Are you looking to attach a trailer to your bike?

The Owners Handbook states :

However, there are a couple of very  Old Topics here :

Thanks 🙏🏻 @coconut !

The eBay one looked nice but is gone. I will likely get it fabricated. There’s a matte from USA that made his own hitch for his cargo trailer and will send me further installation pictures and details.

If you hear about a supplier in North America please give me a buzz.

Thanks again

It's unlikely I would hear of that.

p.s. "@" isn't used here !

Nice job! :062:  How much does the trailer weigh, and how about some pictures of it opened up ready to use?

 :046: Hello there !

The trailer’s dry weight (with the options included) is about 350 lbs plus about 30 lbs or so for the gear so the total weight is about 380 lbs but ….. the critical is the tongue weight is is currently at 38 lbs. (The goal should be to keep it between 10-15% of the total weight so I am ok)

I am planning to go camping soon and will take some “field” pictures.

In the mean time here’s how the pop up camper looks inside
