No, it's about overhang from rear axle. A bigger hitch wont matter. Remember it is a manufacture limit due to liabilities. It can carry more.
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.

3) Third, Iíd check into front receiver hitch to see if you can get one with enough load capacity for the motorcycle. This option is used successfully some times and helps with weight distribution and handling. The negatives include that the motorcycle will get dirtier with bugs, etc., and restricts air flow into radiator a bit. 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.
Weighing everything first is important.
The 23U is 1 foot longer than my Four winds 22E (No slides)
Fully loaded including driver and 1 passenger and all tanks gas, water, propane is 11000 pounds. The 23U shouldn't be too much heavier.
They also make a tow dolly with a motorcycle carrier on it. Attachment 25217
Sorry I got sidetracked I meant to post a picture of the Trailer toad 3500HD, tongue weight is not an issue with this
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.
