trailor came quick in 3 packages,installed it by myself in about half a day including wiring,instructions were easy except for the 1st step which was confusing for me,the part about running the taillight wiring in the channel 1st, so I skipped that and did it last which made more sense to me,mabe its just me.. I wanted a light trailor to haul my small boat behind my small car and this works great, and the price was real good also.

Great trailer for the money
We bought this trailer primarily to easily launch our 14' Zodiac inflatable. So far it has worked out perfectly. Not bad quality and only an afternoon and a six pack to assemble. The bolts are kind of a mystery but after swapping some we put in the wrong spot everything worked out fine.
We did not use the light kit because we have found that magnetic lights work out much better on many trailers because they are not dunked in the water or get stored outdoors all of the time. This way the lights almost always work when plugged in.
We added a winch as one is not included or claimed to be. We also sprayed anti-corrosion protection on the bolts, springs and stuff to try to protect it against salt water. A year from now we will see how that worked.

Well Worth The Effort
Received trailer quickly in 3 cartons light enough for me to unload from the truck by myself. All cartons arrived in good condition with no missing parts. Very happy with the quality of steel, the fit of all the parts, and the paint. I did purchase flat washers, grommets for the wiring, and a winch. I also added a center board and a couple more rollers to add support for my 14' aluminum runabout and its 25 HP outboard.
Had a minor issue with a hub dust cap, but a call to NT parts department was all it took to get it quickly and painlessly resolved. I give high marks to Northern Tool's customer service. This trailer is exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Teeny weeny trailer
Delivered with complete parts. Feels like quality steel. All self retaining nuts and bolts. Though 8" tires they have so far run without fault. Well painted. Easy to assemble.
Should have included a spare tire with U bolt and a winch or listed it as "available".

Instructions are not elaborate but adequate
Wiring diagram was poorly written, but I figured it out
Does not come with a winch or a jack - may want to purchase these
Not galvanized, so rust will eventually be an issue, particularly if using in salt water.
Overall - solid trailer, best value I could find, assemblly was not all that onerous.

Nice little trailer
I bought this trailer to haul my canoes in an easier way. I have a tall pickup truck and it was a pain to load my canoes into the factory roof rack of my truck. Me and My wife will always get hurt by loading them into the truck roof. I can fit my two canoes in the trailer, I put first my oldtown 14'7" and then my oldtown 11'9 ' inside the 14'7' and tie them to the trailer. I did not have to do any modifications to the trailer to fit my canoe; I just adjusted the bunks and tighten the bolts hard enough so it didn't move. I have a few advises for someone buying this trailer. First buy one100 pieces flat washers and 75 pieces locking washers for the assembly. About 25 feet of flexible conduit for electrical wires, rubber grummets for the frame holes where the cables are routed and better connectors. Get an electrician wire (to route the electrical cables) and pass the cables before start the general assembly, like many other reviewers had stated. There are more reviews here that give valuable details about the construction, read them all, so you are prepared beforehand. It took me around three hours to assemble and it was fun to do, I like to build things! Another thing to take into account is to call DMV and ask them if a certificate of origin will be enough for registration or if in addition you will need a bill of sale with the model Number and the VIN in it. The problem I had was that the Certificate of origin came with the manufacturer model number and a VIN. My bill of sale was an email as I bough online and it had the item number of Northern Tools, not the manufacturer model number. I called NT and they e-mail me a copy of a bill of sale containing the manufacturer model number and the VIN and that was enough for registration. The lack of hardware (washers, etc) and the problems on the registration process is the reason why I am giving 4 stars. Otherwise I would give up 5 stars. It is a sturdy nice trailed and it is well built.

Good Deal But follow reviewer recommendations
I bought to put a Laser Sailboat on. Easy assembly, but take the advice of reviewers to assemble. 1. have a electrician wire snake. 2. enlarge the holes for the side marker wires to oval or the supplied wire splice will not fit through existing hole. 3. have an air ratchet.
4. I used rubber grommets where the wires run through the frame holes. 5. buy box of washers for the bolts. 6. bolt on the safety chains to the hitch before bolting on the frame. 7. watch over tightening the front hitch bolts or you can bend the frame.
I also added tie down rings to hold the boat on.
Overall, seems great for the price.
