Escapade Elite (2001-10 Gold Wing)
The Escapade Elite cargo trailer is the most popular cargo trailer for the Honda Goldwing GL-1800 (2001-2010 models) for a lot of reasons. Its looks, perfect color-matched finish, and performance are just a few. The Elite, like all Escapade trailers has features that make them favored by so many riders.
Unique integrated chassis design—trailer body and frame are molded together for lower center of gravity, increased rigidity and smoother airflow.
Shocks designed by Progressive suspension—a special damping cartridge offers superior damping, even when the trailer is towed empty.
Larger than average wheels—increased width makes more contact with the road and larger wheel diameter creates larger gyroscopic effect which help eliminate swaying tendencies. Tires are also standard size 4.80 x 12" wheels that can be easily replaced.
Escapade trailer bodies are hand-made and custom finished at the factory. Each trailer body is painted with top-of-the-line urethane paints and clear coats with a 2-3 part paint process and 3 clear coats. For GL-1800 colors, Escapade uses the exact same paints and clears supplied to Honda.
All Escapade trailers exceed the lighting requirements set by the U.S. Dept of Transportation. All lighting is connected to the bike's power supply. An optional spoiler with integrated brake light offers even greater visibility.
