camping trailer

Any body using a “camping trailer” behind their bike?

 

I am loving the idea of riding and camping with members, here and the other BMW groups as well as just traveling, but as my bones get older the less enthusiastic I am about sleeping on the ground at all, even with a good air mattress. Thinking that a tent trailer might be the way to go… looking for your thoughts and advise. How do they affect handling and stuff like that.

Some of the Goldwing crowd have them. I've not used one but have seen many. They are ugly, but amazing!

 

Here's one manufacturer here.

Well, I used to pull one with my old Harley.

Haven't setup the 12RT for towing yet.

 

Items of note;

  • They do make smaller campers dopeslap.gif
  • Don't expect to carve the corners. You've got a lot more vehicle behind you.
  • Always stop in a vertical position (no leaning).
  • Watch your tongue weight
  • Always plan on not being able to backup

I generally found the camper was nice when I planned to ride at my destination, rather than during the trip. If the ride is the trip, I found the camper cumbersome for anything other than scenic trips.
