Motorcycle trailer

Can anyone provide any recommendations on an open motorcycle trailer? Just curious as to what people use to get their bikes to/from the track if trailering.

I got a $60 wench from Harbor Freight. It has a remote control and I mounted it at the base of my truck. Add some ramps and hook it to the forks.

It didn't work great as the cable can bind against the tire at the correct angle, and keeping the bike from falling over can be a challenge.

I saw a MUCH better solution, it's a sled where you mount the bike and the wench is attached to the sled.

It's kinda a mix of these two. The 1st one looks good, but the better setup would be to have the ramp stay put, you see the angle it makes going in, if the ramp didn't roll in, the bike would roll on top of it and it wouldn't hit those angles. Also, having a longer sled allows for more attachment points.

I do like the lock system on the tire thou.



I know you said trailer, but this is so much simpler, no DMV, you can leave it overnight (harder to steal), cheaper.

I bought what I call a "yard trailer" and added some steel diamond plate that I covered in rhino-liner (both sides) and bolted to the frame, some wheel chocks from Northern Tool, and some eye bolts and d-rings from the local Ace Hardware.

This has worked well for the past 7 years or so.

I started off with an old 3x8 snowmobile trailer. It's quite narrow (enough so that I'm pretty sure current sleds wont fit width wise), but it's perfect for a single bike. A HF wheel chock and a 2x12 plank to use as a ramp and I was all set.

If you can afford enclosed, I recommend you do so. First class is never a mistake. Doubles as a mini storage unit when not on the road.

I use a Kendon Industries two bike trailer.
Extremely stable for towing, and always flat because of the torsion bar springing.
The only complaint I have is that I think their assumed two bike centre of mass is Harley based with reward bias, so with typical sport bike wheel base and weight distribution, there is more tongue weight than the textbook call for 10% of towed weight.
It's only noticeable with two bikes on when towed by a lightly rear sprung front wheel drive car, such as our 2003 Nissan Maxima "tow car".

If you're even slightly handy the harbor freight trailers are great... I got the folding kind because I have nowhere to store a trailer. Make sure you clean out and pack the bearings well before you first use it, and the wiring harness is shit... but other than that I have 10,000+ miles with 2 bikes on mine in the last 2 years with out a problem.. After buying a piece of nice wood for the deck and fasteners etc plus a wheel chock I think I was into it for like $450 total and I went with the heavier weight rating one.

I use a tandem trailer to cart my bikes, and quads around. A pair of alloy ramps clip together or separate fit into tailgate gap. Plenty of tie down rails. Checker plate floor.

That's strange, the HarborFreight site does't show ANY trailers. I went there in the off chance they had a car dolly, but they had zero trailers listed.

I know they sell them, just can't find them online.

I was about to call bullshit on you but I just went and looked and can't find them either... I know I checked them out many times online before I bought mine... I wonder if they're changing them up? Or if some weird regulation makes them not be able to list them anymore? Something weird for sure.

Apparently there's a recall on them because the lights weren't up to DOT spec for the last 15 years... so maybe they're not selling them until they fix that.

Side note: after some further research it seems there may have been an issue with non-compliant (or safe) tires as well that prompted them pulling sale of all trailers until further notice... so that's exciting...

I've heard that the HF trailers are great.... after you assemble it, slap on a (treated) deck, replace the wheel bearings/add bearing buddies, replace the lights, buy a spare tire, etc. Realistically, it feels like you buy a DIY kit with the HF trailers.... If I hadn't gotten such a great deal on my snowmobile trailer, I probably would have gone that route.

I was scared they would stop selling them. I know they don't sell some things in California and I wasn't sure if this would somehow outlawed.

I gotta say I love some of the prices of HF, the fact that you can go get a trailer new for that kinda money, that's pretty awesome.

I went used a few years ago and have not regretted it. Found this Cargo Pro on advRider. Big enough for two bikes, two Condor Chocks, all fasteners, and straps. The rear tailgate was cut in half and hinged to cut down on drag. Utility box was included with the trailer hitch. All aluminum construction for $1,500.

You can go on the cheap, but when a real deal comes up, you have to seize the day.

Good luck!

Get yourself a clapped out caravan. Doesn't matter if the top is rotten, that all goes. You are left with a steel frame flatbed trailer. Screw down a timber floor and away you go.
A mate made one like that. A storm blew a caravan over. It tore the top clean off. My friend got it for nothing. Removed caravan floor. Welded some pipe rails on the sides and front. Pair of wheel covers. Covered the floor frame with an exterior ply. Lights Job done.

That article was a good read. He mentioned that he has seen many pictures taken of his rig from car windows on the road, but never seen them posted on the net. Here you go.

I don't know how cheap a commercial van is, but I wouldn't be surprised if the bike wouldn't fit in just a standard van. Fully enclosed and good weather proof storage.

Thanks guys.

Budget and space constraints preclude all but el cheapo open trailers for me. Looks like I'll have to hold out for the HF option to come back to legality (geezus...), or see if the CL gods are friendly enough to deliver something during the off season.

So the snow mobile/yard trailers aren't too light right? Like are they affected too badly by crosswinds and hitting bigger bumps on the highway? I've never towed a thing before, but the voices in my head told me to get the V8 with our Grand Cherokee a few years ago so I'm like "time to put it to use".

Edit: https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/t...390789787.html
I don't think it gets much lighter than this. How do you all think this would manage?

Wow, that looks cool. You might even be able to carry it in a trunk. It looks like it'll handle the weight. The downside is that it's pretty much motorcycle only, won't be hauling many other things.

What are you looking at doing that makes you 2nd guess this purchase?

One quick note: I was towing a cement mixer with my dually and noticed it bouncing all over the place. The make a stabilizer bar thing that'll keep that from happening.

IMO, the price is about 2X what you'd expect and that's clearly for the foldable part. If you want/need a folding then you've found the match.

Nothing at all, just my lack of experience I guess. I did some research in the past when we had considered picking up a travel trailer, and read some articles back then advising that shorter wheelbase trailers might be more prone to swaying and/or crosswinds than the larger ones. I know its not exactly the same, but this folding trailer, even with a 919 on it, wouldn't that be even MORE prone to swaying especially with its lightweight, short wheelbase and narrow track?

I don't know what causes sway. I was towing a cement mixer with a F350 ext cab, long bed, dually, and it was all over the place. I think it's kinda like a death wobble where it's just the right combo.

The stabilizer should stop it.

The side wind issue is really about how strong the wind is and how much the whole thing is catching.

I'm guessing the folding one is some brand name, but it wasn't listed. Kinda odd that the seller wouldn't list it. You could ask and/or do research. If there were a problem, it would probably show up on some forum somewhere.

That's one of the big advantages of these forums is that pretty much any product has been reviewed somewhere.

I think it has more to do with weight distribution then length. But I will say that my 3x8 snowmobile trailer is a bitch to back up.... However, since it only weights about 250#, it's easy enough to pick the back end up and move it.

Looks like it needs to be tongue heavy. I wonder what happened to my cement mixer, as that's one trailer you'd expect would be professionally designed to be tongue heavy. These are the kinds of things you expect the pros to know.

Not a motorcycle trailer- but I made this little jeep camper out of the back section of an old cherokee. I thought about making another one to haul bikes in. Would be from a jeep cherokee body, would be fully enclosed, and have the floor cut out flat with recessed slots for bike tires. Could throw all your riding gear in and keep it dry wherever you go. Of course this could be made from any old left over suv or truck- Just a thought....

Was it hard to get that thru the DMV? I have an F450 frame and was thinking about putting some 2 7K axles on it and making a car hauler out of it. I don't have any more use for the F450 and it's rated at 15k.

Did you have to go to the CHP for inspection?

Cost me $60 and about a half hour at the DMV. No CHP inspection required because its under 16' in length. It fall under the PTI plate and cost me $15 every 5 years for registration... So easy!

Nicely done, Nealio. Props for the versatility of a stake trailer too.

Thank you! They were fun to build... Jeep trailer was time consuming, but I enjoyed it very much and use it constantly.

It's too bad they have a 16' limit. I got some spare parts and could use a double. 16' is a bit limited for a single car trailer.
