What You Can Haul On A Double-Wide Motorcycle Trailer

Posted on

When you hear "double-wide motorcycle trailer," you probably imagine a trailer that is able to take two motorcycles anywhere you want to haul them. While that is certainly true, you are missing out on all of the potential such a trailer provides. In fact, you might even miss out on the fact that this trailer can haul all of the following safely and securely. 

A Motorcycle with a Sidecar

Yep, these vehicles are still out there. If you are lucky enough to find and purchase one, you definitely need something that can accommodate the odd shape and weight of the bike with the sidecar. It will not fit on a standard, single-wide motorcycle trailer because the sidecar makes the vehicle too wide and too bulky. You need the double-wide to manage it. 

Two Touring Bikes

Touring motorcycles are the ones that are double-wide themselves and have extra cargo trunks on both sides. They are luxury motorcycles onto themselves, and they need as much extra room as they can get if and when you secure them to a trailer to haul them across the country. The wider these bikes are, the more trailer room you are going to need. 

Motorcycle Trikes

You may have seen these behemoths. Two wheels in back and one up front, or two wheels up front and one in the back; either way they are trikes for adults. Their very awkward styling does not fit on most single-wide trailers without a lot of creative maneuvering, but they fit perfectly by themselves on a double-wide. 

ATVs and UTVs

ATVs definitely fit on a double-wide. The very wide tires of these vehicles requires a lot of room, and their length is really more than the flatbed of your pickup truck can handle. As for UTVs, if you get the standard UTV without the extended cab or extended flatbed cargo space, you can fit it onto a double-wide no problem. If you do have a UTV with extended cab or extended cargo flatbed, you are going to need to invest in a UTV trailer instead. 


If you are all about the snow and love your snowmobiles, you typically get a snowmobile trailer. However, in a pinch, a double-wide motorcycle trailer will do just fine. You will need to figure out how to get the sled onto the trailer with its ski feet, but then it should work out great from there. You may or may not be able to get two snowmobiles onto the trailer, depending on the size, make and model of each snowmobile.
