    I am looking to buy my first motorhome and would like to carry a motorbike in the garage . I have noted the Autocruise Starblazer XL has a payload of 700kg . Would I be able to carry a 278 kg bike in the garage . Can anyone suggest other suitable models .

    You usually find the "Garage" in a motorhome has a weight limit of 150kg or LESS!
    The payload is presumed to be distributed around the van, not in one place.

    we bought a cobra ( a bit like a monkey bike but bike styled 12" wheels etc) it weighs just under 100kg and fits in the garage easily, our garage has a 150kg limit as previously posted, it has carried 2 of us all over this year, 125cc engine is adequate... very pleased with it so far

    I've been looking at one of these but is it big enough for two largish people?

    well heres a couple of two fat ba--ards on mine .i,m about 17st .bob my mate is nearly 20st . we used to regularly just use mine . he now as a lifan 110cc dax . mine is a easyrider 90cc.
    they arent serious bikes but good for 10mls each way . but great for off roading down tracks across the beach ,over rocks etc . mine is a 2001. still going strong .
