Here is a video with a camera looking back at the trailer while riding. Shows Pavement, Gravel Roads, Dirt Roads, and Rutted out Trails...

It has been brought to my attention that I should post the specs of the container I recommend using with the trailer.

It is a Rubbermaid ActionPacker, model 1172, 24gal, 90.8L, 26.5x19.3x17.4in, or 67.3x49x44.2cm

I get them at my local Lowes Hardware store for about $30 new.

Other containers may work too, that is just the one I recommend.

I am excited to see what others come up with for tubs or flat decks.

Mine arrived yesterday morning. But, alas I am 400+ miles away. I won't be able to check it out until Mon. Hope to give it an initial shake down next weekend.

Some basic data about the trailers:

The basic trailer is just under 30 pounds.
The ActionPacker tub is just under 10 pounds.
The rear fender is just under 3 pounds.

The boys at ProCycle are putting together a lighting kit for the moto-mule trailer for me. I will add it to the moto-mule website as soon as it's ready. Licensing in each state is a little different, both in the requirements they have and how much they enforce them. These trailers are so small, they often fall under the radar. However, as more riders use trailers, DMV offices will start setting up regulations for them.

I put together a FAQ page that addresses this question and others here: http://www.moto-mule.com/trailerfaq.html

It has a link to DMV trailer requirement and info page.

Any estimate of how long that will be? I was planning on doing lights myself but may wait until they have a kit available.

Mine comes Wednesday!
