The difference between a HighRider and LowRider is how the axle is mounted to the leaf spring. The springs are mounted above the axle on a HighRider whereas the springs are mounted below (or underneath) the axle on a LowRider. Refer to the height of your hitch and the height of the trailer tongue to determine which trailer is best for you. The trailer tongue should be as level as possible when attached to your vehicle. See Chart diagram here
The Space Trailer can be stored in or outdoors because of its galvanized frame, powder coated panels and UV Protectant HDPE canopy with an Aluminum frame. Outdoors we suggest a cover to keep dirt and debris off-although it won’t hurt your trailer! Uniquely, you can store your Space Trailer vertically. See our video for vertical trailer storage!
What you see on our website is what we offer. No additional trailer or accessory modifications are available. Substitutions? Sorry but there are no substitutes for the tires, wheels, axles, or anything else you may be wondering about.
The canopy is part of our brand and makes the trailer unique. Hauling bikes, kayaks, tents, and gear all depend on the canopy and the SPACE Bars. It also helps keep gear inside the box safe from Mother Nature! Each trailer is sold with a canopy, no exceptions.
The lightweight trailer frame is not designed to have a hitch installed on the back for a bike rack or anything else. We suggest a dual hitch on the vehicle’s frame if you want to haul more gear.
The 1 1/8” round space bars on the trailer were modeled after Yakima cross bars, so the Yakima products fit the best. However, any bike rack that has an adapter to attach to a round bar will work just find. Also, since the SPACE Bars can be adjusted to however close or far apart you would like, this means just about any length of rack will work.
This largely depends on what you plan on putting on top of your SPACE Bars. If you plan to put long kayaks or canoes, you will need a longer tongue. Visit the specs page for more information on dimensions.
Both are great options! All of our wheels are highway-rated to 80 MPH. There is no difference in performance between them besides size. So, if you are wanting one over the other, it is based on your personal preference! Trailers with 15” wheels will sit 2” higher than those with 13” wheels.
A 9/32” lock. It is best to get a rubber-coated lock so it doesn’t scratch up the latches.
Yes, it is possible, but you will need some additional hardware as well as another person to help you lift the canopy of the trailer while you replace them. This process will require additional drilling and installation of longer support beams on the inside of the trailer. Get the kit here
Our trailer canopies are made of UV Protectant .25” thick HDPE with an aluminum frame.
Once a year. When you first receive your trailer from us, we have already greased the wheels for you so you are set to go for your first year of adventures!
Yes, they are the same.
The axles and the fenders are different so changing after the trailer is built requires the entire axle assembly to be removed and swapped out. The 13” fenders would have to be removed and holes drilled to install the 15” fenders. It is a bit of work and obviously extra cost.
If the tires are wider than the existing 15” tire, they will rub on the side of the trailer. In addition, the fenders would have to be removed completely.
