The most common trailer hitch kit sold for the 1100's is also the same kit for the 1200's with some additional brakets. The kit comes complete to fit either bike. I have it on my 1100 and didn't use the additional brakets, have them sitting on the shelf just in case I upgrade to a 1200 instead of a 1500.
The more I look at the tupperware on the 1500's, the more I'm leaning toward a 1200. I hate spending 3 hrs pulling off plastic to do a 5 minute repair job.
I have the 1200I and I thought I read somelace that they "weren't designed to trailer". I don have a trailer for mine but would think about it if that were possible, Any comments on this thought? Thanks in advance.
I hope you enjoy your new bike, I don't know of any motorcycle that was designed to tow a trailer, there might be, but a lot of folks including myself tow a trailer with all sizes of Goldwings.
Thanks Dean, that being said, I relaize that no bike, except maybe a trike, was designed to haul a trailer. I have thought about it for the future but wasn't sure if the 1200 was "compatable" with that operation. Yea we just got it this fall so haven't put many miles on ityet. It is sort of ironic in a way, the last new bike I looked at was and 84 aspencade, mine is the interstate but what are a few accessories amongst friends. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.
