I like having the bike on the trailer, so I have the bed of the truck for tools, cooler, etc. and it's easier to get the bike on the trailer than it is in the bed
I had a friends bike in the bed this day.
Usually wheel chock butted up against the front of the box to keep the front wheel stable, then straps from the bars via Canyon Dancers down to the hook mounts on the floor of the front of the bed.How do strap the front of the bike in the back of the pick up?
What brand is that?Hitch mount carrier. Have done trips from 5 miles to 3,000 miles with zero issues. Old pic but you get the idea. View attachment 84874
I ran a canyon dancer on the bars, and strap to the front hooks in the bed. WITH GOOD RATCHET STRAPS. Never fails to amaze some of the shit people use to strap stuff downHow do strap the front of the bike in the back of the pick up?
I have seen guys use the 90's astro/safari vans to. Great vans actually, AWD, hydroboost brakes, good v6's in them. And I agree this is a great optionI have been looking at sprinter vans(Dodge/Volvo/Mercedes). I think one of those done up would be cooler then shit. Wouldn't have to worry about all the extra stuff you would have to deal with a trailer. parking/storage.
Well in the cites anyways I know some of you guys in the burbs/sticks have no problem parking a trailer but in the cites (Minneapolis) you can't leave a trailer unattached on the street. And storage places want min 80$ month for outside storage
I would think they have enough room for a bike/gear/spares and a couple of tool box's.

Damn 7, I use to take a 426 Yama to the Gandy dancer tails every weekend on 1 of the hitch mounts. I bought mine from bob's cycle supply and I think it was rated for 400-450lbs.
I don't think I would've rolled the duc on it though.
You have BB's
Whatever works right? This dude is local to me- I'm sure he gets a lot of looks too!I have a small trailer similar in size to gunther's. Used to pull it with my C300...was a bit odd, and got a lot of funny looks from people, but it did the job.
