I tow a Aspen Sentry with the LT. Take a look at trailmasterinc.com . I believe the trailer is about 270lbs and has a gross loaded weight of 550lbs. I never load it that heavy. I try to stay about 400 gross lbs. I use the rule that the trailer should not weigh more than 1/2 the motorcycles weight. Although I know its back there, I have towed it over 7000 miles with absolutely no troubles. Trailer brakes would be nice during emergency stops. Just allow for plenty of stoping distance and take corners a little wider than usual and you won't have any problems. My gas mileage has dropped fro low 50's to about 40mpg when towing.

It is not wise to meddle in the affairs of Dragons for thou art crunchy and good with katsup.
