For less than $300 I may have to jump on this one. Especially if it's foldable, I don't much room for storage.
for $10 more you can get the 12" wheels:

folds up thusly:

trailer4

trailer5

don't forget to factor in the cost of plywood, hardware to attach the plywood and some sort of ramp and wheel chock to secure the bike. spare tire and bracket were extra, too.

My friend has that one, he raves about it. Id rather have a 4x8, or 5x8 and have a real trailer with rails and a gate.

I like that trailer, and it doesn't take up too much space. Thanks for sharing.

I have a truck, but can't load my bike on it. I have a 6" lift, w/ 35" tires, so even with a ramp, it's tough. If I'm by myself, it will be impossible. I don't have any ditches around my neighborhood either.

Does anyone have a lifted truck? How do you load your bike?

storage was the issue for me - this 4x8 folding trailer takes up a 2x5 space in the garage and is low enough to load easily.

a 5x8 utility trailer with a tailgate ramp would have been a great option if I'd had the space to keep it. those are a bit heavier than the HF (250#) or kendon (400#) options, though.

the kendon is even better than the HF trailer, but it is so much expensive more that I feel you really need to be using the trailer a lot to offset the additional cost (and I didn't pay the $2500 sticker for a new kendon, either).

between trackdays (10-12 so far this year, 5 more on the schedule for me) and hill country trips (2 so far this year) and hauling various bikes to Motorcycles Unlimited or P1/SCRC or up to my buddy's shop in college station, I use the kendon a ton, so it makes sense to me.

back when I only needed a trailer 3-4 times a year, I couldn't justify more than the HF.
