Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought this a year ago....time to review I bought this trailer a year ago and thought it was time to review it. I've been using this moderately, originally I bought it strictly to haul yard debris to the town dump a few miles away. But I've hauled quite a bit with it over the past year. It tracks behind my Dodge Dakota very well. I've been renovating a house I bought, had it full of debris, tiles well as hauled 30 sheets of 1/2 4x8 Sheetrock ( a bit over loaded but it handled it very well.) It did sway a little when I had it overloaded but that's not the trailers fault. I hauled two loads of Sheetrock a little more than 40 miles away to the job site. A full sheet won't fit inside the trailer but with the rear gate down it held the stack perfectly. I even hauled a load of debris the 40 miles in a snow storm, snow covered roads and it was fine. Not sure of how many miles are on the trailer, but it's definitely paid for itself already. You won't find a better value anywhere. It's been outside since I bought it, there are very few rust spots, mostly where the paint was scraped off from hauling, but by no means does it look like it is ready to fall apart soon. A few friends have asked me where I got it from. I did the site to store, got it in about 5 days. Assembly wasn't bad at all, I did it myself in a couple of hours. It would be better though if you had an extra set of hands to flip it over onto it's wheels after you've done the axles and tires, but you can do it yourself if you're stubborn like me. I looked at quite a few trailers, the ones that were in this price range have that open floor, unlike this one which is solid. It dumps too, but it is just as easy to just rake it or sweep it out. I am sure I'll get many more years out of this trailer. Very glad I bought it. August 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Utility Trailer Pros: All parts were there, No Damage other than some scratched Paint. Instructions are good and Straight forward. Everything fit together well. Steel is Fairly Heavy gauge, Thought it would have been thinner. All lights work well. Well designed front and rear Gates. Wheels are Silver Not white as in the photo. $899 is a lot better than $1200, as seen elsewhere. Cons: Wiring harness H pattern was assembled wrong at the factory, Had to Remove and reattach after Flipping Trailer. (2 Prong Front directional Connectors were at the rear and 3 Prong Brake/Directional connectors were at the front) First Switched front to back then had to rotate because wrong directionals were blinking! (I knew that was going to happen) Plastic Plate Mount was there, but No Hardware for mounting Plate, Not a Big deal, Thought I'd Mention. Noisy Going down Bumpy roads unloaded. Had to add a Piece of rubber with 3m tape to Tongue under tilt Pin to fill the Gap and keep it from rattling. June 19, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beware Instructions were unclear, pictures hard to decipher Fenders did not mount as instructions read and customer service when contacted said , "Sorry we are correcting that." shipped manual was different in aspects than on line and in the case of fenders neither matched the reality. also, the instructions for mounting side gates was reverse of what one has to do to make side gates work with end gates. In addition the certificate of origin /title paperwork is insufficient to get it registered. Home Depot claims they are not the seller and therefore will not provide necessary information for registering. Looks like I have to send paperwork back to Miami. July 30, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by I like the product despite the problems encountered One should be aware that the metal on the trailer is suseptable to rust from rain, snow, road moisture, etc. I would recommend investing in a few cans of black Rust-oleum spray and a can of clear spray. Spray all the leading and joined edges and any scratches and dents. Then spray the hardware with the clear. Trailer travels nicely. I am looking for wider tires. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted I did not want to settle for a landscape trailer, I wanted a solid no mesh and no too tall tailgate! I wanted small enough to pull with my Ford Ranger but able to haul a good load of lumber, gravel or dirt. This is perfect for me. I can haul pretty much anything I want! It was easy to put together. The lights worked first time. No problem to get license. I'm very satisfied with trailer. November 11, 2014
