Has anyone bought and used a pickup bed-installed motorcycle lift? I saw one at last year's MOA rally (can't remember the brand name) which seemed to work really well. 2 others are Triple D motorcycle loader and AmeriDeck. I am researching options for transporting a motorcycle while pulling a decent-sized trailer, say 26 feet. Don't want a 5th wheel hitch and am leaning away from a toy hauler. I don't have a lot of specific requirements as yet other than I would definitely want a pickup with an 8 foot bed. I am still in the talking to people, looking at their trucks and trailer stage.

Hopefully these links work.

Any info or anecdotes will be appreciated.

I want to remember Calvin No Socks unloading his scoot with one of these in Red Lodge.


I was in Switzerland recently and I didn't see one person with a knife!

I have their "cruiserlift" on the back of the RV. Works good. They have a pickup bed loader that I have not seen but looks good. Pickup bed loader

Don't blame you for shying away from Toyhaulers, most are heavy and cheaply made. There's a used Rampage lift listed for sale on advrider. PM'd a linky but if you're not registered on that forum it may not work. It looks like a good deal.

Hi Dave,

I have emailed 2 of the manufacturers for quotes. They don't seem to want to put prices on their websites. Thanks for fixing the links! The resident computer expert here was napping at the time. grin

Checked out their video. Definitely on my research list.

Thanks!

Don't knock the toyhaulers.

I bought this one to haul my Jeep around. We put maybe 10k miles on it before we sold it because of getting stationed overseas. Easily held a 4k pound Jeep and pulled quite nicely. We never had any issue with this rig, it was a Coachman Catalina.
