That is crazy cool!
If that tows as good as it seems it could, OFF comes the panniers and top rack luggage.
Why carry around all that unsprung weight?

Just the wife and I burdening the suspension. Then upon arrival, setup camp and unhook the trailer. Sweet!

The only fear I have is she loves to go antiquing........something she can't normally do if we are on 2 wheels. That damn thing turns an S10 into an F150.

Your panniers, what's in 'em, your top rack luggage, etc. is all *SPRUNG* weight, Snake...

Your tire, rim, spokes, hub, etc. are unsprung weight.

Just FYI...

Looks like some great fabrication, and a great idea! Forgive me if I'm missing something, but why is it so long?

Hey Roberto. This pic suggests that any thing on the front end of your trailer is unsprung (except by the Yams rear tyre). Is that correct ?.

My first thought was that this cart was able to carry a biker corpse together with flowers but I'm keeping the intended purpose of carrying my small dirt bike to places I wouldn`t dare risk my Black Pearl Super World Crosser ... the only trouble is that I have to exchange rear shafts when not using the cart until I figure some easy way to unhook it. Any ideas?



Will be ready this week I hope.
Cheers,
Roberto

Try third-wheel trailers. They may be working on a hitch solution for the S-10 which would have the permanent axle configuration that you are looking for.

Ooops.

Still, weight off the suspension. Not that it would likely handle that great towing a battleship.

That's phase two. This gets mounted on his rear rack.
