I purchased their xl version about a month ago. I liked it better because of independent torsion axle vs leaf springs plus it has a longer tongue, 45" vs 33". It pulls well (empty wt 170lbs) and has 18 sq ft storage. For anyone looking for a trailer at a very reasonable price, I suggest checking them out.

Exclamation Piggybacker?????

Has anyone else used this trailer? The price seems low compared to to some of the other trailers. Is it one of those "You get what you pay for"??
Low price for low quality?

The weak link on all these single tongue trailers is where the tongue meets the frame. (I'm sure an engineer can tell you why, that is where they always break)

One of my ridding buddies has one that is pulled with a Honda VTX1300. He bought it because of the price. While it's not the prettiest trailer at the campground, it holds what the others do.
It does look like a painted spray can black on top of a car roof carrier and then bolted on a small flatbed frame but it works very well. He is well pleased and has passed out a handful of their cards for interested parties.

Several guys on the Delphiforums Trailer forum have them and swear by them. It does not match the LT for looks, but it is a quality product. The word frugal comes to mind.

It's a great little trailer for my modest needs.
