Well, I just dropped a ton of money on my bikes, and at this point it doesn't look as though I'll be able to make enough money to buy a new 6x12 or even a 6x10 trailer...
I have been looking around and I have noticed that the 5x8 trailers seem to go new for around $1000-$1500. This is much more inside my price range, as I plan to put some money away incase I need it later into the mx season.
I plan to use this trailer to haul my 2 bikes (yz125, yz400f) and sometimes my little brother's yz80. We can fit all 3 and a bunch of other stuff in our trucks 8ft bed, and I look at a 5x8 trailer as a second, enclosed truck bed so to speak. We will also use this trailer as a mini camper (Nothing too elaborate, just throw some Therma Rests and Sleeping bags in, or maybe some old fold up cots. Of course we would leave the bikes outside.
Has anyone done anything like this with a trailer this small? Does anyone have any pictures of their set-up?
Or should I just wait and get a 6x10 or 6x12 used, maybe a month or two into the racing season?
Hi i'm new to this but here i go.I just purchased a 2007 haulmark 6x12 v nose,ramp door trailer.I was wondering if you guys can give me some ideas what i could do to the plywood floor to protect it? I looked in to rhino lining but its like $650 not counting the ramp or v nose. Will the rust oleum epoxy shield for garage floors work on wood? E bay has 10 mil checker board vinyl flooring.Thanx for any help you can give
Need some feedback on this one. I'm interested in finding out how most of us transport our bikes. Doing some research on the most common method and can't seem find a reliable survey.
Let me know who prefers van, truck, open trailer, closed trailer, toy hauler, or receiver hitch rack.
Look forward to the results and will post percentages.
Might as well sell the trailer that I haven't used since buying the schmotovan . . . it's been chilling in my buddy's garage long enough. Will's got the first crack at it, but if he's not interested, it'll be up for grabs.
Here are a couple pics of it from the day I brought home my 450 . . . mmmm so pretty!!! I added a bracket to hold a full sized spare wheel/tire which is not shown . . . I also added a few additional eyes to allow for additional strap points for the bike or other stuff you are carrying. Has the box up front for a gas jug. The rails can be removed easily to just have the flat diamond plate if you have stuff to haul. Has a short ramp stored underneath, and a fold down stand at the hitch. To store it, it folds in half, then goes upright onto casters so you can roll it into position once upright . . . only sticks out about 2' from the wall when upright.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year TT,
I am wondering if any one has any experience with the cheap'er style hitch carriers found on e-bay.
I currently have a harbor freight 8 ft trailer but my truck sucks gas when I pull it and I am looking to just sell the damn
thing and get a hitch rack. Currently I have a topper and no where to store the topper.
There is one that is welded that seems like it might be strong'er than the others however ugly it may be...
Thoughts are appreciated!
I am towing a 04' CRF450R.
Just made a move to SLC from Fort Collins, Co and had to put up with this bullshit over Vail pass! 4wd, lock'd doing 30 mph, Turkeys off the road everywhere but not this Turkey!
