Default Reese Backpacker Trailer

Reese Backpacker Trailer for sale. Great condition! New wheels/tires, repainted frame, etc. Owned for approximately 3 years and barely used. This thing can be pulled by just about anything. Dry weight is ~190lbs. A lot more storage room, and easier to use than the roof top storage systems! Wife and I bought it for a cross-country trip that never happened.

A typical roof top carrier has a maximum capacity of roughly 200 pounds, while the Backpacker can haul a gross load of 560 pounds. The Backpacker has a tongue weight rating of only 75 pounds (fully loaded) and gross weight rating of 750 pounds. With the clam top attached it has a capacity of 36 cubic feet. With the bottom only, the cargo capacity is 17 cubic feet. The suspension system is single-leaf spring with a working capacity of 750 pounds.

$425 - OBO ... or trades.

Is your trailer still for sale? I'm looking for a small trailer to pull with a diesel VW that I can pack 2-3 bikes (wheels removed) in it. A couple of questions: Was it stored inside/is the plastic faded?

I live in Minneapolis and am willing to drive to Lansing to pick up. I just want to make sure it's what I'm looking for.

Thanks!

I replied to your PM. Just in case others were wondering, it was/is garage stored.

Yes, it requires a permanent trailer plate. It doesn’t need to be renewed. If I remember, it was $75.

Not sure.. I've never ridden a motorcycle.

The thing is only 200 lbs and I can move it with one hand, so it probably can... depending on what you have it loaded with.

If you change your mind and don't want it, please let me know. I'm looking for a trailer for my gold wing.

thanks
