Dirtbike/moto options...

Brainstorming ideas here.
Anyone have any pics/ideas for hauling dirtbike(s) w/ an airstream (or similar). Hitched on rear/between truck & airstream, or even if trailer converted to some sort of toy hauler. Bike 250-310 lbs.

Drive an SUV so if hitch isn't a good option, maybe hear some ideas/retrofit or PICS of storing inside the airstream itself? Maybe someone has already gone thru the effort of figuring out pros/cons? Thx

There's always the Panamerica, if you can find/afford one. They were a limited run with a "garage" of sorts.

Then there's the Eddie Bauers with a hatch designed to load some larger outdoor gear in them. You'd have to get the bike(s) well forward of the hatch to get the weight on top of the axles, and then find a way to get D-rings securely attached to the trailer for tie-downs.

Front hitch starts interfering with lights and TV cooling with a MX/Eduro. Not really enough room between TV and trailer.

Best bet is the bed of the TV. There's some good elevated bed floors that you can use to keep some secure below deck storage.

I've got mine set up and running for a few years now

Moto front wheel center overhangs the rear axle center by 2" forward, yet still have access to the refer with 1/4" clearance.

I read a thread here in Air Forums about a fella who wanted a Basecamp to haul his motorcycle. The basecamp rear end lifts up.

There are many toy hauler trailers out there that would serve your purpose.
