In my 7'x14' trailer a dirt bike would not go in sideways , I forget the exact measurement but it was under 7' . My wrr is 83" wheel length with another 3" rear plastic and light stuff . The X-Trainer is 86" wheel length and that is the outside .
^ Yes very few motorcycles will fit crossways in a 7 foot wide trailer. In my 7x12 I can get 5 slant loaded with a corner in the back for tools and a corner in front for a cooler. An advantage to slant loading is the handlebars fit nicely over the next bike so they can actually be loaded closer than side by side straight.
I can get small bikes crossways in my toy hauler that's 8'6" outside right at 8' inside but you have to mount the wheel hoops right against the wall.
Not a dirt bike, but a great local runabout.
I liked it so much I installed a second Condor wheel chock towards the front for the bicycle. Works great!
There's still a lot of room left for other gear. I've had our tandem kayak in here at the same time, it will slide right under the sidecar rig.
I did not think a 7’ trailer was not 7’ inside, but that makes sense. 7’ is the minimum for a dirtbike and as someone posted above, some large tail light and license plate assemblies will add a few more inches. Bikes will also get a bit shorter as the forks are compressed.
That would make sense , maybe it's time for a custom trailer .
My reasoning for the 7' wide trailer is you can sleep cross ways in the trailer with 6 1/2' interior width. My 6' which is only about 5 1/2' across you can't sleep cross ways. So if there is two of you, then you have to sleep at a diagonal to fit and it gets crowded.
The Unicorn bike needs a Unicorn trailer .
Nice , how wide is your trailer? I’m thinking of a sidecar rig sometime in the future. I’ve been keeping an eye out for a cargo trailer to haul 2 Van Vans. Most used ones I find are 6’ and I wonder if that’s wide enough for a sidecar, probably larger than your cool RE outfit.
They call it 7 foot wide, it measures closer to 6 1/2 wall to wall inside. I'm thinking it was 6' 7" or 6' 8" if I remember correctly. There's a little extra room on either side of the rig so it could be wider and still fit.
Edit: My picture makes it look tighter than it really is. In the first picture with the camper I have a Volkswagen in the trailer on the way to a car show.
Thanks for the info!
One of my favorite threads on ADVRider, let’s keep the pics/info coming. Getting so many great ideas, thanks everyone!
It is similar to the heater semi trucks use to heat the sleeper. It can be fueled with Diesel or Petrol. It will mount just about anywhere, most people seem to mount them under the passenger seat. It has a separate intake and exhaust for combustion that is routed to the exterior of the vehicle, and then the fuel line is connected directly to the vehicles fuel tank.
06’ weekend warrior 21fk I’ve had since 08’ . 16’ f150 w/ 3.5
How can I find the installation guide for one of these? I checked out the website, but wasn't able to find anything on it.
