Help Please

I have a 2000 Honda Civic with a 5 speed d16 engine would it be possible to purchase a trailer that is light enough that I could tow my F4i to stunt shows without damaging my poor little car?

Ive seen the fold up trailers at some of the dealerships around anyone have experience with these?

heres and example

Check Harbor Freight (290 & jones or .com) they sell lightweight/light duty trailers you assemble yourself can make a nice bike hauler with little modification. I have one & have been satisfied with it & TxSandman has one that he tows with his mazda 3. Good luck!

check your manual and see what the tow rating is, then see if you can even buy a hitch for one.

if a flippin go-kart (miata) towed it your civic is golden. just keep the weight of the bike centered on it and roll....

You can pull a Kendon or lightweight trailer with your Civic.
The Kendons ae expensive, but I can help you out on pricing if you neeed one.

The fold up one from Harbor Freight will tow fine, and it takes up little space in the garage. It is not really big enough for more than one bike tho....

I got you covered on the trailer. You can borrow it indefinatly. You may have to loan it to squeaky somtime.

your car will pull the trailer fine, 5 speed is a big plus when pulling a trailer.
