A bit of history. My own reason for buying that particular one, was my knowledge of trailers. Most all motorcycle trailers at that time were VERY short coupled things, short wheelbase between the hitch and the axle
. As a result, they were twitchy little things, handled very poorly. I knew this wheel placement would counter those problems, and it sure did, it handled like a dream!! Back in those days in the desert southwest, cruising at speeds well over 90 with this trailer was "normal" and created no handling problems whatever.
