I saw this on C/L Nashville this morning and thought some might be interested in the concept? I've never seen one like this before, very unique... ;-))

Did you look at the coupling? (picture 3) To me, it looks like the trailer would track with the tow vehicle... As I stated, I've never seen anything built like this.

Looks like it would be pretty unstable for a Goldwing to sit on. I wouldn't want to use it.

I agree, and I would be worried about the weight on one wheel?!

I thought it looked like a good idea myself... Also, the way it is set up with those jack wheels, one could easily manuever it into tight spots by hand, (Zero turn style... ;-))

I've seen a mono wheel trailer behind a scooter, and another one behind a Harley... I talked to both guy's, and they liked 'em!

The device seems like a PIA, you have to use jacks to support it, what is the upside of one wheel?

Well it is one one tire to replace and the possibilities of a flat tire are limited to .... (drum roll please) ONE!



Less towed weight

Less rolling resistance



Other down sides -

Less towed capacity

Initial cost may be greater because of limited supply

There have been many things made that had no advantages. I'd say that trailer is one of them.:shock:

There is one advantage. Backing it into a driveway. That thing was made for someone who can't back up with a real trailer.

I'd be afraid of it swinging into on coming traffic in right hand turns.

Someone tell me how tongue weight is managed with either the automotive or the motorcycle version.

I saw things totally different.
As it said "Goldwing Hauler" and there was no Goldwing on it.
Now if it said "Harley Hauler"..................
Well, you get the idea......
