Hey all,

Ive been looking at bike haulers that hook up to the hitch. I like sarge industries. I have been looking into the mx hauler that needs no ramps. It uses a jack and lowers the bike to the ground an dyou can use it as a work rack for the bike. Ive seen it made by two different makers. Has anyone used , own or have anyone that transport with one. Please let me know. In the market to buy one. I like both ideas. :cry:

My hauler has gotten kinda stupid. It started life out as a new 2004 Cargomate 16 ft X 7 wide. Since, I have added an awning, built in ramp carriers underneath, ceiling fan/vent, porch light, forward mounted hanging cabinet with a Suburban 20,000 BTU theromostatically controlled furnace, a 2000 watt AC inverter, 60 AMP RV intelli-charger with smart wizard, 9,000 BTU Coleman Polar Cub roof mounted AC, AM/FM/CD Pioneer stereo, all wired for 12V and 110VAC, 50 ft of E-track, 16 floor rings, flip out step for RV side door. Its repulsive. But on those overnight rides, its nice comfy and warm. I have built accessories like tables etc to clip into the etrack. Everything comes out except the overhead forward cabinet where all the utilities are mounted. I suppose a receiver hith mounted bike hauler would of been eaiser, but it was fun building! ;D

One of my buddies has the Moto Jack Rack--I highly recommend it; very strong and well put togther. Make sure your "tow vehicle's" hitch is high enough off the ground (no cars or vans) tahoe,suburban,4x4 pickups will work ok.

I have the Moto Jack Rack and love it. Just today at the end of the ride, the other guys were like, "Man you got it easy, we still have to load our bikes". They are right, I got it easy with that setup. It is very solid, easy to use, and better than running up a ramp at the end of a long ride. Hope this helps.:cry:

I also have the Moto jack rack, I have had no problems with it. It is so much easier than a trailer.:cry:

Although, I'm getting my son his first bike in the spring. So, it looks like it's back to the trailer.:cry:

Yeah, the new format doesnt allow me unless I call it a motorcycle. I had to cheat just to get my utility quad in there by calling it a LTZ. I think the moderators should allow us to show off the toy haulers!:cry: :cry:
