Default wanted- hydraulic motorcycle lift

We're looking for a Hydralift, or something similar to use on the back of our coach. It's a hydraulic lift that mounts across the rear of the coach and lifts a full sized motorcycle way up. Enough so you can still safely tow behind/under it. Anybody have one they'd like to sell, or know of one for sale?
Thanks!

i built one for a birder a few years ago out of a truck lift gate.
we cut it down some and it works real well.
i don't have any pics,and the owner is in alaska for a few months.
it folds up against the back of the bus when not hauling a bike.
we bought the lift gate used,for $500.
when the bike is picked up on the lift,the bottom of the lift is about 4' off the ground.
making it hard for someone to mess with the bike.

Wanna build a few more? I've been looking for a Hydralift on eBay for the last year or so and haven't found one yet unless, as the gent said, it was attached to another motorhome.

Along the lines of the "perfect toad" and the ultimate motorcycle lift, I thought that you folks might find the following photo of be of interest. It was taken by a guy on one of my motorcycle forums. I'd say he's a little overloaded, what say you? :

Minimum weight of a Smart is about 1,800 lbs. according to their brochure.

Yup ... doesn't look safe to me

How about the 2 straps, one at the front of the car and one at the rear that go up to the roof to add "support"!!!!! Like that Dynomax has any roof structure to get support from!!! I can hear it now, "Well, my Smart fell off the back of my motorhome, landed on the driver's side, and this KW just ran right over it!" Think the insurance company will pay on that one???

My buddy made me one out of a wheel chair lift, he cut off the chair part and added a piece of 6" channel to put the bike on, works great.
