Sets up in about 5 minutes, takes about 10 to take down, has access to cargo whether set up or folded down. Very important to remember not to overload it! Having lots of room doesn't mean you have to fill it all up! Sorry I don't have any pics of it set up.



You should just get a car dude! Haha

Really?!
Tell you what , when your beloved spouse become physically unable to ride on the back of a bike, but will travel in a sidecar to continue to enjoy the motorcycle experience with you, come talk to me.
Otherwise, take your noob ass off to a corner and STFU!

The guy just totaled his 1200GSA (solo) last week so apparently this is how he's amusing himself.

I just received my Lee-sure Lite trailer today. It took a couple of hours to unpack it and set it up. Top Quality Product with great sales service. I bought everything but The Factory. I have to finish installing my DMC Hitch on my 2010 GSA and wire up the lights. I've never pulled a trailer with a bike before. I do have a commercial Class A License and 2 years OTR. I don't drive Big Rigs anymore but I sure do miss it. I hope this will help to fill that need. I bought both the Screen Room and the Deluxe Add A Room. I'm looking forward to some great camping this summer.

Congrats & enjoy it!
With OTR experience you'll adapt fine. Allow more room for braking. Slow early for corners, but you can power through them once set up. Braking in a turn pushes your rear wheel to the outside, you will learn that your bike will lean further than you thought!
One of the first things I noticed when I first pulled a trailer was the bike suspension worked a lot better with the gear in the trailer as opposed to (over)loading the bags and rack.
Practice loading your gear to achieve the correct balance. If you have a cooler, stay aware of the weight difference when food & ice is added.
Have fun, it's nice to sleep off the ground.
