This summer, the travel vacation of choice has undoubtedly become the road trip. Most people are opting for the open road instead of flying in cramped and enclosed airplanes with so many travel restrictions in place. Perhaps there’s no better way to experience the open sky this season other than getting on your motorcycle. Many experienced and beginner bikers are taking advantage of the summer months to spend some time to explore new places. And if you’re out on a long trip, you might have the need to pull your bike on a trailer at some point. If you’re looking to give your ride a bit of a break on the road, you might want to consider towing a trailer around. Here are 10 of the best motorcycle trailers you can find on the market today.
10. VersaHaul VH-55DMRO Motorcycle Trailer
This trailer is designed to hold two motorcycles with a total weight of up to 600 pounds. The VH-55DMRO is made with the highest quality steel, which makes the trailer completely rust proof. The trailer also uses retractable tie-down bars to keep bikes in place during movement. It also has built-in wheel chocks to give your bikes extra protection.
9. Trackside Motorcycle Trailer
If simplicity is what you’re going for, this Trackside trailer will give you that with a little more. It works with both Class III and IV hitches, and it’s easy to install. The trailer can accommodate up to 500 pounds of motorcycle weight, and it’s designed with powder-covered steel for durability. It also has an anti-tilt capability for a steadier performance when you’re on the go.
8. Kendon Stand-Up Dual Ride-Up SRL Motorcycle Trailer
This Kendon has a double motorcycle capacity. It is a lot wider than other trailers, but it does have double capacity as well at 2,000 pounds of maximum load. In fact, you can use this trailer to pull two full-size Harleys. With heavy-duty wheels, integrated wheel chocks, a ramp, and steel frame, this motorcycle trailer is one of the best out there. However, it does come as a heavy load, so make sure your truck can handle all the weight.
7. MotoGroup Double Dirt Bike or Motorcycle Trailer
With a 600-pound capacity, this MotoGroup trailer isn’t designed to hold the heaviest of motorcycles. You can use that capacity to hold one motorcycle, or you can also use it to hold two if needed. This double trailer is made with an impressive aircraft aluminum that’s lightweight and rust-resistant. It also has an anti-wobble device for extra stability. You can drive with your bike on the bumpiest of roads without having to worry.
6. Black Widow SMC-600R Deluxe Steel Motorcycle Carrier
This simple hitch mount is designed to carry any motorcycles with a wheel width of up to 7.5 inches. With a maximum weight capacity of up to 600 pounds, it’s fairly versatile. It has an extra long mount for quick loading. Although the make is a combination of steel and aluminum, the build is sturdy enough to be trusted. It’s also compact and easy to put away when not in use.
5. VersaHaul Motorcycle Carrier
With a weight capacity of 500 pounds, this motorcycle trailer is made to carry dirt bikes, racing bikes, and other smaller bikes. It’s designed specifically for class 2, 3, and 4 motorcycles. VersaHaul is a well-trusted brand that’s been around for over a decade. They are known for manufacturing some of the best trailers around. But the best part about this particular carrier is how light it actually is. It only weighs 16 pounds.
4. Trinity MT3 Motorcycle Trailer
If you happen to have not one, not two, but three bikes, the Trinity MT3 is the perfect trailer for you. The trailer has three integrated wheel chocks that make it easy to load up. The base is a trailer deck, so if you want to use the Trinity as a utility trailer—you can. You’d only have to remove the railings. The frame is made out of tubular steel, so it’s strong without the weight.
3. North Star Trailer Sportstar
Two of our favorite things about this trailer are the front and side railings that give your bike a little bit more support. Even though it looks more like a utility trailer, this North Star is made to carry motorcycles up to 700 pounds. It’s easy to put on or take off, and the back railing pulls down to serve as a ramp. The good news is this: when you’re not using this as a motorcycle trailer, you can use it to haul other things as well.
2. Best Choice Hitch Carrier Rack
What we love about this motorcycle trailer is the simplicity of it. Motorcycles are bulky enough as they are; it’s nice to get a trailer that’s small enough for what you need. The Best Choice Hitch Carrier is designed to hold motorcycles that are up to 500 pounds. This means you’ll only be loading sports bikes and dirt bikes on this trailer. With a full steel frame and an anti tilt mechanism, this trailer is both sturdy and safe.
1. Kendon Stand-Up Single Ride-Up SRL
Durability and longevity is one of the reasons why this Kendon motorcycle trailer is the best. You can load anything up to 1,000 pounds onto the wide base, but it’s neither bulky nor cumbersome. In fact, this trailer folds up nicely into a neat, vertical package that stores easily into any small dresser space. The steel support of the Kendon is incomparable, and it has a ramp that makes loading easy. With nine colors to choose from, you can even match the trailer’s design to fit your bike as you please.
