Trailer suggestions for towing CVO roadglide
« on: August 06, 2020, 01:25:15 PM »

Hello all,

We are purchasing an Class C motorhome 23ft, with a I5 turbo diesel with 5K tow limit.

Trying to figure out if I should use my existing PJ T1 tilt trailer or replace it with an enclosed trailer.

81" x 16', trailer weights about 1900lbs with a metal deck, I could always purchase a rock shield to mount in front of the bike to protect against objects, or a mud flap option to the trailer hitch.

I dont use the PJ T1 trailer much, but if I purchased a new box trailer it would need to be large (3500 lbs) enough to tow my John Deere 1023e.

Cheers!

I'm a huge fan of the Aluma MC10 trailer coupled with the Wheeldock system. I bought the mounting bar that turns the wheeldock into a quick release setup and have it permanently (well, It's bolted on and I'll never take it off) on the trailer. My quad sits on the trailer in the summer time and that QR bar is not in the way at all.

While the Aluma open trailers are great (I own a MC 10), if you plan to tow in the winter you will get a lot of salt on the m/c. I towed f/ AB to AZ in a blizzard 3 yrs ago and have been fighting electrical issues ever since. An enclosed trailer is always better if you can handle the weight.

Solution: Let the wife drive the Motorhome and you ride the bike! TADA!

I really think if you bought a decent enclosed trailer in the end you would not regret it.

I haven't used it that much for the bike, less then a dozen trips, but when I did it was nice to have. For one thing, the bike was parked in the garage every night.

I use aircraft aluminum track on the floor and Condor chocks, which I stopped bolting down years ago.

I looked at the Ironhorse before I bought my Aluma, those things are stupid expensive!

Yes, and have excellent resale value and minimal drag on fuel economy, so the total cost of ownership pretty low.

I bought a new trailer this year. It is an enclosed Legend brand. 7’x14’  ramp rear door, side rv style door and it is all aluminum. It has a 3’ V nose and is aerodynamic. The trailer weighs 1950 pounds . Less than some flatbeds. During the pandemic they are making bargains. I got mine for 6700 out the door. It pulls great.

Installed a biker bar and now loading takes about 5 minutes to open the ramp, ride it in and lock the door.
