Thread: trailer suggestions

  1. #1

    Default trailer suggestions

    I've been looking for truck parts that could help me haul my bike. I browsed and found some suggestions on Kendon. They offer single and dual trailers which seem good and easy to store. Do you guys recommend it or is it better to look for other options?

    Kendon trailer will store in a limited amount of space but is just for motorcycles. Personally, I prefer a trailer that can be used for as many different applications as possible, and just keep it outside with a lock on it. JMHO. Hope this helps. Smitty

    I think I remember Folks,..

    Riding as a passenger in a luxury sedan pulling one of those "stand-on-end" trailers with a Knuck on its way through expressway traffic to McCormick Place.

    Details are fuzzy so long ago, but I clearly remember the trailer wheel passing us on its way to Lake Michigan.

    Sounds like it was improperly connected and no safety chain or cable connecting the trailer to the tow vehicles frame was used.

    Its hard to safety chain a wheel you're rolling on, Chris!

    Reminds me of that classic song by Kenny Rogers, went something like this: "You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel"

    Whenever you see a loose wheel, Folks,...

    Please toss it back to 'em.

    How much is your bike worth compared to hauling it on a low budget trailer? Just saying.

    I have a hard time understanding what wheel you were rolling on? The safety chain goes from the tongue of the trailer to the frame of the towing vehicle.
