Enclosed trailer

Hello members.
Does anybody have a any opinions about the Toy Carrier Single Pod Trailer that is made in Canada . Will a K1200 LT fit and can it be loaded and unloaded by one person riding it on to the trailer.

I have one and with a wheeldock (www.wheeldock.com) one person can load the LT. I have to remove the antennae for both the radio and CB because I fear they'll be damaged by the trailer lid, but it's a 1 minute removal and 2 minute install. PM me if you need more info.

NeoDoc, that is quite cool.

Do you have the web site for the trailer?

I'm glad I helped you with your decision. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I would highly recommend you forego the standard wheel chock that comes with the trailer and get the wheeldock. It's removable, in case you want to use it in the garage, and it holds the bike very well. One important caveat is that you should remove the mirrors and stow them in bubble wrap in the trunk of the bike. Although they clear the gas shocks and hinges of the trailer, you can accidentally scratch or knock one of them off during loading and unloading, as the clearance is tight. All in all, though, this is a minor detail. I'm sure you'll enjoy the trailer and get good use out of it. Just be careful when loading and unloading until you get used to the ramp. Good luck and PM me with any questions.

Smile Very Happy with my Classic Enclosed Trailer

I have a yellow Classic Trailer. Not made in Canada but with a Wheeldock works just fine. Storage and travel in the winter and hall other stuff in the summer. I have attached a link of what I have. LT fits fine and moves on and off easily.
