  • Be careful taking it down from the wall. It is heavy and awkward.
  • The trailer uses a 2" hitch ball. Confirm that your trailer hitch will fit.
  • The coupler tongue is approximately 14 inches off the ground when the trailer is level, so the base of the ball mount on your hitch should be about at this height
  • It has a tilt bed, pull the pin for easy loading.
  • Keep the lock with the trailer to keep it from running off. Keep the key in the lock when storing the trailer.
  • Loaded trailer weight should be limited to 2000 lbs.
  • Make sure that it's securely chained to the wall when you're done. It may take two people to lift it back on to it's side!
  • The electrical connector is a 4-way plug.
  • Insure the straps are well secured during transport to reduce abrasion.

Maintenance Info

Maintenance would probably be a good idea at some point. Wheel bearings could use inspection. Wheel bearings failed in May 2024. Replacement in process.



  • Put a sign on the trailer that indicates usage rules.
  • Mount the spare tire to the tongue.
