Motorhome lift that will carry Nomad 1700
We are now living and traveling full time in a Winnebago Journey 42E motorhome, flat towing our car. I have been looking at motorcycle lifts to carry our 2009 Nomad 1700 on the back of the motorhome. The issue that I am running into is that the Nomad is so wide and so low that there is a hard interference between the bike exhaust on the right side and the lift on all the lifts that I have looked at. I tried loading it onto a Hydra Lift this weekend, which is the largest one on the market, and it was a no go. At the minimum the tray that the bike runs into would need to be moved back and possibly back and up in order to clear the lift arms.
I would like to know if anyone out there has successfully used either a stock or a modified lift of any type to carry a Nomad 1700. PLEASE do not send me a list of lifts that you think might work. I am looking for someone who knows for certain based on owning and using a motorhome/lift combination. Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.
