    "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. "

    Seriously Sturdy

    • 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.

    Great for transporting a scooter!
    I bought this product to transport my 2022 Yamaha Zuma 125 scooter (289lb wet weight) behind my Thor Delano RV. I had tried previous hitch carriers of the ladder type (spaced rods along the platform and ladder). These were difficult to load/unload the scooter due to the tires dropping between the rods on the platform even though the weight of the scooter is not that much. The smooth channel of the loading platform and the ladder of the M3 makes it easy for one person to load/unload the scooter using the front wheel holder which I was able to adjust perfectly for my 12" front scooter wheel. My only concern was using the zero wobble bolt by itself (after reading another review in which the bolt had bent) to prevent the hitch from wobbling. I bought a Liberrway hitch tightener to add a secure fit and ensure the hitch would not move during transport. After travelling over 2500 miles on my recent trip, I can attest that the combination of the zero wobble bolt (also used a lock washer) and the hitch tightener keep the rack solidly in place. The rack is a little pricey but it was worth the cost compared to units at half the price that are difficult to use and are definitely not as well constructed.

    I'm really pleased and impressed with the quality of the MTX3 Hitch Carrier. It's solid and provides a lot of added confidence while transporting my bike from A-B. Carries my KTM 690 without flinching. Easy to assemble, quality hardware, nice paint and finish. 100% would recommend to any rider. Money well spent and the added confidence it provides is priceless.

    Just what I needed.
    • Well built
    • Jeep Jl
    I needed a solid and light carrier for my jeep. The tongue weight on a jlu is only 350 lbs. With this being 60 and the bike being 282 wet, it suited my needs perfectly. The zero wobble pin design is amazing. There is still some wobble, but I took it up some bumpy roads and worried less and less as I drove more. Trust this thing, it's well made, unlike some of the cheaper options. I'd love if they added a clamping tire chock so you could load it up, clamp it down easily, let it go and then worry about tie downs without having to juggle holding the bike up while doing tie down. Another thing that might be nice is if there were mid anchors that could incorporate peg turn buckles or chain to take some pressure off the forks.

    Great product, even better customer service
    I originally tried the Chinesium brand from harbor freight and thought it should be okay for the money for my 300 lb dual sport. It was not and I returned it the next day. Stepped up to a mototote. Even with back orders they pushed my order through and made it in time for my trip with days to spare. Hands down a great company to deal with. And a product clearly thought out and worth the price. You can’t go wrong.

    Performed well on a cross-country RV trip
    • stability
    • quality
    • U.S. made
    • esthetics
    • price
    • rusting of hardware
    Having a class C RV, we needed a solution for local transportation after setting camp, and a scooter was our solution. However, a reliable hitch mount rack was a necessity. The Mototote was the most esthetically pleasing, and without adjustable pins to fit around the tires like the cheaper hitch mount rack models, it was very easy to load (I'm 65 years old). The tie down arms were far enough from the body of the scooter to seem very stable, and using the "Canyon Dancer" handlebar harness, we were able to securely transport the scooter on a cross-country trip without any issues of tilting or jostling. The only downside is that the mounting bolts rusted very quickly, though substituting stainless steel bolts would easily solve this small problem.
