I like to place the hitch receiver in such a way that the left trailer wheel tracks behind the rear motorcycle wheel.

For the hitch on my GS I just bought a section of receiver tubing,, and welded U brackets underneath so that it sets on the sidecar frame. The U brackets take all of the lateral force and I use steel plates and shackle bolts to keep it on. Comes off real easy if I want to remove it.

I offset the tounge on my trailer so that both wheels track in the sidecar wheel tracks. I am like Claude and I do not like the trailer sticking out the left side of the rig.
