Camper Trailers

Well I've been gone awhile, I traded my RT and went to the dark side for a year but I solved that mistake when I decided to take a nap on it at 65 MPH out on a lonely stretch of road in Eastern Colorado. to make a long story short I spent 6 weeks on life support and just over two months in two different hospitals. Today it's been just over 10 months since the accident and I've been in five hospitals and I'm still recovering at home.

Now with the good news. Monday morning one of the forums sponsors Herb at Grass Roots BMW is delivering me my new black 2009 K1200LT Hannigan Trike. What a great person to work with. I can't say enough good things about Herb and his staff.

I'm looking for information, suggestions, recommendations and absolute don't buy feedback on a pull behind camping trailer. I've looked them all over on the internet and of course they all say they are the best, but what do you guy's out there who have them recommend? Thanks in advance and it's great to be back on a BMW

Re: Camper Trailers

Spend some time over at the trailer towing forum,
there's a lot of good information over there,
also some of the Goldwing forums have a lot of guys that pull campers.

I had a Bunkhouse for a year or so, great camper, comfortable to sleep and dress in (lots of room)
really liked being able to access the cargo area anytime (on the road or set up)

I just didn't like pulling it with my K1100LT or my K1200LT,
to damn heavy for my kind of riding,
that shouldn't bother you with a trike.

Here is another interesting link for you.

Re: Camper Trailers

Don't have anything to add to the trailer issue, but glad to hear you are up and around and getting back out on the bike! We need to get some Iowa rides going. Take care,

Re: Camper Trailers

I have a bunkhouse trailer and love it. Bought it slightly used with a lot of the options included. Have towed it with the LT up to Wisconsin and down to North Carolina without any problems. The wife and I use it for weekend getaways to a campgrounds in Pa. that we can reach on a Friday night. We set up camp and ride all day on Saturday. Carry a heater for cold nights and even a small air conditioner for those hot nights. Really big and roomy inside. With the trike I'm not sure you will need the optional brakes, but for two wheels they are a great help in slowing this thing down. Weighs about 325 lb empty and we probably add about another 100 lbs in gear to it.If you are looking for a deal on a used one, watch the Goldwing site. That's were I got a lead on mine.

Glad you're back up and back out there riding.

Re: Camper Trailers

I have an Aspen trailer (alot like a bunkhouse). Queen size bed and plenty of storage. You can find them on the internet at Very nice and lots of accessories including an air conditioner.
