Towing?

Morning all, just a question as to how many here are towing BEHIND their RG. I as another rider I work with are considering adding a trailer for our rides as we generally do 2000-4000miles for vacation runs.

Looking at N-lines currently and while pricey are more physically purposed to suit us. Considerations?

I have a Sarasota trailer behind my RG. Made in Canada, smiths falls, just north of the end of I81. Great trailer, never know its there, just narrower than the highway pegs so if I get the bike through a narrow spot I know the trailer will make it. I have 60K kms towing it and love the space and low centre of gravity. I have not had to overload the bike in years.

I have a Compac trailer I picked up cheap and repainted top match, I love it and so do all my riding buddies, tows really well, about add wide as the bike, just give yourself a little more stopping distance, and don't overload it.
