Designed with sports and enduro bikes in mind, it is good for off-road riders and has no problems with holding your bike stable over bumpy roads. This carrier can be a bit of a challenge to carry on your own, and assembly can be bit a confusing as the instructions are rather ambiguous; it’s a good thing all the bolts are the same size.
This motorcycle carrier arrives in kit form and takes 30-45 minutes to assemble and fix to the back of your vehicle. It can support a load up to 600lb in weight and has a 79” carrier track that is 8” in width. There is also a 79” long loading ramp which has a raised adjustable wheel stop that acts like a stabilising wheel chock which owner’s say makes loading and unloading a bike on your own relatively easy.

Why Buy A Trailer?
If you think about it, a trailer makes a lot of sense. You might be heading off on holiday with your family, pets and baggage included. It certainly wouldn’t be feasible to pack everyone and everything on a few motorcycles and hit the road. With a trailer, you can drive with your family in the car and your motorcycle can tag along silently behind you – there’s no need to sacrifice your leisurely riding time or your family’s comfort.
Trailers are also an ideal solution for things like transporting more than one bike at a time. Off-road enthusiasts often transport their bikes to the start of off-road trails and a trailer makes this so easy to do. A double or triple trailer like the Trinity MT3 means you can share the costs with friends and load the bikes together.
This encourages shared transportation to the starting point and definitely adds to the experience of enjoying the value of community and fellowship with other motorcycle fans. Although trailers are a convenient method of transportation, there are potential risk’s involved that you should be aware of so make sure your safety checks are in place.
As you can see, other options are available on the market depending on your requirements. Regarding larger trailers, the Trinity MT3 motorcycle trailer is our top choice for carrying more than one motorcycle. Its multi-purpose features – it can even carry an ATV when the rails are removed – make it an attractive piece of equipment that is sturdy, strong and easy to use. We’ve covered a few different options in our guide to finding the best trailers for transporting motorcycles.
