Motorcycle carrier....

Does the frame of a 2012 Flying Cloud 25' have the strength to support a frame mounted motorcycle carrier off the back?? The motorcycle is <450 lbs.

Hanging anything off the back of the trailer has been highly discouraged. Even a bicycle rack was thought to be questionable, although Airstream is now selling them for newer trailers. One thing for sure-that much weight off the back will make for some interesting, and scary, handling.
