    Looks like its going to put a big noseweight load on the towbar and thus the mh back axle, I'd say from the look of it more than half the weight of the bike.

    Looks a substantial build compared to Easy lifter just make sure you have the load capacity on the rear.

    Do they do a MP3 version? Wouldn't fit on there.

    You might be right Encantador. Although when I first saw the pic I thought an MP3 might fit. Mmmmm!

    Having looked closer, depending on the space between the two end rails it might fit, would need the wheel stop moving and a second one added.

    I've just sent them an enquiry to ask. I'll let you know if and when they respond.

    May also need a winch, not sure how easy it would be to push it up a ramp, holding both grips whilst climbing over the rear wheels.

    I saw a similar one behind a French MH this year, it was carrying a MP3, I took some photos, will try and find them.

    This is mine (adapted for MP3)


    Not sure if the company is still around though.

    looks odd to me, as though the wheels are in the wrong place, a lot of the weight would be hanging off the back. Must work though (you would hope).

    don't the wheels swivel? looks like it has been reversed on to a drive maybe...

    does type approval come into play with these sort of set ups...
