I carry a ultra limited in my 29h.
I have a wheel choke mounted against the inner door sill and the antennas tickle the ramp when closed.

Thanks for the response. Can you send me a picture where you have your front wheel choke?

Hi Jammer, I carry a Honda Goldwing Trike in my 29H. The bike is 10 feet long and I have to put the front wheel through the door to the living area to fit. I made a little ramp that sits on the door jamb and stops the front wheel at the correct place. Works like a charm to fit a 10 foot long bike into a 9 foot garage. I also made some ramp extenders to reduce the ramp angle so the bike would not drag at the top of the ramp. I have been using this setup for about 3 years and have put about 13K miles on the rig with no problems so far.

Thanks oldtymer. That sounds like a great idea. Love to see your pictures of your ramp extender and your front door jam so I can get some ideas

I co8uld be wrong...

But I think that the "J"'s garage is shorter than the "H"'s. Check the specs carefully.
Good luck!

We have a Class C Fun Mover. We carry 2 motorcycles side by side. We have a HD, Ducati, and 2 Hondas. My husband does not use the permanent chks. We have a 3 rail tie down system in the floor. Works great, never had a problem. We can walk down the center of the garage no problem.

Jammer, I placed a picture of my rig with the Goldwing loaded in the Photo section. The photo shows my home made ramp extensions. I do not have a picture of the front wheel ramp for the inside door but will try and get you one.

You want to do your homework as Bob said above....

Not only is the Outlaw 29J garage one foot shorter than the 29H at 8' they dropped the weight capacity in the garage from 1500lbs to 1000lbs.


I purchased a 29H to carry my Spyder a couple years ago. The 2018 29H was the last year that the Spyder would just fit.

I also learned that the 1500lb weight rating in the garage was bogus.... and I think that is why the shortened the garage and lowered the weight rating after the 2018 model.

While the garage could physically hold 1500lbs, it puts the GVWR well over its legal rating. The GVWR rating is a bit of a joke to begin with as it is. With a full load a fuel, propane and water and some gear you are just about at the max GVWR.

My Spyder weighed 1000lbs and once I loaded it in the garage I was 1000lbs overweight.

I installed Sumo Springs and Hellwig Sway Bars and it greatly improved the handling and ride quality both empty and full. However the stock tires were at the max and I was concerned of a blowout given they were overloaded with the Spyder and about at their max with just the weight of the coach.

I was about to install Goodyear Commerical Rated 16" tires that would have given me over an additional 2000lbs of carrying capacity but we traded in the 29H for a Super C.
