Cool Motorcycle Trailer Towing

Anyone here towed an enclosed trailer with a Goldwing?
I do this at times behind the pick up truck but I would like to try it with the motorhome.
I don't think that would be a huge weight issue and having the bike along would save renting a car at my stops.
If you can provide any info you may have, it would be appreciated.
Not having done this with the MH (yet) and I have concerns with what to
do should I find myself in need of backing up.
Thanks.

No different than towing a car. MH can handle it. Gas mileage will suck. If you can back up with your truck you can back up with the MH. No different.

I agree: towing will always just be towing.

I pull a 12 x 7 enclosed trailer from pa to florida every winter. with harley inside. don't even know its back there. I saw no noticeable drop in mpg. did have to get a 7" drop hitch to make it level. just check it often to make sure everything is ok in trailer. someday will have switch to towing my F 150 down when I get too old.

I agree, you should not notice it really being there and the mileage should not really change unless your trailer is taller or wider then your rig. Your trailer is drafting your rig so there is little to no wind resistance.
