    We went for the Phoenix Big Bike Trailer for ease of loading (with a folding ramp you can ride on and off and still be able to put your feet down at any point - invaluable if the bike is heavy and you're not!)

    We really can't fault it - good build quality and very reasonably priced. Just make sure to fit a reversing camera so you can keep an eye on the load :thumb:

    Hi and :welcome:

    I have a trailer that was made to my specs by Richardson Rice at York.
    It was a little on the expensive side but it is multi purpose in that I can take the top off and use it as a normal trailer for rubbish etc.
    With the top on it provides secure storage/dry storage for my Triumph Tiger 800.

    If you want to have a look at it let me know and I will PM you my address as I am not very far from you.:thumb:

    Hi there, thank you very much for the offer I would appreciate it if we could have a look at your trailer as we can not decide whether to tow the Trike or a bike.

    Hi

    We've had this trailer for the last 10 years, Erde 750CH, nice and light to move around and solid when towing. Easy to strap the bike up anywhere on the trailer frame. Stores in the garage easily :Smile:

    This trailer looks good with that ramp. The "always on" reversing camera is a "must" , we have one too because otherwise you cant see the trailer whilst driving.

    We will be in from tomorrow so I will PM you my mobile number and give you directions. A little advance warning would be useful as well, just to make sure we are in :thumb:
