Who is pulling a trailer with their V-strom currently?

Well, I decided to take the sidecar off the strom and am currently working on a trailer hitch for it.
I plan on pulling a two wheel trailer. (Actually, the same trailer I pull with my Harley.)
I would like to correspond with another Stromtrooper that pulls a two-wheeled trailer.
Anybody out there?

No personal experience but there's another thread on trailers going on here: https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...-panniers.html

Jack4545 & Trooperette (I think that was their forum names) use to attend the Eastern V-Strom Rally pulling a trailer along with Shasta their dog in it. It was one of the Bushtec trailers setup for that. Jack had a DL650 and so did Trooperette. I don't think they have been on the forum since the account/password issue. Or been to the EVR in awhile. There are some pics the EVR website and I might have a few more. I camped next to them a couple of years.

And I think TeacherJoe here pulled a Harbor Freight trailer somewhere.

Redbarber and Richland Rick have pulled those one wheel trailers too.

That's all I got. Hope it helps.

Here is the thread that was up while I built my single wheel trailer. See my avatar as well.

My son is all the time after me to go into the single wheel trailer business, but I'm less ambitious than I used to be.

Two wheel trailers hitches are certainly easier to make.

Thanks Guys,
I've seen the V-strom trailer rigs at the Eastern Gathering in past years. Red Barber had a single wheel rig.
I guess I'm just not sold on the single wheel trailer just yet and I pull the two-wheeled trailer with my harley so I think I'll stay with two wheels on the trailer.
Hope to see you at thee Eastern Gathering again.
