Mopeds

Does anyone have experience with RV and a moped on a carrier in the trailer hitch. I am not comfortable towing but would like some option for short travel in an Axis 24.1. Would probably want under a 50CC and would be open to gas or electric. Thanks for an info.

I have seen folks use something like the Rage Sport to carry small motorcycles off the hitch of their motorhomes.

Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier with Long Ramp and Aluminum Track for 2" Hitches - 600 lbs Rage Powersports Hitch Cargo Carrier SMC600

Two things you need to consider

First is the weight. The weight of the moped and carrier should not exceed the maximum tongue weight of the motorhome's hitch.

Second, if you plan on driving the moped on streets the laws within the communities you are travelling to. For example, some states do not require a license for 50CC or under whereas in Virginia, since July 1, 2014, any moped being operated on public roadways must be titled and registered and if it is operated over 35MPH a motorcycle drivers license is required as well as all safety inspections, taxes etc...

License for moped.

dstankov is correct. In Wyoming, any 2 wheel motorized vehicle with a seat requires a license, tags and insurance. The only exception is a "TRUE" MOPED, which have pedals, go less than 30mph, are less than 50cc and less than 2hp. We sold motor scooters for 6 years, until we switched to Electric Powered Bicycles. We not only sell them but use them all the time with our camper. They are easy to load/unload, maintain, ride and no license needed. Almost all E-Bikes will go 20mph @ a range of 25-45 miles per charge. Admittedly, if you need to go longer distances at higher speeds, scooters are better. For those times, a rental vehicle works great. If you go the E-Bike route, stay away from the cheaper Chinese built bikes. If it isn't at least $1500 and up, walk away. Our best bikes are Spanish, Swiss & German Built with a California & Florida company comparable in many ways. Not trying to make a sales pitch but trying to give some lighter weight, less maintenance options. Good luck, Garry & Tara.
