This morning a friend texted me some photos and then called me up because he was at the shop where these trailers are fabricated in Long Beach, California. The trailers are geared towards the UTV/ATV folks but the trailers seem to be light enough to be easily towed behind Subarus and other small AWD cars. One of these days I'll drive over to take a look but for now all I know is what is on the web site. In my travels I have seen a lot of folks out exploring in their UTVs so a nice but small trailer seems like a good fit for that market.

I know they're not golf carts. But it looks like they're golf carts.

Even with the bad boy rock-n-roll music.

Considering the gasoline engine, robust suspension and ground clearance it is hard to knock them for merely resembling something they are not.

otherwise this ....

.... is equal to this using that logic :mrgreen:

$5K for a folding tent on a trailer. I'd fabricate my own first. Not that it isn't cool looking, just a little spendy. A trailer that size can be had for under $500.

I understand your reaction and building something ourselves is always nice but not achievable by everyone. A Polaris Ranger UTV is around $16K which seems spendy to me but the popularity of UTV/ATVs seems to disagree with us.

Purchasing a $500 trailer with an aluminum tub, 2000 pound axle, stainless steel hardware, fold out stabilizers, etc.? Got links?

If you want a cheaper, poorly built trailer of roughly that size from Harbor Freight or Ebay, okay. How much to upgrade and outfit it?

$240 Harbor Freight

$320 gets us no axle springs, no tent, etc.

I agree, $5000 is way too much for what you get.

with it "Designed for UTV/ ATV off-road use", it is likely not road legal.
the lack of break light would be another indication.

In another forum a member there suggested used "pull behind" motorcycle trailers such as this Coleman for $300 on a local Craigslist post.

New Versatrailers are $1300-ish http://www.sporttrailer.co/PRICES%20VER ... AILERS.htm

Also on the other forum a member there built his own small trailer based on a Harbor Freight frame. His costs totaled a bit over $2,000 for materials


4x8' HF trailer $380
Replacement leaf spring mounts, stiffer springs, etc about $100 - $125;
Rims and tires $250
Add $200 for misc. stuff (cooler tray, frame reinforcements, leg stands, etc.)
Diamond plate aluminum tub from Diamond Deluxe for $900 with a locking lid
"RTT" is a Cabella's double tent-cot bolted to the lid with a custom cover made. $380
