Hauling your motorcycle or scooter with you on vacation or going back to college couldn't be simpler with this hitch mounted carrier from Tilt-a-Rack. With the loading ramp and an extension built right in, all you do is push the bike up the ramp until the front wheel rests in the adjustable wheel chock and the ramp deck levels out. Two sizes are available, so this motorcycle carrier works great for dirt bikes, motocross and other smaller motorcycles, too
**NEVER exceed your vehicles carrying capacity or trailer hitch capacity. Most Class II hitches are typically rated at 350 lbs, Class III hitches are 500 lbs (Please refer to capacity sticker on the trailer hitch). Some vehicles may require air shocks or other modifications to the vehicles suspension. Please check your owners manual for vehicle hauling capabilities.
I just assembled the rack. It took a couple of tries to get my Yamaha IT 490 tied down. This is a great rack. The only issue I had was the advertising sticker is one the wrong side of the rack. If they send me a new sticker I will put it on to advertise this rack. Dave
This rack is easy to assemble, install and works so easily for our new Vespa. Highly recommended
i have a 150 vespa scooter and have used this ramp for the last year. it is mounted on the back of my motorhome so a bit high. easy loading and unload for one person ..me and I am 67. the first one i bought i tore up in a gas station when i hit a cement barrier. the aluminum rack broke at the middle swivel binding saving the scooter from being twisted. If i had a steel one it would have possibly have bent the frame of the bike. I was able to tie the rack together and travel another 900 miles to home with bike. i don't think this could have been done with a different rack.
This is the best solution I could find for being able to load / unload a motorcycle solo. Having the height lower than the truck bed makes it much easier and makes it less of a chance of the bike falling over. The ramp is very well constructed - has heavy duty steel where needed and lightweight aluminum where is makes sense. The ability of the ramp to be able to pivot makes it miles ahead of other ramps that are stationary and have a high angle ramp to try and load. The parts were packed well in the cardboard box. The only comment is that the instructions appear to be for when the hardware was less heavy duty and are not very clear, but just by looking at the picture, it is pretty obvious how everything is to go together. Very happy with my purchase. Ordering, communication and delivery time from Discount Ramps was all great. Would order from them again.
put a hitch on front of my 2012 3500 dodge then cycle ramp does great carring a yamaha tw 200 and still able to pull trailor great for use on farm
Much sturdier than the harbor freight one I had, very convenient to load by yourself, that's why I bought it. I gave it 3 stars not 5 because the pin that holds the handle back when tilted has a notch ground into it. It is welded on backwards so the handle could slip off the smooth side when loading or unloading. I just thought it should have been caught by the welder or quality control. If it was all correct it would definitely be 5 stars since it is a nice unit.
Purchased this to use with our RV. We carry a Genuine Scooter Blur with us, which is not a light scooter, weighing 325 lbs. We purchased the 400lb version, and it is amazing. The extendable ramp makes loading simple, and the fully adjustable wheel chock allowed us to make a perfect fit around the front tire. Overall quality is excellent, with well engineered components and high quality materials. It's light enough that we can quickly move it from our RV to our truck, or anything with a 2" hitch receiver. Scooters are a little heavy in the rear end, so if I had to nit pick, my only complaint would be that it's not quite as easy as loading a motorcycle, because not enough of the weight of the scooter gets up the ramp to allow it to pivot forward. You just need to lift a bit on the back end of the scooter. It does require two,people, but that is a result of the scooter's design, not the ramp. Aside from the excellent ramp, the customer service at DiscountRamps also gets 5 stars. We ordered our ramp with an anti rattle hitch pin. The bolt snapped the first time we used it. It was clearly a manufacturer's defect. With one call to customer service, a replacement was sent out the next day. The customer service rep was outstanding!
This is the best scooter carrier!! Assembly was quick and easy. The unit itself is ideal for one person loading and unloading. I specifically bought it so my wife would not struggle if she were left alone to transport one of our two scooters.
