those low profile one wheeled trailers...?

where can i find info about those?
what do you call them?

i actually wanna take a close look at one and possibly build a trailer with a similar design for a dirt bike(dual sport).....the whole idea would be to haul the mt bike and maybe some gear with this trailer behind the motorcycle...
thanks

They are B.O.B. trailers. I have no idea what (if anything) B.O.B stands for. Performance sells them here:

http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=6400

and the LBS's in Anchorage carry them as well, so I expect your shop should have one around. I have seen two kinds - one that's a "hardtail" and another that has a suspension. I don't know if the hardtail version flings all your stuff out when you hit a bump, but I suspect a bungee cord would be a nice add-on if they don't come with one. I think they come with a bright yellow duffle bag as well. I've only seen one on the roads here, but it looked pretty slick. If I was going to go car-free, I'd get one of these ASAP.

From their website ( www.bobtrailers.com/ )

"The YAK trailer is the original Beast of Burden (BOB) product."

The Ibex is the one with suspension.
