Utility trailer question

Do any of you have experience with / knowledge of these Little Giant trailers made in Colorado Springs?

www.letsgoaero.com - Little Giant Trailer

I am interested in getting a utility trailer for misc uses and motorcycle hauling. The various accessories look interesting. Ideally, Id like to be able to get two larger bikes to fit. Ill go to their shop at some point to check them out.

I had never heard of this manufacturer until I did a search for alternative trailers to Kendon.

Thanks for your input.

No direct experience, but I'm impressed with what I see on that link. Very cool design. The tie-down kit looks sturdy enough for a large bike and the payload capacity is plenty. I like the ground clearance. The accessories are cool.

If you get one, write up a review!

The bed is just long enough for dirt bikes, but a full size bike would require angled mounting, or running without the tailgate.

Thanks for the observations guys. I hadn't really considered that the bed wouldn't be long enough. They do have an extension piece available. I guess I'm more concerned with whether or not it would be wide enough for 2 1200s or a 1200 and a 990 although I'm sure it would mainly be only one bike.

I'll try to get over there for a look. Thanks again.

4'2" is too narrow for 2 big bikes. The only way it would work is if you welded on outriggers for the outer tie down points.

I thought the HF 4'x8' trailer would be pretty big, but it was comfortable for one big bike, very tight for two.

That's a nice looking kit, but you'd probably want to spray rhinoliner on the floor - that aluminum skin would be slick.

Taken from the Denver Post. Don't use that kleenex!

Well, use it. It costs 87 bucks.

A few years ago, I had a surgical hospital stay covering five days. I requested an itemized bill and noticed a daily charge of $87.50 for "MCS." It took a large pry bar and a team of horses to get the Administrator to finally cough up an explanation... "MCS" stands for... are you ready for this? "Mucous Collection System." In other words, the box of Kleenex on the bed stand. I'm dead serious.
