Kendon Trailer Model Year Guide

Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailers Model Year VIN Designation Guide

 

Want to know what year-model your Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailer is? There’s an easy way to tell – just check your VIN. Your VIN will appear on the VIN sticker on the trailer or on your registration/title/MSO.

 

The easiest place to find your VIN is on the trailer registration paperwork that you received from your state when you registered it. If you don’t have that, or didn’t register the trailer because your state doesn’t require it, check the Certificate of Origin for a Vehicle (commonly called the MSO) that was sent with the trailer.

 

The next place to look is on the trailer itself. Look for the VIN sticker that lists the trailer’s VIN and other relevant information. It should look like this:

 

Kendon trailer VIN sticker large

 

There will also be other, smaller stickers that list just the VIN like this:

 

Kendon trailers VIN sticker small

 

Once you’ve located the VIN for your Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailer, you can easily identify the model year of your trailer.

 

In the middle of your trailer’s VIN you will find the letter A. Look for the character directly BEFORE the A. The character before the A designates the model year of your Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailer. Locate that character and use the chart below to determine your trailer’s model year.

Kendon Trike Trailer Tie-Down Method

Tie-Down Points on a Kendon Trike Trailer

You may be wondering how to secure your Harley-Davidson or conversion trike to a Kendon Trike Trailer. Your trike should have several anchor points that work quite well with the layout of our Kendon Trike Trailer. Here are some notes and options:

Four-points

Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailers require that you tie your vehicle down with four points. The rear of your Spyder should be anchored to the tie-down loops on the axle. Failure to do so will allow the rear section of the trailer to bounce and will wear out the rear section hinges prematurely. Please note that excessive wear of the hinges from failure to secure the rear section properly will void your warranty. So please, always tie down to four points, including the axle loops.

Heavy-duty ratchet tie-downsRatcheting tie-downs

Always use top-quality, ratcheting tie-downs. You can apply much more force with ratcheting tie-downs than standard tie-downs. The force is needed to produce a safe, secure ride. Pick up four quality, ratcheting tie-downs from your local motorcycle shop or try these from Kendon.

Soft ties x4Soft ties

You’ve got a really nice machine you plan to trailer. Keep it nice by using soft ties to protect you trike’s finish. Kendon sells soft ties, or you can pick them up at most shops. You should have at least four, eight is better. And you may want to have some long and some short.

Trailer anchor points

Front rail

Your Kendon Trike Trailer has a wrap-around front rail that acts not only as a wheel stop for your front wheels, but the perfect anchor for your tie-downs. The rail is built of thick tubular steel and welded strong, so feel free to use any part of the rail or uprights you need. Use your soft ties around the posts or rail, or hook the tie-down hook directly to it. Here are some examples:

Axle loops

Your Kendon Trike Trailer has a tie-down loop welded to the top of the axle right under the frame rail on each side. It is critical that you anchor the rear of the bike to these axle loops. These tie-downs will pull the rear of the bike down and stop the rear section from bouncing. Use your soft ties to loop through the axle loops.

Front Guards & Frame

Locate suitable, solid anchor locations toward the front of your trike. Protective engine guards work well, so do exposed frame rails. Loop soft ties around the anchor point to avoid paint and chrome damage.

A great way to secure the front of your Spyder is by looping through the front wheels. You can stay low in the wheel or go high, whichever you prefer. Hook the tie-down directly to the rail or use a soft tie. If you need more length, run the soft tie thought itself. If you need less length, hook the tie-down to both ends of the soft tie. Lots of options and configuration possibilities.

Loop a soft tie around the passenger grab rail just below the passenger seat. Connect your tie-down to the soft tie. Ratchet it down and you’re all set. On most machines the tie-down will sit safely just above the luggage. If you’re worried about rubbing, you can pick up tie-down covers or pads to protect your vehicle’s finish. A towel and a zip tie also work.

Delivery inspection:

  • Perform a full inspection of your new trailer BEFORE you sign for it
  • Check for damage to the packaging materials and outside of the shipment
  • If damage appears on the packaging, investigate further
  • Note all damage on the shipping company paperwork (Bill of Lading)
  • Call Kendon at 714.630.7144 if damage is present

Free Freight On Kendon Stand-Up Trailers

FREE FREIGHT ON ALL TRAILERS

Kendon free freight image

Just announced, FREE freight on all trailer orders, starting March 2017. All Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailers ordered directly from our office in Placentia, California will receive FREE standard shipping to almost any address in the continental United States.

 

If you live in a cave in Western Kentucky or on top of the Empire State Building, we may have to work something out. But if you’ve got a pretty standard delivery address, you can save a bunch of dough on freight for your Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailer.

 

Only one minor hiccup applies. If you want your Kendon trailer delivered to your door, you’ll have to pay a small, $60 fee imposed by the trucking company for the lift gate required to get the trailer from the truck to the ground. You can avoid the $60 fee if you have access to a forklift or a loading dock. Maybe you’ve got a friend with a business that can help you out in exchange for some mechanical advice or an afternoon ride. You can also avoid the fee by having the trailer delivered to the freight company’s terminal. Any way you look at it, $60 is a pretty great deal to get a trailer delivered to your door.

 

Call us at 714.630.7144 for details. Some trailers can’t be delivered to your door because they’re too big for home delivery. Call us and we’ll work it out. See below for a list of Kendon Stand-Up™ Trailers that qualify for FREE freight.

New Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Stand-Up Trailer

Our Two Wheels are Perfect for Your Three

 

Kendon Stand-Up Trailer now available for trikes, Spyders, sidecars.

 

Today powersports vehicles come in all sizes, shapes, styles, configurations, colors and even brand names we thought were long gone. If you have a traditional two-wheeled-type motorcycle, we’ve got plenty of options for you; one rail, two rails, three rails, no rails, whatever you need.

 

But until recently if you had a three-wheeled powersports vehicle you were pretty much out of luck if you wanted to own the world’s greatest space-saving Stand-Up™ trailer.

 

Introducing the brand-new Kendon Ride-Up SRL Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Stand-Up™ Trailer. The perfect solution for all your three-wheeled vehicle towing needs.

New Kendon BB307RU Ride-Up SRL Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Stand-Up Trailer

New Kendon BB307RU Ride-Up SRL Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Stand-Up Trailer

Introduced in November 2016, the new Trike/Spyder/Sidecar trailer is specifically designed to carry non-traditional motorcycles with three wheels. Several factors had to be considered when designing a trailer to carry three-wheeled vehicles:

 

Weight displacement: Traditional two-wheeled motorcycles carry their weight toward the front of the bike, which weights the tongue of the trailer when loaded. Proper tongue weight is critical to safe towing performance of any trailer. Trikes and sidecars carry their weight more toward the rear of the bike, shifting the weight off the tongue of the trailer and behind the axle. Not good for safe towing. And Can-Am Spyders are heavier in the front but have a different wheel configuration than trikes. All of this presents a challenge when designing a trailer to carry all three types of vehicles.

 

To overcome the weight distribution problem we moved the axle further back, shifting weight onto the tongue. Next we extended the front triangle section of the trailer to hold the front wheel of trikes, further shifting the weight onto the tongue. Finally we made the forward stop rail as low as safely possible and angled it forward to allow Spyders to roll further forward. The end result is a trailer that provides safe tongue weight with most three-wheeled vehicles. Check out this article on tongue weight for more information.

Kendon Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Trailer front triangle

Kendon Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Trailer front triangle

Dimensions: Despite the growing size and weight of some cruiser bikes over the last ten or so years, two-wheeled motorcycles are all roughly the same size. That makes it easy to design the size and shape of a one-rail or two-rail trailer for standard bikes. Trikes, Spyders, and sidecars are a little tricky.

 

Our goal in building the new trailer was to make a design that worked for all types of three-wheeled vehicles and was versatile enough to accommodate standard motorcycles, carts, and almost anything else someone would want to carry. So we made the deck completely flat but left the door open to add a rail and wheel chock if needed. We also made the deck as large as possible with the axle size we had while keeping the overall weight low enough for one-person Stand-Up™ operation. Then we added a front rail that covers most of the front section for plenty of tie-down anchor spots. The end result is a very versatile but user-friendly trailer for vehicles of multiple sizes and configurations.

 

Loading: Next we had to figure out how to get all those different sizes, shapes, and styles of machines onto the trailer. Historically we’ve only needed to load bikes with two wheels aligned in parallel onto our trailers. Now we needed to consider three or more wheels.

 

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Well, we had a need, so we invented. We are proud to offer Kendon’s first-ever full-length, slide-out, folding loading ramp.

New full-width, slide-out, folding loading ramp from Kendon

New full-width, slide-out, folding loading ramp from Kendon

The new full-width ramp is actually two pieces, each with two folding sections. Together the four sections make a loading ramp as wide as the rear of the trailer, accommodating any vehicle the trailer will hold. The ramp pieces are stored under the rear section of the trailer and slide in and out as needed for loading. They even feature loops designed to accept a 2-inch padlock so you can lock your ramps to the trailer to eliminate theft.

 

Kendon Quality: The last step in the process was to bake in the same quality, craftsmanship, and performance Kendon has become world-famous for. The new trailer features our tried-and-true independent torsion bar suspension for a superior ride for both your bike and your tow vehicle. Top-quality tubular steel frame construction is used throughout for strength and lightweight performance. And we cap it off with premium-grade industrial powder coating for a lasting finish.

Independent torsion bar suspension is standard equipment on all Kendon trailers

Whether you’re riding a Harley-Davidson or conversion trike, a Can-Am Spyder, a sidehack, a two-wheeler, or something in between, we’re confident the new Kendon Ride-Up SRL Trike/Spyder/Sidecar Stand-Up™ Trailer is the trailer for you. Give it a look.
