Hi all- just picked up an ET2 50 for my son. Has anyone used a 3 rail style dirtbike trailer to transport? The older style that tilts to load. We have 2 Rucks as well, and a short bed pickup comes up short...

Might only be able to load 2 scooters but I've seen plenty of scoots on rail trailers. We have a 2 rail trailer that we replaced the hoop chocks with Condor scooter chocks we use anytime we trailer including cannonball support.

Most three rail trailers are intended to carry either one or two bikes. The outer rails are too close together to allow three bikes.

Maybe two scoots on the trailer and one in the truck?

I used to have a three rail trailer. It was great for picking up stranded vintage mopeds on our yearly moped rallies. It easily fit three mopeds with no problem. However, when it came to transporting scooters, that was another story. Whether i was towing my my two Genuine Buddies or my Vespas, only two scoots would fit on it.
