Think that'll fit on a Cavalier? Cause I was thinkin' a short 4x8' trailer, but I think that'll be a little easier until the R6 is devoted strictly to racing, then it goes in a covered trailer.

Add rear air shocks, if Cavalier has rear springs you can also buy spring helpers. Make sure and buy 500 LBS tongue weight trailer hitch ;)

Doesn't that thing exceed the tongue weight max for your hitch (probably 500 pounds) plus doesn't it throw off your CG (center of gravity) on the van??

What about just like one of those "one bike" trailers where it has like that "tyre guide" down the entire thing? Just asking instead of like a 4'x8' trailer with gate. Though if I'm gonna go all out and get a trailer, I think I'll spend the $1500 on a covered 5'x10' trailer that I saw at Lowes.

Liked Versa-haul compact ness. When I travel spend lots of times in big cities, parking can be a problem with trailer. Versa-haul and bike fit into normal parking space with SUV :dthumb:

My 02 Durango 4x4 5.9 has no problems with load of my Versa-haul :cheers: Hitch rated for 500 LBS, bike in 420 LBS range. Did not even have to add air shocks or any helper with Durango ;)

:iagree: I have something similar (Mototote sport) and I've been very happy with this type of trailer system as well :dthumb: , use it on my Montero sport. I did have to order the versahaul trailer light kit, since Motote's light kit has been out of stock for awhile.

Was able to get the light kit from this place http://www.discounttrailers.com/ and they have some of the best prices for ramps & trailers that I've seen to date. Wish I would have seen this site before I ordered mine direct from factory.

:twfrox: :cheers:

I was wondering how these systems would fit on wranglers (one of the vehicles Im considering to get next), since the spare tire is mounted in the same place the bike will go. But at the same time if it does fit, I could use additional straps to tie it to the back frame posts for added safety.

When I bought my montero it already had a class III hitch, but personally, I would go with a class IV hitch on my next vehicle...(if I dont go with a P/U Truck).

I believe that you can get like extenders for the hitch to push it out past the rear tyre on the Wrangler.

If that was a Chevy, GMC, Toyota or Dodge, I'll take it off your hands since you seem to be unhappy with it. You can leave the bike in the bed too, that'll help out with some money for when I sell it! :wink: :lol:

That's good because if it was any of those I'd let you have...

On a serious note. I would have bought a GMC/Chevy truck if it hadn't been for Ford's remodel. The truck in the pic is the nicest riding and all around truck I've ever been in. It's really quite inside, the new 3 valve 5.4L Triton V-8 is amazing... and the truck constantly surprise me. On the way down to the GAP...3 bikes, 3 guys, a trailer, A/C on, 80mph, and all our gear.... 14 MPG!!
