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.

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.

i bought this to take my scooter while RVing this summer. I was floored when i found out it was 70 pounds! but with a bit of effort i got it to my condo. Then was overwhelmed when i saw all the pieces. BUT the instructions were great and easy to follow and it had all the tools i needed. it only took me 1 1/2 hours to put together all by myself and i was expecting to have to all someone! the product itself is very durable, it will be very useful to me.

i didnt ...my scooter wouldnt fit, very disappointed

This product has adjustable wheel holders to accommodate multiple wheelbases. If it is the ramp that you are having trouble with, you can park near a hill or incline to make it easier to push your scooter up.

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.

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.



- e98873
by:

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.



- e98873

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



- e98873
by:

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



- e98873
by:

This is a great rack and very solid with a couple of shortcomings I suspect are common to the breed. What I like: rack is solid and provides for stability when attaching, loading, hauling, and unloading. The three position hitch and solid screw-in hitch were selling points to me, allowing me to adjust how close to the vehicle it rides. I mount this on a Jeep Rubicon and the middle position works well with the stock spare tire. If you have too large of a spare it might interfere. The included tow hooks, reflectors, and ramp make it ready to use after a few minutes of assembly. (Hint, use a couple of clamps to compress the springs to attach the bolts). What could be better: the ramp is very short and makes it tough to load with just one person. I went a got a longer ramp from Harbor Freight and it is much easier. The flex, which is a feature, can mean that the bike is suddenly headed downhill and rolls off the rack while loading. I cut a 2x6 and 2x4 to make a stop (trimming the edges to fit in between the rails) and now have a reversible chock. Be careful when assembling you don’t tighten the long rack bolts too tight, which can pull the rails out of true. TL;DR - a great rack for the money that a few improvements can make even better.

Product looks to be well built and was delivered timely. However, lack of proper packaging and protection caused scratches all over the unit from pieces rubbing together inside the box. Additionally, several screws/washers required for assembly were missing. Both can be fixed with touch up paint and a few parts from the hardware store, but this shouldn't be needed from a brand new product

  • Transporting 2016 Ninja 300 on 2006 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with etrailer.com Motorcycle Carrier
    The etrailer.com Motorcycle Carrier w/ Ramp # e98873 that you referenced is a great solution for transporting your 2016 Ninja 300 behind the 2006 Porsche Cayenne. If the total length of your bike is just a few inches over the track's 76-1/4" length it won't be an issue, as the extra length would just be part of the tire beyond the platform like you mentioned. If you take a look at the attached image you will see how the bike is technically a bit longer then the carrier from end to end,...

  • Which Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier is Ideal for Carrying a Scooter
    Since scooters sometimes have a pretty low ground clearance the best motorcycle carrier solution would be the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201 which has a totally flat tray without any raised sections. Also what makes this more ideal for a scooter is that the tray tilts down instead of requiring a ramp which also helps with ground clearance since the transition from the ramp to the tray would be a possible ground clearance issue with a scooter.

  • Recommended Motorcycle Carrier to Use on 2 Inch Hitch on 2013 Toyota 4Runner
    I have a solution for you, but there is no way to increase the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle and unfortunately a front mounted hitch would actually have a lower capacity than a rear mounted hitch, so it's not a great option. I'll also add that this would not be the proper application for a weight distribution hitch like the # PS49583 you were looking at, since those are designed to redistribute the weight on a trailer off of the rear axle of a vehicle.

The LED's are more expensive, but they'll be much brighter and draw just a fraction of the electricity that the incandescent bulbs do.
