    Some owners do pull a trailer ....Actually the weight of the trailer will give it better traction.....I don't trailer i have no need to....But if i'm not careful pulling out from a dead stop i will smoke the rear tire off....

    Last year at the Myrtle Beach Bike Week I saw a Slingshot towing a trailer with a Harley on it.

    I have a monkey (stuffed) that rides on the tour pak luggage rack ... he has a Harley T shirt ... when people ask me about him ... I tell them, "I'm giving him a ride ... his Harley broke down!" ... kinda the same thing ... I'm guessing with the same reaction.

    I have seen some that make one that mounts to swing arm area, and another that bolts at the top rear and then comes down to the rear to pull a trailer.

    Made me look. Looks like Bushtec makes one and you can add a fender to it.

    As does this company...

    The Bushtec looks better to me from a safety standpoint.
