My wife and I just got back from Florida and I did get a lot of looks with my rig. I've been pulling trailers for about 20 years, Mostly with my (former) sport bike. Now that I changed the hitch, I'll keep on with my 'Wing. Any other neat rigs out there?:waving:

The long tongue helps alot. The trailer itself is 14' and the canoe is 17'. The only time I have to be careful is turning at slow speed, I would guess below about 10 mph. The wind is not a noticeable problem because the canoe is aerodynamic and because of the long tongue. The trailer was made by a company in Florida (I don't think it is still in business) that made pop up campers for motorcycles. I had them use the basic frame and put a long tongue on it to handle the canoe. The center of the trailer has a 7 1/2 ' channel in it to accomadate the wheels of another motorcycle, Which I have used to haul other bikes with my sports bike.It is a simple design and could be made by anyone who can weld.

I just built a trailer from a HF frame with 12 in tires, narrowed it 4 in, extended the tongue 22 in & added a 68 x 35 cartop carrier [20.0 cubic ft storage]. Pulled it several hundred miles last weekend, heavy, & didn't notice it was there.

Cost was about $425. + time & work.

edit, forgot pic:

I have a cyclemate 2000, It is my work truck. Last weekend I brought home a A-65 continental airplane engine in it.

Here are a couple of the planes I have worked on out of the trailer
