Hahaha yeah they are sketchy as fuck for sure. But I live in a 600 sq foot apartment with a 20x20 foot patio which is 1/3 dirt lining a pad of concrete. So I don't have much space to store anything once you factor in the moto-shed taking up a solid 7 feet of it.
Hell, my kitchen cabinets and laundry cabinet are filled with tools and spare bike parts.
But, I did consider a trailer at one point. Ultimately it would be more handy but not until I can convince the landlord to rent me one of the garages that are empty space.
Stock my XTerra is well suited to tow and haul stuff, but I am in the process of piecing together a lift setup for more recreational endeavors lol. There are disadvantages to those hitch carriers though. I am planning to relocate my spare to a rear mounted carrier. I'm running 265 tires right now but my next set will be bigger (280). So if I go the moto carrier route, it will have to be adjustible to extend out further... Which is even sketchier hahaha. But for now I like the idea of something compact that I don't need to tag, and technically doesn't bind me to a 55 mile an hour speed limit on the highways. The added bonus of parking flexibility is also cool.
So I'm still up in the air about it.
Besides, boyfriend has a good size trailer that we use during track days, so this would most likely be used primarily for hauling the XT out to the hills.
