Mighty Hauler RV Motorcycle Lift

Does anyone have any experience with the Mighty Hauler 1000M motorcycle lift with a LT? I am looking at motorcycle lifts for an RV and this one is the least expensive and easiest to install, but it may be too "light duty" for a LT. It is rated 1000 pounds but only has a single receiver connection (others I see on line have 2 or 3).
Comments are appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Mighty Hauler RV Motorcycle Lift

While I only gIanced at their site I would NEVER carry an LT on a 2" hitch receiver - to my knowledge they are rated for 500 lbs. max tongue weight. Hit a pronounced dip in a road at speed and you can probably put a momentary load of 10 times that on that area. Bye bye LT.

Re: Mighty Hauler RV Motorcycle Lift

The whole idea of hanging a 1000 pound contraption on an already extended Motorhome frame just does not seem mechanically sound. If you search there are some older threads on the topic here. I own a 36foot diesel pusher and pull the LT on a trailer. Can't even tell its there. Backing up is a different story...

If you search some of the RV bulletin boards you will find lots of info on the topic.
