I'm planning to make an unusual trailer to tow by my motorcycle. It'll be used to haul sculpture (under 300 lbs) or two stacked 17'-long sea kayaks.
Here are the basic features:
Aluminum (I want a total weight under 150 lbs if possible)
8' long flatbed deck
Tongue will be 'retractable' from 1' to 6' long.
16" wheels (the sort used for motorcycle sidecars)
1. What are the most important issues I may have?
2. What aluminum extrusions would be best (aluminum alloy, dimensions & wall-thickness)
