    When in my 'trikeing era' at the rallies, lots of trikes were turning up with mini-caravans on the back. These mini-caravans were crazy little teardrop shaped things, but owners used to love them - not see one like above though.

    My trikes used to handle very well, I didn't have rear suspension - I tuned the ride/handling by the tyre pressures - I had large tyres/wheels. I rode a few with rear suspension and it works in opposition to what it should, eg if you go round a right hand bend you have to shift your weight to the right (same on a bike) however if you have suspension the weight transfer will compress the left hand side suspension,,,,,, yehaa! butt cheeks tend to grip well! :Eek!: However, trikes like rewaco, et al, have that sussed.

    I really don't know how the one pictured would get around bends, it may have a 'steering' (drag-slack) axle at the rear - seen those.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :Wink:
