Trailer In a Bag

Anyone have any experience with the Trailer in a bag. Looking to purchase one and trailer my RT cross-country.

Is there something the matter with the RT that you can't ride it?

Re: Trailer In a Bag

I have one and like it. I have used it to tow a Honda Nighthawk from the Texas Gulf Coast to Colorado and back with no problems. It tracked great behind my VW Passat.

I have also towed my LT on it to Austin for service three separate times with no problems.

For the LT (or your RT), I recommend the add on Condor Chock option which makes it easier loading as it will hold the bike upright while you dismount and secure the bike

+1 While I haven't towed mine any really great distance, I have towed about 100 miles with it and found it works perfectly. And the Condor chock is the only way to go, and their price on it can't be beat.

Fair warning: Try buying the trailer at a bike show or other event where they are displaying for a pretty good discount. And after you buy it, a sales person from the factory will call to "confirm" your order, and try and sell you a TON of add-ons...

Re: Trailer In a Bag

Used to have one. Trailered a R1200C Montauk from Anacortes, WA to Hanford, CA. Trailer worked great. Stopped every couple of hours to check the tie downs and wheel hubs for excessive heat. No issues. Also used this trailer to tow a TTR-250 from Los Angeles, over the Grapevine, back to Hanford. Again, same routine and no issues. Probably just me, but I sweated the wheel hub heat thing. Just my .02, good luck with whatever you decide.

Cheers!

Re: Trailer In a Bag

Thanks much for the input. Looking at buying a used one found on craigslist. Will take a close look at the hubs.
