Excellent trailer. We took it to Alabama last weekend and it gave us ZERO issues. Pulled straight like it wasn't even there. Tires held constant pressue the whole weekend. A/C blows COLD, and pre-wired lighting inside was great. Wish I had the cash. I'd be on this.

We were able to put 2 bikes, a generator, microwave, 3 helmets, 4 gas cans, 4 lawn chairs, all our gear, our bike stands and our large luggage bags in there with no problem. At night, we squeezed all that AND a 3rd bike in there when we locked it up at the track.

Somebody pick this up.

Buck, that is a steal for sure.

Someone is getting a helluva deal if they buy this one!

Todd its not going to fit in a garage, I have a 6 x 12 and its is almost 8 ft tall with out the a/c on top. My old trailer would not even fit in my garage and it you could not even stand up in it.

How much does this thing weigh?

Can an RX8 - 350z pull it? They have a class 1 hitch on it, with a weight limit of 2000 lbs (towing).

Anyone know?

No it will not fit in a garage unless you have 9'doors. It pulls well even with small trucks, not sure about behind a 350Z, weight isn't the issue. It has full head room inside so a 6'3" can stand upright.

Man Buck - I wish I'd have know about this 30 days ago. I just bought a used 6x10 that turned out to be a real POS. Started fixing things and got in too deep to turn around - it's fine now, but it was a mess - rotten wood everywhere - none of the wheels were the same - bent door - etc. etc; oh well live and learn, and the AC would have really been nice.

Buck, can you bring it with you this weekend? Or do you use another trailer to come to the track in? I'm very interested.

Well basically what i'm asking is what's the weight of the trailer? My tow vehicle would be an RX8 or 350z. Both of which come with a class I hitch only, meaning tounge weight to not exceed more then 300 lbs and overall weight not to exceed 2500 lbs.

Do you know how much trailer weighs itself?

thanks.

I have a 6x10 with a GVWR of 2990#. The trailer's Curb Weight is about 1600#, and the Tongue Weight is typically around 10% of the GVWR (I think).

I'm sure his trailer would be similar or close to these specs. If you can keep your gear within 900#, then technically, you can probably tow it. But you're engine and tranny are not gonna be happy pulling that weight, not to mention the wind factor. I wouldn't do it.

He's already got additonal weight on his trailer with the A/C unit, spare tire, metal shelf, etc..... not to mention the stickers!

HEY!! those are go faster stickers I'll have you know............
Yeah I wouldn't think you'd want to tow it with anything less than a 1/2 ton truck. Tounge weight is right at 300# empty. The trailer is at the track BuellRider, you can look at it this weekend.
