    Hello all.... I have just plucked up the courage to buy a motorhome and am hoping to make friends on here. The unit I have bought is fantastic. I would like some advice on kit etc. I am looking for a motorbike carrier and a roof rack/ladders, any advice. I dont believe in paying top dollar for a name brand, just something thats practical and VFM. I would attempt to make my own kit as I can weld so any advice on plans etc would be great.

    Hi I used to carry a Kawasaki GPZ500 on an easylifter on back of my RV and think your Hondas a but to heavy for a rack.

    I know have a trailer and a Kawasaki VN800 on it.

    Oh and of course welcome to Fun

    Hi and welcome to the fun. Regarding the bike rack do pay attention to your payload and remember the rear overhang increases apparent weight due to leaverage. so it not a case of having 400kg spare and getting a 400kg bike.

    Welcome to MH Fun

    Have to agree with other posters, before fitting any racks either roof or bike racks first check available weight, so easy to get it wrong.

    Best of luck in your new venture.
