Motorcycle cargo trailer - Info!

If you are an avid motorcyclist it is likely that you'll want to consider the advantages of owning a lightweight motorcycle cargo trailer to tow behind your bike.

The advantages of owning a pull behind motorcycle trailer are numerous and will enhance your mini, overnight or several day touring or camping trips that you'll make.

Some of you will also want a trailer to do a long term tour perhaps lasting from one to several weeks duration. There are so many different makes and models of lightweight motorcycle trailers to tow behind your motorcycle that it can be challenging to make the right choice.

One thing you will need to consider is where you'll travel with your lightweight tow behind motorcycle trailer. Most models are on-road trailers with the ability to travel on reasonable good gravel or dirt roads.

Before you can even begin to decide what kind of motorcycle cargo trailer to buy, you have to decide what you are going to use your motorcycle trailer for and what features you require in a motorcycle trailer. Safety always comes first! You don't want to end up getting a motorcycle trailer that is too large or heavy for your motorcycle. So, choose a lightweight model under the 200 lbs. range.

Consider the benefits of these Options:

  • Welded Construction.
  • Ny-Loc nuts used throughout.
  • Roof rack.
  • Cooler rack on the drawbar.
  • Aluminum Wheels, larger 12” Diameter with larger tires: 5:30 – 12.
  • The latest independent torsion rubber suspension.
  • All Aluminum trailers are low maintenance.
  • 360 degrees swivel coupling (*For sport bikes with extreme cornering angles)



Even though you considered the weight and size of the motorcycle trailer, you need to factor in what the weight will be placed in the cargo section of your trailer. You definitely don't want to overload your trailer or you will have a safety issue on your hands.

It is important to always make sure you load your trailer correctly, evenly distributing the weight in the so that you don't create a trailer that is off balance.

Other things to consider are if your trailer has high speed tapered bearings suitable for highway use.

12" wheels are definitely the most popular and being bigger than 8" wheels won't be doing as many revolutions, therefore reducing the risk of getting overheated bearings.

Ny-Loc nuts used throughout construction to prevent any loosening of bolted on items.

Price is also a consideration when purchasing your lightweight motorcycle trailer. Most people use their trailer 4 to 6 times a year and for the remainder of the time the trailer is stored in the garage or carport. So do you really want to spend more than $2000 for a trailer?

To get the best value for your money. You should get something to suit your needs in the range of $1500 to $2000. Shop for the low price on the one that fits your needs.

Delivery cost is a big factor, some freight charges are over $300.00 Check for total delivered pricing.

Towing a lightweight motorcycle cargo trailer behind your bike can give you additional freedom when riding your bike. A pull behind motorcycle trailer can allow you to take a short or long break with the necessities you need to have a comfortable trip without the need to overload the Trunk & Saddlebags on your bike.
