Utility trailer question

Does anyone have any idea if this works well or not?

I found one about 100 miles from me for $150 but don't want to waste my money if it is useless.

Looks interesting. For $150 it's worth a shot.

Seems like it would pull the rear tires off the ground with any kind of hill

It is hinged to allow it to fold up and down to follow the contour of the road. I'm worried about it tearing itself apart with the rocking of the tray left to right with a heavy load. I had hoped someone on here would say "I had one don't waste your money" or "I have one and love it".

I may go look at it on my day off if he still has it. I can take my tiny 2000 Acura and save gas. I can just plug in the 1.25" to 2" hitch adapter then the trailer and just fold it up and bring it home if I get it. I still won't know if it works well or not until I pay for it and use it.

This seems like a tool that you would use to cart some stuff around "non extreme" terrain. I think if your are going off road on anything other than a gravel road, this might not do it.

If you want to cart soem stuff down some remote rocky terrain the Yutrax ATV trailer might be a better solution. My buddy has one of these when we go camping on the trail. It holds everything and tracks well with is articulating axels and ATV tires. Never had a problem with it.

Looks like it wouldn't do well on any kind of terrain.

Gotta add up the cost of the parts, might be a quick build from 2x4's, plywood, hinges and the wheel. Might be cool around the yard

Just by the looks of it, 2 wheels towards the outside would be much more stable than 1 wheel in the middle

It looks cool and would work for small stuff but like some others have said, I wouldn't rely on it for heavy loads over technical terrain

I wouldn't want to try it. Looks like it might mess with your hitch if you get to much weight on it and it starts to bounce up and down. I have put some weight on my hitch and while it worked at that moment I wouldn't do it again.
