Unigo Trailer to pull behind me LT

Getting ready for a two week trip up into New Mexico and Colorado. I'm thinking about buying a Unigo trailer to pull behind my bike. Anyone have any comments /watchouts or suggestions?

Picked one up second hand from Lonewolf and it is great! I haven't taken it on a long drive yet but I have been pulling it behind in town to get used to it and you would never know that it is there. Wife likes it too.

Re: Unigo Trailer to pull behind me LT

Geez Dan...I told you not to let the wife know about it...now it's hers too. So you are still stuck with the one saddlebag (the one with the CD player) for all your stuff.

I didn't have mine long, and pulling it behind the LT was great, but behind my H-D...not so much. The LT's hitch and mouting was solid which made it tow better. Great little trailer and you will love it at hotels ect where you can just wheel it in as a suitcase. I liked being able to wheel it into the house a week ahead of a trip and pack as time allowed, instead of stuffing it all in the trailer at the last minute.

Re: Unigo Trailer to pull behind me LT

I found a used Unigo in Utah 2 years ago..Paint matched allmost perfict....
Drove up from Albuquerque to Salt Lake City.
Made the deal and had the local dealer service my LT and install the wiring . Pulled it back to NM (450 miles) never knew it was back there. My wife kept looking for it several miles.
As a driver you will not be able to see it behind you unless you are doing slow sharp turns.
Packed it up last July and headed to Las Vegas (HOT 114 degrees) Bike still performed great.
One great thing is if you miss a pot hole the single wheel trailer misses it also as apposed to the two wheel trailers. Bike misses the hole and the trailer hits it.
Good luck If you are in Albuquerque say

Love mine. Like the others have said, really don't notice it behind you. I did notice a slight drop in gas mileage though. Can get a lot more in it than you think. If you're buying it new, get the packing bags. They are really nice to keep things seperate and just yank them out when you get to your destination.

Re: Unigo Trailer to pull behind me LT

We bought ours new a couple of years ago. Have taken it to WY and back, and some other trips. It's indispensable now, two-up. All of our clothes, plus laptop and extra riding gear for temperature changes. I don't notice it during takeoffs, but it makes its presence known during stops - it takes longer to brake, or my braking effort, IMO. Not a big deal.Another advantage over two-wheeled trailers is you won't hit the gas pump.

At approx. $2700 new and 5 cubic feet of storage, the per-cubic-foot price of a Bushtec (25 cu. ft.) is much less. Twice the total expense? Yes, but less per cu. ft. If you really, really need to haul lots of things (lawn chairs, tent, 12 pairs of shoes for the SO) then a larger trailer is better for you. For us, the Unigo takes everything we need.
