Looks great! Look at all that cargo space! Where are you going to go with it, now?

Looks good!

Are those 12" tires or the 8", kinda hard to tell in the picture........ OK, My eyes are bad.....

Did you have to do any mods to the trailer? How does it tow?

Im looking to do the same thing.

Thank you wingadmin. Don't know yet but we will see. jobe05 they are 8". It was their smallest trailer. The only thing I had to do differant was I added 2 led amber lights to the back to work as turn signals because like most jap vehicles the turn and brakes are seperate. I will also change the other lights to led because the ones that come with the trailer are a big draw on the electric system of the bike. The floor is just treated plywood that I painted black. Also watch for sales and coupons at harbor freight because I bought this trailer for about 65% of full price. By the way it pulls great. You don,t even know it is there. I too the box off and hauled my pressure washer just so i didn't have to drive my truck to work one nice day. :lol:

Nice! I made my first cargo trailer that way. I mounted a piece of plywood and extended it onto the tongue to have space for my ice chest. I bought a Sears X-Cargo cartop carrier on it with 4 bolts. It gave me 17 cubic feet of space. Of course that was back in the 80's.

Nice looking trailer, I had one just like it some time ago, I put a hinge on the side so I could open it up sideways instead of the lid going straight up front and back, easier to get to your stuff..But it's kinda a pain doing the work by yourself...[hinges, were piano type hinges]

The pictures says it all. Better to ride with a trailer than drive the truck anyday. :D
