Needed a Title on this that would make it easy to search in the future.
I've seen motor homes with custom made motorcycle lifts and any number of different items on the back. To me nothing is impossible. Its just time, money, knowledge and compromise.
Our Seneca 37FS currently tows a Chevy Silverado pickup with a camper shell on a 6.5 foot, bed crew cab. This is our basement, storage room, box trailer, plus transportation when we are set up away from home. Between the pickup and Seneca, we have 2 bicycles on a rack that is on a double, vertical hitch for the tow bar. The bike rack is above the Blue Ox Tow Bar. 60,000 miles on this rig, on all terrain and it works well.
So as we get older, the bikes are being used less. But, we are finding we could use a golf cart, scooters, ATV or UTV to get around at our Summer and Winter camping areas. Thinking about how to carry it and looking at this area where the bikes are stored. Thinking of a steel platform, welded to the frame and above the tow hitch, but with a socket to the hitch and extending
about 60 inches out back and 8 feet wide, making it 3 inches less than the Seneca on each side. Weight capacity would be about 1000 lbs. Load from the passenger side with ramps. Our total length, towing going down the road, would be around 70 feet, instead of just less than 65 feet.
Question - how would this impact the air ride on the Seneca? Would bigger air bags on suspension be needed?
Okay guys, ask questions, give opinions, tell me what laws I'll be breaking and every other reason I can't or shouldn't do this. Always fun to see how people react to other people's ideas and lifestyles. Thank you in advance for any thoughts on this and taking the time to look at it.
