Wife and I both have Harleys. She has been riding her own scoot since 03 and I started when I was 16 (64 now). We have an enclosed motorcycle trailer and if we want the scoots on a trip she pulls the scoots and I pull the camper. Yes, that's expensive but it can be worth it.
Also need to let the campground know that you have an additional trailer. There are double sites (again expensive) and there are ways to store the trailer at other campgrounds.

we just turned this into a HD thread...ooops! @eldermike, we like your state of NC..we really like Maggie Valley, also, wife and I have been kayaking on the Natahala since the 90s...rafting the Ocoee and the Little Pigeon Rivers too....
@satchmo...have done the skyway and don't forget the Blue Ridge parkway...we have done part of it when we had the 1500 GW...
since this is a jayco forum, I better say something about the great jayco line....we're absolutely a jayco family, we're on our 4th one. bought our first new one
in 1987 or 88...long time ago. have stayed true to the brand ever since...down sized to the 184BH in 2011....we're two old military retirees in our 60s and spending our grand kids inheritance..have been doing a mighty fine job of it since 1991...you guys take care and enjoy the Fall Colors...ride safe and play safe...

Getting back to the original post, a heavy bike, that big of a trailer, and a 1/2 ton truck is asking a lot of the 1/2 ton truck.

I find a slight rise to back my pickup to, then pull out the ramps and drive an ATV on. Same to take it off. If you've got too much weight with the HD for the tailgate, remove it, although it's a whole lot easier to remove the gate on my '85 F250 than the 350. Might need some help backing it off, but doable.
