Well,,,,,Since I Traded off my Utility Trailer I have been wanting to come up with an Idea for my Rig that would allow me to haul more than 1 bike without standing them up....I also didnt want to pull a little trailer or pay the Reg. anymore or Buy another one....So I came up with this simple little Idea...

Fits into the Receiver of my Truck and sits about even with the bed...with the Tail Gate down It adds Six Feet for an overall length of 12'.....I think it will work out just Fine for what I need and I dont have to have another Trailer in the drive way....:yes: Best of all....I have 300 Bucks in it and I can do Posted Speeds for Cars NOT pullin a Trailer:laugh:

I've seen those before, that is a great solution. Do you use ramps off the back or just lift the bikes up?

I'll have to take a picture of our platform we have when I get home tonight :) Kinda similar to MWKE's...but more like a dirtbike ramp on the back of a truck...not elevated like MWKE's....Nick made it from all steel and welded it :) Pretttty nifty I might add...

Bot I can't fit them sideways. I would have to have them perched over the rails. I though about standing one or two up. It there any reason why standing them on end would hurt them? I was going to do this with the two stroke.

Good thinkin' MWKE, watch the swing on that thing, it's pretty long.

Thanks,,,,

A few of you have mentioned the swing and to watch it......Im not sure what Im supposed to watch though....It follows the truck through the turns...Its not gonna Swing out....Now backing up,,,,,That would be different.....LOL.....

I used to have something similar to this but it was a Single Wheeled Tent Trailer....OLD SCHOOL!!!! It was Basically an Extension of the Truck....Overall about 8 feet behind the truck and was Stationary behind me....When I backed it up it used to screw with my head....Me being a Truck Driver I wanted to Correct the Trailer....But you didnt have to....It went wherever the Truck did....LMAO!!!! If you would like to see it.....Buy the Book...READY TO ROLL.....Im in there with the Trailer....:wink:

Or,,,,,I might be able to go through my Archives if you are interested...:laugh:

There is probably close to 9ft of lenght behind the rear wheels, when you turn the truck pivots on the rear wheels, so every thing behind the rear wheels swings the other way. It's usually not an issue unless you are in a tight spot. I have hit a car with the ass end of a large box van that way in down-town Seattle.

how does it stay upright?

Well,,,,This is a 1958 Heilite...So back then there were real bumpers....On my previous post you will notice the Front of the Trailer has two hitches....Well those Connected to the Receivers that were Clamped onto the Bumper...Little 1" Balls...Since back when I had this thing I was pulling it with a 91 Exploder...I had to make this hitch in order for it to work.....But When Camping....There are 4 Stabilizer Bars that come down out of each corner to hold it up....That 1 wheel Actually does a 360 Degree turn...

Here are some more of my old Baby....

Oh yeah,,,,,I was so ANAL back then....I saved the original Tire:biggrin: That is is in the Picture.....LMAO!!!!

      I have a 2000 Honda trx90 I got from a buddy for free he said it needed a carb so I put his old carb back on it to try to get something out of it and it does not have any Spark. I already replaced the ignition coil I don't know much about four wheelers but I am a technician so I do know my way around a motor any electrical help would be wonderful or specs I don't have the best digital multimeter either.

      Yamaha Australia has announced it will discontinue selling Utility ATVs due to new Australian government legislation that requires the mandatory fitment of so-called Operator Protective Devices (OPDs), YMA will not sell utility ATVs after the government compliance deadline of 11 October 2021.
      “The decision to make the fitment of OPDs compulsory is disappointing. The ruling has forced us to withdraw utility ATVs from the Australian market because as a manufacturer we are not willing to gamble with our customers lives by bolting untested devices onto our specifically engineered and designed ATVs,” explains YMA Director Brad Ryan.
      As the market leader in this segment, Yamaha recognises that utility ATVs are an important part of farm operations and will comply with stage one of the new consumer legislation. This includes testing and the fitment of warning labels by Oct 2020. This will ensure that Yamaha ATVs remain available until October 2021.
      After this date customers will not be able to purchase a new Yamaha utility ATV in Australia – but sport and youth models will continue to be available. This is because new sport and fun ATVs do not need to be fitted with OPDs. In addition, side-by-side vehicles (SSVs) are not affected by this ruling, so YMA will support our utility ATV dealers and ease the transition from ATV to AG bike and SSV business.
      “Fortunately, our utility ATV customers can transition to our equally capable lineup of AG bikes and expanding SSV range,” adds YMA Director Brad Ryan.
      Customer safety has always been our priority. YMA has provided market leading rider training and promoted proven safety methods. YMA also helped develop the Shark ATV helmet which is the only fully certified farm safe ATV helmet available. YMA feels so strongly about customer safety that purchasers of new Yamaha utility vehicles will receive a free Shark farm safe helmet valued at $250 while stocks last.
      YMA is also fully committed to customer care via a national dealer network that will continue to service ATVs and with the supply of parts and accessories into the future.

      It’s kind of ATV related question as I need new trailer tires to tow my 4 wheeler. 
      Does anybody have any experience with loadstar 12” trailer tires ? 
      There is not to many choices for trailer tires here in Ontario and I was wandering if somebody can recommend me something.

      Looking for any quad rider groups that are interested in being a part of a Monster Truck show at the New York State Fair in Syracuse on Sunday September 2 2012. Basically it involves 2 teams of quad racers competing at scheduled times during the monster truck show.

      I need to know what my options may be for a problem with my truck. I was replacing the thermostat and the freakin' bolt for the housing broke off. I drilled the broken bolt and tried to use an EZ out. Well the freakin' EZ out broke inside the broken bolt. I am stuck:mad: Talked to a mechanic about it, but they didn't seem interested in helping me and never called back. The truck it all tore apart in my garage. Front grill off, radiator out, thermostat housing removed. Can this be fixed or am I SOL. I can't get out riding till I get this fixed and wife says I am starting to get cranky.

      These are some UTVs (named Shrunkettes) my Dad sold as a distributor back in the early 80's. They received a lot of attention but they didn't sell very well. I think the base model was approx $3500. The Deluxe model $6500. No wonder they didn't sell!!! Even though today's UTV's go for approx $14-16k.
      My Dad had one base model and two Deluxe for display. They were neat little all terrain vehicles. The base model ripped!!! Too bad they were before their time and so damn expensive back in the day.
      The Company went belly up and they are no more. I made the PDF from the last known brochure.
