Question Towing capacity of 2001 PT Cruiser

Looks like only a Uhaul 5x8 Cargo trailer for the max size, but will a 2009 Victory Vegas motorcycle fit in that trailer?

Your asking us? Do you have that motorcycle? Here's the dementions of the U-Haul cargo trailer:

Capacity

* Volume: up to 208 cu. ft.
* Max load: 1,800 lbs.
* Gross vehicle weight: 2,700 lbs. max
* Empty weight: 900 lbs.

Dimensions

* Inside dimensions: 8' x 4'8" x 5'4" (LxWxH)
* Door opening: 4'0" x 4'10" (WxH)

So if you have the cycle, do some measurements yourself.

I believe my owners manual states 1000 lb with 100 pound hitch weight.

Of course have that bike and overall length would be longer than the trauler. I'm now thinking of having a shipping company ship my bike while I use the trailer for household.

How about corner to corner. That would give you probably an extra foot in length and you could still tie it up to keep it upright and safe.

Sounds like an idea and it would be nice to save that cash, as I'm unemploed. I'll lose household items that way though and have to buy them again. Dollar for dollar, shipping my bike for $650 might still be the better, instead of new furniture for same dollars.

What would be good for attaching the chock to the aluminum deck?

I've never towed anything except my PT behind a 19 ft. Penske Rent-a-truck from Maryland to Florida 9 years ago. Hopefully someone will see this post and come up with an answer for you.

Here's hoping. I lost everything so far and am still losing. My ex was unethical and had secrets of all kinds, including money, while leaving the house and I uncared for and struggling.

He was my boss,too , so hence unemployment and need to relocate. At least I'll get closer to famiy.

What about a loading ramp like this?

Edit: nevermind...you're talking about a cargo trailer, not a flat one. My bad.

No problem. My first version of this entry was more desperately asking if I could use the 5x10 instead. Can't though and did more research to see about shipping my bike instead and using all the 5x8 for furniture instead.

This might sound funny/bad, but I still need a destination in the South. I just know I can't/don't want to stay herej still no job after this long.

Out of money, almost out of time and falsley accused of being a "well maintained girl.". Others confirm "well maintained" is no compliment and I don't see how I'll get a decent job here and would rather not turn into a "well maintained girl" with sugar daddy/pimp and customers.
