at 470 lbs
