That's very similar to the one I am pulling on my current ride. I am very happy with mine. Except for the ~6mpg difference in mileage, I can't tell it's behind me. I did replace bearings and buddies, tires, the pneumatic arms, completely replaced the wiring, put in all LED lights and painted it to match the bike. I think I originally paid ~$500 for mine, too.

Yes its worth it.Looks like a great deal at just $500.00 .I never thought i would pay $1500.00 for a motorcycle trailer ,but its worth it every time i use it.

Mine was in much worse shape and I paid $200 for it and then spent another $600 on getting it into great shape. I'd jump on this if you're able!!! It looks good.

If I was in the market for a trailer I would say it's a deal. I have a much older version, top lifts from the rear, and all I have ever done to it was change tires and repack wheel bearings. Add a cooler rack and a spare tire and you are ready to go. Mine really pulls easy and the individual wheel suspension handles the rough roads just fine.

I have the same trailer and age (cyclemate 20 cubic foot).

Make sure an check the stub axles for wear / being loose.

The stub axles are bad for the rubber and plastic wearing out and the stubs working their way out plus the alignment changes making the tires wear faster.

I replaced mine with a straight torsion axle for about $300.

Thanks guys. My brother got it for $450. It is in very good shape. I think he got a great deal! He is getting the Markland hitch for his GL1200.

I don't think you went wrong, I've got a Cyclemate CM-2000 and have pulled it at least 20,000 miles with no issues! Your brother did well!
