Kwik Kamp motorcycle trailers have not been manufactured since 1999, so they are difficult to locate. The only way you’ll find one is to purchase a previously owned model that is more than 15 years old.
Searching for Kwik Kamp Motorcycle Trailers
If you want a motorcycle camping trailer and are set on this particular model, you’ll need to be prepared to do a thorough search. You may also need to be prepared to travel if you do find a Kwik Kamp unit. While you could get lucky and find one in your local area, for such a rare item it’s more likely that you’ll need to venture out of your immediate area to make a purchase.
It’s always a good idea to search websites where people post used items for sale any time you are shopping for second-hand equipment. Considering that you’re looking for an item that is quite rare, it’s probably also in your best interest to consider placing a ‘wanted’ ad in publications that are likely to be read by people looking to buy and sell motorcycle accessories.

If you’d like your message to be posted this way, contact campgrounds in the region you’ll be willing to travel to make a purchase, and ask if they have such a board. If they do, find out the best way to get a flyer to them. Chances are that they’ll tell you to either mail, email or fax details in order to have it posted. You can find motorcycle campgrounds by state at BikerCamps.com.
- Motorcycle camper dealers aren’t likely to take Kwik Kamp trade-ins (just because they are so old at this point), but they may have customers who do try to trade such models. Dealers may also have a board where they allow people to post that they are selling or looking to purchase items that the dealer doesn’t carry or won’t take on trade. As with the motorcycle campgrounds, reach out to motorcycle camper dealers in your area and let them know what you’re looking for. Ask if they can put your name on a list in case people come in looking to get rid of this type of item and see if they have a place where you could post a ‘wanted’ flyer. Start your search by identifying motorcycle dealers in the area where you’re willing to travel, then finding out which ones carry camping trailers for bikes. The dealer locator page on Motorcycle-USA.com is a good place to start.
