BikeToberFest 2014 DAYTONA BEACH, FL bestpricetrailers.com
BikeToberFest 2014 is almost here!! We are getting ready for another great event this year here in Daytona Beach. I am sure that we are all looking forward to fall and some much needed cooler weather!
Let’s talk about hauling your bikes to the event. We get a ton of questions about what is the best trailer to carry motorcycles with ease. There are a few things to think about when hauling your prized bikes. How many bikes are you hauling? What size are the bikes? what will you be using to pull the trailer with? These are all very crucial in the choice of a trailer. There are many ways to set up a trailer to haul motorcycles. We can set up a basic cargo trailer with simply a rear ramp door and tie points for securing once loaded, or a fully loaded, completely finished out show piece of a trailer to match the tow vehicle or the bikes themselves. Most of the aesthetics are just for show and not a necessity by any means, but very nice to have. Budget is the biggest driver of features for a bike trailer, and we can find something to fit just about any reasonable budget and haul just about any combination of motorcycles. We are staffed and ready to assist in the set up of the trailer that fits your needs the best. We can get trailers that are built low and aerodynamic for saving on fuel for the trip, or full ht for standing up in comfortably even if you are 7’ tall. One thing to think about is that you will most likely be hauling the trailer for a much longer period of time than you are standing in it, unless you plan on making the trailer a work station or shop. The lower the roof ht, the less wind drag you will incur while towing, thus saving fuel. For most full dress bikes, IE Harley ultra’s or FLH models Road kings, etc.. are fairly large and require more room to load and secure than some others such as Fat boys or springer type or sport bikes. The general rule is that two bikes, if one is a full dress bike require a mininum of a 7ft wide trailer to effectively secure them without risk of damage. If you have a fully loaded bike and a sport bike, you may be able to work with a 6 wide unit, but we advise against it unless you just can’t tow anything larger. When towing two large bikes, we recommend tandem axle (2) axles with electric brakes on both to aid in the stopping of the trailer and tow vehicle much more safely. This brings up the question of brake controllers for the electric brakes. Many of the newer pickup trucks are equipped with factory brake controllers in the dash, however most tow vehicles have no way of controlling the electric brakes on the trailer. Installing the right electric brake controller will have to be done prior to pulling a trailer that is equipped with electric brakes. We have a full service shop with technicians on staff to install the proper equipment in your tow vehicle to safely stop you and your trailer. We also carry all the necessary towing accessories for hooking up your new trailer. It is very important to tow a tandem axle trailer at as close to level as possible. This will avoid uneven tire wear as well as rough towing.
We have many different styles, sizes and price ranges for bike trailers and will have plenty on hand during the upcoming event to take care of your needs. We carry many different types of wheel chocks for holding the front wheel of your motorcycle while hauling as well as straps for securing them. Our goal is the make sure you get the right trailer to haul your specific bikes not too much trailer for your tow vehicle or too little trailer for loading your bikes comfortably. Stop by and meet our staff and check out all the new inventory at 950 Ridgewood ave, Holly Hill, Fl just a short ride from the Beach, Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach or the World famous Daytona International Speedway.
