mines only 10mtr long the trailer is 7mtr. and 7ft 6ins wide .
having driven trucks round here its usually ok.
drove skips and sewage tankers for years so know most of the awkward narrow places .
there are lots places i wouldnt take a fiver though .
i chose the mitzy as thats a narrow truck for having a nose about with . also carry m,bike in the trailer for investigating new areas.

i use a chines dax monkey bike . sold in uk as easyrider. really jincheng . had it 16 years now .
actually use it round here ,its good for country lane afternoon ride out . carries two if need be .
90cc its ok.
handle bars fold down so fits under the rear bed a treat.
i actually built the garage to take one using measurements from another camper.
went to see a 1500cc drifter and ended up buying the biggest and smallest bikes in the showroom.
get as much fun with the little one as the big one . but different ride outs .

I would need to put some kind of rack on the back as I don't have a garage. It's one of the things I wish the builder would of planned in.

well self build is the way.
mind i only converted mine it was an empty trailer.
i knew what i wanted before the conversion .
the single cab vw didnt quite fit my wants but it worked for awhile .
now seven seater double cab id ideal plus makes a sleeper cab if i get off locally without the trailer.
