Never used or seen one, but Id think you could get a 5x8 trailer for the same price or less. And more room and piece of mind...

Re: Has anyone ever tried towing with this?

I would think that putting 100+ pounds on the tounge would be worse than exceeding the tow capacity a bit with a well balanced, slightly weight foward trailer. What kind of tow vehicle are we talking about?

I would be concerned about potholes, especially in a curve with now weight on the bike, it would be bouncing all over the place !!

$535 vs. $659 for this:

I'd take the trailer and save on the rear wheel wear.
