Need help with motorcycle rack selection

Just bought a 50cc moped. A little guy... and I'm an Airstream 16' DWR female tower who travels the midwest with my little white dog. I got the moped to run the trails with the dog and didn't want to get a special driver's license.

Is there a way to hook this bike up to the rear of my Airstream? I drive an F350 diesel and found ramps that would work to load it into the bed, but I thought it would be easier to just hook it up on the end of my whole load and go. Any thoughts out there?

I'm in my early 50's and pretty strong (farm girl). My hubby hates camping so I take the camera and the dog and go!

Thanks to anyone offering suggestions.

I would mount it on a rack on the front of the truck. I wouldn't want to put stress on the rear of the AS

The bed is the safest place for it.

Airstream offers a bike rack for the back of the newer trailers (except for the sport models) that may work if the moped doesn't weigh much more then 2 bikes.

If it's not to hard to lift the moped onto the rack it is probably not too heavy.
