Dual Sport On Front Receiver?

Hey - I'm wondering if anyone has experience carrying a dual sport on the front receiver of their van, specifically a 4wd converted van? I have an 02 quigley with a RIP kit. I haven't been able to dig up a ton of info for any vehicles... let alone a converted van. Thanks!

I have a front hitch and a moto rack. The weight distribution and the blocking of the headlights keeps me from putting the moto on the front. Instead I put the bicycles up there on difficult roads

Thanks carringb and simplesez. I've been eyeing the mountain bikes up front, but the desire is to keep the MTBs on the rear because I have a swing out rack that lets me access the rear doors without taking the bikes off. The moto is too heavy for it. Worst case I can always swap positions and see what works for us, once I have the moto carrier.

I use the ultimate MX hauler in the back. Those pics were my last Van. My current SMB does not have the front hitch. Since I have aluminess up front instead of my old steel road armor Iím not sure the weight would work. The swing out rear system should be able to handle a 250 dirt bike.

Curt makes a hitch for front E Series frame mount. Works w the Aluminess but definitely would need an extender for the receiver.

Have fun with that. I've driven a forklift plenty in my life. No interest in doing it on public roads.
