If you buy a trailer at Harbor Freight....USE THE 20% COUPONS AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE and go during a sale. Never pay full rate.

I got my 4 x 4 for $144.00 + Tax. Normally $229 or something like that.

If you get that stupid envelope full of coupons in your mail, there's usually a HF 20% off coupon in there.

you can even find them in the parking lot sometimes if there is a store close enough to you to just swing by.

I found two before, but they usually turn up when you're not looking for one.

The judaism in here is starting to reach unprecedented levels.

DO upgrade to the larger wheels if you buy one, cheap enough

I had one, set up for two bikes. Made a few trips to the Hill Country, and a few track days.

It is a bit small for two bikes, but perfect for one. If you are just planning on a single bike, get the ramp/rail set from HF at the same time and don't bother with a plywood deck.

This. Spend a little extra time and deck it with 5/4" patio boards. You can even pre-drill for chocks and insert T-nuts though the bottom. That way, you just set your chock on the trailer, drop your bolts through, and go.

5x8 is the minimum for 2 full size bikes.

I've got that trailer and it was a pretty good investment. Definitely get one of the 20% off coupons that are all over the place. No reason to pay full price if you don't have to.

I added the plywood like others rather than doing a moto rails/chock set. The plywood allows you to use it for other things besides your bike if you need to at some point. I also added tie-down loops on the corners. Makes for real easy loading/unloading and the storage in the garage is very convenient.

I haven't had an issue with the 12" wheels but I haven't gone on any really long trips with it. Bigger wheels would be better, but I don't think it's an absolute necessity. Your choice basically.

All in all, it does the job and I'm happy with it.

I think it's primarily the 8" and 10" wheels everyone is recommending get upgraded.

The wheel bearings are the issue. They spin a lot faster, heat up and get worn out with those small tires unless you aren't doing much freeway driving.

Yeah, and the biggest issue I've seen with the bearings is people not properly cleaning the packing "grease" out of them and then re-packing them with actual bearing grease during assembly. I put nearly 5k freeway miles on my first trailer with 8" tires and they never got terribly hot. That's one of those things that you have to recognize before you assemble the trailer and start pulling it though, or you will wind up toasting the bearings really fast.
