On the straights you forget it is there.... corners or down hill... the bumps gently remind you. Pulling with my Harley I dont notice it at all... bigger bike

Pull it behind my car or tuck... totally forget it is there.

Its great for those every other days your out on the road, or if staying at a Provincial park with showers its a great get away. Used it at Sandbanks last year, it was great. It allows the wife to pack a suitcase ... so she is happy.

She will be happier using the MH to get there and the bike as a TOAD to buzz around

Its all aircraft aluminum, with an added shield under it to improve air flow. I hate towing it my milage goes from 49 mpg to 44 mpg... its killing me

My 1983 Apollo Sceptre always looks good to onlookers, but I could see through the shine and see areas that needed some work, Mike took care of all of my concerns. Now that its back to like new, I may try some of the products that have just been discussed. Semper Fi, Dennis
You better wear your shades when looking at those wheels, they look GOOD and the coach TOO! Nice work there by a business that cares about their customers.

Here's my Cub

Here is our newly acquired 1979 Free Spirit Cub, by Holiday Rambler. It's about 18ft long. I'll share the manuals when I have a moment to scan and attach to the manuals area. It came with about an inch of manuals for everything.

I've not found much info about this thing except an advert on google books from a 1978 mag. Apparently it was considered one step above a tent trailer at the time.

Here's the link to the advert if you want a 1970's giggle. Uhmmm is that "patchwork" upholstery?

Nice set up Gank!

I also pull a trailer behind my bike, although nothin as fancy as your rig... I only use it for my "one-on-one" mini camping trips with either one of my two kids... They take it in turns to keep it fair! My wife doesnt ride on the bike so its kids & dad territory only!

I made it up myself a few years ago to satisfy the need to get all the crap off my bike and tote it behind. I had seen a lot of the goldwing guys totin' trailers behind their bikes and I got envious... I keep almost everything in the trailer. All I carry on the bike is a light magnetic tankbag to hold my Nikon DSLR and a quick grab bag with our rain gear. No more overloaded saddlebags and tote bags strapped to my cruiser!!

Its a basic roof topper with a light steel frame underneath, couldn't be simpler.


At camp...
Not quite a 30 second setup, but it works for us...

Now that is one nice set up for a camp. Looks neat, clean, and comfortable. And it all fit in that trailer, cool. I bet you get the best MPG award, too.

Thanks Thomas!

Yeah, when the kids travel with me we travel kinda heavy with some extra comforts (table & chairs etc), but when I travel with the guys on our "men only" biker camping trips, we gotta be macho, so a swiss army knife and a box of paper clips usually suffices... I daren't take the trailer on the "men only" campin trips as I'd definitely wind up filling that trailer with beer...

The kids like their comforts (and truth be told, so do I )

I built a trailer like that years ago to pull behind my GS Suzuki. My Harley Biker Neighbor loved the idea of my trailer and one day I saw him outside making a trailer for himself. And as we would guess, he used a top loading freezer for his trailer body and some Harley front wheels to roll it on. The frame was made from some heavy I beams he'd stolen from someone. When I went over to talk to him about it he proudly said he was going to fill it full of beer and ice. He was going to be the most popular Biker at the Tres Rios Harley Ralley.

Tuns out he attached the tounge to his seat and the first time he tried to turn a corner with the brakes on it dumped his butt on the pavenment. Wasn't long afterward he was seen ripping it apart and putting his Beer Cooler back in his garage where it belonged.

True Story! I swear!

Croinin069, we had a 1989 Pace Arrow, same color s as yours, but with a queen rear bed. Watch for water leaks on the front and rear cap joints with the roof. Also side windows a prone to leaks. We loved the Pace Arrow except a strainer leaked less than the RV.
