Motorcycle Trailer Advice

Now that I have a new truck capable of pulling a decent load, I'm in the market for a 2 bike motorcycle trailer. Anyone have one? Advice, experience, likes and dislikes?

I found a couple with a quick google search, haven't looked locally yet.

This one's pretty basic...

http://motorcycletrailer.com/1/

I like this one because it folds up for storage...

http://www.discount-trailers.com/ken...l-trailers.htm

Would like to find a decent one that doesn't cost $2200 though.

I'm probably no help. but, I've been looking at pick-ups and trailers for a while. But, I just can't justify the purchase because I wouldn't use the utility enough for the cash outlay. My solution is U-Haul. I have one about 15 miles from my house and for $19.95/day ... I get a nice open flat trailer that easily fits two bikes.

You have the ability to park a trailer at work, so size and folding shouldn't be an issue. My opinion would be to get an enclosed trailer. Second choice would be a nice flat Al trailer. Though the bike specific trailers are nice, they limit utility and space. If you don't mind used, there's always a bunch around. I was eyeing a very nice used "landscape" trailer with the drive up drop gate and low height. Couldn't you always use a nice large low trailer for the business?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

I have an enclosed trailer myself. I only have one bike in it, of course, but it'll fit two easily. It's a 6x10 single axle Pace American. It doesn't have a ramp, but they have them with ramps. I use a folding ramp I got at Northern Tool for $40. I paid about 2,000 for the trailer.

Yeah, I think you guys are right, the more I think about it an enclosed trailer makes more sense. I do have plenty of space in my shop and on my lot to park it so no big deal, won't take up nearly as much space as my business partner's horse trailer.

Found this one on CL in Louisville, seems about the right size, not too big but could still haul two bikes....

My only concern is if it's big enough. Think it would haul the 919 and 599 ok, the FJR would probably fill it up by itself. I want something to haul our bikes to Iowa and Florida, also haul the vintage bikes over to Mid-Ohio for meets someday.

I don't want to go much bigger than that though, hauling a massive trailer behind the truck on a long trip isn't my idea of fun.

Too small ...

5x8 is too small for 2 bikes unless you really cram them in there. Before the thieves took mine I had a nice 6x10 with a ramp, side door and 6' 6" interior height. Make sure you get the added interior height, otherwise you will have to walk in and out all hunched over. The folding ramp door is the way to go as well, it makes loading anything a breeze.

I wish I still had mine. I had it set up nicely for 2 bikes and all my race gear for the track. I will own a new one some day.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Yeah, think you're right, 6x10 sounds perfect.

hey hondaf4i guy has a friend selling a track only 600 with a complete enclosed trailer... look at that... you could probably buy it and then sell the bike and stuff and get the trailer for free...


i'm just saying...

It was for me. I fit all my track stuff in there. Bike, tires, spare wheels, easy-up, leathers, etc. I painted the floor with that garage floor epoxy and put it on the ramp too, but I added sand to that.

With even my tiny little Jeep Liberty pulling the fully loaded 6x10 was easy.

Scott-We have this 3 rail trailer.



The positives are that it is heavy duty and easy to load. Saying that, though, our next trailer will be an enclosed one.

I have a 5X10 utility trailer with a drive on gate that fits two bikes with ease. There has been 3 bikes on with one being a dirtbike but was cramped. It has a 2000 lb load capacity but most of the time there are ZXR,s on it. it has also made two trips to Florida and one to Minnisota when loaned out to the Harley guys to pick up bikes when they bought them out of state.
Keep grease in the wheel bearings and it has been a fine little trailer.

Kristen, Who builds those trailers, I can't make out what it says on the front.
Also, Sbeau1960, The Home Depot carries Pace trailers, all sizes and both open and enclosed. But that one Kristen has is just what I'm looking for.`

FWIW I have a flat bed 5x10 that hauls two bikes with no problem...also comes in handy around the house for landskaping and just hauling stuff in general...I've got $600 in it so far, bought it used.

But, If your planning on doing long hauls that could encounter rain / storms and such, enclosed would probably be the way to go if you don't mind spending the extra money.

Scott, check out I-69 Trailer sales. They make all there own trailers on site, so you can usually get a pretty good deal without getting hosed by the middle man. I've bought three trailers from them, and sold every one of them for more or the same price I paid for them even after a couple years use.

5x8 is more than enough for bikes alone. If you want to haul store gear, and tools go with 6x10. The drop down gate is a must for convenience. I currently roll a trailer like Kristen's. It is nice and light which makes for a pleasant ride in the truck, but the lack of storage = smelly moto gear in the back of the Lade. I plan to extend the tounge some to accomodate a truck bed box for storage. One other nice thing about the open trailer is efficiency. Alot less drag than a 6x6 wall.

Appreciate the advice everyone! Kristen, your trailer looks nice but I think a closed trailer would probably be more useful in the long run. Will keep my eyes open locally and check out the area dealers.

I have a 5x8 and its fine with 2 bikes and track gear.

6 x 10 would give me more room but it'll also take up more space in the driveway and more frontage to pull on the highway. If you get a good deal for a 5 x 8 with ramp versus 6 x 10 without, I would pick the former.

Found this one on CL today...

http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/rvs/1090839837.html

Sounds decent, I've emailed back and forth with the guy, said he hauled three bikes down to Daytona with it. Think it's an older trailer that he's rebuilt.

I'm in no hurry, going to keep my eyes open, who knows I might run across one at a car auction.

These folks have all kind of trailers for bikes. I paid about $750 for mine and put it together at home. Sorry for no pics,but, just stored them all on a disc to save some room. I do have pics in an earlier trailer discussion. Haaa, It did work, man I'm learning some stuff for an ole fart!

Thanks for the link. I might buy an open trailer if I found a used one cheap in good condition just to have something until I find the perfect enclosed trailer.

I didn't go look at it, emailed back and forth with the guy and decided that it was an older trailer with a do it yourself rebuild. If I'm going to spend two grand I'd rather have something newer that I can modify myself. That new on on FW CL looks great, something like that a couple of years old that I can buy for $1800, sign me up!

This open trailer looks cheap and decent, not far away. Could grab it on my way home from Iowa next weekend...

http://bn.craigslist.org/mcy/1076516169.html

Couple of good deals on smaller enclosed ones though, it might be that 5x8 is all I really need...

5x8 down the highway in Louisville...

http://louisville.craigslist.org/mcy/1088911002.html

And another nice 5x8 near Mid-Ohio, almost new and I really like the side door and rear ramp door...

I bet with this economy, you could make a fairly deep offer and they would consider it! Michigan (Coldwater) area is really feeling the hurt. Just a suggestion.

the louisville trailer looks pretty nice!

but the mansfield trailer has a side door, that is worth a small fortune in my book!

Yeah, that Mansfield trailer has caught my eye, sent the guy an email. Would like to see pics of the rear door ramp and the inside. Cash talks, maybe $1200? Seems that a small enclosed trailer would be a lot more useful for other stuff while a dedicated open motorcycle trailer is just that.

I thought that one in Columbus was the same trailer, but now I see it has a swing door and no side door.

I bought a Kendon (expensive! 2500), has torsion bar susp and pulls 1 or 2 very well. has diamond plate AL floor which rattled like crazy, padded it and all is well. Best feature will stand up and can be pushed to a corner, if space is an issue, get one that stands up. Harbor Frieght has one is cheaply made and priced, I sold it to get the Kendon.

Yeah, I always have too. This truck is pretty high off the ground though and it's exciting enough to load and unload bikes from a regular height pickup. Time to get the perfect setup, have the truck to pull it in style, need a nice trailer to haul the toys.

Mmmm, I see a custom rv toy hauler in your future! Big enough for the truck and bikes to fit in all at once!

Umm, yeah...or maybe just a nice enclosed trailer with a WT logo on the sides!

I guess the trailer with the logo will do if you are going to take the cheap way out! LOL
