    yes you can buy a scooter rack, but make sure that along with the 125 it wont overload the back axle weight limit. 100kg on the towbar is more like 150kg on the back axle

    Make sure that the tow bar can handle the extra nose weight, many can't. Most will only handle around 85kg.

    Hi, we have a scooter rack that we are selling, you are more than welcome to come try it out, it was fixed to our RV when we bought it, but not something we would use. It is an remote controlled one for easy loading unloading, I am sure there is an advert in classifieds on here which gives you the measurements etc.,

    if you want further details then just PM us

    regards
    Andrea

    Try http://www.easylifter.co.uk/
    They remove the insert that takes the detachable towball and replace it with an insert they make, which then gives you a four hole fixing for a normal tow ball.

    I do not know what weight they take, but I have seen one of theirs with a motor cycle on it.

    Easy lifters usually plated at 250 kgs I sold one last week
    Good kit I've used them for years but not lightweight by any means

    Thanks for the above, but Dave Cooper is around 200 miles from where I live

    I'd be a bit careful his website states max load on racks 130kg.
    That's not much of a payload most scooters are all of that and tempting fate to run at max weight.
