Default MOTORCYLE TRAILER CLOTH COVER

We just made a single bed MC trailer to haul one of our bikes down to Mexico for a 2 month stay.
Making ribs from steel to attach to trailer and over bike to other side.
The material we have is from a canopy - the one with the mesh look to it that the sun partially comes through. Plan on attaching by velcro
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Any home made trailer/bike cover pictures would be helpful
Thanks
Ann
We are towing with our 1990 Roadtrek which we purchased summer of 2005 - first van, first trip, etc. and toured Mexico for 2 months. Now we need a ride in Mexico without unhooking the van all the time.
Also, how the wind is going to effect the trailer/cover when going down the road

I can post a photo of what you made if you want to send me one.

I envision a mini 'covered wagon' right now. A few snaps might help hold the covering on along with the velcro.

Default MOTORCYCLE TRAILER COVER

I have thought the same thing all along
You certainly will see us coming - silver van, trailer has bright red fenders and tool box
We decided just a short time ago to make this so using what is available but will be reliable and have large tires on it.

when done will post pictures

Boat covers and pickup truck box covers are held in place with snaps and they stay on. Maybe there is a grommet type tool that could attach snaps to your fabric. The base of the snaps can be screwed to the frame and ribs of your trailer.

I like using what is available.

I haven't towed anything but often think a small trailer would be handy for long trips.

Hopefully someone with some towing experience will post some info.

Your trips sound exciting!
