    I am wanting to buy an Aluma 5 X 8 X 5.5 trailer to pull behind my camper so I can do both camp and ride at the same time. I am wondering if anyone has a trailer like that and how hard is to get an Ultra in it and tie it down. I can't find one any where around me to try it out. I am only 80 miles from the factory but they don't even have one. I have to stay this small to be legal in overall length.

    I don't think it will fit. Your bike is, according to HD specs, 98.6" long, or 8 ft 2.5 in.

    You really need at least a 10' to get any angle on your straps.

    The Aluma AE58M is a V nose trailer so the center measurment is over 10 ft. I would love a 10' but to long. I have to stay under 65' and a 10 puts me at 67'.

    One thing you could consider is a frame lock. Frame Lock I have one and love it. No straps required and solid as a rock.
