Had this for six months now, and thought I'd better do the right thing and chime in after using it...I learned a few things when building it: First, expect to replace the 1 7/8" coupler with a 2" coupler (HF carries these) because nobody has a 1 7/8 ball on their hitch and 2" balls are pretty much the standard. I used a short length of steel pipe inside the tongue and threaded the bolts through them so I could tighten the receiver without deforming the tongue. Leave the nuts loose slightly until almost done. Some parts may seem like they do not align, but they can be persuaded into place if the nuts and bolts are a little loose. I tightened mine after folding if, so I could see that everything was square. A squared trailer makes all the difference in towing.Buy wire loom for the light cabling. Shrink tube the connections using marine-grade shrink tubing (with the adhesive inside - HF also carries this). Make sure you have good metal to metal contact on the grounding screw AND the bolts that attach the hinges to the frame. If they are painted - even a little - wire-brush them clean.Use some Rustoleum spray paint before assembly. I disassembled my trailer and repainted after it turned pink from sun fade.If folding the trailer, consider that the bolts are hard to get to unless you crawl underneath or do not have a deck on the trailer. If putting on a deck, replace the bolts on top of the trailer (the deck will rest on them instead of the steel frame if you don't) with longer versions, drill through the deck, and attach the deck through the frame with the longer bolts. You can use stove bolts for a lower profile, and even countersink them a bit for a near-zero profile. That is critical if folding the trailer, otherwise it doesn't fold all the way. Loctite all nuts.Replace the casters with better quality, same-sized casters available from HF of your local big-box hardware store. Or consider not folding it and leave the casters off altogether.YOU MUST pull the axle seal and bearings out of the hubs, clean them COMPLETELY, and repack with good grease. Lots and lots of good grease. I mean that. I found all kinds of manufacturing debris inside, and whatever was in there wasn't grease. More like wax. This isn't difficult to do. I STRONGLY SUGGEST that you order a replacement set of bearings and seals before doing this in case you bung something up. You will likely need the spares anyway somewhere down the road, so get them before it becomes a necessity. Call HF customer service and order them - took 4 days and about a Jackson to get spares.Many people over tighten the axle crown nut, mistaking the directions for torquing the wheel nuts. The wheel nuts get torqued to 90 ft-lbs. The axle nut should be just finger-tight. If you torque the axle nut to 90 lbs, you will torch the bearings before you get around the block.MAKE SURE you get the MCO certificate when you buy - it should be handed to you by the cashier or taped to the box...but you cannot register the trailer without one.Get a spare tire and wheel from HF. Tires never go flat in your driveway. Also carry a spare set of bearings and maybe even a spare hub (available from HF for cheap) if planning a longer trip, as these cannot be found anywhere else and will save you a lot of trouble and time if something fails. I suggest that for any trailer I use, actually. A spare hub packed with bearings and grease, ready to go, is about a 30 minute swapout by the side of the road, if needed. I have about 4400 miles on this in 6 months, carrying loads from 400 to about 1200 lbs. Not a single hiccup or issue (except for the pink paint).

Structure of the trailer seem to be solid. Assembly was easy. The one problem with the trailer was the hubs. Lug plate was not welded to the hub straight so the tires wobbled. Instead of going to Harbor Freight or haul-Master to get new ones and ending up the two or one defect or maybe both good which could take weeks to get, I went to a locate trailer outlet and picked two USA made hubs of cast iron that were the same size. I would recommend this trailer but remember it is not made in the USA and the quality control seems to be lacing.

A great bargain; some limitations
By BT in AZ
from Phoenix area
About Me Thrifty
My grandfather had a guideline... "Make sure your trailer is worth at least 1/5 of what you are planning to haul." I follow that guideline. I have not been disappointed by this trailer yet.Some folks who commented have a legitimate gripe (missing parts, misaligned parts) that seem to be fairly easy to resolve. Many of the others seem to want thousand clam performance out of a trailer less than one third the cost. It is my opinion that they are buying the wrong tool for the task.I needed something to haul stuff around maybe 3-4 times a year... yard trash, tree limbs, maybe a washer and dryer. Perhaps some topsoil and a few trees from the local nursery. A sofa from the store. Maybe some drywall for my next project. The lawnmower to the shop. A couple cords of firewood (thus eliminating the $75 delivery charge). Nothing majestic, nothing huge - just something larger than the trunk of a car or the back of the van. That said, this is the perfect solution at a bargain price.Frankly, if you expect the least expensive trailer on the market to haul your prized Harley around, you may have the wrong idea. This MIGHT get the job done, MIGHT be the right tool... and some folks have had great feedback on doing just that. But if you trust you bike (or other toy) to the least-expensive solution; well...that's your choice.Mine was fairly easy to assemble. Use a square to make sure everything is square before tightening bolts. Check for bent parts before assembly and call HF for replacements. Use some Loctite on ALL the nuts (not the super-duty, but the medium hold). Use 3/8 plywood if you plan to fold this if you want it to be fully folded. Buy 3 cans of Rustoleum (Regal Red gloss) if you don't want the sun to bleach it pink - take an hour and paint the parts before assembly. MAKE SURE you repack the bearings with quality grease before driving - this is not difficult. Buy a spare wheel/tire assembly at your local HF store. Order a set of spare bearings and seals from HF for when you need them. Scrape the paint to bare metal when installing the grounding screws to the frame if you want your lights to work.None of this is hard to do. Frankly, none of it is unexpected work to do if assembling something yourself. Anyone who drives ANY trailer without repacking bearings is just asking for trouble. Anyone who expects perfection from a trailer that costs less than half a car payment... well...A great trailer for the price. Perfect for me and my occasional use. A simple process to assemble. Plan ahead for problems (as you should for any product) and buy an extra set of the wear parts - like bearings - before you need them (they were cheap).

Bought this trailer 10 years ago. Moved from North Dakota to Pennsylvania to Massachusetts to New Hampshire with it. Hauled tons of stuff. Was worried about the bolt together frame so after final assembly i welded all the joints. Solid as a rock. One time, after not preforming maintenance on the wheel bearings for a while, I decided to haul a full yard of top soil. WAY over the recommended capacity. Smoked the bearings but made it home. Ordered a new axle and bearings from HF for $12. Still going strong. Use it weekly to go to the dump.

Nice little trailer

About Me Weekend Warrior
I know enough to get me in trouble with various projects. I took this one on to move some furniture from KY to IL. It assembled nicely. Road perfectly at 75mph. The wood and floor bolts cost about the same as the trailer, as did registering it in Illinois.

Owner for two years - Works GREAT!
By Michigan Buckeye
from Clarkston, MI
Storage was an issue and this folds up nicely and stays in the garage. I use it to pick up building materials, Logs, firewood and furniture. I sheeted it with 3/4" plywood and made sidewalls that lock together. Remember the load capacity and the trailer will serve you well. For the price this can not be beat. I use it mostly local but have hauled it 300 miles away. This is not a workhorse trailer for grunt loads but works great for the person who does not have a truck but occasionally needs to haul stuff.
Great for small hauls!!
from Baton Rouge, La
First thing, I'm a female and I put the trailer together with ease. When it got down to the lighting, I had a little trouble with the ground. The only way I could get the lights working right was to ground the wires in the back of the trailer near the rear lights and it worked. I added 3/4" plywood for the bottom and I made some side rails. The trailer hauls great, it's very sturdy and I enjoyed putting it together.

Cheaper than a used trailer
from Shady Valley, TN
About Me Casual Driver, Mechanic
The trailer assembles fairly easily. Have a square handy to true it before tightening down the hardware.The bag of nuts was missing from the box, but my local Harbor Freight sent some out to me 2nd day FedEx.Took me one morning to assemble the frame (haven't added decking yet) I used the wiring that came with it, I haven't tested the lights for issues yet. (Towing laws are pretty relaxed in my area) You will want to be very careful of the wires when folding the trailer. Creative routing and some wire loom/protector should help.I was looking for a used trailer for similar purposes, and this one was cheaper. It may not be as rugged as the others, but for picking up furniture and the occasional building materials its great. Adding plywood decking helps stiffen the frame considerably.It tows very well behind my small sedan (BMW 325xi).The finish of the paint doesn't look like it will hold up too well, so I may add some undercoating or similar. The frame is wet painted, not powder coated like some of the other brands.The folding feature is handy, but what they don't tell you as that there are 4 bolts you are supposed to install when it is in "use mode". These 4 bolts aren't all that easy to get to, so folding it up isn't something you want to be doing daily. The pins in the tongue do allow you to tilt the bed for loading without any issues.All in all, you can't beat it for the money. If you have the weekly flyer its under $300 even after taxes.
Worth every penny

About Me Casual Driver, Truck Enthusiast
I've had this trailer for 7 years, and I still use it to this day. I've used it from moving mattresses to hauling my 500LB motorcycle, and hauling up to the dump. hardly could tell I was even pulling it. Simple design and common sense to install. Will need slight rust work, and repaint, but for 7 years old still holds up.
