2 Bikes in a 6 x 12 Trailer

Looking at getting an enclosed 6 x 12 Cargo trailer to load possibly 2 bikes. I just got my first bike think my wife wants one also so going to get one big enough for 2. And if you have pictures that would be helpful also.

1. 2013 Super Glide Custom
2. Sporters or an 883 or Rice Burner probably a 550cc

A couple of years ago when my son and I both had back surgery in the same year I hauled two big bikes in a 6 x 12 enclosed trailer to Sturgis with no problems, Both big bikes. First one in on left side forward, second one in backwards on right side, takes two people to load to help with keeping bikes upright as they have to be close to the sides but it worked.

Trying to figure out if 2x Bikes will fit in a 6x 12 Cargo Trailer and what it would look life for space.

Buddy of mine has a 6x12 v-nose trailer. We put a street glide and my fatboy in there at the same time. bikes pretty much had plenty of room at the time. but my FB didn't have bags on it yet, so not for sure what it would be like now. there was plenty of room in the nose for luggages and such.

Of course you are talking a little more money, but if you want plenty of room, you might look at going with a 7x14. in the 6x12, handle bars will be tight against the wall.

but i would suggest staying with the v-nose for sure. adds space and less wind drag to pull as well.

No matter what trailer you get, get a tranny cooler on the JK or risk burning the tranny up.

I have a tranny cooler already off roading must looked at the 7x 14 weight will be to much. I will be at 3,000lbs with a 6x 12 Dry 960lbs tow 800lb bikes and 400lbs of "STUFF" will be at 3K. which is max for a single axle.
