Nice trailer for it's size

"Over all I'm pleased with it for my application. I was in need of a small trailer to mount a automatic clay thrower, battery that is needed to run it as well as a box to store a few box's of clay pigeon's in. The over all quality of the trailer seams to be nice, had some surface scratch's on it from shipping but the whole thing come's in 2 small box's so it's packed in them tight. But none of the scratch's where down to the metal, so that tells me the powder coating is thick on it . I also like the fact that it has 12" tire's and not something smaller that was one of the main reason's why I bought this trailer. The only complaint that I would have is the instruction manual, the picture's were not very clear on what it was talking about, but I still put it together in about an hour by my self. I did use a battery powered 1/4" impact driver so that sped up the assembly. The bolts have nylon lock nut's so they take a little time if you only use a wrench. Over all I would have no issue getting another on to just haul my four wheeler during hunting season so I wouldn't have to use my bigger trailer! And for the price I couldn't build one this cheap!!!!!!!!!!!"

Fits the Need

"Assembled trailer with NO problems. Have no electrical problems with lights if using a grounded vehicle connector, so it doesn't have to ground through the hitch. I use this trailer for my gas powered air compressor , extra air tanks, and hose reel. Perfect to pull around the farm, even if using the ATV."

"Trailer went together okay. NyLock nuts on all the bolts, didn't need to get my own as suggested in a few forums. Did have a bit of a fight mounting the right hub. The biggest frustration was electrical; just plan from the start on running ground wire to all your lights. The only place through the trailer that made ground was the right running light. Powder coat is nice, but you can't rely on the mechanical connections to breach it for grounding."

It's ok but don't expect great

"I purchased this trailer with the hope of using it for my job. I need to tow around a cart that weighs about 150lbs.
First off this trailer is a PAIN to put together. The instruction manual is almost totally useless. TAKE YOUR TIME and eventually you will figure it out. It took me about 5 hours. You also need a socket wrench and combination wrench set.
Once you get everything together it is a pretty solid and sturdy trailer. I haven't tested it up to it's rated 1200lbs but I have little doubt it can support that amount of weight.
My problem is that I don't have enough weight on it and it bounces around while I drive. I'm looking to have a 200-300lb sheet of metal installed for the deck to get more weight low and centered. Problem is that will cost about $300.
Bottom line is this is a great trailer for the money if you need it for the occasional trip to home depot but it's not really intended for daily use or speeds above 55mph and it needs a minimum of 300-400lbs on it to not bounce around."
