    Technology & Features

    Dimensions & Specs

    1. MTX Platform

    Heavy-duty steel main support connects to 2" receivers, hauls up to 500 lbs. (227 kgs.), supports track/chock adjustability, and the attachment of innovative components.

    2. EasyLoad Ramp

    A longer webbed steel ramp reduces angle, maximizes traction, and eliminates bottoming out at the top of the ramp. Ramp hooks directly into tire track and will not disengage during loading.

    3. Angled Steel Track

    Angled track with advanced geometry secures rear tire sizes up to 6" (152 mm) wide and adjusts up to 65" (165 cm) wheelbases.

    4. ZeroWobble+ Hitch Mount

    Upgraded mount eliminates rack movement laterally in transport and requires fewer tools for installation.

    5. StableStop Chock

    Adjustable front tire mount secures tires up to 4.75" (120 mm), adds lateral support, and holds the bike upright while securing tie-downs.

    6. BroadPull+ Arm (Front)

    A patented, S shaped, wide tie-down arm improves strap leverage and lateral support from the front of the motorcycle.

    "I purchased an offshore model first thinking they would all be the same, but it was a bad assumption on my part. The MotoTote carrier is substantially better. "

    RV / Scooter: A Marriage That Works
    A 2022 Tiffin 32 SA and a MTX3 motorcycle hitch carrier were joined together on November 5, 2022, in a joyful celebration of a product, (MTX3), that works and a motor home. This setup has made TWO round trips from New Jersey to Red Bay Alabama for lets say, corrections in manufacture of the motor home. The scooter is a 2022, Suzuki Bergman 200. Scooter loads from the drivers side to clear the ladder and ease of reach of throttle. Securing the scooter is interesting due to the Tupperware. More trips to Red Bay AL are in the future as multiple corrections fell apart, discovered at 221 miles.

    • Assembly difficulties
    I am still in the process of assembling it. My impressions are it is very sturdy, and made of high-quality material. Some sections are not fitting well together, and required some extra banging and bending to work. One location where a bolt goes was not well-threaded, and took a great deal of fussing to get to screw in straight. Customer Service has been helpful and willing as I get it together. Overall, I think it's going to prove to be a sturdy carrier.

    Great carrier
    • Well built
    • Works perfectly.
    • Expensive compared to other models
    Though expensive, I purchased the M3 after comparing many other products. Package arrived intact, very easy assembly, works as advertised. Easy to load my KTM 500 EXC-F, very stable. Means I'll be taking the bike along with many other adventures simply because it is so easy to load and carry.

    I like it
    After reading various carrier reviews with phrases like "parts don't line up," "finish is terrible," "packaging fell apart during shipment," "carrier seems weak," etc. etc. I decided to buy a Moto Tote M3. Reviews looked good. I assembled my M3 and all holes lined up, finish is great and the packaging was fine. Installed the M3 on my Tacoma and loaded my Husqvarna 701 Enduro. Drove my truck with bike on the carrier on the roughest roads I could find. Everything worked perfectly. Carrier is solid. Bike didn't move. I added the light package to my M3 and I recommend it. I also added a safety chain to my carrier. A single bolt mounts the carrier and having a safety chain gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. I also plan to use a padlock on the safety chain to slow down any thieves.

    Best Carrier I've Tried
    • Function
    • Quality
    • Support
    • A bit Heavy
    I've used a simpler aluminum carrier and looked at the Harbor Freight carrier, but wanted something more rigid and easier to load. The MotoTote M3 went together well, and works even better than I expected. The longish ramp made rolling my CR230F easy and the tiedown locations were in a good spot. Really like the well thought-out design and fabrication quality. Glad I went with the MotoTote. About the only thing I could want is a bit less weight, but that would probably come at more cost.

    Very Stiff and Solid
    • Stiff
    • solid
    • not that heavy
    Does not move around like my other hitch rack which makes me happy. The only thing was the 1/2 inch locknuts were not a 1/2 inch for the bolts so i had to go to Ace Hardware to buy some. Small issue really.

    Seriously Sturdy
    • Customer Service
    • Build Quality
    • Small Truck Compatibility
    Very well built. Nice welds. Using as a bomb-proof rack for larger & heavier ebikes.
    Only wish is that there were a few more tray & front wheel stop bolt hole positions to fine tune overall length and centering on vehicle. Using on a 2009 Ford Ranger, trying to keep as close to my 69" wide body as possible.
    Any rigs bigger than mine will be a non-issue.
