5th Wheel Motorcycle Carrier Lift
Hydralift's Specialty Built Motorcycle Lift for a 5th Wheel
Hydralift has worked together with 5th wheel chassis manufacturers to develop a specially designed motorcycle lift exclusive for the 5th wheel chassis. Hydralift uses a one piece welded body that is strong but lightweight utilizing a tube frame design that is powered by 12v operating our new generation hydraulics. Hydralift's design along with its hydraulic system not only provides you with the most powerful power-lift but Hydralift is also the lightest power-lift on the market!
Hydralift's 5th wheel lift is designed to fit chassis between 32"- 88' wide. With most 5th wheel lift installs a frame reinforcement is necessary along with the proper recommended pin box (Demco's Glide Ride or MOR/Ryde's pin box or equivalent). The Hydralift 5th wheel motorcycle lift can be mounted on some, not all 5th wheel trailers. Every 5th wheel application is a custom fit application. The Hydralift's lifting capacity is restricted to the 5th wheel's GVWR as to the available chassis carrying capacity. For further information contact your Hydralift installing dealer.
If you are in the market for a new 5th wheel, request a Hydralift 5th wheel motorcycle lift from your RV dealer as an option on your new 5th wheel purchase.
Hydralift recommends the following 5th wheel manufacturers for a preinstalled Hydralift 5th wheel lift on your next new 5th wheel:

Sample of added third axle
Some 5th wheels may have an excessive rear overhang that would prevent the addition of a rear motorcycle lift. On the install to the left this installer added a third axle reducing the rear overhang to less then 10'.
A third axle was added behind the OEM equipped dual axle fig A & B below.

There's nothing like a Hydralift!
Recommend Pin Boxes
Hydralift recommends a mechanical pin box when installing a Hydralift on a 5th wheel. These pin boxes are proven to greatly reduce 5th wheel chucking as well as smooth out the harsh start and stop action. These type of pin boxes help to provide a more stable ride for your motorcycle and the Hydralift. Ask your local RV parts store for further information.
I've checked out other motorcycle lifts on the market and "The Hydralift is the best built motorcycle lift on the market by far." "The ground clearance is great and the towing capacity is most impressive." "It operates smoothly and flawlessly."

To all of you at Hydralift, The lift has been installed for about ten months now. And it works great. I have carried a Honda Goldwing (1500cc) about four thousand miles without a problem. Loaded it and unloaded it about ten times. One trip I even took my Honda Helix along. Without the Goldwing. Thanks,
