    "SE"


    SUPERB STYLE AND DURABILITY

    With the Escapade SE trailer, we ushered in a brand new idea - design a trailer with one vehicle in mind, while maintaining a style that looks beautiful behind any vehicle. The SE is the perfect accessory for your GL1500 Goldwing. The sleek lines, the taillights, running lights and sidemarker lights that are identical to the bike's, the recessed chrome body trim, the artful two-tone paint scheme, all make it obvious that the trailer was born to ride behind the Goldwing.

    CHASSIS

    Escapade Trailer is the only manufacturer that combines the body and frame of the trailer to make a single unit. Our steel T-Chassis is integrated into the trailer body which lowers the trailer's center of gravity and ensures stable performance in all riding situations. This gives the trailer a smooth, flat surface over which air can travel unobstructed and also creates longitudinal and latitudinal, greatly enhancing the cargo deck's strength.

    SUSPENSION

    The Escapade Trailer's legendary handling is the product of a brilliantly engineered suspension system. Our trailers incorporate an air shock system with an independent trailing swing arm design. The shocks have been designed for us by the industry leader - Progressive Suspension, Inc. The special damping cartridge gives superior damping even when the trailer is towed empty, meaning no bounce under every condition. These Progressive air shocks are used in all models except the Eclipse which uses a Progressive coil over spring shock.

    TRACKING

    Escapade Trailer's superb tracking is due in part to its United States Department of Transportation approved 12-inch wheel and 4.80 x 12" tubeless tire. The larger than average wheels and tires have a more positive gyroscopic effect when turning at highway speeds. The increased width has more tread to road surface contact and grips the road to eliminate the swaying tendencies of thinner tires. And because it is a standard automotive size, it is easily replaced even in those out-of-way rural areas. (Standard equipment is painted white wheel. Chrome wheels are available as an option)

    BODY AND FINISH

    Our bodies are hand made and custom finished at our factory. Our in-house fiberglass and paint departments insure the highest degree of quality control and the color match capability is unsurpassed. Bodies are painted using top of the line urethane paints and clears, with a 2-3 part paint process and 3 clear coats. For GL1800 colors, we use the same paints and clears supplied to Honda. Bodies are wet sanded and then polished in a two-step process to achieve an amazing paint finish.

    LIGHTING

    Greater visibility means greater safety. Escapade Trailer exceeds the trailer light standards set by the United States Department of Transportation. All lighting is connected to the bike's power supply with a substantial wiring harness that is firmly secured inside the trailer. There is no external wiring except at the tongue connection. For even more visibility, request the spoiler with L.E.D. brake light.

    STORAGE CAPACITY

    Spaciousness that can't be beat. With an Escapade you will get over 25 cu. Ft of storage space, including an integrated spare tire compartment and utility storage areas that are designed to maintain a flat surface on the trailer deck (LE, SE and Elite models).
