Re: Pull behind trailer questions
Good questions David.
I personnally will not pull more than 350 lbs (I average between 220 and 310) and even half that will affect your stopping ability even on the LT.
Tounge length - long enough. Cop out I know but I extended the tounge on the HF trailer I pulled. Not sure if it helped. Most imortant item is tounge weight. You should shoot for 10-15 % of gross weight for stability.
Safety chains may be required state by state. To comply most use something that looks good but will break away in an accident. The last thing you want on a bike is a trailer being dragged behind you on a chain.
