Trailer Size For 2 Bikes

Recommended Posts

hey, how big does a trailer have to be to fit just 2 full size bikes

will a 7 by 4 feet trailer fit a 125 and 250?

7 foot may be OK but a 4 ft width is a little tight for two bikes, each bike will have approximately 32" wide handle bars which side by side equals just over 5 feet. The important thing is having enough width so the tie downs have enough angle to keep the bike upright.

my trailer is 7x4, i have fitted 3 bikes on it before (but it was a tight fit with 2 facing backwards) and maybe another half a foot would be handy cause i cant shut the back gate, 7 1/2x5 would be your best option

7x4 will fit 2 bikes no worries. But why not just spend the extra and get a 7x5 ?

Makes loading much easier, and you can always carry a third bike easily.

I've got a 7x5 and I fit 3 450's just perfectly.

a few people I know have, and do very often, fit 2 on a 4x8 trailer (somehow onw dude fits 3 staggered with middle backwards). You just need to stagger the bikes/chokes. It is a little bit of a tight fit, but with the 2 staggered you shoudl eb alright!

Also, aren't most pickup beds only 4' wide? (i know you get eyehooks on the side though)

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
