Motorcycle Cargo Trailer – The simple how-to guide.

I love discovering free information on the web that breaks down a complex process into easy to read, manageable steps.

Like this Motorcycle Cargo Trailer made from a plastic minivan storage container, from Brian. 5 steps take you along as he makes the frame, assembles the pieces and puts it all together.

These “plans” are a generalized “how-to” for a simple, but sturdy, motorcycle cargo trailer. The ideas came from a number of sources, but in particular, from my good friend Kelly, who’s previous experience was a great help in figuring out the small stuff.”  – Brian

 

 

 

 

 

 

He does use a spring axle setup for this unit, shown below, to keep the cost down.

 

 

 

 

 

Lights, wheels, and storage compartment and you have got yourself a simple to build trailer. So he next time you want to go for a long trip, overnight haul, or just go exploring without a plan, you can bring along the gear you need to make that trip one to remember.
