Inside Trailer
View from front
TourMAX trailer behind Harley Davidson Night Train. Look at the luggage space you have - all carried close to the ground.
Front view of TourMAX trailer behind Harley Davidson Night Train. Anywhere the bike can go the trailer can go. You don't loose your ability to filter in traffic.
Trailer stands on two detachable legs
High quality paintwork and attention to detail.
Trailer stands on two detachable legs making it VERY stable when detached from the bike - either at home or at your campsite.
High quality paintwork and attention to detail. Super bright Hella lights ensure you and your trailer are seen!
Tow Arrangement
Tow Pivots
Pivot between drawbar and tow frame has machined bushes running on a stainless steel pivot bar. Stainless pivot locks attach the frame to the tow pins. Matched locks so one key does both sides.
A small stainless steel tow pin each side is all that is fitted to bike to pull trailer. Notice electrical socket - almost invisible behind number plate (or it would have been if we had done the bracket black and not silver... )
Motorcycle trailer inner pocket
Motorcycle trailer Load Space
Inner pocket - handy to keep small items / documents in whilst traveling. Notice too the power socket into the trailer - for charging larger items. Also internal light to light trailer / pocket (Twin LED bulb - this really does light the trailer)
Helmet in trailer to gauge capacity. Note the length of items you can fit in the trailer. You can take a table and chairs with you. Intrusion for suspension and wheel has been kept as small as possible. Extra storage space at rear keeps centre of gravity nearer the wheel - away from the bike.
Motorcycle trailer Lid Lock- Closed
Motorcycle trailer Lid Lock - Open
Flush lid lock. Large button in middle is glove friendly. Custom paintwork is available.
Lock can be used locked OR unlocked - you don't need a key all the time to operate it.
Looking back at the Motorcycle trailer
Motorcycle trailer Lid hinges and gas strut
View looking back to trailer. Notice sleek lines and width less than your bike.
Gas strut to hold lid open. It won't whack you on the back of the head whilst you are loading / unloading. Trailer fully lined with 2mm thick wool / viscose felt mix to protect your load.
Motorcycle trailer Suspension Linkage
Motorcycle trailer Wheel Detail
View looking back to suspension. Notice custom made CNC machined anodised alloy hub for wheel and powder coated chassis / swing arm as standard.
Single sided swing arm can be set either way to suit your bike. Modern high speed scooter tyre on 12" alloy powder coated wheel.

Un-sprung Weight - Wheel attachment

Yes - of course it adds to the un-sprung weight of your rear wheel and as such will affect the handling - just like luggage in the picture below affects the handling...

Motorcycle Touring the HARD way

Remember the trailer is the ALTERNATIVE to the picture above - I've done both - I know which one rides better and feels safer...


Trailer Body

Single piece fibreglass molding for ultimate rigidity, lightness and strength. Purpose designed and made by a local company that also manufactures fibreglass Formula One components. Highly complex 7 part mould allows the body to be made in one piece for maximum strength and durability. The body and lid on their own weigh just 16.5Kg Flush fitting lid with internal hinges and flush glove friendly lock. Can be used locked or unlocked.


You can have it any colour you like! The base price includes any colour of your choice. If you can get your bike to us then we can colour match it to your bike or we should be able to match it from the paint code.


The chassis is a single rail steel chassis and is powder coated for longevity and to prevent corrosion. The swing arm is mounted to the chassis via two plastic bushes. The chassis is symmetrical which allows for the wheel to be mounted facing either left or right to suit your bike by changing the swing arm.


The suspension system is simple, robust and maintenance free. It uses a specially manufactured fully bonded rubber suspension unit actuated with a link arm - much like most modern sports bikes in principal.


High intensity Hella lights are used on the trailer. Although recessed the tail/brake and both indicators are visible from more than 45 degrees each side of the trailer rear - complying with all european and international lighting requirements for visibility. Additional side marker lights are available as an option should you so desire. The Lighting for the trailer also uses an intelligent control system. This means that the trailer lights are completely independent of the bikes wiring system and will not affect any indicator repeat rates, bulb failure or ABS functions and will work with the latest KTM, Ducati and BMW CAN-bus equipped systems.

Bike Fitments

Not all fitments will be suitable for every bike. We are however working hard to make our trailer available to anyone who would like one.

  • Hollow Rear Axle

Two tow pivots are attached each side of the rear axle bolt by passing a threaded rod through the centre. The rod is centred by two bushes.

  • High Level Fitment

Two tow pivots are attached each side of the bike at a higher level - picking up the chassis mounting points at the back of the bike.

  • Custom Fitment

There are some bikes that just do not lend themselves to any of the above fitments. In this case we will manufacture a custom frame specifically for that model bike.

Just remember - this is a trailer to "replace" all the panniers and kit that you would otherwise have strapped to your bike when you go touring. The true comparison is:-


BIke fully loaded with panniers, extended tank bag, top box, stuff on top of that, tail bag and bungee straps holding the other stuff. (All the weight high up) Probably partly insecure - unable to leave bike unattended


Naked bike with ALL your kit securely locked in a waterproof Mono-Trail TourMAX
(All the weight low down)
Secure - able to leave bike.


Oh, and one other thing, that tent that you really liked and the airbed you always wanted to take with you - but was all too big to fit on the bike - it's not now !!
