Unigo

There's been quite a bit of discussion on this trailer. A good starting point is here:

I have a 03 LT with a uni-go.

The only time I notice the trailer is when I try to back up.
I also notice it when I want to carry camping gear for wife and I. We can get tent, Queen air mattress, two winter sleeping bags, winter clothes including my size 14 shoes.

I also really like it as I can move it into hotel rooms easily- including elevators! Kinda like having a large suitcase on wheel. Be sure to get the front handle as this really makes a huge difference in the ease of moving it about.

I also added LED side lights to mine. I just didn't feel it was too visible at night from the side.

Handling- well, I have shocked some people with how well LT and Uni-Go go through the NC mountains- you just don't know it's there. It has minimal effect on MPG.

Thumbs up Satisfied Unigo Owner

We have enjoyed our Unigo for many years. It is a perfect match for the LT, as long as you don't want to haul the whole house. It has minimal effect on curves and gas milage. Only time I notice it is when following large trucks which create a lot of wind turbulence around you. Also if you have a strong side wind, the Unigo of course increases your overall surface area like any trailer except it becomes part of your bike, so you feel the wind effect. After awhile, however, it becomes only a slight PITA and you learn to handle it with no problems. That's my opinion. We love it!
