Thoughts on this folding trailer?

Any thoughts on this trailer? Looks like something my accord could tow ... some plywood and chalks and I think I'd be good to go... what say you?

Thanks

I've seen someone with one at teh track before and they work great. Guy was really inpressed with how well it stored in his garage and took up very little space. He was hauing it with a 300 series beemer I think, so your accord should do the job well.

I think that may be the one Squanto has...if so from what I understand it is a great trailer. And it takes up VERY little space in his garage.

I have a trailer that holds 2, but it's not very stable. I may buy one also, let me know hoe the wood decking and chocks work. I may do the same thing. I have a trailer hitch under my 528i, it works great.

I have almost the same one and have towed a single bike to MSRH and the Hill Country on it, as well as two bikes around town. Two bikes is a real snug fit.

That one in the link shows a better tongue design than what mine has.

I use Bike Grab chocks on it and it tows fine and folds up out of the way when not in use.

Yeah, that's what i have. The only complaint is that they don't give you any tubes or anything to route the wiring in, which is a pretty easy thing to to on your own. I will eventually weld mine, as it's bolted together right now. The frame flexes quite a bit, like if you were to stand on one of the front corners, it would twist laterally an inch or so. Other brands (like the one 04RSVR had) are sturdier, but also heavier. Mine pulls well up to about 75, after that my truck tends to make trailers fishtail.

That's my only complaint, is the single tongue, rather than a V style.

But then it wouldn't fold up as easy.

Oh yeah - wow. I didn't even notice the tongue design change. Mine is a full Vee from the tongue to the trailer frame. I will take pics when I get home.

Also, if you're not planning on folding the trailer to store it, then you should look into finidng a single jetski trailer and put wood on it. It'll be stronger, and normally they're galvanized. That was what I was originally looking for, but I found this [used] for a great price.

I use that trailer also. I've never had 2 bikes on it, but I've used it for my bike, trips to Home Depot, hauling car parts around, hauling a hot rod frame to Austin and back. I've probably put 7500 miles on it since I bought it. I tow with a '97 Thunderbird, by the way.

Mine has the full "v" front frame on it. I also boxed the frame rails and welded in a cross support where I mounted a clamp-on trailer jack. Without the boxing and support, the rail would twist if the trailer was loaded at all.

Good idea to box them in!

Someday I'll remove the decking and weld all the bolted connections. I just haven't felt the urge yet.

A while back while searching for info on these trailers, I found this write up, which has some good ideas in it:

I have one of those & it has held up pretty good (2yrs), first used to haul a couple of dirt bikes on it behind my s-10. I bought an enclosed trailer & have since used it for any other bullshit I needed a small trailer for. I now use it to haul a loaded 110g diesel fuel tank & other equipment (prolly around 800lbs altogether) on & offroad, it works fine.
