It was the use of the word "crap" that made your comment sound worse than it was meant. The smilies are so small on my PC ! cannot see what they are.
I'll explain why I have a trailer on the bike.
My wife has osteoarthritis and for her to crawl in and out of a tiny tent is a no go. It just wouldn't be realistic to go touring.
The tent I carry on the trailer is 6m x 4m with a 2m headroom.
Inside the trailer is a full size orthopaedic air bed, along with our pillows from home, quilt, two chairs, table and all the other stuff needed for camping.
My bike is 1.2 meters wide, the trailer is 1m wide. Filtering is not a problem, if the bike goes through, the trailer will follow.
On UK motorways, I ride at just over 65, in France just under 90.
In the twisties, my wife will quite often remind me I am towing, it's quite easy to forget it's back there.
With 130Nm of torque the trailer makes little difference on performance.
Once on site, we camp in luxury for bikers.
Sadly, camping and long 300 mile days on the bike are too much for my wife now, which is why I'm converting a trailer to still be able to take the bike abroad with me.
For the last 10 years, we've adapted and had the best of both worlds, long may it continue.
It's amazing what you can squeeze into such a small space.
I can't add years to my life but I can add life to my years
