The only time you know it is there is when your back up or parking (need longer spot).

Garage
I don't see any suspension on that trailer.
I've pulled a trailer with my RSTD for many thousands of miles but would not pull one without suspension. I don't plan on pulling one with my DL650.

The one in V-Dubs original post is available for sale. It is marketed for trail riders. It is very lightweight.

Here is one I just found with a very innovative suspension setup. I like it!

No this was taken from killboy website. But it would be easy to build. I wonder how it would do in slow speed turning

I wonder if you would need to register it and get a license plate in some states? (and put lights on it).
Also, little things like possibly paying extra to ride the ferry to Newfoundland and places like that around the Northeast.
Is it hell to turn around on a steep jeep trail or is it best to just unhook it sometimes and then turn around?

Very interesting idea though.

My only issue is when I ride out west. California has a stupid law about motorcycles pulling trailers are subject to a 55mph speed limit

What do you need to carry in that extra space? Couldn't you just get larger panniers and top box?

It would take up a lot of space in Garage when not used, so unless your retired and traveling all the time it could be a pain to store no?

I suppose if your riding two up and Wife needs the kitchen sink then it makes sense (to me).
