    Saw this in Portugal, it needed two tow balls to attach it to the van, didn't look good to me.

    hi, we saw it as well. think two wheels on it might have been nice in case you get a puncture. never know what will be next to be thought of.
    not designed for river crossings or cart tracks .

    Haven't seen that one but remember reading something online about a similar setup, but with 2 wheels which swivel like castors.

    Seemed a good idea as it can be reversed inline with the main vehicle because of its 2 attachment points and saves quite abit of length over a conventional trailer. :Smile:

    There is a mega expensive two wheel UK one I've seen at shows, but I'm sure I also saw negative comment about the design or the manufacturer.

    It looks good to me. What am I missing ?

    Looks ok to me,

    but it does increase the length of the tail swing ..

    not a huge problem provided you remember when pulling away.. for example .. fuel pumps.

    hi, vindiboy and me had a discusion about these while we were away thought it was a new idea . just goes to show how wrong we were .
    the question is it a trailer or a body extension.
    seemed to be working fine and the build quality was ok ,dont fancy it myself but it did seem usefull.

    Couple of things

    vwalan - 2 wheels simply doubles the risk of a puncture!

    Mountain Man, for once, I think you've missed the bleedin' obvious as John Cleeves put it. Well made, clever idea, perhaps, but what's the point? It must be much easier to stick a couple of bikes on a rack, and that's all it seems to be carrying. Although possibly the rear position might carry a motorbike, again, why go this way?

    If there's just one occupant, stick the motorbike on a frame and put a folding bike inside.

    If there are two people, and they're desperate to share a motorbike, stick it on a frame and again put one or two folding bikes inside if wanted.

    What am I missing?
