Anyone towing a cargo trailer?

We have a can-am spyder that we just love to ride and a 7x12 Aluma cargo trailer. Was thinking of towing it behind our 2017 3901 MB. The bike with trailer would weigh about 2500 lbs. so think would be OK with that. Anyone doing anything like this?

I tow a 2017 Polaris razor two-seater on a 10 foot Aluma trailer and it works great. Make sure you have enough weight on the tongue while not exceeding the 300 pound limit

Thanks Larry....another thing I just thought of, is it a bugger backing up to get it hitched? Looks like you have a rear camera which I would get too, but don't know if that would help me much with hitching?

I put a rear view camera on my Redwood and it made it a snap to hook up. It also comes in handy when not towing, as it gives you some rear vision for lane changes, etc. I had to go with wired, as I had trouble with wireless running continuous, but if all you are using it for is backing up to hook up, wireless would be fine.

Yes my backup camera works for hitching but as Brad said, no good for traveling down the road.

I don't know your particular situation but your Aluma is probably light enough you can walk it to your hitch and load the bike after you are all hooked up.
