    What are the specs on the trailer as it's not showing up doing a web search? Dimensions, weight and tongue weight empty?

    can't find the spic . They were made for motorcycle. I have puled it with 2 wheels and now pull with a 2000 Goldwing trike. It doesn't even know that it is back there. If I rember right they claimed 300 lbs with 50 tongue wt. Great for one person not good for 2.

    An Internet search reveals the following:

    > All that said, these guys microlitetrailer.com used to make a teardrop trailer they called the MotoMate, which was suitable to pull behind a motorcycle or small car. It was not really wide enough for two, but could sleep one person
    > comfortably. I think it was only three feet wide inside, but it only weighed around 490 pounds. Contacting them might get more info, or even a left over one for sale. They sold for around $4K IIRC.

    > Okay, I found a page at microlite with the full specs of the Moto-Mate. It is really only 330 pounds dry weight, which is not bad at all.

    Maybe call the manufacturer to get some information.

    I fond most of the spec. wt. is 330 lbs.36x98 interior with 33 in ht. Aluminum tube const. sheet exterior, vinyl laminate wall inside, led lights, 1 7/8 ball145/12 tires. I put a screw jack on the front so it is easy to move around I also put a spare in it. I call it a pup tent on wheels. The spec claim 54 lbs. on tongue lbs. With the screw jack and what I have inside on my bath scales it went 85 lbs.

    Too much weight for too little space, for my money, behind a trike. Behind my truck, nah, could pull something good size.
