I have seen a sportbike fit in a Honda Element by airing out the tires and taking the windscreen off. Though I think the vertical interior height is probably greater than most minivans.

Minivan may be large enough to fit one of those hitch carriers though.

sienna may be ok with a hitch carrier for a dirtbike but I doubt that the tongue weight rating would support the carrier and a sports bike.

Measure and see.

I imagine the real trick will be getting it up in there without being able to stand normally next to it to roll it in..

Is that a Nissan NV series?

The Sprinter is great because you can stand up inside. You can fit three bikes in one if you face the middle one backwards.

Trailers are not very popular here. Might be because they get charged extra on the toll roads. I have seen a ton of vans at every single track day. The NV series vans are really popular, are spacious and some people convert into “campers” as well.

It fits.

Had a customer drop off a bike with his Sienna. He needed tires. I saw the van pull up and thought he had just the wheels in the back. Went inside to grab my gloves and put on my apron. I came back in time to see them finish wheeling it out the sliding side door
