What is a good hitch carrier?


New member

I am new to the motorcycle world.

Long story short is I now own a 2004 Yamaha WR450F (325 lbs or so) dirt bike.

I am thinking to get a front hitch for my 2002 Ford F350 and hang the bike on the front and ATVs on the rear deck and tow the travel trailer.

The help I need from you or others you know, is what is a good motorcycle hitch carrier? Brand and model name would be appreciated as well as any feedback/pros/cons in regards to the hitch carriers.

I have heard the Harbour Freight aluminum carrier the knobby ties always get badly stuck on the travel rack to the point go having to be payed out of the hole.

I was thinking initially to go with aluminium but after reading reviews etc it seems like steel might be the way to go.

What are you folks using the works or conversely does not work?

Are you or anyone you know selling their hitch bike carrier?

I look forward to your reply.
