Does anyone know when they'll be available again?
He has one for sale on facebook and I think it was listed on this thread.
Yup, got an email from the man himself so I'm gonna put my name on one.
You can't go wrong with his trailer.
FYI, I turned the order page back on on the website. I'll leave it on for a while until the new shop is done and ready to move into..
Some new work done on the dual sport trailer....
RotopaX toolbox, 2gal RotopaX water jug, 2gal RotopaX fuel container.
Two large Cabelas dry bags.
A Yamaha TW200 and moto-mule trailer ready for adventure.
I'm intrigued by the dualsport trailer...Looks sweet. I can't decide between something like that, or an easily removable enduro sidecar like you can get from DMC ($$$).
Question - have you run in to any issues with lighting or licensing requirements? I know that my motor vehicle regs describes a trailer (more or less) as a "device with 2 or more wheels attached to the rear of a vehicle with a pivoting hitch.." So that tells me that a trailer with only one wheel isn't a trailer at all! lol.
Have you run in to any issues with this? I ask because if I had to have this trailer licensed, it would have to be inspected, and I'm just not sure if something with a motorcycle wheel and a unique hitch through a hollow axle would pass an inspection here. I do intend to speak with a few inspection places, and of course the DMV next time I'm in there.
Will an Action Packer fit inside the new racks ?
Some have had them inspected and licensed. Some states require a safety chain be added. You have to license them as a home built trailer, one state required that the moto-mule stickers even be removed.. Funny, because they are made out of a reflective vinyl.... Each state is different, but for most, motorcycle trailers fall under the radar.
Haven't tried that yet, I built that to haul dry bags.. I'll test and see.
Had a fun weekend with the trailer!
Here's some video from the trip:

Have you had any feedback selling them to Canadians in respect to licensing? I've looked and talked to who would be in the know, and apparently if I register it as a home-built, like you say, it's up to the inspector to deem whether or not it requires an engineer's evaluation...same as home-built motorcycles, and trucks lifted more than 6" here.
Can't have any fun in Canada you know!
So, any Canadians have any hiccups with licensing these?
You made the Killboy Highlights this week
I've shipped almost ten trailers up to Canada, but I haven't gotten any feedback about registering them, sorry. Hopefully one of the guys up there will offer up some info here.
Have you ever made a hitch to fit a maxi scooter?
Not yet, does it have a hollow rear axle??
No, they don't really use a traditional dirt bike axle. It's the engine on one side and the muffler on the other.
I've seen some custom hitches that attach to the frame of some scooters.
Thanks for that.
I've seen a lot of impressive pics of MotoMules in action, but now I'm truly humbled.
This past long weekend I was able to turn the moto-mule into a rocket. This trailer is well travelled & likely the first of many to sport such wear and tear. I will fab up a means of further support to the upper portion of the headstay soon.
