and the hitch?

I'd like to add a trailer, but where do you hook up the hitch? The bicycle trailers probably wouldn't be an issue but don't the larger ones need a regular trailer hitch?

bigger is usually better

We had a Yamaha Vino 50 that was a great scooter but we'd get run over in the 45 mph speed zones. We upped to a Kymco Bet & Win 250 and so far, it's perfect.

As someone mentioned earlier, the 125...

I know this isn't a motorhome thread, but I had 2 panels, 3 deep cycle batteries, and a 2000/4000 inverter in our skoolie. The panels would power everthing except the AC.
