    I know that's one hell of a sell with that title...

    I built up this little trailer to do a fit a single bike, all of my track gear, and do it all while being light and compact enough to fit into any garage (its external height is 5'10").

    Essentially the build is:
    - Wells Cargo MPT581 with 12" extra height. (This has an interior height of 4'4" for easy towing but a pop top for easy loading)
    - Added plywood to front of trailer
    - Pit Bull front and rear stand carriers on the front
    - 3 Pit Bull TRS pin carriers on the front
    - Aluminum box for tire warmers, electric cables, etc
    - Holder for two gas tanks
    - Tie down specifically for generator
    - Pit Bull TRS system

    Some photos:

    Located in Fort Wayne, IN and will sell the bundle for $3000. Includes the trailer, TRS, all of the brackets and whatnot, but not the front and rear stands or the generator. If you want a generator I'd give the buyer a heck of a deal on one though.

    I know $3000 is a crazy price for a 5x8 trailer, but this is a super niche thing. The trailer and similar style pop tops are generally $4500+ new. The empty weight is about 750 lbs and can be towed by just about anything.

    This isn't the cheapest way to haul something but if you want the smallest and most effective enclosed trailer I can't imagine doing better.

    I always thought one of these would be perfect for a one bike operation. Proof positive right here. GLWS

    July bump. I'll throw in both gas cans as well as the Honda EU2000i generator for the asking price. The generator has a lot of aesthetic scuffs and gouges (it used to be used by a construction company) but has run like a champ for years.

    The bike is rad. This trailer might be radder.

    So a little bump, previous sale fell through, if anyone is interested in a rad trailer as a Christmas present to themselves let me know!

    I'm in Fort Wayne, IN but regularly go to Wisconsin in case that helps the distance for some people.

    These types of trailers are super-cool. Featherlite makes one, too, and it’s hella expensive compared to this one. This is a great deal, IMO.

    Appreciate the kind words, I love this little thing. The Featherlite version of this is indeed awesome but silly priced, I think it starts around $7000.

    Little bump, as a reminder for $3000 you get everything in this photo minus the bike:

    So that includes trailer, Pit Bull TRS, generator, gas cans, pit bull stands, etc.

    Regarding location, I'm in NE Indiana but head up to Wisconsin on a weekly basis in case that helps anyone out!

    In the first post, I missed that the top pops up. That's pretty awesome.

    Last call: Going to strip this thing out and just sell it as a normal trailer in the Spring. If you want just the shell because you've got your own setup in mind I'll let it go for $2000. This style of trailer is over $6000 new, so shoot me a message to make my wallet suffer.
