Teardrop for my Motorcycle.

Postby Kurt (Indiana) » Sat Jun 20, 2015 10:06 am

Any ideas for making or buying a Teardrop that can pulled with a Honda Gold Wing?

Please post some ideas.

RIP VAN WINKLE weighs in at 525 pounds and has made several trips behind my 86 1200 GW. I am in serious need to pare down
so come take a test drive and if you like it $1200.00 and it is yours. Bed and all ready to camp.

Hoosiers, Teardrops, and GoldWings... OH MY!

Little did I know I would have so much in common. :)

Before I started to build my own Tear, I was thinking something for behind my 81 GL1100 would be nice. I was at a "WingDing" in Ft Wayne and "Time Out Trailers" had one of their Motorcycle sized Pop-up's there. http://www.timeout-trailers.com/timeoutcampers.html

But as far as a Teardrop goes, Maybe the Benroy styled "C2 Compact Cycle trailer" will give you some ideas.. http://news.motorbiker.org/blogs.nsf/dx/the-right-way-of-motorcycle-camping.htm

...and before you envision some clapped out old GL... here's mine I built. Saved her from the scrap yard.

Here is one of our regular group. He jumps the line from Ohio but we still like him.
