    Default looking to buy a hitch for 99 dont know what to get?

    hey guys i don't know much about railers etc. but my 99 suburban doesn't have a hitch. i want to start trailering my motorcycle on this platform that hangs on the hitch. i don't know if anyone has seen them but it probably weighs over 100lbs plus my bike weighs another 600-700lbs. i looked at a class 3 and i don't know what tongue weight is and all that stuff can someone explain please?

    Donít know much about the hitch you are speaking of but it should not be over the tongue weight limit for a class 3 or 4 hitch. Just look at the hitch you have in mind. The tongue weight limit should be stamped right on it.

    My only concern would be,

    How the hell are you going to pick the bike up to get it on the hitch?
