The trailer weighs about 3500# I beleive so I should attach a WDH if I carry both bikes as the hitch capacity is 5000# without one.
We had the trailer before we decided to trailer the bikes so it is a tight fit. The size you are looking at should be about right.
One suggestion is to get a Condor Pit Stop chock or similar and mount it in the trailer for the 2 wheeler. It will not budge.
Great info..... more importantly, great color for the bikes. We also have Yellow GW.
Our trailer is going to be all aluminum with approx 2200#.
Tow capacity for the RV is 7500 with a 750 hitch weight limit.
Getting a v-nose trailer so we can't use a WDH, but I don't think it will be necessary.
Ride safe !
