Transporting Bikes with Your Fifth Wheel Campers

July 14th, 2010   |   No Comments   |   Posted in Toy Hauler

Recently a post on HDTalking.com caught our attention. A travel enthusiast was trying to find the best way to transport his Harley with his fifth wheel trailer.

One possible solution he was considering was to put a carrier into the receiver “hitch on rear tow of vehicle” that the bike would actually sit on. A 600-700 lb bike is a lot of weight aft of rear axle when most vehicles have class III hitches and a carrying weight of 500 lbs.

Another option under consideration was to tow a trailer behind the fifth wheel camper trailer which not only makes it extremely difficult to drive (seriously…towing a trailer behind your camper trailer and vehicle is just crazy!), but also can present significant structural issues such as putting too much stress on the frame of your vehicle which can reduce your pin weight or bend your hitch or frame.

There is very little room for error when you are either towing a trailer behind a fifth wheel RV or hitching your bike to the rear of your camper. Worst case scenario you can wreck, lose your bike, or a combination of both! If you have the need for a fifth wheel and also need to travel with your bike, you may want to consider a toy hauler trailer instead.
