Tow behind trailer
« on: July 24, 2017, 09:45:07 PM »
Hi folks, I'm looking at getting a tow behind trailer for my bike.  But here's my dilemma, which trailer is better?  A two wheel or a single wheel; I guess it's like the great oil debate; "mine is better".  If you would be so kind as to include pics of your set-up, info on the hitch etc, that would be great.  Thanking you all in advance eh.

Thanks. One question I have though with hitches like yours is, how does it handle when your in a curve and leaning?  Doesn't the receiver hit the bottom edge of the ball and make the bike go squirly?

It rides and handles like there is nothing behind u. Some folks use a swivel ball and I have one but never found any reason to use it over a standard ball. Remember the hitch is just outside of frame so before it would drag your saddle bags would have dragged way before that so no worries at all.

I pull a two wheel trailer with a swivel coupler using an MCHitch-  Pulls' like its not there.  The only reason I went with the swivel coupler was just in case I dropped the bike for any reason, I thought it might keep from tweaking a fender or some other connection pint.
