    Simple motorcycle trailer

    Does anyone make a light single motorcycle trailer? Just axle, and a beam to the towbar to mount the bike. I have seen some really neat single-wheel ones overseas but not here. I have a Corolla with towbar and just want to move my trail bike from here to there - not too far.

    Hi, I used to make trailers, it's legal to also make a light trailer without springs, which would be suitable for your purpose, I have made a couple of three bike trailers, but for a single bike trailer I'd suggest this arrangement.
    it would mean the cost would be around half that of a small general purpose trailer , I'd make one for around $ 8-900 , galvanized

    Thanks - but I have looked on TM. I have seen a small one with a box on it locally - could remove the box and bolt/weld a ladder frame on top ... it has suspension too.

    If you have basic tools and basic working knowledge so you can make it easily at your garage, ( https://bit.ly/2T9QrQ4 ) check this link a guide to make trailer step by step and if you arent able to make it so there are some good single trailers available at amazon you can buy from there, Recently i have got mine from Amazon which we are planning to use for NYC 24-hour towing services.

    I built mine from an old jet ski trailer ..... works really well, and is also low for easy loading. My car is small, a Daihatsu Sirion, and no problem there.
