Re: trailering an LT
It's a takeoff on the Baxley, made in Alabama, which is the very best - if pricey - trailer for a heavy-weight like the LT. Their single rail trailer is north of $3500. It is a one person operation to load and unload. Release the upper frame and it lowers the bed almost flat on the ground. Their front chock grabs the front end when you roll onto it and you can get off the motorcycle right there and it stands, held solidly. Grab the upper frame, pull down (no cranking) until it locks to the tongue and it lifts the bed off the ground and that's that. You can load and unload while the trailer is detached from your vehicle on flat ground - it stays in place. For winter storage in the garage, I've left my LT on it - easy to move them around when needed during the winter. A couple of ties to compress the front forks, one to keep the moto from rolling backward, and you are loaded. Excellently engineered and built. Rolls on auto tires, diamond plate aluminum bed and rock guard, spare tire, tongue jack, back-up flags, easy to grease bearings, it's a piece of work. I first saw them at CCR in Tan-Ta-Ra, MO.
Unfortunately I know nothing about the one about which you inquired, as to quality, workmanship, etc., but I have a Baxley and have had it for five years and swear by it. And in the several CCR trips I've taken with mine, it has performed flawlessly.
I'm getting my LT converted to a trike this winter and the trailer will be for sale, but it is up in Wisconsin, but Baxley is right next to Georgia, of course.
Free at last!
