It's just some nylon material I bought a couple years ago at a fabric store that was going out of business.

I got super cheap HB trailer. It was 160 shipped. I got rail separately for 65. Then my friend welded on some reinforcement and strap arms. Works great for my small dirt bike. My volvo doesn't even know it's there.

motocinch.com is an awful website. Videos of assh*les wheelying while passing cars, but you really have to dig around to see the product.

This is our 3-rail trailer:



Much more secure and easier to load than the 5x7 utility trailer we used before.

I added some 1-1/4" oak truck decking outside & between the rails to walk on, and so crap doesn't bounce up on the bikes.

My gas can fits exactly inside the channel, so with one strap is very secure. I don't like the outside tie-down angle on the outer rails, need to make an outrigger of some sort. Saw an angled one in this thread; that's a good idea since it gets a better angle in less width.

I'd like to add a dry, small, lockable tongue box, for straps, odds & ends.

Mike - how do you carry & secure a ramp on that trailer?

I currently have a 4x8 open trailer that I picked up at Home Depot. I bolted a wheel bracket in the floor and it works pretty well for now. The trailer below is the one that I want to get. We had one at one of my previous jobs and it was awesome. The deck drops down to ground level and the one that we had was rated at 10,000. JLG makes them in both open deck landscaping style and solid sided box trailer.

I actually haven't, yet. This was the first time I've used it to haul anything. The TTR is pretty easily lifted on to the trailer as well as the 400ex. I guess I haven't thought about the ramp. Maybe I could drill a hole in the ramp and the trailer and run a pin through, to hold it in place? I'll have to think on that one.
