PostSubject: Cargo option for touring   Fri Apr 04, 2014 10:36 pm

I was just reading about some one wheel trailers and found this system and thought some folks here might be interested in hauling a few extra creature comforts while touring. There are plenty of options available at their website.

It might inspire someone to build one. I already tug a 2 wheel trailer, but this looks handy and relatively easy to hook up.

Larry,
Back in January of this year, BIGTRAIN was working on a luggage carrier for his golf clubs. This looks like it would work fine. A lot safer design.

I thought of BigTrain when I saw this too. In fact, they have a lockable golf club box option.

I designed this last year for use on my Kymco Xciting 500. Since going back to a Silver Wing, I have less need for it (the Xciting had very little onboard storage) and so had not built it. I hope to do this over the '14/15 Winter as I have all the parts, steel, fittings, wheel, etc.

My concept was to keep the weight/CG as low as possible, but make the trailer simple, easy to use compact to store and can be handled like a wheelbarrow when off the bike/scoot. I plan to use it for backcountry camping on my Yamaha XT600, and occasionally on the Silver Wing. Anyone want to collaborate, let me know.

Exactly the same concept you have there as the original post.  I am not a welder type guy or I would have modeled one like this.

Here is a trailer I had mounted up to my Helix.  I was going to paint it as a Coke Cooler but after making it work, I didn't use it all that much as I had the Goldwing and my two wheel trailer.  So I sold it.
