    Open rail Trailer

    FS: My trusty 1970's era Holsclaw trailer that I bought in 1986. They don't make 'em like this anymore. SOLID is the way to describe this trailer. Easily carries a single bike or two 600 pound street bikes (1,300 pound carrying capacity). 1-7/8" ball connector.

    Full suspension (shocks and springs), wicked sturdy. It originally used tilting rails that are also the ramps (included, see photo), but that system scared most of my friends when they helped me load the bike. I retrofitted with Harbor Freight rails and ramp for easier loading.

    The trailer has a spot for two or three rails (I only have two rails), or one rail in the center. I recently made a plywood center platform for loading gas cans. Comes with Bearing Buddies, spare tire and wheel, recently new 12" tires and wheels. $550.00...$500.00 NESR price.

    Had one of these in the 80s. Solid for sure yet easy to move around . I liked the tilting ramps but I was hauling mx bikes. GLWS.

    in a nutshell... built up my Tacoma DC over the past ~2 years to get it exactly how i wanted it (fucking mint right now)... then my commute changed last summer, the fuel cost and length of the truck started pissing me off. downsizing to a GTI + trailer.

    yeah, there is a single-rail on CL i've been eyeing for $1K. great deal but man, i don't want to spend that much. i'm cool with a modded HF or NT for a few hundred.
