Small is a relative term. What you really need to know is the towing weight of the trailer loaded. That will determine if you have enough weight to pull it properly. Several members have done so but I am not sure of the towing weight of their set up. Do a search and you should find several threads on the subject including at least one on how to build your own trailer and how to attach a hitch correctly to the VN 750. Good luck.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

looks like this is going to turn into a winter project. gather a 900 rear fender and install that. have to figure out whether to use flat steel or tube steel to make the mounts for the receiver for the bike.

as for the trailer, ill end up welding something up to suit my own needs. i can probably do the whole project for less than they want for the trailer alone.

The 900 fender isn't needed, it was used to hide the hitch. Some one made a hitch that was easy to remove.... But I think it was on another forum...I'll look for it when I get on my computer

Just my opinion, but I feel towing a trailer behind 2 wheels is suicide, as youre removing a lot of "emergency escape" opts....I can see it on a trike, definitely, but I never would with 2 wheels, even with a big GW or Dresser...
If anything, mebbe Id opt for a specially designed sidecar to haul stuff...but again, just my own opinion.

thats funny you brought up sidecars. i knew of a old shop with a sidecar hanging as a sign, but damn looks like they are in business.
