UNLESS you're willing to accept that liability along with the OP giving advice that "it can carry more" shouldn't be advised.
Maybe it "can carry more", maybe it can't do it safely, that's the manufacturers limit & they limited to that for a reason.

Since your motorhome is at low end of size and weight, cooling shouldnít be a major problem. If you do a Google search, you should find many pictures similar to the one below.

Thanks for this. I'm looking at sport bikes and was wondering how I might hoist it into the back of my towed (truck). This is a keeper.

They also make a tow dolly with a motorcycle carrier on it.

You have a carrier? Can you take a wider shot to include whatever is to the right?

I have an idea but you may have to be careful making a turn.

The picture is from their website, just showing other options. I think its an enclosed trailer.

Ok. I thought I saw an opportunity to fabricate a ramp atop that carrier but you would have to be careful making a turn. It may impede the turning radius and you don't want to pinch the bike and/or dent your motorhome.
