New Product Report
Motorcycle Pet Carrier
by Lori B. for webBikeWorld.com
I remember a long time ago
when the automobile manufacturers would give away toy models
of their new car line each fall.
My brother had dozens and he probably wishes he still had
them packed away in the attic because I'm sure they're valuable
collector's items by now.
That marketing concept is still used now and again, because
every once and a while I'll come across a toy, a model or a
miniature of some product used for a display or as an attention-getter
to attract potential buyers.
So when I first laid eyes on this Wags motorcycle pet carrier,
I thought it was actually a miniature horse trailer that was
designed for a display to maybe catch the attention of a passerby.
"Too cute" is an understatement for this little
guy -- it's not a miniature horse trailer at all (unless, that
is, you have a really, really miniature horse!) but a motorcycle
pet carrier! At least that's what I'll call it. It can
also be used as a motorcycle cargo trailer, but this version
is specifically designed as a pet carrier.
Now I'm not sure if my pampered pets would be happy back
there, but it's perfect for a motorcycle rider who can't be
without their dog or cat, or maybe their lizard, snake or maybe
even their pet parrot.
The Wags motorcycle pet carrier is not a toy -- in fact,
it has excellent quality and is extremely well made, much better,
actually, than many of the real horse trailers I've been looking
It's not inexpensive by any means, but it's available with
the same options that can be found on the big boys.
This includes things like
chrome wheels with cool-looking spinner hubcaps, stainless steel
tongue and bumper and real sliding windows with screens that open
Also included are top and side vents, a cooler (shown on the
front of the carrier in these photos) and different styles of rear
doors and more.
You can even order a custom paint job to match your bike
or -- get this -- a solar powered roof vent and fan!
The Wags motorcycle pet carrier can be custom ordered to
fit different sized pets according to the customer's needs.
The partition can either be left in place for storage for
pet food or other gear, or the entire carrier can be used as
a motorcycle cargo trailer instead.
The inside of the carrier is lined with insulation and carpeting
and the bottom is covered with 2" of foam padding. The
carpet is removable for cleaning.
The base price for the Wags motorcycle pet carrier is $3,095.00,
which may seem steep, but like I said, this thing is built to
last. Check them out at Dale Coyner's
Open Road Outfitters. Dale is also thinking about renting
both the motorcycle pet carrier and his other line of motorcycle
trailers, so if you're interested, give him a call.
By the way, we purchased a Rocket fold-up motorcycle trailer
from Dale and we'll be reporting on that soon!
