Video Transcript for Maxxtow Motorcycle Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at Maxx Tow's Maxx Haul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2 inch hitches, part number MT70101. This carrier's gonna be great for your mini bike, dirt bike, or motorcycle weighing up to 400 pounds. This is gonna give you a secure place to attach your bike while freeing up room in the back of your truck bed. Now, if you've got an SUV or a Jeep, this will give you the option to bring your motorcycle along, 'cause those typically don't have room in the back.It's gonna give you a safe and secure way to transport your motorcycle and bring it with you. Unlike your truck bed, where it may slide around in the back and potentially cause damage to your bike, this has several tie down points to keep it nice and secure, and attached to the frame, where it won't cause any damage.The manufacturer recommends that you use four straps.

We recommend using Ratchet straps. We're using part number 288-05852. But you can find many other options here at etrailer.com.At the rear of our carrier, we'll have two pins. These pins are removable, and will allow you to adjust the location where your rear tire will sit depending on the size of that rear tire and the life of your motorcycle. There are three different holes that you can slide your rods into to give you that proper cradle for that rear tire.At the front of our carrier, you'll have a clamp on each side that you can use to keep your wheel straight by pressing in against the tire.

There's one adjustment pin here that can be inserted or removed as you need. And you simply tighten down the knobs until they clamp your tire, and then secure it using the wing nuts.For smaller tires like on our mini bike here, you'll mount your clamps on the top of the rack, clamp the tire, and provide a cradle. And here you can see we've got our larger tire set up with our under mount, it clamps the tire below here. And our rod will go through the spokes of our wheel. This is to give us that extra layer of protection.

In case something we're to happen, our bike can't go anywhere.Other safety features include reflectors on each side, so this way you'll remain visible at night. And it features an anti-rattle clamp to help minimize vibration and movement of our carrier inside our receiver while going down the road.We've gone ahead and removed the bike so we can go over some additional features. Our carrier's an aluminum construction, so it's gonna be strong, lightweight, rust resistant, and it's also not gonna add much to our ton weight, since we're already carrying a large item.Just behind our carrier, it features an integrated ramp that's held into place with a clamp here and a small clamp here. We just loosen both of those, twist that. We can take our ramp off now for loading and unloading our bike.Your ramp can attach to either side using this channel located here, it simply rests on that channel.

And the carrier's labeled to let you know which way to position the ramp when loading and unloading.And now I've got some dimensions for you. The carrier measures 79 inches long, 8.5 inches wide. And our ladder ramp measures 41 inches long, with the same width. The inside of our carrier track is 7 inches wide.And now to help you in determining the distance between your motorcycle and the back of your vehicle, I've got some measurements for you. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of our carrier, it's gonna measure about 17 inches. And from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest edge, it's gonna measure about 12.5 inches.And getting your bike on the carrier is as simple as pushing your bike up the ramp. And then we put on our straps. We ran one across the middle of our frame, from one side to the other. We also ran one from one side to the other across the front of our frame. And then we put a strap on each side of our handlebars to help prevent any movement and keep that safe.And when unloading your bike, you'll place your ramp on the opposite side and your bike will just go forward right down that ramp.Customers on our website compared this to Ultra-Fab's dirt bike carrier. Our MaxxTow's going to have a larger track width, however our Ultra-Fab does have a 500 pound carrying capacity, which is 100 pounds more than what our MaxxTow can carry.The MaxxTow's ramp is gonna be slightly longer than our Ultra-Fab, at 41 inches versus Ultra-Fab's 39. This is important when loading your motorcycle, as a shorter ramp is gonna have a steeper angle, requiring more effort to push the bike up the ramp. And finally, the MaxxTow will have greater clearance between the carrier and the back of your vehicle.Our customer, Brian, had to say, "Works as advertised! Very stable platform. I just wish it had more contact points to use multiple tie downs for added peace of mind. Not a requirement to haul your bike safely however. I did a lot of research fining the right carrier. Settled on this one for the design. Do not sacrifice safety for a cheapo from the discount hardware store."And that's right, Brian, this one's really secure. You can haul your bike safely and get to your destination. But we also find it would be nice to have more tie down points.And that completes our look at MaxxTow's Maxx Haul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2 inch hitches, part number MT70101.

What a neat little carrier. Great quality. Well made. Our little Honda 85 has a bit too short wheelbase but it still secured easily. My son can easily load his own bike now. 724811

Does the job. I’ve had these units with a solid channel for the tires to sit “on” and units like this where the tires drop down into them. The former is easier to load and unload, the later is a bit safer while hauling, but more prone to tip overs trying to get your bike “out” of the carrier. In any case this unit is well built and hard to beat for the money. I had to coat the threaded bolts with an anti-seize compound so they would remain free and easy to use. I store this outside and it seems to be weathering just fine. The bottom line; for the money you can’t beat it. 602389

I bought this a year ago when my son got a dirt bike. We’ve used it many many times, and it’s still working great. It was a very good investment. The carrier is relatively easy to use- we’ve got it down to a routine now, loading and unloading the bike. The carrier attaches to our hitch pretty easy too, It could be done- carrier and bike, with one person. But it is a littler easier and quicker with two. The carrier is very sturdy, and stays in place- no movement while driving. We did purchase an additional piece ( I can’t recall the name of it now), which stabilized the carrier where it inserts into the hitch. It keeps it from the little bit of movement /bouncing around that we had without. Now it is solid. 628431

I think the carrier is good quality for use and price. However, I have an issue with the ramp being too short and therefore too steep. The instructions say that the carrier should be no more than 14 inches from the ground. That's not mentioned on the website and so I have the problem where mine is 20 inches. I wrote and asked if I could purchase an additional ramp thinking I can have two fastened together at a local trailer shop. Unfortunately I haven't received a response. Instead I found a used ramp locally that I can fit. 614122

I loaded my Vespa GT200 onto the MT70101 carrier and drove 2,750 miles to Arizona in my Toyota Highlander....the carrier worked flawlessly...My mileage was hardly affected by the scooter. I secured mt Vespa with 4 ratchet straps, and away we went. I secured mt Vespa with 4 ratchet straps, and away we went. I do find it impossible to load by myself...getting up the ramp requires 2 people...my wife has gotten pretty good with helping me. I am extremely pleased with this carrier and would recommend it to anyone. A great find. 605842

Trailer is very solid and well constructed. Instructions aren't necessarily the best, but it was not difficult to assemble. I was contacted a few days after my order to be told it may be delayed from China. We looked at other options but decided to stick with this one. Customer service followed up when it was shipped. Overall I was very impressed with their initial contact with me and continuing follow-up to keep me happy. I would definitely recommend them. 347157

- MT70101
by:

this carrier is a nice unit but I can’t give it a great review. The reason for this is the tie down brackets for the bike. The front one near the trailer hitch is very strong. However the one on the rear scares me. It is used for two functions, one to hold the loading ramp in place, second as s tie down for the bike. It bends when tightening down the ramp and is a cheap piece of metal not braced correctly. This plate is not welded along the top where it should be and has two “wings” on it for bracing. These wings do nothing to make it stronger. They should extend completely down the length of the tube and be fully welded for strength!! 568435

Fits the TW200 like a glove. Most stable option I’ve tried so far! I put on front of my Tundra and can only see the handlebars and cargo rack. Highly recommend this one. The anti rattle/sway clamps really do the trick! Good job! 647225

This carrier is perfect for our Honda Ruckus! It was easy to assemble and loading the scooter is a breeze also. We have the carrier on a hitch that I installed on the front of our motorhome that we also purchased from Etrailer. Weve traveled 300 miles on the first trip and all is well. Etrailer rocks! 571138

9/24/2018 Assembly was easy. Missing one bolt, so I swapped out the tie down bolt and used SAE in its place then putting the tie down bolt on the main steel bracket.

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Capacity Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 Explained
  • The capacities of the Detail K2 Carrier part # K2TMC201 vary depending on the tongue weight capacity of the hitch it is installed in. They rate it like this to help you prevent overloading the hitch. Also you have to keep in mind that a lower rated hitch is going to allow a bit more flex which would possibly put more strain on the rack as well. I attached a chart that shows how the numbers relate to each other. What you need to do is find out the tongue weight capacity of your hitch...

  • Will EcoHitch Front Mount Hitch Receiver Fit a Diesel 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • I do have a way that you can still have a front mount hitch receiver on your 2018 Ford F-350 but when I spoke with my contact at EcoHitch he said that the diesel models have extra cooler lines that would get in the way of the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount # 306-X7904. For a trailer hitch that fits your 2018 F-350 diesel I recommend the Curt Front Mount # C31078 over the Draw-Tite # 65076 because they have easier instructions when it comes to cutting the front fascia. This will then allow...

For a motorcycle carrier that would work great I recommend checking out the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101. I've also added a link to our selection of motorcycle carriers for you to take a look at.

  • Tow Dolly and Scooter Carrier for 2014 Chevy Volt and Vespa Scooter
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of a 2014 Chevy Volt and it is able to be towed via dolly so what I highly recommend for a dolly is the Demco Kar Kaddy 3 Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Tilt Bed Frame # DM9713046 or Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Foldable # DM9713045 because of how much easier they are to use than other dollies. The Kar Kaddy 3 tilts down and the Kar Kaddy SS has a ramp so you can simply drive up the dolly and secure your car on it. These dollies also have a...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Mazda CX-5 for Carrying Motorcycle Carrier
  • Yes, you can carry the Maxxtow Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 with your 2019 Mazda CX-5 but the hitch you'll want is the Draw Tite part # 76138 because it has a higher tongue weight capacity and does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a motorcycle carrier like the Curt hitch does. This hitch has a 675 lb tongue weight capacity and the carrier has a capacity of 400 lbs which would be more than enough for a 250 lbs motorcycle.

  • Hitch and Motorcycle Carrier for 2018 Subaru Forester
  • I recommend a 2-inch Class III hitch for your 2018 Forester since this size offers both higher weight capacity and broader compatibility with accessories like bike racks. The one I suggest is the Draw-Tite # 75876 because it offers relatively simple no-drill installation and you can see the whole install process in the video I linked for you. For a dirt bike carrier I recommend the MaxxTow # MT70101. You can see this item in the linked video. The MaxxTow has a 400-lb load rating and...

  • Does a Hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier Reduce Tongue Weight Capacity Like a Hitch Extender
  • We are talking about 2 different animals. A motorcycle carrier does not reduce the tongue weight capacity of a trailer hitch like a hitch extender does. So if the tongue weight capacity of the hitch AND vehicle is greater than the combined weight of the bike and motorcycle carrier then you are within the capacity and will be good to go. You might consider a lighter carrier such as # MT70101 which weighs about 50 pounds so it would reduce the stress on the hitch.

Is that the weight of the scooter when it is full of fuel or with the battery included? You will want to make sure you do not exceed the capacity of the carrier or the trailer hitch on your Edge.

  • Can the Motorcycle Carrier MT70101 be Used to Carry a Yamaha Street Bike on a 2013 Nissan Murano
  • I have some good news and bad news; the good news is that you are definitely on the right track of making sure that you are under the 400-lb Tongue Weight (TW) capacity of your Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13577. The bad news is that your 2013 Nissan Murano looks like it is the limiting factor instead of your Curt hitch receiver. Your Murano has a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs and typically the TW is 10% of that making your TW capacity 350 lbs instead of 400. You will want to double check...

  • Your Honda Ruckus has a wet weight of 194 lbs., so you can use it with many cargo carrier options like the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Folding - 500 lbs # C18153. You will just need to make sure that your towing vehicle and hitch receiver rated tongue weights are able to support the weight of the scooter along with the 70 lb carrier. If this is all you will be using the carrier for, you may be interested in the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2"...

If you have the 2.4L I4 engine then your maximum tongue weight capacity is 280 lbs but if you have the 3.3L V6 engine then your maximum tongue weight capacity is 350 lbs. Therefore, as long as the weight of the carrier and dirt bike do not exceed these figures then you will be able to safely carry it. For this you will need both a trailer hitch and motorcycle carrier.

Measure from the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch out to the furthest point out on the spare. If that distance is less than 12-1/2 inches then this rack will clear past it easily. If not let me know what year Wrangler you have as we have hitches that have extended hitch tubes which would be the best way to get additional clearance. If you had a 2007...

  • I understand that you want to use a hitch-mount dirt bike carrier like # MT70101 or # UF48-979033 on your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI but the limiting factor is that the hitches made for your TDI, such as EcoHitch # 306-X7284, are rated for only 200-lbs tongue weight. The rated tongue weight (TW), which is downward force on the hitch, must be enough for the combined weight of the bike (225-lbs) and the carrier it is on, which is another 50-lbs for both # MT70101 and # UF48-979033....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Motorcycle Carrier for a 2010 Toyota Highlander
  • The carrier I recommend is the MaxxTow, part # MT70101, because it's aluminum making it lighter than other steel carriers. This makes it easier to mount into a trailer hitch and also takes up less of the vehicle's available tongue weight as well. This carrier is also equipped with a 41 inch long ramp to make it easier to load the bike. The hitch I recommend for your 2010 Toyota Highlander is the etrailer.com Class III, part # E98858. It's similar to the Curt, part # 13534, that's...

  • Recommended Motorcycle Carrier for 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • For your 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75139 for a trailer hitch receiver to get you started. Then I recommend the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2" Hitches - 400 lbs # MT70101 to carry your dirt bike. This carrier has a weight of 53 lbs with a weight capacity of 400 lbs ensuring your trailer hitch receiver is within its limits. I also recommend the # EM31353 tie downs along with...

  • Can a 2015 Dodge Dart Carry a Motorcycle on a Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier
  • With that being said I definitely recommend not carrying your Honda motorcycle with your 2015 Dodge Dart. The carrier you're looking at, part # MT70101, is rated up to 400 pounds and from my research the bike has wet weight of 357 pounds. So I understand why you think you're okay. However, you're capacity is limited by the lowest rated component, and the Curt hitch, part # C11281, is a Class I hitch that's rated up to 200 pounds of tongue weight. Furthermore, your 2015 Dodge Dart is...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • For your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee we have the Curt Front Hitch part # C31033 which is a confirmed fit and has a 350 lb vertical load capacity. If the weight of your scooter and carrier is less than that this would work. But you'd have to consider the fact you are most likely going to block air flow to the radiator and possibly your headlights. For a carrier then we have the MaxxTow Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 which would work well. For tie downs we then have the part # EM05710.

  • Hitch, Bike and Motorcycle Carrier for a 2017 Rockwood Roo 233S Hybrid Trailer
  • I have a solution for you, however the Kuat Transfer, part # TS02G, isn't approved for use on the rear of a trailer or RV. This is because of the distance between the axle and the location of the hitch causes additional stress to be put on the bike rack and the hitch, potentially damaging less sturdy racks. I recommend for your eventual goal to first verify the weight capacity of your bumper in your owner's manual or with your manufacturer to make sure that loading the motorcycle won't...

  • Does 2018 Toyota RAV4 Have Tongue Weight Capacity For Dirt Bike Carrier
  • I took a look at the online copy of the owner's manual for a 2018 Toyota RAV4 and it did not list a maximum tongue weight capacity. The tongue weight is meant to be around 10 percent to 15 percent when towing a trailer, like you said, but our only source for capacities is the owner's manual, and this one does not specify a hard limit. Realistically, you should probably be fine using a 2 inch hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13149 - a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and 525 lb...

  • Front Trailer Hitch for 2017 GMC Yukon
  • Though we have not had a chance to do a video showing the Draw-Tite # 65064 being installed on a 2017 GMC Yukon, I have linked the installation instructions for you to take a look at. No drilling into your Yukon's frame is required to install this hitch and the only modification required is the removal or trimming of lower plastic air dam, which is also true of the Curt hitch # C31073 that fits your Yukon (the Curt hitch does not fit models with Z71 Package); I have also linked the installation...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch to Carry Scooter on 1997 Ford E-150 Club Wagon
  • I took a look at the owner's manual for your 1997 Ford E-150 Club Wagon and the amount you can potentially carry. You would be able to if you had a 4.6L or 5.4L engine, is that what you have?

  • Carrying A 100lb Trail Bike On A Cross-Country Trip With A 2013 Ford Fusion SE
  • Your best option is going to be a hitch mounted motorcycle carrier. The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7239 is the only hitch providing a 2" receiver you could then pair with the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2" Hitches # MT70101 that is used for much heavier bikes but may be ideal for a cross country road trip. The 200lbs tongue weight rating for this hitch applies when towing. I did not see in the owners manual a reference to the maximum towing capacity...

  • Can MaxxTow Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 Be Used on Hitch w/ 350 LB Tongue Weight Capacity
  • The MaxxTow PowerSport Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier, # MT70101, must be used in a 2 inch hitch that has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs or more so this would not work for you but I do have something that will work. Take a look at part # K2TMC201. This carrier mounts in a 2 inch hitch with no capacity minimums. Please do keep in mind that when using this carrier to transport your dirt bike you will be extremely close to the 350 lb maximum capacity. 245 lb dirt bike + 87 lb carrier...

  • Determining if Handlebars on BMW Motorcycle on MaxxTow Carrier Will Contact Sprinter Van Door
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 referenced in your question features a distance of 17 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the track where your motorcycle will mount. Whether or not there will be any interference between the handlebars of your BMW G310GS and the rear door of your Sprinter will depend a bit on the exact hitch model you have installed. Just as an example when we installed the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Class III Hitch # 75549...

  • Carrying a 231 Pound Motorcycle on a 2014 Volvo S60 with 165 Tongue Weight Capacity
  • Tongue weight is the downward force put on a hitch by whatever it is carrying. When you're using a hitch for a carrier, like the cargo carrier you're getting or a bike rack, all of the weight on the hitch is tongue weight. The MaxxHaul carrier, part # MT70101, weighs about 50 pounds itself. So between it and the 231 pound motorcycle combined the tongue weight you're trying to carry is about 280 pounds. If your Volvo has a 165 pound maximum tongue weight then you're way over your vehicle's...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier for a Yamaha TW200
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 will actually be prefect for your Yamaha TW200 for two reasons. The first reason I feel this is the best carrier for you would be its track width. This carrier will work perfectly with your 7" wide tire which is close to the limit as far as hitch mounted motorcycle carriers go. The next reason I feel this carrier will be good for you is its weight which will lead into my next segue. The carrier has a shipping weight of around...
