Aluma MCTXL

I just bought a new (never towed) '08 MCTXL. I got it for $995 so I think I got a good deal. The place I bought it from is located in central California and they are closing their doors in a couple months. They have a white '08 and a a silver (year unk) MCTXL left for the same price. If you are interested, I can send you their #.

I need to get a hitch and looking for recommendations. I have a '07 Airbag and also need to know what other things I will need. Will the bushtec hitch (V2 deluxe) work?

I know there is plenty of information on this forum and need to do some research. I also know there are only 3 hitches that attach to the main frame and am only interested in these. Any recommendation would help.

Thanks
Ted

Ted Please PM me their Phone # I could use the White one. The Buschtec is one of the best, that is what I have. There are 3 levels the cheapest is just the Hitch the middle has be isolation harness (must have) and the highest includes the mud flap I think you need the mud flap but that will be argued by some. If it is the 08 Pearl White I could use the trailer.

I guess I did get a good deal

To many requests so here you go.

SOUTH VALLEY TRAILERS
831-638-9300

They are located in Hollister. Here is the add they had on Craigslist.

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/mcy/1077328554.html

The $1200 is for the trailer 1 size larger than the MCTXL. In my opinion, too big for towing behind a bike. Just tell them you are interested in the small motorcycle trailer. It is the XL.

If you decide to call, tell them Ted from Reno sent you.

I would like to have one, but can't afford it. Isn't that the way it goes? You have the money, but not the product or you have the product and not the money!

South Valley Trailers is another victim of the economy. After 15 years, their doors will close in June. They are trying to liquidate all their inventory. It's not a happy ending for them.

I talked to Southern Valley this morning. They said the MCT was $995 and the MCTXL is $1200. That it is not a bad price but I don't want to ride 4000 miles for that, if it would have been $995 I would already be on the road.

You best get packed. I was told the same and very confused. You won't believe how big the $1200 ( large) trailer is.
