The Bunkhouse Facts
Bunkhouse was the first in the industry to use torsion axles on motorcycle trailers, and has since 1985. Our axles are manufactured by a company who makes axles for such companies as Airstream Travel Trailers and U-Haul Rental Trailers.
We are the first motorcycle trailer manufacture to offer electric hydraulic disc brakes for 12” wheels. Our brake system is designed for a lightweight trailer. This is not a surge brake, it is a hydraulic pump system, that is designed to stop the trailer from pushing you.
Our frame is a full 3 side perimeter design and our tongue is extra reinforced at all bends. The tongue is bolted to 1/4” brackets welded to the axle beam, this way the pull of the trailer is from the axle not just the frame. This allows us to give you a lower profile trailer with a ball height of 12 “ to 14”. Our trailer is a full 24 cu. ft. of storage, with an additional 4 cu. ft. in the travel cover. Our body is flat across the bottom with tapered walls, wider at the top, for ease of loading.
We have, for many years, made available plastic windows, standard in the dressing area. One on each side and one in the front door. All are zippered for opening and closing.
Our trailer comes standard with 3 jackstands, all are bolted to the frame and tongue. Understand with a jackstand on the tongue, it makes it easier to level a fully loaded trailer. If desired, we can install 2 additional jackstands to the frame. We do not recommend, while set up in the campsite, taking the trailer wheels of the ground, because that is part of the trailer stability. Bunkhouse has used custom laminated baseboards to support the mattress since the very first units manufactured in 1985. We have a welded frame with a 1“ foam board center, pressure laminated on both sides with a luan plastic. The same material used on expensive motor home shower stalls.
Bunkhouse has always produced their bodies. we have the experience and know how to produce a strong excellent finished body, with all stress areas supported with biaxial reinforcements.
