Is this right for you? Product Expert Matthew S says:

Yes, if you:

  • Want to avoid getting on your hands and knees to line up the hitch pin holes every time you install the carrier
  • Will be using the carrier on more than 1 vehicle and need multiple hitch pin holes to avoid bumper clearance issues
  • Prefer a solid ramp - easier to roll your bike up than a ramp with slats

No, if you:

  • Want the extra security provided by wheel clamps

Motorcycle Carrier on SUV

This convenient hitch-mounted carrier lets you transport your dirt bike, scooter, e-bike, or moped on the back of your vehicle. The carrier is easier to connect to your vehicle than a conventional trailer, gives you more freedom to maneuver over bumpy and hilly terrain, and doesn't have to be registered like a trailer. It includes a sturdy, lightweight ramp that attaches to the steel frame, making it quick and easy to load and unload your motorcycle. It also includes a stop collar that automatically aligns the pin holes on the carrier and your hitch for a quick installation every time you use it.

Adjustable Wheel Holders

Motorcycle Alignment Collar

The platform has wheel holders that help steady your bike and prevent it from rolling. It has multiple pins on each side that accommodate different wheel bases. Simply remove one of the pins on each side to create an open space for each wheel to rest. The pins have a locknut, so you will need to use (2) 3/4" wrenches (sold separately) to remove them.

Multiple Tie-Down Points

Motorcycle Carrier Tie Down Points

There are 6 tie-down points on the carrier - 2 eyebolts in the front, 2 integrated eyelets along the shank, and 2 eyebolts at the rear. These tie-down points let you secure your bike to the carrier with ratchet straps (sold separately). The eyebolts simply bolt to the carrier for easy installation.

40" Loading Ramp

Motorcycle Carrier Ramp

The carrier includes a ramp that is nearly 40" long and 5" wide. The ramp makes it easy to roll your motorcycle on and off the carrier. The carrier has attachment points for the ramp on the driver's and passenger's side, so you can load your bike from either direction. Small plates on both sides of the ramp secure it to the carrier so it won't accidentally disconnect while you are loading or unloading your bike.

Motorcycle Ramp Pins

To install the ramp unscrew the 2 pins that secure the ramp to the carrier. Remove the ramp from the carrier and slide the lip of the ramp over the attachment point on either side of the carrier. When you are done place the ramp back on the carrier and screw the pins back in.

Automatic Hitch Pin Hole Alignment

Motorcycle Alignment Collar

The stop collar automatically aligns the pin holes on the shank and your hitch every time you install the carrier. It prevents you from having to get on your hands and knees to check for pinhole alignment. It's quick and easy to install, just slide the collar onto the shank, insert the carrier into your hitch, align the pin holes, slide the collar up against your hitch, and tighten down the bolt with included hand knobs. Once it's set up you never have to adjust it again.

Multiple Hitch Pin Holes for Perfect Fit

Hitch Pin Holes

The carrier's shank has 3 hitch pin holes to accommodate vehicles with varying clearance requirements. The carrier also includes a threaded, anti-rattle hitch bolt to secure the carrier to your vehicle. This bolt reduces vibration and noise in the hitch for a smooth, quiet ride.

Durable Steel Construction

Motorcycle Alignment Collar

The carrier is made of durable steel that will hold up to 500 pounds. It's sturdier than many aluminum carriers that can only hold up to 400 pounds, so it will accommodate heavier dirt bikes. It has a black powder coat finish that looks great and is corrosion resistant.

Hauls a 300lb scooter well. The included ramp is too short for practical use. I purchased a 6ft aluminum dirt bike ramp from etrailer and bolted it up front.

The ramp is nearly 40 inches long and should be long enough to work with most vehicles.

I did look into a wheel chock for the carrier however there is not one currently available. We do carry ratchet straps that you can use with the tie down points on the carrier. It is part # SS6-SL14
Motorcycle Tie Downs - Cam Buckle Straps with Shock Absorbers and Loop Straps - Qty 4
. You mentioned that you were using this carrier with a KLR 650 which weighs close to 500 pounds. This could be overloading the tongue of your hitch if your hitches tongue weight is 500 pounds. The weight of the carrier is approximately 67 pounds which you will want to factor it with the weight of the motorcycle.

I am a fan of etrailer and this product is one of the reasons I go there for anything towing related.
I placed the order on the 12th, and today is the 14th. My product was delivered, I installed it in about 30 minutes and now it is loaded and ready to go. Number one: Fast delivery. Number two: Easy instructions. Number three: Excellent quality. I needed a hitch mounted ebike or motorcycle carrier to transport my Segway which weighs 121 pounds that included a ramp. This product not only fit the bill but did so at an excellent price.
Fast delivery, great quality, excellent price. What is there not to love?


I can’t really even rate because I haven’t been able to put it together to use. The carrier did NOT come with any of the assembly hardware. I have a pile of metal sitting in the corner of the garage. I requested a replacement but that wasn’t an option, I requested the hardware and an order was placed but sat unfulfilled for 4 months then cancelled. Needless to say I wasted a good amount of money and still do not have a functional carrier. etrailer please help me out

It certainly looks like we left you on read. I have contact our customer service team with your information and they will be reaching out to you in the near future. Thanks for reaching back out to us for another shot to making thing right.

I carry a 250 XC motorcycle on this carrier. I can use it on the front of my 2008 Tundra with the Draw Tight hitch when I pull the drift boat or have my single pontoon boat in the bed. This way I can do my own shuttles when fishing the rivers.I have also used this carrier on our Pleasure Way RV which in on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis.

Works great to haul my 1982 Yamaha 250XT. I use it for shuttling myself on river trout fishing trips. I load the pontoon in the bed on the 2008 Tundra and the motorcycle on the front.

I bought the etrailer motorcycle hitch carrie rto drive my son and his 500 lbs motorcycle to college at CU Boulder from Virginia. It handled great with no problems. I would have rated it 5 stars but the main bolt that connects it stripped when I went to pick him up a year later. Simply bolt a through bolt washer nut and lock washer for the trip back.


Package came destroyed from transit. Missing all hardware and ramp. etrailer took care of everything in a timely manner. Everything else that I have purchased has been awesome.


This trailer is very well built and easy to put together. Since it's a universal fit into the truck tow hitch there will be a bit of play in the trailer. I love the additional strap hooks for tie down.


Nicely built, but ramp is a little on the short side. Not a big issue. The real issue is that the threaded hitch pin is too short. It does not pass through to the other side of the 2x2 receiver. I have no clue what anyone else is doing, but this is a big problem for me.


The assembly was long and hard for Me. If You don't have the proper socket set the included wrenches will leave You working way too hard. Final product after assembly is great. Just what I needed for this long wheel base bike. Ramp is so helpful in loading. I also purchased the retractable straps. Not yet tested on the road . Weather coming in will delay that.


Strong, painted, all locking nuts, tiedowns located appropriately, anxious to try it.


I bought this for my E-scooter hoping it would work with the 10” little tires my scooter has, but it doesn’t cause the brake disc nearly rub and hit the center bridge support. I was a little disappointed that it didn’t work cause this Thing is very well built and works awesome!! . I hat e to get rid of it, but it doesn’t work for my needs. Put it together was very simple. Just take your time and follow the instructions.


Order arrived incomplete (manufacturer packaging issue) eTrailer had it resolved and shipped a replacement same day. Very satisfied customer!


Motorcycle rack has worked great so far. Use it almost every weekend to go ride. Easy to put on and take off.


I haven't used it yet. It could be highly improved if it came with a wheel chock, which would make much easier to use and balance the bike. I bought this to hold a KLR 650 which is right close to 500 lbs and after trying it, did not feel secure in using it for that bike.


Great design, easy installation, very s olid!

Used in conjunction with a curt front hitch on my 2011 3500 Silverado, we have driven thousands of miles around the north and northwest. Our motorcycle is loaded quickly and easily. The travel is solid and absolutely no movement. I couldn’t be any happier.

Worked like a charm!!!


Purchased for TW200 . Simple to put together , Just tested it. Well made, durable. Easy to Install and Remove. Would Recommend.


Would have given it 5 stars but the ramp needs to be twice the length that it is. The carrier itself is very strong and it has plenty of tie down locations. Great product overall. Hauling a 250 with it


looks good so far, ramp needs to be longer, if you could make the ramp 77 inches.


This is a well built product. Fast deli very.


It is heavy, but that reflects its stur diness.


I’ve been ill for a couple years and haven’t had the strength to manage any long motorcycle rides. This carrier has allowed me to take my motorcycle on road trips on the back of my Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and enjoy my Ninja at the destination. Even as an abnormally weakened 120lb woman, I have been able to load and unload the bike myself. I’m thrilled with this carrier.


Awesome trailer for my son's mini-bike. Built very well and very good quality. would definitely buy from etrailer again! Also, the product came fast. Thanks


Easy to assemble which took less than an hour.
I watched YouTube and read some reviews before purchasing and got some grip tape for the ramp which I would highly suggest doing. I have a Kawasaki KLR 650 at 320lbs and a Ford F150. With a hitch on both the front and back. The front sits 20 inches high so I had an easy time loading and unloading myself whereas the rear sits 26 inches high which makes the ramp steeper and more difficult to load. The unit itself seems to be sturdy and I feel comfortable trusting it. I think putting it on the rear of my truck is the best option due to the fact that if you had to stop real fast and the unit broke it would hit the tailgate instead of ending up on the road. Overall I like it and would recommend it.


This is a great ramp, very sturdy and easy to assemble. I use it to carry a 150cc scooter and so far so good on the first trip. The ramp is short if you have a hitch more then 15 inches off the ground but for me it works fine. The folks at etrailer did a get job on getting it me quickly and they did a fast reshipment due to a damaged shipping container. I would definitely buy again from etrailer
