Overall Customer Rating of 76 Reviews:

Excellent engineering and amazing customer service

So I don't typically write customer reviews (yeah, I know I'm that guy). But in this case I wanted to give credit where credit is due. I did a bunch of research on the best hitch carrier for my Ram 2500 and a small dual sport to go with it (went with the Yamaha XT250 which I can also recommend). After researching I decided to go with the MotoTote M3 as that seemed the best fit for my application. Unfortunately after installing both the M3 and the LED light kit one of the lights didn't work (it worked when installed but didn't work after I applied the zip ties). I contacted MotoTote and the customer service experience was simply 2nd to none. Jennifer from MotoTote responded immediately with an RMA form to ship the light set to their engineering department for inspection and shipped me out a replacement set same day.
Upon receveiving and installing the replacement set I had to drive 1.5 hours on the freeway to pick up the XT250 from the dealer as all the local shops were sold out. Putting a brand new bike on a brand new carrier and hauling it 1.5 hours at 70 miles an hour was a bit nerve wracking to say the least. But the MotoTote's design and build quality were awesome. The bike never wobbled or moved the entire trip home.
I can highly recommend both the product and the company!

Regarding the m3 motorcycle hitch carrier, Tyrefix tie-down and the Mototote™ LED light kit:

One must keep in mind that I am not an expert in motorcycle hitch racks, but I have found this one to be absolutely ideal for my needs.
Easy to install, not too heavy (for me) and definitely sturdy enough for the weight of my Juice™ Scorpion e-bike (about 140 lbs.). The quality of construction is most appreciated and relieves any worries about bending or breaking while driving on and/or off road.

The LED tail lights, though not necessary in my case, are installed and add a degree of safety.

The Tyrefix™ strap works wonders and really helps secure my bike to the rack. Well worth the money spent.

Another great feature for this hitch carrier is the ramp. I’s length make it easy for me to get the bike up and onto the rack.

Though only 81 years old, I feel that this hitch carrier will serve me well and allow me to safely take my e-bike wherever I want to go.

Another main reason for dealing with the Mototote™ company is the competent and friendly support staff. So very important and they do a wonderful job.


Great product !

Very great product, probably the best motorcycle hitch carrier ! And very great contact with Marvin

Rusted already on arrival.

The carrier itself is convenient to use, but the main bar (that connects to the tow hitch) is already rusted to heck inside. It was rusted when I took it out of the package prior to assembly, and that is unacceptable from a product of this price. When I pay $400+ for a brand new hunk of metal, I expect it to arrive in brand new condition--not like someone left it in the rain for a month before shipping.

Best quality carrier made

  • Quality

Immediately after unboxing the carrier I was smiling and impressed with the quality. Not many manufacturers take the time to correctly package items like this, but MotoTote did an awesome job all around.
