Can the Multi-Sport trailer be shipped to my house? How does it ship?
Yes, it will be shipped via FedEx Ground. The trailer itself will ship in three separate boxes. The heaviest box will weigh 65lbs.
How does the trailer perform on the highways?
Very smoothly. Multi-Sport Trailers are DOT-certified for interstate speeds and are regulated by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). The trailer has custom single leaf springs that provide a soft ride for lighter weight loads. The trailer springs set the designed trailer carrying capacity at 300lbs but the extra strong frame and running gear could be used to carry twice this rated load.
As with all towing, drivers should allow for the trailer’s extra length and weight and maintain adequate clearance when changing lanes and be prepared to reduce speed to suit weather and road conditions.
How much gear can I carry on the Multi-Sport Trailer?
The Multi-Sport Trailer can carry 6 bikes or 2 bikes and 2 kayaks or a rocket box and a large canoe or combinations of these loadings that fit on the 64” crossbars. The trailer has soft springs and a heavy frame to absorb road vibration.
Is the Multi-Sport Trailer easy to assemble?
If you have performed trailer maintenance on electrical lights and wheel bearings then the assembly will be easy. However, if the experience of using a torque wrench or wire stripper would be foreign then you may want to purchased an assembled trailer or seek assistance from someone with a good understanding of basic mechanics. In either case, the assembler should follow the directions and figure on 3-5 hours for assembly.
Will all Yakima® and Thule® type accessories work with the Multi-Sport Trailer?
The Multi-Sport Trailer has 60” long 1.125” diameter crossbars. The rear crossbar can be positioned in front of the fender for a 32” spread or positioned behind the fender for a 48″ spread. The crossbars are the same configuration as roof racks and will allow for the mounting of bike racks, rocket boxes, cargo baskets, kayak stackers, rollers, and rack pads, in user customizable configurations.
How do I license my trailer with the DMV?
Most states require it to be registered. We provide you with a Mfg. Certificate of Origin and a VIN number. Take those to your Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) and you will be issued a license plate. The Certificate of Origin is located with the nameplate in the long box (4”x4”x74”)

The Trailer’s Flat-4 has 3 male pins and one female – to match the vehicle’s live Flat-4.
Can I back the trailer into the water?
