What does the trike weigh? 1500ish? Id say thats not enough capacity for something that big.

He claims the bike weight 1100 I donít have any hard numbers on that though and the payload on the trailer is around 2000

Thats not leaving alot of room for much else. Anything in the tanks goes against capacity, clothes, tools, utensils, food.....whatever else you can think of.

I have a GW trike and the weight is #1200. I have a Heartland Prowler that looks real close to that and I plan on loading mine in it. I'm not sure what the cargo bay is rated for on mine but the ramp is 2K. I don't feel there will be an issue with mine and by the way I do haul with a 1/2 ton. Good luck with toy hauler search.

The ramp on the Forest River WILL NOT hold the weight!!!
I had a 22RR with the same ramp. Said it was 1500 lb capacity.

We didn't load the bike the first year.
The first time I pulled my GL1800 (not a trike) into the trailer, the ramp cracked down the center, plus the angle of the ramp is too steep. Bike bottomed out.

Neither the dealer or Forest River would even consider repairing it under warranty.


The trailer was 1 month out of warranty.
That along with many other problems, shower doors not fitting right, all cabinet handles crooked, nothing square inside, paint faded and spotted within the first year, frame full of rust after 1 year.
