I'd recommend a battery isolator to reduce strain on the bike's electrical system, something like this:

What kind of trailer are you wanting to pull? A camper? A box? An open wagon? Kinda need to know what you're trying to accomplish with the trailer before we can make any suggestions on what to pull.

I picked up a M/C cargo trailer from a couple that was downsizing after retiring a few weeks ago.


Side note:
Leesville, I haven't heard that city name since college, Wampus Cats right? My best friends college roommate was from there, i just remember him as Drunk Steve.

A word to the wise- Don't ever accept the challenge of drinking an entire bottle of Malibu Rum from Drunk Steve!

Should be able to get a discount on the 3rd one there. The 2nd and 3rd ones are the older style probably hand laid fiberglass. Sturdy but going to add some weight. This is a popular type trailer guy opt for. Not as fancy but functional. If you know someone handy they can build you one pretty inexpensively. I had one mad many moons ago by a friend in Oklahoma. 1" square tubing and used some thin light weight wood type material they use in bathrooms that is somewhat water resistant. We camped at the time so it was made to use as a work top when tent was set up. Kind of depends on how much you want to spend. Check with some members here, someone may have one for sale. I can look over on the Venture site and see whats available over there.
