Consider looking into a used cargo van. I was about to buy a two rail motorcycle trailer, but found a deal on a dodge cargo van in my area for $700. I did have to replace the windshield ( $150), a cracked turn signal ( $40), and do some maintenance ( oil filter, oil, plugs, cap, wires, brake pads, turn rotors, flush radiator, total parts about $125) and BAM this thing is solid. I dont think all the maintenance I dad was necessary but I figure I might as well get used to working on the van, and want it to be in tip-top shape. So for a little over $1,000 I have a bike hauler. Figure another $200 for eye bolts, wheel chocks, ramp, plywood, etc and I got myself a very convenient track hauler that can take 2 bikes plus extra crap with ease.
Also too, I got some eye bolts that have a removable base, so I can take the eye bolts out and have a really large, perfectly flat area to haul other stuff in. For example I just helped my buddy move into a new apartment, and we took just one trip, we shoved a TON of his furniture, tv, etc into the van. Convenient!
