Carrying a scooter
« on: July 31, 2016, 06:50:09 PM »
Hello all,
Looking for opinions.
Carry a scooter on front of truck (need to address blocked headlights) or on rear (camper is 1.5 feet past rear of truck and have rear entry door)
What say you?

Thanks, Kevin

Buy a small trailer and tow it with the scooter on it.

Yeah, either a 4'X4' or a 4'x8' utility trailer. If you get the Harbor Freight fold up type you can store it easier at camp and home.

You will need a hitch extension to get out from under the camper.

Am thinking about a Honda Rebel behind my Class A (which I don't own yet.)  Is there a rack I can put into my hitch receptacle so I don't have to use a trailer that would hold a Honda Rebel.  It weighs 330 pounds dry weight....so probably 350 total.

I made one when I worked at a fab shop to carry a 77 CB750 Honda on the front of a 78 GMC 2500 in 1980, but with all plastic on the front of the newer trucks would be difficult to do at best. I also had a TC 125 on the back bumper Ext angle iron and expanded metal on on back. Still got 10mpg. Yeah the peanut farmer drove me to Texas from Michigan.
