    I'm a Rigid hitch dealer, Call them to find out where their closest dealer is.

    When building a motorcycle trailer ( There will never be enouph tie downs )

    If your going to build a fold down ramp dont forget to factor the ramp in on the tongue weight and make sure 10%- 15% of the trailer gross weight is on the tongue with the bikes on it.

    So lets say the trailer weighs 900 lbs. and each bike weighs 800 lbs. on a single axle trailer that is 3300lbs total.

    If your tonge weight is 330 lbs it will tow like a dream.

    No clue. I have a trailer mfg and supply place in town so I haven't researched it yet. I'm still in the stage of finding a trailer I really like and talking to the owner about it.

    I'm also curious. I'd like to build a trailer to put my TB302 on. Even though I don't need dual axles, I want them for a better ride. I also want shocks on it to smooth it out even further.
