MC Carrier on RV via tongue hitch
Rather than start a new thread I thought I'd start this one up again.
I'm looking into carrying an MC with the Versahaul carrier on the back of a gas motorhome. The tongue hitch is a Class III rated for 500# the Versahaul model I'm looking at weighs 95# leaving room for a 405# bike dry. I'd plan on putting a bike that weighs about 325# so there is some room.
That said the remaining issue is whether these things are a viable way to carry your bike. I've read lots of threads where people talk of static vs dynamic strain and with the movement of the carrier inside the tongue sleeve it will crack and fail leaving your bike and rack on the highway.
One of the things I don't get is if this set up is so prone to fail why are there still companies in business selling them. Their carriers all have some type of anti-rattle/movement attachments where it inserts into the hitch.
There must be someone out there that has a carrier on the back of a motorhome out there.... :ear
