Now I can bring my Wing everywhere I go when I travel with my American Eagle motorhome. I'm off to Zion, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Las Vegas, and whereever else my wife wants to go! I'm pulling the Jeep behind so the Wife and Kids have transportation.

It's made by HydraliftUSA and is good for 1200lbs. Larry, I did buy it used on Craigslist! I've been wanting to bring the Wing on my trips and now I can. The install took me almost a week as I had to fabricate/weld the mounts to the existing frame and keep it looking like a factory install.

I've seen scooters, mopeds, wheelchairs, crotch rockets and lots of bycicles on the back of motorhomes. Reckon it was only a matter of time before I saw a Wing there. Thanks for keeping the faith Dookoo. Enjoy man!

I found it used on the internet for $2400. I believe they are $4k+ new plus installation. Not cheap. The way I looked at it, I could still tow my boat or vehicle and bring my Wing along. It beat buying a large trailer. I also have an attachment to carry my quad or my two dirt bikes. I can also use it for my sportbike on track days.

Dookoo great looking setup. The guys are all missing the big picture here though & I have to ask.

Do you & your family want to adopt a hard working older guy to travel around with.:D

To " adopt " would be easy: To " adapt " is where the hard working part comes into play.

I would have driven your Wing and followed you wherever you went for just the cost of a room and meals....

With all of those toys to play with, don't forget to scratch the dog's ear every once in awhile.

i know right! Dude is livin' the life!!! Congrats man!

My wife and I are working on it (i'm only 27) But We just got on older 89 Class C RV 26' and a trailer to haul our 95 GL1500...We are looking forward to our 4,000 mile trip in 8 days....I will post some pics, but currently we are leaving from Florida, going to Birmingham to Barber for the AMA Barber Motorsport Museum, then onto South Dakota for the Badlands, and Mount Rushmore, back south into Colorado for a few days for a family reunion in Coloarado Springs. I am going to have to take the Wing across the Royal Gorge bridge! Then we will start slowly working our way back home! It should be a pretty awesome 18 days!
