If its this one, I have it. Mine if from HF but the exact same.

It works great. I have pulled 2 bikes from Austin to South Padre and back and my bike back and forth to the track a ton of times. Cheap and it folds up and out of the way.

Just get the spare tire.

I had the tiny 4X4 one, worked great for 1 or 2 dirtbikes. Make sure to get the 12" wheels though.

Plywood and a wheel chock.

You could easily use rails or steel mesh. I did wood cause it was easiest. Mesh would be better.

I have enough room for a 2003 R6 lengthwise and I can fit a 2004 zuma scooter right beside it without any rubbing. You can see the aluminum ramp I use to load and unload the bike(s). I've been using this set-up since 2006, works great.

I have the 4x8 trailer that I picked up off another member from here... its very stable... It folds and stands up in the garage so it takes up almost no space when not in use... you have to have 2 people to stand it up though (just a warning)... if its just for 1 bike after seeing 3xv's pic i'd probably get the 4x6 he has if you weren't planning on standing it up...

the 4x8 is long enough though to have a full wheel chock on it though if thats something you are interested in...

great feed back guys! thanks for the info. IF I knew that the 4x6 would work, I would have bought it. I got a great deal on one that I bought. It came with all kinds of extra for 400 Bucks

They are pretty good little trailer for what they are. One of the biggest thigs for me is that they fold up.

Like I said, I towed 2 CBRs to South Padre island and back to Austin on one of those.

I was gonna get a more heavy duty trailer but all I was going to use it for was to transport my bike to the track so it would be pointless especially with the limited room I have to store it.

Wheels and tires are cheap. You can pick them up at any Harbor Freight or Northern Tools.
