Best suited for dirt bikes <350lbs, mainly because it is a bolt together product. I have been very happy with it though. 539246

Had to assemble and was able to do so rather easily, however the instructions were a bit vague. It will work for what I want it to do. I am using it on the front of my pickup to carry a 50cc Vespa. I'm going to use an extra strap attached to my brush guard, pulling back, to ensure the scooter doesn't try to roll forward. 587772

Used this carrier for my DR650, put it on my Equinox that I use as a TOAD behind my Coachmen Motirhome. Went from Waco, TX, to Taos, NM, to Douglas, AZ, to Tyler, TX - then back to Waco. Carrier held up great - no problems, and I can load and unload it with ease ( 71 years old ) 529071

I used this rack to pick up a new dirt bike (~250 lbs dry weight) that was 4 hour drive from my house. I used a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the bike loaded very easily when idled up onto the rack in 1st gear while walking beside it. Tons of clearance between the bike and the rear of the vehicle so no concerns there. The tie-down points work really well and the bike seemed very stable. I added a tensioning device to keep the rack from wobbling in the receiver, which I would recommend. Overall, I'm very satisfied, especially considering the great price on this rack. To provide a complete review, I will point out some things that I think could be improved: (1) Since the main tray is divided into two sections, it sags into a sort of frown shape after the bike is on for some time. This is due to the slop in the mounting holes where the support straps attach. This could be done better. (2) At least when the rack is empty, the ramp sort of clatters around in it's mount because there is quite a bit of play. I just threw the ramp inside my vehicle as it is pretty small. 562393

I will be purchasing a hitch stabalizer because I will be going off road with it and don't want it to move at all. It has very minimal movement though. Overall very happy with product. 306618

Great product and experience from the beginning!! We ordered it with the free standard shipping 5-7 days and I got an email saying they shipped it express 3-5 days at no extra cost!!! We received it really fast!! I also feel it is a great buy for the money!!! We haven't used it on our motor home yet but used it yesterday on our truck to pick up our new scooter. It worked perfectly! We also purchased the Anti-Tilt Bracket ANTI-REV-REV and I highly recommend it!! Without it there was a little wiggle but with it it didn't move at all. Can't wait to try it out on our first camping trip in the motor home!!! 123942

I bought the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier to haul a 150cc scooter on the back of my RV (see photo). I received the item 2 days after I ordered it. All parts and directions were included. Assembly was simple. The overall quality of construction and powder coating is very good. Although the directions don’t say so, I would recommend “test fitting” your bike/scooter after the carrier is assembled and while it is still on the ground, in order to ensure the appropriate placement of the cross bolts and safety pins. I could not get the scooter on the carrier using the included 3’ ramp. It was too steep of an incline and the middle of my scooter got hung-up where the ramp meets the carrier platform. It tore off the plastic mud cover under the scooter and the ramp slid off the end of the platform. Fortunately, I was able to lift the scooter off the platform without further damage. I would highly recommend that (for safety) you have 2 people on hand during the initial installation. (I didn’t.) Once properly installed, it is a 1-man operation to load/unload the bike/scooter. I had to swing my right side rear view mirror in for clearance to the back of the RV. This would not be required for a pickup truck installation. I was able to get the scooter onto the carrier using a 6’ folding motorcycle ramp that I have. This made the incline much less steep and the scooter easily rolled onto the carrier in a one-man operation. Having to carry the extra motorcycle ramp is going to be a hassle, and it defeats the purpose of the included detachable/stowable ramp, but it’s the only way I can get the scooter loaded. I’m sure that the included 3’ ramp would be great for a dirt bike with higher clearance under the frame, but with a low slung scooter, it won’t work. The safety pins that are intended to go through the spokes of the front wheel do not work on my scooter’s 13” wheel. I tried adjusting the cross bolts as per the directions, but the configuration of my wheels just won’t work with these pins. I’m sure they would work with a dirt bike wheel. I used ratchet straps to hold the wheels securely in place in lieu of the pins. My scooter has a lot of plastic body parts, which makes it difficult to find secure tie-down points. I tied it down with 4 ratchet straps as documented in the photo and I took it on a test drive. I was able to watch the scooter on my rear-view video camera. It rode well. I am satisfied with the product, but I would not recommend it for scooters like mine. A longer ramp would make it more user-friendly for scooters. As is, it is best used for dirt bikes. 573840

bought this carrier cause it said you could use it for scooters. I have a 2015 yamaha smax 150 scooter, it weighs 329 lbs well within the capability of the carrier. after carrying the bike 125 miles the rear tire side had sagged down a long ways. got bike off raised up that side retightened bolts. got back home with nothing breaking. but was sweating bullets. And it had sagged down again. this thing is really flimsy but in there defense it is designed for small motor cycles where the weight of the engine is centered over the center of the carrier. With a scooter all of the weight is on rear wheel where its weak and flimsy. etrailer should not recommend this flimsy carrier to scooter owners. I don't Know what to do with it now that I have tightened the bolts so much that the flimsy metal is distorted. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE A SCOOTER. if either of the two bolts break on the support strap that end of your scooter is going into the street. 433364

First, let me say that I dealt with two different people in placing my order. The reason being? I was trying to find a motorcycle rack that would accommodate my BMW G310GS (374 lbs curb weight) on the back of a Class C RV. I tried MANY different companies and NONE but etrailer came through for me. All of the previous companies - and there were lots said they couldn't help me, or couldn't recommend a rack for the back of a Class C RV. I was pretty frustrated at this point and when I found one on etrailer that looked like it might work, I was still paranoid that it wouldn't. The first person I worked with offered to call the manufacturer and verify it would be recommend for the back of a Class C RV. Now the amazing thing, they actually call back - that day! I couldn't take the call, so listen to a voice mail. When I called back I was dealing with a second person Meghan, who was dialed in on what I needed and how to get there. I also wanted an anti-rattle gizmo that goes inside your vehicle's trailer receiver. Wasn't clear to me exactly was the dimensions represented in relation to my vehicle. So......... Meghan was VERY patient as I literally went outside to my RV with a tape measure and we conferred on whether the part would fit my vehicle. Double Score: Rack that will work with my Class C RV and the anti-rattle gimzo. Great customer service, and humor to boot!! So.....I am very happy to anoint Meghan as my HERO OF THE DAY. Ya done good! 573600

I cannot say enough about the fit and ease of install. The packaging was a little damaged, although the contents were pristine. I was able to install the hitch on my F350 without jacking up the front end. Few tools and a floor hydraulic jack, to hold the hitch in place while bolting up, was all I needed. I bought this 2" front end hitch receiver to carry bicycles, chairs, and a dirt bike depending on where my wife and I decide to go camping next. Living in Southern Maine, we enjoy camping in our Northern Lite truck bed camper from the White Mountains and into all parts Maine. George and Carol at etrailer were great in letting me know when the product shipped and extended themselves as support for any questions. Thank you for your support! And...glad we could support a Missouri business, as my wife grew up in St. Louis and a proud graduate of Mizzou! 706052

  • Hitch Scooter Carrier for 2018 Honda PCX 150 Scooter for Use on Class B Motorhome
    Any accessory that is to be mounted on the back of an RV - either a motorhome like your Class B or on a trailer or camper - has to be made and rated specifically for that type of use. The reason is that the greater distance between the axle and hitch on such vehicles means more leverage (and more stress) will be applied to that accessory item. On passenger cars the axle-to-hitch distance is much shorter, just a few feet, and this of course puts less stress on the items. You also want...

  • Recommended Hitch Mount Motorcycle Carrier for a Motorhome
    We do have what you need to carry a motorcycle on the back of your motorhome but first I recommend finding out if the RV rated that kind of tongue weight.

    The setup you are considering with the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier part # UF48-979033 would work great as it is RV approved, has more capacity than you'd need for the motorcycle, and also your hitch has more than enough capacity as well for the carrier and bike.

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Motorcycle Carrier For New Honda Ruckus
    The hitch mounted carrier I recommend for your Honda Ruckus is the Ultra-Fab, part # UF48-979033. In my research I found the Ruckus weighs about 195 lbs and has a wheelbase right at 50 inches. The rear wheel measures just over 5 inches on the Ruckus. The # UF48-979033 will hold a motorcycle that weighs up to 500 lbs. The track on this carrier is 5 inches wide and 80 inches long. It also features a ramp. For added security I recommend a hitch receiver lock like part # e98882. This...

  • How Does Hitch Tongue Weight Rating Affect Use of a Motorcycle Carrier on a Toyota Sienna
    The hitches we offer for the Toyota Sienna have a maximum rated tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. This is true for all model years from 2010 through 2013 (I checked several since I do not know your specific year). I have provided a link to our page for all Class III 2-inch hitches for the 2013 Sienna to illustrate some examples. I have also linked an article on hitch classes and capacities. The 350-lb tongue weight rating means that any accessory item you attach to the hitch cannot...

  • Can Rear Doors on 2018 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 Open with Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier Installed
    Based on images I have seen of the trailer hitch position on a 2018 Mercedes Sprinter 2500 you will be able to open the rear doors with the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier # UF48-979033. As far as how much the carrier gets in the way after you opened the doors is hard to say. Depending on what you need to get in or out of the back it might just be easier to pull the rack out. According to my calculations the highest part of the carrier is approximately 5 inches up from the top of the hitch...

  • Motorcycle Carrier Recommendation for RV to Carry Honda Rebel 250
    Not every motorcycle carrier available is rated for the rougher ride quality that is present at the rear of an RV, but the Ultra Fab carrier part # UF48-979033 is rated for RV use and would be a great option. This carrier has a 500 lb capacity which would be more than enough for your Honda Rebel 250. This carrier weighs 51 lbs which is about as light as you'll find. For tie-downs you may also be interested in the part # 3113DAT.

  • Motorhome and RV Compatible Motorcycle Carrier
    Most hitch mounted motorcycle carriers should not be used on a trailer or motorhome. If you would like a motorcycle carrier that will work on a motorhome, I recommend looking at the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033. We were informed by Ultra-Fab that it is okay to use this carrier on a motorhome or trailer. The reason some hitch accessory manufacturers do not recommend using products on trailers or motorhomes is because the trailer hitch on a trailer or motorhome is further...

  • Scooter Carrier and Hitch Recommendation for RV with 4 inch Square Bumper
    If you would like a motorcycle carrier that will work on a motorhome, I recommend looking at the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033. We were informed by Ultra-Fab that it is okay to use this carrier on a motorhome or trailer. For a hitch to mount to your 4 inch bumper (assuming it is rated for the weight of your scooter and carrier), you would want the part # E-100. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported...
