Jeannie, welcome to the FGRV forum family. I had to look up pictures of what you have, as I was not familiar with that brand. What is the weight of your trailer, and what is the tow limit of a Goldwing?
Happy Camping
Dave & Paula

Most, (all?) motorcycles are not rated to tow anything. 500 lbs is considered by some as a good limit.

Jeannie, welcome! Don't let the weight police deter you. We're glad to have a MyPod owner here... I think you're the first. How many camping trips have you taken with it?

I would really love to hear your experiences with your MyPod!! I had considered one of these last year, but ultimately decided it was too small. But I really love the design and everything. Let us know!!

Hey there. Just joined the forum. I recently purchased a mypod maxx and I also pull it with my Honda Goldwing Trike. Great camper and it causes lots of accidents as I go down the highway with people gawking at it.

Very nice rig you have there. The bike and pod match up nicely in size, it appears. Did you happen to keep track of your fuel economy, with and without the trailer? It would make a very interesting addition to our m.p.g. table (linked to in this thread): Tow Vehicle & Trailer combos - POST INFO

Hey Mike. thanks. No, I did not track mileage impact as this was a local camping trip and our maiden voyage with the MyPod in tow. Like a test run overnight camping adventure. We learned that the MyPod towed better with the battery disconnected and in the back inside of the trailer. We learned that we need a heater and electric blanket when it gets below 30 degrees. My previous teardrop had used structured insulated panels for its construction and only needed a candle to heat it up however the MyPod construction being fiberglass and lightweight aluminum frame needs more to heat it in the winter. Learning experience. Will let you know how it goes on a longer trip.

You probably need the battery up front to activate the trailer brakes, you are using the trailer brakes? Also there is a 30 amp cord shown for campsites, this will allow the use of an electric heater and blanket. So you will need hook ups since you do not have propane.
