A good trailer for hauling a motorcycle is a must for riders who like to travel with more than just a bike, but the prospect of riding that bike up and down the ramp can be a little scary. These hauling trailers from The Ultimate Trailers are an ideal solution. They use compressed air to lower to the ground automatically—no ramp required.
The AST1 Single Bike Trailer is designed to carry a large touring bike, such as an Harley-Davidson Electra Glide or a Honda Gold Wing. A 24-inch extension is also available, allowing an AST1 to carry up to 11-foot-long choppers.
With this system, you simply flip a switch, deflating the company’s proprietary Air Lowering/Air Ride System, and the rear of the trailer drops to the ground. Another flip of the switch and the onboard 12-volt compressor (powered from your tow vehicle) raises the trailer back up to ride height. Watch this video
on the company's website to see the trailers in action.
The AST2 is designed to carry two medium-sized bikes and many trikes. The AST3, with a 72-inch-wide deck, is designed to carry two large touring motorcycles or a large trike.
What’s more, the automatic suspension on these trailers makes them easy to pull, while the design is lightweight and aerodynamic. The trailers’ suspension rate automatically adjusts to the load, always returning to the predetermined ride height, which makes for a smoother ride and exposes the load to far fewer bumps and knocks on the road.
The Aero Rock Shield on the front of the trailers is designed to deflect gravel, sand, mud or other road debris up and over the bike, while also contributing to the aerodynamics of the trailer and allowing air to flow smoothly over it.
The UltimateTrailers are available in multiple styles depending on your vehicle, including single bike and double bike models, plus models designed for trikes and Can-Am Spyders. You can find more information at The-Ultimate-Trailers.com.
