    Ifor Williams P6e - big enough for a GS?

    Apologies if wrong place but is an Ifor Williams P6e trailer big enough to fit a GS in diagonally??!! Anyone tried?? The trailer bed is 1998mm so it must be tight...would be useful to know as my search goes on given I don’t have a bike trailer!
    Cheers.

    Yip - I use my P6e, and a front wheel clamp, takes a 1200 GSA WC with 2 Transit straps down to the tie down points that I fitted, pulling the bike into the front of the trailer. Bike pulled down onto its suspension - solid. My RT WC fits in as well (not at the same time), slightly side ways.

    Sorry for raising the excitement here, my trailer is the P7e, not the P6e. Hopefully not a flurry of orders placed last night.
    Buyer - If you are interested in the tie downs and clamp I can take a photo after Stafford and send through to you. I let T12 know my mistake. He points out that the difference in length between the two is 200 mm

    Yes I can but it’s a tight squeeze .... need to use straps to compress front end or number plate rubs
