    Default Anyone haul 2 RTLs or F3Ls? Utility or Cargo trailers?

    Planning on a trip from Texas to California to ride PC1 south to north into BC in August. Typically we ride wherever we have gone before - SD, Montana and east coast to Boston but this year we are trailering the bikes will save us a full day to and from to get more riding days up the West Coast.

    Comments and pics of both bikes loaded on what size trailer would be appreciated. I know I can both bikes on a 7x18 or 7x20 but does anyone have pics and experience loading on a 16 utility or enclosed?

    Tried the tape in the driveway method but real world experience would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Not sure a 16 foot trailer would work. We use a 7x18 v-nose enclosed trailer to transport our two F3Ls. It gives us a little bit of room so I'm not worried about them rubbing on anything. We use straps on four locations on each bike and they don't move at all.

    Our 6' by 12' Big Tex 35SA utility trailer works great behind my 2007 Chevy Avalanche. I made mods to accommodate the 2014 RTL.

    Is your enclosed trailer 18' + the V nose or including the V nose?

    Also wondering if anyone has loaded 2 Spyders atop a tilting car hauler.

    How were you able to load both before the bed tilts back to its horizontal position?

    Ours is 18 feet with the v nose included in the length. We back them in so that the trunk of the second one is over the first ones nose.

    I use a 7x14 open utility trailer for our 2 RT's. Drive the first one on with the nose in one of the corners, then slide the rear to the opposite side. Then back the 2nd one on with the rear up along side the first, at the opposite angle. Works great

    Do you remove the windshield for the backed on RTL because of the wind?
