I own a Motor Home (Winnebago Journey 36) and did quite a bit of research on how to take the LT along. Everybody that had credibility and no interest in selling something warned me that almost a thousand pounds sticking way out puts too much weight on the frame and suspension. I heard stories about cracked frames etc. Not sure what is fact and what is legend. But when I looked under my unit and saw how the frame is laid out hanging thousand pounds way on the end just did not look right.
Also look at how much overhang you have from the center of your rear axle and the bike location. As you go over bumps you will get some pretty violent up and down movements of the bike.
I now have a trailer and can not tell the bike is there, except for monitoring it in the back-up camera.
