Taking our Motorscooters in our Jay Feather

Has anyone figured out how to take two motor scooters in, on or around our Jay Feather Light? Without buying a pickup, that is.

What have you tried that didn't work? What have you tried that worked?

I haven't tried fitting them in through the door....yet.

Welcome kwlyon!! From a fellow Cincinnatian, do you camp nearby, like Hueston Woods and Brookville?

Rack on front bumper of TV and rack on rear bumper of trailer. Just make sure the hitches have proper ratings. Are the scooters under 250 pounds?

Jayfeathers are not supposed to have anything attached to the bumpers. The bumpers are flimsy and not rated for anything.

I looked at doing this and measured my door. Even if I removed the mirrors, my scoot still wouldn't fit.

I have heard of many Jayco rear bumpers tearing loose when a bicycle rack is attached. I guess they are not very strong. I would have a hitch welded to the frame of the travel trailer and load the scooters on that maybe.

I was thinking of going this route. The only problem I could see was the fact that a tt suspension ( or lack thereof ) would cause so much bounce in the rear, you would have some major issues with higher stress on the welds and bouncing severe enough that your scoot could fly off. I think the best route to go is to just buy a pickup and haul it in the bed. That's what I'm going to do anyway. Someday......
