ANSWER: Depending what model you are looking at, but the VH-55 RO and VH-SPORT motorcycle carriers take a class III or IV 2″ x 2″ square receiver. The VH-MS mobility scooter model will work on Class II 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ square or the Class III 2″ x 2″ square.
ANSWER: Yes, you just do not want to exceed the total carrying capacity of the carrier. If the carrier is rated at 500lbs and your bike is 300 lbs then you will have 200 lbs of tongue weight remaining behind the carrier. However your vehicle’s hitch and suspension may limit your to a lesser amount.

ANSWER: Versahaul does not recommend attaching the versahaul to the back of a trail. The trailer will become back loaded and the the trailer will violently fishtail. The VH-55 RO carrier has a 71.5″ long rail and a 500 lbs carrying capacity. This carrier has a towing feature behind it as well. If you have 300 lbs on top of the carrier then you will have 200 lbs of tongue weight remaining behind the carrier to tow. Hope this helps.

ANSWER: The Pilot suspension is rated between 250 and 300 lbs carrying capacity with the VH-55 RO. You may need a suspension enhancement device like a helper spring or air ride air spring for this vehicle. The weight of the Motorcycle may weigh down the back of the vehicle. Air ride suspension can fix this. If you have the suspension, then you may consider the VH-SPORT RO. The sportbike carrier has a wider and longer loading ramp and a wider and longer rail for street bike tires.
ANSWER: The VW Passat can only carry a very small amount of weight on the suspension. The VersaHaul will not work for your application. Do not attempt this on your car! The Hayabusa also likely has tires wider than the VH-Sport at 7-7/8″ wide, which is our widest carrier. So, this is not a good fit.
