It is a 1975 R90S meticulously restored by Rhyder with parts-finding help from Bob Henig. The bike is still for sale. Maybe this year's bonus...

Hi sgtbill, and nice to "kind of" meet you! I had a series of 60's and 70's Triumphs back in those days. A current friend who owned BMW bikes says if he ever gets back into it that he will buy a Basecamp to haul it off for adventure rides.

Hi All,

Thank you for the replies!

We have two Aprilia Tuono motorcycles. Wet weight is about 450 lbs each.
Our utility trailer is 6' wide, and both bikes fit nicely.

We have a 2013 Ford F150 Double Cab with V-8, so we can put a lot of gear in the truck.

It sounds like the basecamp is a possibility, if my husband and I get super organized (maybe?).

For the BC owners, what is the actual inside width we would have for the bikes? We would need a full 6 feet.

After reading all your responses, it sounds like a sensible thing is a non-Airstream trailer. Sad, but true for now.... "Dear Airstream, Please make a trailer that is not too long and can handle two street/sport-type motorcycles. "

It's also not too state park friendly due to its length. If you can locate one, a third are in commercial usage and need work to revert one to its ORIGINAL layout.
Yes, this elusive silver unicorn is what you seek-
It can haul 2 Harley full dressers!
Look for Zackybilly's PanAmerica- Why? Why Not? thread.
Also, look at the 2009 PanAmerica sales brochure online.
Awesome, but rare trailer-
I would love to own one.

The PanAmerica would haul a quad bike, but not a side by side-

Sara, if you are considering an all aluminum
trailer, you could consider a Featherlite SURV. A toyhauler that is made to carry vehicles. Mine carries an OHV & 2 dual sport motos + 2 electric bikes & can sleep 6. 6,000 lb payload makes this possible. It has plenty of tie down pads, too.
Featherlites trailers are aluminum, have rivets, & don't need a sheet metal steel frame.

It certainly has the design and the room for the bikes, so if you could carry some of your gear in the tow vehicle it could work.

Just a side thought, if you really like the base camp, and both bikes will fit, a stronger axle can be ordered and installed. A new axle might run you $1200-1500.

One other concern would be if the frame could handle the increased weight. If it's out of spec the belly pan can be dropped, and the frame could be beefed up.

I have a Basecamp and it will not haul two bikes, not wide enough inside and their are no other toy hauler Airstreams.

hypergirl -- just back from a camping trip, and want to correct something I posted earlier. I was picturing smaller bikes than what you have, and was probably wrong when I said your bikes would fit in a Basecamp.

The interior body width at the widest point is 72", but that is reduced by the seats when folded up. The weight is also an issue.

Eddie Bauer? Doubtful.
PanAmerica? Most definitely.

Why not just get a dual bike hitch helper (Motorcycle Carrier Hitch Helper) and then whatever trailer you want?
