Why are so many motorcycle trailers in Canada?
What’s the difference between a motorcycle trailer and a regular trailer?
It’s a common question.
While trailers are made for a specific purpose, trailers are also commonly used for a variety of purposes.
The term trailer can also be used to describe many other products.
For example, you may hear the term trailer used to refer to a certain kind of car, truck or truck bed.
You may also hear it used to define a product that has wheels that sit on rails or a frame that slides up and down.
There are thousands of different trailers on the road today, many of them being used for several different purposes.
But the term is often used incorrectly, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission of Canada.
It’s the consumer protection agency that’s looking into a number of complaints that have come to light about trailers.
For its latest annual report, the agency said it’s investigating more than 100 complaints about trailers and found that the term “trailer” is often misused.
Consumers are often confused between a trailer and an actual motorcycle, says Janice Bagnall, the CPSC’s consumer affairs director.
Bagnell says trailers are designed to be used for recreational use and the most common types of trailer use are recreational riding, which includes riding a motorcycle, snowmobiles or scooters.
They’re also often used as a transportation system, she says.
Bignall says trailers can also contain components that can cause fire or serious injury, like tires and chains.
“It’s very important that people understand what they’re buying,” she says, adding that consumers need to know what they are buying when they use trailers.
Consumers need to understand what trailers are, how to properly use them, and when they’re needed, says Bagnamp.
Consumer complaints against trailers and related products can be reported online at consumerreports.ca, by phone at 1-800-387-8277, by mail at Consumer Affairs Canada, or through the website of the Canadian Tire Centre, a division of Tire Rack.
Consumers can also file complaints directly with the Consumer Products Safety Commission at 1 (800) 775-0403.

But consumer complaints also come from businesses.
For some people, it’s the first time they’ve used a trailer, says Stephanie Dufour, the president and chief executive officer of Bagnap.
“They think, ‘Oh, this is what a trailer is,'” she says of her clients.
“And they feel like they’re not in control of what’s going on.”
In fact, she believes some people are confused about the difference.
“There are trailers that have the wrong part, which may cause it to explode or they may break,” she said.
Dufours said consumers are also often confused about what a motorcycle is and how it is regulated.
While motorcycles are generally considered recreational vehicles, there are rules and restrictions around motorcycles that are similar to those for trailers, she adds.
“The rules on motorcycles, the rules for trailers are quite similar,” she explains.
“Motorcycles have to follow a certain set of rules, and they have to be registered.
They also have to carry their insurance.”
That means a motorcycle must be insured, must be equipped with a trailer hitch and can only be driven by a person who has an insurance policy.
Bicycles can be used as transportation systems, she said, adding, “If you’re riding a bike, you need to wear a helmet.”
What about the impact on the environment?
“It all comes down to the way we use our tools and our materials,” Dufout said.
“We need to be responsible about what we’re putting in our environment, and we need to take care of it.”
