Trailer in a bag

Who has one? Do you like it? How much did you pay for it? If I understand correctly, you can get one of these for less than half of retail if you buy it directly from the manufacturer.

Any helpful comments are appreciated.

TIA

I was approached a few years ago to be a dealer. IMO they're junk.
My 2 cents YMMV.

Are these safe to use on the hwy? Looks like something you would only use on city streets (short distances).

The novelty of this trailer is that you can disassemble it without any tools in minutes, and store it in a bag. Seems like a great option for those of us who like to put our cars/bikes in the garage and dont have a place for a trailer.

Can you elaborate? Low grade materials? Poor fit (assembly)?

The company claims these can be used for both long and short distances, high and low speeds. All the info I got was on the website.

All of the above. The stability of the one I tested wasn't the world greatest either.

Did you test the one made by the original manufacturer, or was it a copy-cat/knock-off? I wonder if that would even make a difference.

Thanks for the heads-up

i have, however, seen some nice folding trailers. not jetsons style, out-of-a-breifcase, folding. but it basicly folded up to where it sits upright, and uses a very small footprint in the garage. i cant remember the name of them, i bet someone here does

$2000...sheesh!

So basically a trailer is either going to cost me serious dough, or garage space....but my cars like the garage.

you can get a foldup trailer from northern tools or harbor freight as long as you use good flooring it will last. My trailer is a converted sailboat(i think it was a sunfish?) trailer with a stainless treadplate bed
