2 Harleys in a 22RR?

So I started out looking at a 19RR. Then I considered the fact that sometimes we head to Key West in February or March and it can be impossible to ride the bikes so I might need room for a friend. Nice to split the costs too. Same with trips to Sturgis and beyond. So I'm looking at the 22RR now.

Yesterday I went to a dealer to take my own measurements. Today I'm going to chalk the floor plan on my driveway and see what happens. I realize that if they do fit it will be as tight as sardines which is fine with me. But I really need to make sure they will fit. Both are Harley touring bikes... a Street Glide and an Ultra Limited.

So the questions is has anyone actually tried it? The majority of my traveling is with the wife and one bike so I don't really want to jump up to a 26RR. I elk hunt in Montana and Wyoming and longer trailers can be a problem on sharp turns on mountain roads.

I've already looked at a few threads about raising the ramp at the rear so the bikes don't bottom out going up over the top of the ramp. My bike is really low. I can fix that but just need to know that they will fit. I've asked several dealers and my answers were yes, no, and maybe. lol Forest River themselves say yes but it will be tight. But I can't afford to find out they don't fit when it's too late.

Any input at all will be greatly appreciated.

Prior to purchasing my TH I took the Harley to the dealer and loaded it to see the exact fit. I can easily walk all around a Road Glide Ultra but wouldn't want to try loading two of them.

I have not looked at the 22RR but I love the 26RR, the cargo area is really nice to hang out in. Look at the spec differences, I did when I was looking. The 26RR is less than 2 Feet longer than the 22RR, and less than 200lbs heavier dry. I don't think that 2' difference will hurt you that much on the corners because of where the axles are located, it is less than a 1' difference. The bathroom is larger in the 26RR and the layout in the cargo area I think is much better. You dont have anything on the road side of the rig, where as the 22RR you do so you are limited in width. I learned with my last trailer to not go small, if you are torn between 2, take the larger one. Also, if you are thinking about hauling 2 full dress bikes, I dont think that will work in the 22RR. You will most likely end up trailering one and riding the other... This a great place to find your answer! I am sure someone will chime in on this who has a 22RR and tried what you want to do.

I had a 2012 21RR and no way are you fitting 2 Harleys in it. My Electra Glide took up all the space in it. I don't think two Sporters would fit either.

Similar situation. South for a few weeks each late winter/early spring. Week in WI and another for Sturgis. Having a Trike (or two) and a bike narrowed the list of Toyhaulers quickly.

Maybe try one bike facing forward and the other rearward? Or stagger one a couple of feet forward of the other to prevent the fairings banging together. Use good wheel chocks like the Condor Pit Stop to hold the bikes vertical and then put a mattress between them? FWIW, I hauled 2 Heritage softails in a 6 foot wide cargo trailer.

No way are you getting 2 HDs in a 22RR. We almost bought one, but measured at the last minute and got the 26RR instead. It's still a tight fit with a Softail Slim and a Honda ST1100. The price difference is minimal. Go for the 26RR.

I have the 25RR & we can fit an Ultra & A softtail in it. No way 2 baggers. Ours wouldn't fit due to cabinets in the way. Don't know about a 22RR. Also agree - use a condor wheel chock.

I think your bigger limiting factor will be your CCC. the brochure lists it at 2600#. A SG & an Ultra will take up about 1800# right off the bat, that only leaves you 800# for propane, water, clothes, food, and other camping equipment. The other issue is , the bigger trailer will have LESS Cargo Capacity. Good luck in your search though.
