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

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

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

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

Product came just as pictured. Very easy to put together, less then 20 min. Test fit with a 2016 Husqvarna and it did great. 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

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 was a little concerned that the lower price might reflect quality of this carrier, i was pleasantly surprised. This is a solid carrier easy to load easy to unload, I've been trying it for a while before i take a trip, and i almost forget its there. I went out and bought an extra 8" bolt because i only haul the one bike and do not need the tire diameter adjustability. The extra bolt keeps the front up on the rails and doesn't drop in until the last dip rather than in the last two dips. TIP: Get the ramp put back on right away before you fully strap the bike down, otherwise the strap hooks interfere with getting the ramp in place. GREAT PRODUCT, FAST SHIPPING, GREAT WEB SITE! Keep up the good work etrailer! 425435

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

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

Assembly took 30 minutes. Pretty easy. Seems solidly built. Would recommend anti-wobble bracket to reduce/eliminate the hitch play. Haven't used it yet. Customer service(emails and followup) has been good. Good company it seems. 363543

Received the product within three days from ordering. Easy to assemble for left or right hand entry. Attached to our 35' Winnebago Sightseer to haul our Yamaha Vino scooter. First use was from Medina, Ohio to the Finger Lakes, NY. No issues, works perfect! The Anit-Tilt is a must as it prevents any wobble from the hitch and receiver! 438812

I have not used this on the road yet as I just installed it, but these are my initial impressions: Pros: 1. The build quality seems good and strong 2. The assembly was easy 3. It is relatively compact to store and mount, much better option then storing a trailer in my garage. 4. Cost is great. 5. Super easy to load the bike on and off. 6. It looks pretty awesome with the bike on it, and I can actually load the bike the night before and it still fits in my garage so I can leave early the next day. Cons: 1. The ramp is mounted on the same brace as the bike tie down hook. So getting it on and off while the bike is mounted is not the easiest, you can do it but you need to really wiggle it in. Ideally if you have two people you put the ramp in before you tie the bike down but its not always possible. 2. When the bike is loaded on the ramp without the tie downs, it does not stand on its own so you can walk around easily and tie it down. You need to do a balancing act to get it secured. This isn't really an issue with the ramp, and I'm not sure of a solution, but maybe something to consider if you plan on loading and unloading by yourself with a 60k SUV just moments away from a bike accidentally falling on it.. 440858

Nice little rack for use on the back of our small motorhome. I haul a Honda Grom 125cc street bike for errands, etc. I had to modify the rack by adding cross bars at each end with steel tie-down loops so that I could secure the bike better. With the stock, center tie-down points, the straps rubbed and would cause paint/finish damage. The wife was not crazy about "her" bike getting damaged. Otherwise, it works as advertised. I added a few additional washers here and there that I thought should have been included as well.... 307949

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Scooter/Cycle Carrier for Class A Motorhome and SUV
  • The only motorcycle carrier we offer that is approved for use on the rear of a motorhome is the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033. The carrier itself has a 500 lb capacity, so it will easily handle the weight of your scooter, but you will be limited by the capacity of the receiver its used in. You will need to ensure that the receiver on your motorhome and SUV can handle the weight of the scooter plus the approximate 50 lb weight of the carrier.

  • 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...

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.

With this hitch Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any non-trailer load (such as a bike rack or cargo carrier) per their warranty requirements. For a hitch with a higher capacity that does not require the strap I recommend # C13702....

The best solution I could provide for you would be the motorcycle carrier part # UF48-979033 that has a 600 lb capacity and has a shipping weight of 65 lbs. When out of the packaging it should be right at 60 lbs, but for safety's sake you could load the ramp of the carrier in the bed of your truck to save weight from the front hitch.

  • Recommended Hitch Motorcycle Carrier with Ramp for 400-lb BMW on 2015 Chevrolet Silverado
  • For a 400-lb motorcycle you will want a carrier rated for more than this weight, to give you some safety margin, such as the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033, which has a 500-lb capacity and a 39-inch ramp. To lock it to your hitch use # 7683. Your hitch receiver must also have the tongue weight (TW) capacity required for the combined weight of the 95-lb carrier plus the weight of your BMW. Ideally you would use this carrier in a hitch like the Curt # C14006 which has a 1000-lb TW rating.
