Trailer hitch receiver and motorcycle carrier for 2021 Tesla Model 3


Has anyone tried adding a motorcycle carrier? I’d like to transport a Honda Ruckus or Grom, which is about 200-250 lbs. tongue weight for the stealth hitch is 350 lbs…any experience with that? Thanks in advance


Expert Reply:

You are correct in saying that the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # 391TES317 has a tongue weight capacity of 350lbs. That means the receiver is definitely capable of transporting a lightweight motorcycle (200-250lbs) as long as the carrier is lightweight and the overall tongue weight is under 350lbs. The etrailer Motorcycle Carrier w/ Ramp for 2" Hitch - 76" Long # e98873 weighs 58lbs and would be a great option to check out. I don't have any photos showing a motorcycle carrier on this receiver, unfortunately. The Stealth receiver is for accessories only, not towing.

One more thing to keep in mind is that the tongue weight is not only limited by the receiver's capacity, but also the vehicle's capacity which is determined by Tesla. I couldn't find any concrete numbers that Tesla released regarding this, so you will want to confirm with Tesla or check your owner's manual to verify that you won't be exceeding your vehicle's capacity.
