Greetings you all, I just started thinking of pulling a trailer for camping trips this summer. I have read a lot of reviews on different hitches on the Wingstuff site and from what I read the Bushtech hitch is the way to go? Found a gent in Green Bay Wisconsin selling a nice looking fiberglass trailer for around $1400 color matched with a spare and aluminum mags. Looking for any input for you experts out there, I have 43 years of riding experience and pulled many trailers with cars and trucks but never with a bike yet. Thanks for any input

A rule of thumb with a bike trailer is not to exceed 50% of the weight of your bike which is trailer plus cargo. As with a car, longer stopping distances, be carefull braking in a curve because although your wing is turning in a corner, your trailer weight forces strait ahead which puts pressure on your back tire trying to force it out from under you. Not too aggressive on throttle up to help save your clutches & tongue should be level when your weight is added to your bikes suspension.

Give er gas!

How does this little trailer look to any of you, I like the price of $995 plus $300 to color match another $90 for aluminum mags and $45 for a spare tire

Difficult to gauge the exact size, but that looks a great trailer to be towing with a Wing. :clapper:

What sort of suspension does it have do you know?

As said, towing behind a bike is easy enough, just need to be extra aware that it is there since it will be almost un noticeable as you roll down the road. I see you will be pulling with an 1800 so you have the advantage of stonkingly good brakes.

I towed one similar to that on my 1200. As stated it's hard to even know its there. Just don't pack it too heavy and you should be okay. That looks like a nice trailer and price. Been thinking of another on myself. What brand is that?:)
