Carrying 2 mopeds

Hey all

Just installed a hitch on my truck with camper shell and am wondering what you'd recommend getting to be able to carry 2 mopeds.

I was originally thinking a cargo carrier, but would be curious to see what you all use

I made this one from scrap...

As much as I’d love to make one, I currently don’t have the means, nor ability to do so hah

These are great though

Just toss 'em in the back and pack yer stuff around 'em . ;)

Re: Carrying 2 mopeds

Built this specifically for my G3 which is kinda big and heavy, but I could probably fit two normal size mopeds on. Just a basic wire mesh utility cargo rack thingy that I decked with cedar fence pickets (super duper cheap and weather resistant) and used carriage bolts to fasten them on. Originally was gonna use the cheap wheel chock from Harbor Freight but got the fancy one instead. They’re a bit wide for mopeds so some pool noodles sliced down the middle solves that problem and adds extra cushion.

Trying to find some example pics of mopeds actually on it; I’ve hauled a bunch of varying sizing but haven’t gotten pics. Here’s the Sachs and then a Magnum for scale. (edited)

Buy this and never worry about it again. Fits two mopeds very easily, and fits most smaller motos with room to spare

Those heavy duty baskets aren’t a bad way to go. The harbor freight ones are surprisingly decent and can be modified to accommodate two peds with some extra metal in the mix. What ever you decide I highly recommend a hitch raise. Keeps that fun dragging noise at bay every time you go in and out of parking lots or quick incline. This one is a 10” and kept my 1 bike carrier from getting the attention of every gas station I rolled into. The longer it sticks out more it’ll drag something to keep in mind. Let’s us know what you end up with!

Re: Carrying 2 mopeds

Yup, I second this suggestion. After the first 1,000 miles with my carrier I got one of these and what an improvement! No drag and also like the several extra inches of clearance it gave between the bike and my rear window.

Also, hitch stabilizers are a must!!! It’s that u-bolty thing on the extender. I recommend two if you’re using an extender- one from the hitch to extender and then one from the extender to the carrier. Pretty much eliminates any and all teeter-tottering while driving down the road.
