Question folding trailer

Hello out there in Stromland.
Have any of you had any experience with the "Stinger" brand folding single motorcycle trailer? They build in Richmond CA. Thanks in advance.

I have the Harbor Frieght folding trailer and it works great. Just towed the Vee to GA and back to MN on it. Folding trailers are great! Usually stands up in the garage when not in use. It takes very little room. I think mine is rated for 1,000 lbs and has the bigger wheels. Oh, have you ever put a swingset together? About the same number of bolts and nuts...took me a weekend.....but it was put together between beers.

never heard of it and I live in Oakland, CA; just south of Richmond.


I have a HF tailer, but it never gets folded.

i own a stinger trailer and have trailered my wee up and down the east coast from vermont to florida many times. Easy to use and very stable no problems at all. I have early version with out the wheel chock. Just grease the bearings and go. Owner of company is very responsive to any inquiry and has sent me spare parts with no charge. Highest quality.

Remember reading an article about it in one of the bike magazines (Rider, I think) and their review was very positive.

The destination is not important, only the ride there...

Current bike: 2007 HD XL1200C (soon to be back on a 05 VStrom 650)

Previous bikes: Several

I have one and really like it. I use it mainly for my KTM off road bike but have used it for the Strom bringing it in for service if I can't get a ride back.
I bought it for the storage capability, being able to fold it and stand it on end.
Very well made and pulls well behind your vehicle.
