Question : Will
the carrier damage my seat ?
Question : Will your carrier clear my spare tire on the rear of my vehicle ?
Answer : Yes.
We have designed the carrier to sit back far enough to clear the spare tires
that we find on many S.U.V.s and other tow vehicles. We also ask on our order
form for the type of tow vehicle, the type of dirt bike, and do you have a rear
mounted spare tire on your vehicle. We also call everyone who orders a carrier
from us, before we process their order, which gives us the opportunity to double
check the information so when you receive your carrier, it will be ready to go.
Question : Can you fold the vertical support down to access the hatch on an SUV?
: No. We decided to make the
Vertical Pressure Arm a non-removable item, so we could get " Rock Steady
" on the vertical support with no play from a removable fitting. The
carrier only weighs 35 pounds. You can pull the pin on the stinger, and remove
the whole carrier in no time flat. Now, you also have total clearance to
the rear of your S.U.V.
Question : Why don't you make your carrier from ordinary steel, like most other dirt bike carriers, rather than Aircraft quality aluminum, so I can buy it cheaper ?
Answer : We asked ourselves the same question during our research, design, and testing of our carrier. First, our background is in marine engineering of T-tops and Flying Bridges for sports fishing boats, and we know using cheaper inferior materials cost the buyer more, as the products will not last.. Second, we wanted to make " The Best Motorcycle Carrier Ever " .
The ads you see for Discount Carriers basically mean made from steel. They weigh from 75 pounds to over 100 pounds. That adds from 40 to 60 pounds more on the back of your tow vehicle, which you don't want. Their prices have to include freight of these heavy carriers which goes to the shipping company, not into the quality of the product as it does with our carrier.
By the time you add the freight and strap package to the discount carriers, you will pay as much or a little more than our carrier, and you will get and an inferior and a cheaper carrier.
Question : Where are you located and how soon will I receive the carrier ?
We are located in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl., and invite you to stop by if you are in the area. It will take from 1 to 5 days via UPS. Florida / 1 day // West Coast 5 days. Remember, when we get your order, we always call you before we ship. We ship the same day that we confirm your order, directly from the factory here in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl..
Question : Will your carrier fit my RV hitch receiver ?
Answer : Yes. Our stinger fits 2" hitch receivers. If you have a larger size, we can recommend the proper adapter which costs about $18.00 or less. These are standard adapters and are available from most large hitch manufacturers.
Question : Can I still tow a trailer or another vehicle while using your carrier ?
Answer : That
depends. In theory by using an extended pass thru stinger with the carrier, with
a hitch receiver on the end, you can. Most people can picture a pick up truck
bed camper that is longer than the bed of the truck, and have seen them towing
trailers or vehicles. This is accomplished by using an extension of 2 or 3
Now, you must add the tongue
weight of whatever it is that you plan to tow. So if you have a small bike, a
small trailer, or a vehicle being towed in a manner that adds no tongue weight,
you could stay within the recommended tongue weight specified by the
manufacturer of your hitch.
Remember, the idea is to have fun and be safe. You can tow, and bring your bike too, if you have the right equipment. If you are not sure, please contact us, and we will help you to determine if you have the right setup. We sell all the carriers that we can make, and we would rather pass on the sale of one of our carriers, being used in a questionable towing configuration, as we might be driving behind you. Remember, we all share the roads !
