Worked well for me, and still kicking many moons later. . ..

On our first job today. I've got at least a motorcycle's worth of weight on there, I'd say.

I had the same trailer, with wheel chock my V-Strom fit but just, the rear tailgate slid up under the rear fender of the V-Strom. The wheels came with labels that said not to exceed 50mph. Nice trailer for the price but man, what a bitch to get it registered in Pa.

Ive had one since about 1992, works great, pack the bearings once a year, you should buy a spare. and some spare lights,The side racks make it easier to back up, so you will smash the lights off it less often. emti

I rebuilt my old lightweight version with 8" wheels and painted it Rustoleum blue except for the fenders which I painted yellow when I ran out of blue. The top of the plywood is painted with roll on bedliner and the bottom with some leftover wood sealer. The chocks are from Cycle Gear $12 on sale.



I went with new LED lights all around including these nice 15" slim tail/brake lights from etrailer.com.


It should be OK to haul 2 dual sports on.

Looks nice, man!

I want to do all kinds of stuff to mine, but race season is coming up, and my tinkering time/$ is going into the bike now.

You guys that have mounted wheel chocks on yours...is the trailer still foldable? I need it to be foldable, so was thinking I'd mount a chock with bolts instead of screws so that you could easily remove the chock and fold the trailer.

Condor products makes a wheel chock called the Pit-Stop that can be used with their Trailer adapter. The adapter allows you to easily install/remove the chock from your trailer. Then the chock can be used in your garage, etc.

That's a great suggestion and a nice piece of equipment, but it costs more than the HF trailer itself!

I've seen used ones for sale on Craigslist from time to time. And the adapter can be bought separately.

Many of the tubular type chocks have mounting hardware that stays in place, but the chock itself is quick detachable, no tools required.

I have to remove the cycle gear wheel chocks and license plate on mine to properly fold and store upright. I don't plan on folding it much, if ever.

I have similar wheel chocks for my HF foldable trailer. I put some anchors into the plywood on the trailer. I don't know the name of them , but they are cylinders, threaded inside, with a flat circular head on one end with 2 teeth to hold this anchor to the bottom of the plywood. Drill a hole in the plywood, push this anchor through from the bottom side, hit it with a hammer, and it will stay, ready to accept a bolt. I fasten the chocks with 1.5 in. hex bolts that screw into these whatever-you-call-them anchors, and then remove the chocks when I have to fold the trailer. These parts do not cost much, and I can use the inexpensive wheel chocks instead of those nice $70 ones.

It takes a few minutes to each time to screw in 4 bolts per chock, but then I can fold the trailer. It takes less than 2 ft. in my garage when placed against a wall.
