HF trailer owners...

Are you using a ramp to load your bike or do you remove the pins and rotate the rear to the ground?

I was thinking of mounting the plate between the casters. It would be just above the ground when folded and would not hit when tilted.

Mount the plate to the fender... much better in the long run. And use a ramp.

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

I have it wrapped around the back of the trailer. Not the most legal, but that's how ghetto racing rolls

The trailer is to steep when tilted for street bike. Here is a picture of my HF trailer setup. I also bought the ramp and wheel chocks from HF.

Jetman, do you have any problem with that setup, i.e. the jeep? I have a Wrangler with 33s and am considering one of these small trailers. Does it pull ok?
