Expert Answers about Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier - Raises and Lowers - RHDC1Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Recommendations for Transporting a Yamaha VStar Custom 650 Motorcycle
  • You should be able to use the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier, item # RHDC1, for your Yamaha VStar Custom 650 that weighs 513 pounds, as long as the vehicle tongue weight capacity and the hitch tongue weight capacity is over 628 pounds. 628 pounds is the weight of the bike added to the weight of the carrier. You will also need to take into account the weight of any cargo loaded behind the rear axle of the vehicle when figuring tongue weight. Personally I would recommend the Trailer...

  • Can Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier, # RHDC1, be Used Behind a Motor Home
  • There are only certain products that can be used behind a motor home. Like you have stated the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier, # RHDC1, cannot be used for this application. The problem is that on the back of a motor home there is significantly more bouncing and jarring because of the extended distance from the rear axle to the back of the vehicle. This translates into significantly more stress on the carrier that it is not designed for. The Ultra-Fab carrier, # UF48-979033,...

  • Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier Rated at 700 lbs
  • We offer a few options that might work for you. The Oldenkamp Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier, part # RHDC1 which is rated for 750 lbs might be a good choice. However, in order to safely use the carrier the hitch on the truck must have a tongue weight capacity high enough to accommodate the 700 lb weight of the bike plus the 115 lb weight of the carrier. Your hitch should have a label on it that states the towing and tongue weight capacity. If your hitch does not have the necessary...

  • Availability of a Hand Crank Motorcycle Carrier to fit the Rear of a Gas RV
  • To haul a motorcycle on the rear of an RV I would have the Blue Ox Motorcycle Carrier I for Motor Homes, part # SC2000. This motorcycle carrier does not have the hand crank to lower the bike. It will use a loading ramp to get the bike onto the carrier. It also requires two 6 inch long receiver tubes to be welded to the frame of the RV. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Blue Ox motorcycle carrier. I do not have a motorcycle carrier with a hand crank that will...

  • Will a Harley Sportster Fit on the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier RHDC1
  • On a Class IV or V trailer hitch, as long as the bike does not exceed 635 pounds then the hitch and carrier should have the capacity. Make sure that the bike tires are at most 6 inches wide and that the wheelbase for the bike is under 80 inches. The carrier is meant as a dirt bike carrier. But a smaller street bike like a Sportster could fit as long as it is within the abilities of the carrier. If the bike will not fit the specs listed above then I recommend a different carrier, # RHMC1SV,...

  • Will the Rage PoweSport Motorcycle Carrier # SMC600 Carry a Honda Reflex Scooter
  • From the research that I have done on your Honda Reflex scooter, you should have no problem fitting your scooter on the Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier, # SMC600. It looks like your scooter has a dry weight of approximately 375 lbs and a wheel base of approximately 60 inches. This motorcycle carrier has a weight capacity of 600 lbs and the track is 78-3/4 inches long. This is one of the best motorcycle carrier that we offer for scooters with low ground clearance. The ramp for this...

  • Recommended Carrier to Transport Scooter on Rear of 2000 Winnebago Rialta
  • The majority of the lower cost motorcycle carriers we offer are not intended for use on the rear of a motorhome or RV. On a typical RV, there is a greater distance between the rear axle and the rear bumper than what you would see on a regular passenger vehicle. This distance would cause a hitch mounted accessory to experience quite a bit of bouncing (remember sitting in the back seat of the school bus when it went over a large bump?). However, Ultra-Fab assures me that their # UF48-979033...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for Use with a 1998 Winnebago Rialta Motor Home
  • For a motorcycle carrier for use behind a motor home you can use # UF48-979033. It does not fold or have a raised shank but it is the only one of this type of carrier that you can use behind a motor home. Folding items are not recommended behind RVs and trailers because of the extra movement at the back, like being at the back of a school bus. The places where carriers fold is a possible point of weakness and the extra bouncing at the back of an RV could cause a folding carrier to fail. For...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Toyota Highlander to Carry a Dirt Bike
  • Trailer hitches are built with the sudden jolt of driving and bouncing in mind so a hitch rated for 350 pounds tongue weight such as # 13530 for your 2004 Toyota Highlander will certainly hold up well in that situation provided the tongue weight of what is installed in the hitch does not exceed that 350 pound capacity. If you are concerned about it then there are some things you can do to reduce the weight such as removing gas from the bike and the battery. But as far as the sudden...

  • Blue Ox Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for Transporting a Scooter on a 2008 Winnebago
  • We have a motorcycle carrier that is designed for use on RVs and motorhomes, but the Oldenkamp Hitch Cargo Carrier # RHDC1 is not designed for the rougher ride that is at the rear of an RV or motorhome. The Blue Ox Motorcycle Carrier I for Motor Homes # SC2000 would be the one you would want. This carrier is designed for use on an RV or a motorhome and should work well for you. I attached installation instructions for you to check out also.

  • Will a Jonway Belt-Drive Scooter Fit the Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # RHMC1SV
  • The first thing you have to consider is the front wheel size on your scooter. The Trailer Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier # RHMC1SV is designed for 16 to 21 inch motorcycle tires. Anything smaller or larger will not fit. The wheel also cannot be more than 5-1/2 inches wide. If the scooter fits these parameters then with a belt drive you can safely tow it up to 55-65 miles per hour in neutral. If the scooter will not fit then there are other options for 2 inch trailer hitches. Carrier...

  • Motorcycle/Scooter Carrier to Carry Honda Helix Scooter Behind Jayco 24 Foot Camping Trailer
  • We offer a carrier that is suitable for carrying a small scooter on the rear of your travel trailer. The UltraFab MX Hauler, part # UF48-979033 has a 500 lb capacity. Keep in mind, however that that capacity might be lowered if the hitch you use on your travel trailer has a lower capacity. You'll need to make sure that the capacity of the hitch can handle the 360 lb weight of the scooter plus the about 50 lb weight of the carrier. The carrier can accommodate scooters with tires up to...

  • Does the Oldenkamp Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier # RHDC1 have the Capacity for a 1997 Honda PC800
  • The Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier # RHDC1 has a capacity of 750 lbs. The carrier has the capacity for your motorcycle, but you will need check the capacity of the hitch you have on the vehicle you intend to carry the motorcycle with. This carrier weighs 115 lbs, if you add that to the 650 lbs of your motorcycle you end up with a total weight of 765 lbs. Your hitch will need to have a higher tongue weight capacity of 765 lbs to use this carrier. Width wise you shouldn't have...

  • How to Carry a 750 Pound Harley on the Back of a 2006 London Aire Diesel Pusher RV
  • The Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier, # RHDC1, is not rated for use behind an RV/Motor Home or trailer. There is only one carrier like this that is but it does not have the capacity for a 750 pound Harley. You have 1 other option and that would be to tow the motorcycle on a small trailer such as # UMCT1XHD-AM31985 or a similar style trailer. Considering the type of bike and weight of the bike, I would not recommend carrying it on anything else since there is considerably more...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation For 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
  • I did some research on your 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. From the information I found in the owners manual, it states the towing capacity for your Highlander is 3500 lbs. Tongue weight is usually about 10 percent of the towing capacity, so the tongue weight capacity would be about 350 lbs. Many times hitches will have a much higher weight rating than the vehicle they are installed on. You will always want to make sure you do not exceed the lowest rated component. The Trailer Hitch...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Harley Davidson Iron 883
  • If your Harley Davidson Iron 883 weighs 575 lbs when ready to ride then you could get away with using a motorcycle carrier with a 600 lb capacity. But if that figure is a dry weight I would recommend going with a 750 lb capacity carrier like the Oldenkamp Motorcycle Carrier part # RHDC1 that you referenced. You will want to make sure your hitch and vehicle have the tongue weight capacity for the weight of this rack plus your motorcycle. This carrier weighs 115 lbs.

  • Carrying a Vespa 150 Scooter on an Itasca Reyo Motor Home
  • You might be able to put your Vespa 150 on the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier # RHDC1. However, this carrier is not rated for use at the back of any RV or trailer so you would not be able to safely use it on the Reyo. We currently have one similar carrier that can be used at the back of your RV. It is the Ultra-Fab carrier # UF48-979033. This carrier has a 500 pound capacity. The trailer hitch must have a tongue weight capacity that exceeds the weight of the carrier (about 50...

  • Carrying a Motorcycle on a Chinook Class C Motor Home
  • There is only one motorcycle carrier rated for use behind an RV. It is Ultra-Fab carrier, # UF48-979033, and it is only rated up to 500 pounds. Because there isn't a carrier that is going to work for you the best and safest option is to tow a small trailer behind the RV such as # UMCT1XHD-AM31985 or a similar one obtained locally. This will also significantly lower the tongue weight on the hitch and vehicle and be safer all around. Your trailer hitch should have a sticker on it that...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for a Motor Home
  • I may have an option that will work for you, however, the Oldenkamp Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier, # RHDC1, is not recommended for use behind a motor home or trailer. There is additional bounce and movement at the back of a motor home and trailer because the mounting location of a hitch mounted accessory sits further away from the rear suspension than it would on a car or truck. This additional movement puts additional torque on the hitch and accessory that most accessories cannot...

  • Recommendations for Carrying 2 Motorcycles at the Rear of a Arista Holiday Rambler Motorhome
  • The best possible solution I can offer you is to get a Blue Ox SportCarrier I # SC2100. This carrier is the only carrier rated to carry more than one motorcycle on the back of an RV. You will need to make sure that the vehicle frame extends back to the rear of the motorhome, welded-on extensions will not support the weight. To make loading of the motorcycles easier you will also need to get a Ramp Kit for Blue Ox SportCarrier # SC9023. The capacity of this carrier is 1,000 lbs, so...

  • Will 2008 Honda Silver Wing Scooter Fit on the Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier # MX600
  • I looked up your 2008 Honda Silver Wing scooter and that is a very nice looking scooter. With where the engine is located I see why you would question if it is a rear engine scooter. I spoke with my contact at Rage and he said they do consider that scooter a rear engine because most of the weight is still towards the rear of the scooter. He said they would NOT recommend using the Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier, part # MX600 for your Honda Silver Wing. The Rage carrier is designed...
