Tandem trailer

This tandem trailer setup is only legal in some states

It was a convenient way to take my bike to the track and have a comfortable place to be while not riding

tongue length

a long tongue makes all the difference

After building quite a few trailers I always use a longer than standard tongue. Ever see a big stone truck pulling a trailer with an extra long tongue?
Both the Burro and the MC trailer are 3' longer than stock. Measuring tongue weight is also important. While testing the tandem setup I slowly increased the speeds to check for stability. Eventually going well above the speed limit briefly with a friend following and no sign of a wobble. The combined weight of the MC and it's trailer is about #600.
To often I've seen short tongue trailers or trailers with improper weight distribution, wiggling down the road.

that's funny....

"stone trucks" have long tongues for a reason...In the case of a "truck and pony" it so that the trailer box can be jacknifed out of the way of the truck box dumping its load....in the case of a "truck and transfer" it is so that the rig can be "folded" onto itself in tight quarters (truck and trailer boxes side by side facing in opposite directions...takes a real "artist" to pull/park that one off)



got nuttin' to do with tongue weight, stability or any other imagined reason

Alberta made ?

I've never seen this model, on a Datsun chassis. I''ve had 2 nice Toyo Chinooks and a Toyota mini motorhome. Do you know where /who made it ? The year ? David (Scamp 13' and Compact Jr 13') in Fresno and Sonora CA

I might have a line on someone who can tell you. On Facebook I found a county historical society that you could call and ask around. They collect all kinds of historical data. Click image for larger version
