Rated 5 out of 5Â by CurleyQueue Incredibly Beefy Trailer
This trailer is huge, I mean like bathtub sized would be putting it mildly. Really tough construction all square tubing frame with lag bolt connections. Fat tires that look like it would be no problem to go anywhere my quad can go. Assembly was very easy and took about a half an hour.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by jason one major weak point
it's a very useful trailer but you need to keep an eye on your load. the front of the tub is only attached to the frame by 2 bolts. if your cargo weight shifts behind the wheels, it doesn't take much for those bolts to pop through the plastic and bend the frame. replacing the frame part isn't a huge issue, but it costs $60 plus $115 for shipping which is an issue. the manufacturer doesn't care how little the trailer is used or that it can fail well below rated capacity. also, the bolts require a giant philips screwdriver which i can't find anywhere (not tractor supply, HD or local hardware store) so you may have to get resourceful and hope you don't strip the heads.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tex46 As good as it gets
If anyone can manufacture a better trailer than Polar can, I would like to know about it. This is one terrific product. If I can assemble it in 30 minutes, most can do it in 20 minutes. I have filled the bed to the top with fire wood and hauled it out of my pasture. This trailer is so smooth and quiet, I barely knew I was hauling anything. The hitch probably works fine with just the pin but I would recommend getting the Polar Trailer 2 in. ball coupler kit. The employees of Polar should feel good about themselves for manufacturing such quality products.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JollyRoger Awesome ATV Trailer
I bought this Polar HD 1500 ATV trailer to haul firewood out of the woods to one of the two tracks on some property we have here in West Michigan. It worked very well for this job. The loaded trailer rolled right over logs I thought for sure would be a problem. I was able to stack what turned out to be about a quarter of a cord of hardwood (after I split it) in the trailer at a time. A full cord of wood with four trips out of the woods sounds pretty good to me. I thought about buying the metal side extensions, but I don't think I will. The wood stacked easily, and only three or four pieces rolled out here and there - even driving over logs on the way out of the woods.
One of the nice features of the dump and swivel assembly is that you can load this trailer into or onto another trailer and "break it down". You can fold the tongue so it sticks out to one side and then tip the trailer up on one wheel, securing the tongue with tie-downs. You can point the tongue under the ATV in front of it and leave the trailer level on both wheels. Very nice features I didn't think about when I made the purchase.
Assembly was straight-forward and took about 30 minutes or so. When it was together the bed looked slightly twisted down the long axis, but that didn't affect performance.
I considered one of the steel ATV trailers, and I'm glad I spent a little more for this heavy-duty product. I expect it will last for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ToddB Super strong, large capacity and easy to assemble
I almost bought the typical metal trailer you see everywhere when I stumbled across the Polar offerings. I'm so glad I chose this trailer.
It's got plenty of capacity and is really well built. Assembling it couldn't have been any easier.
So far I've used it to haul brush (stacked at least 6' over the top, tied down with a strap) into the woods and granite out of the woods.
I wasn't able to lift some of the granite high enough to get it over the sides and safely place it inside, so for the biggest pieces I had to roll them into the trailer when it was in the dump position and then struggle to lower the trailer back to level.
I've put massive rocks in it with no issues. The plastic shell is strong enough to hold anything you can lift. I had it filled with stone.
The dumping action is great. A simple lever that locks into place is real easy to open and close.
I could nit pick about a couple of issues with the bolts, (like not being galvanized), but this trailer is already making my life much easier!
I got it sooner than expected. Shipped the next day. Freight carrier requires one day for scheduling, so don't expect it on the day your shipping notice estimates. They call you and set up a date at least the day after.
