They have always done a nice job of color matching.  You're gonna love it!

They did an excellent job. First trip will be Sturgis!!!!

I scored a Roadstar last weekend just before Eureka Springs.  Saw the Craigslist ad for the trailer up a little east of St. Louis.  Seller was asking only $750 for it.  Saw this on Saturday and knew it wouldn't last the week until the Eureka Springs Gathering was over so went up Sunday and brought it home.  Didn't have to do anything.

It's a 2005.  Just a basic Roadstar.  Clean inside and out.  Tires two years old.  Threw it full of things to haul down to Eureka for the week.  Sometimes just get lucky.

I've been wanting a Roadstar for a long time.  Had others but never kept them.  This one I'll hang on.  Black works with anything.  Not going to dress it up much (if any) at all.  Just have the thing to use.  Only parts I ordered for it are a tongue stand and a lock replacement.  The lock in it requires using the key to open the lid.  Replacing it with a lock kit that also has a push button so won't always have to use the key.

$750 for a 2005 Roadstar?  Dang it, Don.  Did you purchase some lottery tickets that same weekend?  Very well done, sir.

Every week long or longer trip, we pack sparingly....there are times I sure do miss my Bushtec days.... :'(

Reading back over this thread, I got a bit nostalgic for my previous bushtec trailers.  Found this picture of my '97 UC (last year you could choose  either Carb or FI...it's a carb) with the last one I had, Genesis color matched....dang that thing pulled good.  I've got a pic somewhere of the first one, 1994 Turbo II I got from John, installed at Bushtec trailer in Sturgis before the trek home on my 1994 FXSTC....still looking for it and will post when I find it.  First gas stop off I-90 riding home, I forgot the thing was back there and upon braking at the top of the ramp, slid right through the stop sign and in the middle of the road...glad nothing was coming.  Lesson learned and did'n'a do dat again.... :nervous:

Here's what I used to tow.

This American Legend served us very well for a number of years.  However when my wife took over riding this '97 Ultra and I purchased my '05 SEEG there was no need for the extra space.  We decided to sell the trailer, and thankfully for more money  ;D  than we purchased it "used" for years earlier.

Nice rig, Grizz.

Found the 1994 FXSTC pic before trailer.  It was loaded down (riding two up, too) and one of my riding buddies, Doug G riding my old 1989 Classic which is sitting behind my bike...first trip to Sturgis, circa 1994....wow, no grey in that beard...and our other friend's bike (who made all 5 1990's trips to Sturgis with me, Steve H..he was taking the pic), the '93 90th anni UC.... ;D

Side note....the 1989 EG Classic that Doug was riding was also owned by me (bought used) and by Steve (who bought it new)...it's still running, by the way.

That red rig looks sharp!   Very nice.

I know I totally lucked out on the little Roadstar.  Seeing your pics maybe I should make mine red after all....  ::)
