Looking for info on good brand to haul multiple bikes.
I wanna find fault in this, but I can't. :laughSince I own a landscape company here in Florida and have owned probably 50 different trailers over the last 10 years I'll weigh in on this.
If the floor is wood make sure it's 3/4 pressure treated plywood floor. Make sure the cross beams are as close as the company that builds the trailer is willing to install them and make sure every seam on the floor is supported by a beam. You can tell by just simply looking down at the floor. If the seam has hardware on both sides there's a beam underneath it. I've seen 12", 16", and 24" installations. Since the trailer you are looking at is going to start at 18 feet long do some math on total potential bike weight + trailer weight to see if 3500lb axles will work (tandem.) Don't buy the heavier axles if you don't need to buy them. Although, if you do get the 5000lb axles anyway your resale value will probably be higher. With regard to axles GET TORSION AXLES. Doesn't matter who makes them although I recommend Dexters. Leaf spring setups see 3 times more maintenance and broken suspension issues than any torsion set up I own. Also torsion systems see less 'lefty righty' travel than leaf systems. If you can find it get the extended tongue. All of mine are 2 feet longer than a normal tongue. Makes turning in tight spots a little less nerve racking.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I would advise that you look at things like this rather than a name brand.
All good advice thus far.
I'll add LED lighting all-around, brakes on both axles, and an unfinished interior. I always regretted getting suckered into a melamine interior. It just makes adding things more difficult.
