Question

Do they still offer the boat trailer conversion kit for this trailer?

I bought this kit a couple of years ago. At that time they offered a boat trailer conversion kit, which I bought for about $30 I think. It's terrific and I use it all the time. I want to buy another trailer with the conversion kit but it does not seem to be offered anywhere. Anyon know anything about this?

This utility trailer can carry motorcycles up to 1050 lbs. and 4 feet long provided you have the proper tie downs, etc. for securing it to the trailer. Northern Tool recommends you check with your local DOT regarding motorcycle trailer codes.

answer 2
I've carried my 700lb motorcycle on the 8' x 4' deck I built for my trailer. My greatest concern is the high center of gravity and relatively narrow trailer wheel span width in this configuration. I took corners and entered driveways very slowly while watching the bike carefully to make sure it wasn't going to tip over with trailer. For a long worry free trip, you might consider renting a U-Haul trailer designed for hauling bikes. My bike didn't exceed load limits and tracked well, but the high center of gravity left me worried. I only do this for short distances and use great care. I wouldn't recommend this configuration for trailering a large street bike.
