Trailer advice

I was looking for a trailer for track days and for my kids dirt bikes occasional use. I looked at:

http://trailerinabag.com/index.php

which looked OK, then I saw:

http://www.sportutilitytrailers.com/...6TE-3TS76M.htm

this one folds up and store and looks pretty good. I need to put either two sport bikes or three small dirt bikes on it. I would mind putting my big dog on it but I think the rear tire (300MM) is going to be tough to fit.

Anyone have any experience with a decent lesser expensive trailer?

Thanks,
-z

You would be better off buying a regular trailer from lowes or Tractor Supply. Then put some wheel chocks on it then you can use it for other things also for the same or less money. If you have a Harbor Freight store near you or check the website out they have a folding trailer for like $250 and all it needs is a floor.

Enclosed is the way to go. I have a 6'x12' Haulmark I wouldn't know how to do without. I've hauled everything in that trailer! Keeps everything dry and secure.

My dad stores his bike in the trailer over the winter... and the trailor is stored in the garage... Zero dust/dirt when he brings it back out each year...

That's not a bad idea... but I wouldn't have enough room to store it in the trailer... but not a bad idea.. I could store the lift in the trailer for the winter and just leave the trailer outside... gots me thinking...

I do plan on getting a trailer next year...

I never considered an enclosed before, but I could use the storage.

Yeah I won't touch a FI BD for a while. Just like sportbikes a few years ago... it took them a couple years to get all the kinks out.

yeha my snowmobile trailer is enclosed. locked on a ball welded to a pipe in the ground. i keep my quads in it all the time. frees up garage space.
