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.

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

The more I use the MT70101 the more I like it...it works flawlessly.

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

- MT70101

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

The instruction manual and your photos of the rack show the front tire hold down clamps under the rack But the phones from the customers show that hold downs above the rack In my review of mine, before being able to load my scooter, I don’t see how the tire hold downs under the rack would work But the customers photos make sense Please explain why the manual and your photos show the clamps under the rack Bob 576177

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

- MT70101

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

- MT70101

Works as advertised! Very stable platform. I just wish it had more contact points to use multiple tie downs for added piece of mind. Not a requirement to haul your bike safely however. I did alot of research finding the right carrier. Settled on this one for the design. DO NOT sacrafice safety for a cheapo from that discount hardware store. 513248

- MT70101

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

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. The rack is light yet sturdy and fits the wide tires of the TW200. Using the rack on the front of F250 4X4. Test drive went well at 70 MPH highway and bumpy dirt road at 30 MPH. 568297

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

- MT70101

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

- MT70101

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

Rack works great. It was easy to assemble and is easy to use. Our only wish would be for a couple of pins to hold the ramp piece in place. Sometimes it wants to pop up when you are pushing the bike on or off the rack. 677230

Good delivery time, works great I highly recommend. Shipping box was severely damaged because of cheap poor quality cardboard, no bill of material or assembly instructions were in box, hardware was scattered all around box but I was able to figure out how to put it together anyway. Shipping container issues prevented me from giving it 5 stars. 658970

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow 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...

  • Straps to Use with Maxxtow Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 to Transport Yamaha TW200
    We had a customer who used the Maxxtow motorcycle carrier part # MT70101 that you referenced to carry a TW200 and they used ratchet straps form a bracket on the fork tubes to the anchor points. I really like the idea of the tire-pad-strap you sent a picture of but we don't carry anything like that. If it were me though I'd go with the tried and true method of attaching tie downs to the handlebars of the bike like with the # EM31353. I grew up with motorcycles and we always used this...

  • 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.

  • 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...

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you're asking if the hitch pin on the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 will work with the Curt # D210; the answer to that question is yes. The hitch pin will work on the 2" receiver of the Curt # D210.

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.

  • 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...

    The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2" Hitch Receiver # MT70101 is not recommended for use behind a Fifth Wheel trailer or motor home because it will bounce too much at the back of a fifth wheel, like you suggest.

Take a look at # UF48-979033. With the combined weight of the carrier...

  • Compatibility of Yamaha TW200 Rear Tire 180/80-14 with MaxxHaul Motorcycle Carrier
    Based on the original question and answer, it appears you have a Yamaha TW200.

    We have a couple carriers that will work for your 2015 Edge and your wife's Vespa. You mentined the weight of the Vespa at 245-lbs.

  • Scooter Carrier Recommendation for 2012 Cadillac SRX Luxury with Draw Tite #75682 Hitch
    The weight of the Maxxtow Carrier part # MT70101 that you referenced is 53 lbs. So that would put you at a total of 368 lbs between the carrier and the scooter. That would be under the 400 lb capacity of the Draw Tite hitch part # 75682 that you have so it would work just fine.

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles # HR1455Z-E, for instance, has an 80-lbs-per-bike weight rating and it works fine with fat bikes having tires up to 5-inches wide.
