Burgman 650 scooter on RV

Need help, looking online several vendors claim their hitch carrier can hold up to 600 lbs. Have a 30 foot Airstream and am looking to carry my scooter on the back. Does anyone have any experience with hauling something like this. Appreciate any input.

Not recommended for trailers. The Airstream is not built to carry that weight (590 lbs) on the frame. Keep in mind that the force applied to the frame is compounded if the scooter sits at the rear and the trailer bounces. I have a Yamaha Majesty (467 lbs) which is not as heavy as the Burgman, but if I take it, it will be in my van tied down inside. What I need at this time is a ramp to get it up and down out of the van.

I think Snickers has a motorhome. Don't know what they are rated to carry on the hitch, but I suspect it's much more than an Airstream trailer.

I missed that when writing my reply. Towing limit rating is 3,000 lbs for the 30' Land Yacht. What I'm wondering is the hitch weight limits? Typically motor homes are not pulling things that have heavy hitch weights.
