Model Owned: Pulsare 1850br

Default Proper CHawk length

I have a 2005 1850 Pulsare that came with a CHawk trailer. When I purchased it used the previous owner had reduced the lenth of the trailer by shortening the coupler arm and triangle area. I am looking to extend it back to the original length. Can someone with the same trailer please give me an overall measurement with some reference points on their trailer so I can figure how long mine should be? Even a length from coupler tip to the rear cross brace of the winch support. Thanks.

I've got same same year & model . From the first cross brace to the front of the trailer at the coupler 56" ... where the 3 frame rails come into 1 there is very little tongue / extension to the coupler . Hope that helps
