Anybody use this Kendon 2 bike trailer?
« on: December 22, 2020, 04:12:37 PM »

Local guy has one for sale at a good price and wondering if anybody has experience with it??  I have limited storage space right now so enclosed is not an option.

I've got one which is about 15 years old. They are terrific. Stopped using it much when I went to touring bikes full time as why trailer when you can ride in comfort?

Looks well built but not a fan of the little 13" wheels for highway use though.

I had one for a couple of years.  In California when towing a trailer the speed limit is 55 mph (you can get away with 60 mph) so the small wheels were not an issue.

I had the single bike version, biggest pos I ever owned. They claim it’s for hds etc but it’s built way too light. One trip to az and back pretty much finished it.

i have the dual ride up.  towed 2 road glides from louisiana to california 2 summers ago.  had very little impact on fuel economy, instead of 19mpg, i got 15-16mpg.  could barely tell it was even back there.

and to answer the critics as to why tow to ca when you have 2 perfectly good touring bikes, there are several reasons.  we were able to make the trip out there in 2 days.  wouldn't have been able to do that on the bikes.  not to mention the 107° temp across texas, arizona and new mexico.  once in cali, the weather was perfect, we were very well rested, and really got to enjoy our riding out there.

I currently own one. It's the dual version like you are asking about, Except mine is the "Special edition" Orange / Black.
I love it, Very well built and pulls like a dream. It's standing up in my garage under it's cover right now. Takes up very little space.

Thanks for all the responses....I am trying to look at it over the weekend to see what kind of shape it is in. He stored it outside under a tarp, but says it is like new. Not sure I believe that, but we will see.....

So if you decide not to buy share the location. I would like another one! they pull great. Wonder if you could get a trike on one?

There is another one in PA if you are interested. It's on Facebook Marketplace.

if you removed the 2 rails and replaced with one center rail, i bet you could.  would probably also have to do something about the ramp, as is, i don't think it is wide enough for a trike.  though to make sure, i would follow up with kendon to verify.

though it appears that their trike trailer is significantly different.   https://www.kendonusa.com/products/trike-trailer-folding-spyder-trailer
