    Looks like a good idea, How did is work out? how does it handle? not sports handling issues, but lazy cruising handling?


    I'm a bit confused about this one.
    Is it a trailer for a motorcycle (I hope not!!!) or is it a trailer made using some parts from a motorcycle?
    As l8nite said this needs a lot more info & idealy bigger pictures.

    it's a trailer to be pulled by a motorcycle... you see a lot of people with them when the go camping/touring on their bikes

    I know about motorcycle trailers I've seen dozens hauled a few & owned two myself :-)
    What worries me about this one is that a single wheeld trailer requires a two section towing joint one that only moves in the horizontal & another that moves only in the vertical, if you put a universal or cup & ball joint on it it would end up on its side.
    The semi rigid joint isn't a problem on a trailer like the UniTrack or the N-Line as all weight is low down directly behind the rear wheel, hence the twisting forces on the bike are negligible.
    On this trailer the frame & cargo box sit above the wheel the weight is high up at more or less the same height as the rider, even unloaded this could cause a few problems but fully laden I can imagine it being a real issue unless the towing hitch is built in such a way as to transfer the weight & twisting forces low down on the bike such as with the mono-trail.
    Of course I may be mistaken but looking at the pictures available it appears that the hitch will be set high on the bike.
