FREE SHIPPING - Ironton Utility Trailer Kit with 40in. x 48in. Bed - 1060-Lb. Capacity
The only hard part is squaring the frame and arm , parts slip while tightening . Built a wood box on my frame to keep and transport woodworking tools .

Bought this to carry my dirt bike, also use it for backwoods camping. Shipping was fast and assembly was simple, I like the black finish compared to the same trailer at harbor frieght, theirs are red and look cheap!

Good little trailer
I haven't had an opportunity to get it out on the road yet but it seems very sturdy and with it being so lightweight my motorcycle should have no issue pulling it.
The only complaint I have is the assembly instructions were basically useless. Although the instructions had the parts labeled, the parts themselves were not and there were a few pieces I had no idea how they assembled ... and there ought to be some hints in the instructions on how to attach the leaf springs - that was the most difficult part but after 5 hours, a lot of sweat and cursing ...it came together and it's ready to go. I would recommend this trailer for your touring motorcycle or small car - it's very handy and the price is really good.

I used the trailer to mount a smoker I built on it. With a few modification it worked perfect. I could not build one for the price

camping gear trailer
I needed a small trailer I could build a box on for camping gear and pull with my scion xb . This trailer was easy to put together but the instructions werenn't much help . I used the pic.s on northern tool to see how to put it together . It appear's to be good quality .I put 450 miles on it with my first camping trip with no problems . I pulled it with highway speeds to 75mph , it pulls straight and true . Just remember to square the frame before tightening all the bolts .

Light duty Trailer
I read reviews before putchasing this trailer. I found assembly staright forward. After bolting together and squaring, I being somewhat OCD, used a wirefeed to glue it together. The intended use is to carry about 700 lbs. So this review is a little early to make any claims. So far it appears to be good for what I want.

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.

All good, 'cept electrical...
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.
