Exactly!!

I have been looking for a used Aluma MC10 forever and I finally picked one up this past weekend. It weighs only 380 pounds and my Civic pulls it with ease.










It's big enough to double as a utility trailer.

Nice find. I originally was looking for a BC10 as well as an inmate here was guiding me in that direction. But the fact that it doesn't have stake pockets meant I could not add the Aluma metal or home-made wooden sides to the trailer which lessened it's value to me. The few that come up for sale around here are always around $1.5-2K which is a bit high. There was a nice BC210 (I think that's the model, the 2-bike trailer) that was 5 years old and the owner wanted $2400 for it. Really?

If I may ask, how much did your BC10 set you back?

Couple More Options

For those with no place to store a trailer try one of these:
http://trailerinabag.com
Pulled my brothers FJ on one for about a 1000 miles and worked without a hitch (no pun intended).

Second option is unique as you get some accommodations or something to host the tailgate party after a ride:

Looks like there is enough room for 2 bikes on the front deck and you get a queen size bed also.

I don't mind at all. The PO made a big deal about the fact that he had upgraded to Dexter axles and I don't know why he would do that or what was wrong with the original axles.

I paid $1600. With all the upgrades and the fact that you can get a new one for about $2000 I think that I got an OK deal but not a great one. These don't become available that often and when they do, they are snatched up pretty quickly.

For me, the bottom line is that I was able to get the trailer that I wanted for a decent price.

Love the hideaway large ramp.

Me too. It makes all the difference in the world.

I have used the skinny single track ramps and the fold-down mesh ramps that just kill your fuel mileage.

Call me a happy camper.

If you move the wheel chock can you get 2 bikes on there?

You could probably squeeze a couple thumpers on there if you staggered the chocks but the tie downs would be at less than ideal angles. Aluma makes a wider two bike version of this trailer which would probably be the way to go.

I would go for ramp instead of a trailer. It's more convenient... you can check this out if you need one. http://www.onsaleramps.com/

Thanks!

That is strapped down and ready for transport.

I am using the MotoCinch system, which you can see in the second picture. It cinches the bikes down by the footpegs. It is a very nice system, and makes strapping the bikes down very fast and easy, and they are very secure.

OR NOT SO SECURE!!!!
