Although we have been reading this forum for quite sometime, this is our first time commenting. We too are looking at options so we take our Honda Goldwing motorcycle with us when we begin full timing this fall.
From the get-go we wanted to take our motorcycle with us. We researched RVs for 1.5 years before purchasing our MS. One of the many reasons we purchased a MS is because we felt the frame is better than most 5th wheels which would allow us to pull a motorcycle.
We have also been researching our options on how to take our motorcycle with us. We have known from the beginning that many states do not allow triple towing. Our conclusion was to find a way to pull the Motorcycle in the states that we could and the states we can not we will disconnect the motorcycle and one of us will drive the rig set up and the other motorcycle.
Although this is a little inconvenient, the thought of not taking the motorcycle is very disheartening. Our plan is to drive from state to state and to stay for a long period of time in one or two places within that state. We would travel around on our motorcycle from this area. This means that it is only a matter of driving the motorcycle and RV separately short distances at a time to our RV spot.
We have researched our options and have come up with three options. First there is a Blue Ox carrier that has one wheel that tracks well behind the RV. Website is:
Another option is a motorcycle trailer that folds up when not in use. One could just fold it and put in the back of the truck when not using it. We are still researching this option as we want to be sure it will handle a Goldwing. They say it will. Website is:
The third options is using a light weigh trailer that will carry the motorcycle but when the need to disconnect the motorcycle comes into play-the motorcycle could then pull this light weight trailer. We are not keen on this option, but are still investigating it.
Hope this information helps those of you that are looking to take your motorcycle along with you. If any of you have any other suggestions or comments we would be love to hear them!
