What is the weight of this trailer, and how much weight is it designed to carry?
It's perfect, as long as the weight rating on the tires and axle are up to the weight of your bike and gear.
good stuff. Jackal comes in at about 560, plus the chock and tray...lets call it 620# to be safe.I'd ONLY trailer long distance at high speeds, otherwise I'm on the bike.
the photo looks like the bike would end up too far forward of the axle and put too much weight on the hitch.. but you can maybe move the whole axle forward on the frame if it's attached with those U bolts.you definitely want to get the balance right or it will tend to bounce or weave around.
here you go, changes the proportions a bit.
I used to haul my buell on a similar trailer (more for jet skis- no curved cross members). I put an aluminum 'C' channel down the middle of the trailer and already had 'outriggers' for hauling mountain bikes next to a stand up ski (forks on outriggers, rear wheel by fender on rail). The aluminum channel sat between the ski rails supported by the short cross piece in your photo and the rear cross brace. I left the ski winch/stop in place for the front wheel, no chock. The ramp was bungied to the trailer while under tow.For bike only use, I would deck the trailer at frame level. Keep the deck to the frame dimensions. Use a condor wheel chock bolted to the frame/deck.I would make a ramp out of a few of these bolted together to get 36"+ wide (I did for my trailer): https://www.grainger.com/product/45NN92?cm_mmc=PPC:+Google+PLA&s_kwcid=AL!2966!3!50916706197!!!s!82690160997!&ef_id=WOznWAAAAbykRQ80:20180410195654:s You should have enough room under that trailer to slide the ramp under the frame while still clearing the axle. Slide out ramps are kick ass.The reason this works great is you can ride the bike up the ramp, put the wheel in the chock, and let the condor hold the bike while you strap it down. You are going to need to mount outriggers to allow strapping the bike forward at width. I would mount a piece of unistrut to the underside of the frame if fabricating is not your thing (put eye hooks attached with strut nuts to secure): https://www.grainger.com/product/45YV25?cm_mmc=PPC:+Google+PLA&s_kwcid=AL!2966!3!50916776517!!!g!81032040477!&ef_id=WOznWAAAAbykRQ80:20180410200101:sFor a few hundo + trailer you can have a sweet bike trailer. Don't worry about trying fab something to get the bike low... not worth it if you make the ramp long and use a condor. Key is to have the ramp and deck WIDE enough to flat foot the loading.
