    Anyone have a 2 bike trailer i can borrow 8/13?


    I have a friend coming up with me for TTD Monday 8/13, and my 4x8 trailer isn't going to be able to fit both bikes.

    I'm looking for a light, open trailer that can fit 2 sport bikes and be towed by a car.

    I have a 4x8 harbor freight trailer that i usually use, which i can exchange with you for the day if you have a 2-bike and are only bringing one. Pic of my little one bike trailer attached.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    A 4x8 HF which that looks like will fit two bikes. I've done it.

    You can, most definitely, fit 2 bikes on that trailer. Aside from chocks and tie down anchors, I'd recommend the bigger wheels they sell at hf.

    While the bigger wheels would be a nice touch for added security. They aren't needed. Bill (mustang) and I had both of our bikes on his 3 years ago. Pretty sure Bill had around 5,000 miles on those mini 8" wheels.

    Interesting. I didn't think it would fit two, guess i'll buy another chock and give it a shot.

    you can do it. probably just have to set the chocks about a foot in from the edge. since you dont have walls on the trailer so you can move the bikes almost all the way to the edge. just be sure to anchor that rear wheel good so it doesnt hop off the edge of the trailer

    Scottie ducati had one of these and two two bikes down to VIR I think twice and it worked just fine stock. He had three chocks on it (one middle and two on the sides for both set ups).

    The one thing he did was put unistrut off the front to make the tie down spots wider.
