I use a 4'X8' from Harbor Freight for hauling firewood and/or my motorcycle.TPascal said:Hi,
I'm wondering what kind of utility type trailers people are pulling behind their Elements? I've checked out one like the "SportPod" and "SportTote" on the web and they look alright, but I"m just wondering what other options there are.
I'm glad to have seen your post. I was 99% sure that the Element would have no problems towing this weight (given that the max load capacity is 1500lbs) . I'll be towing a tent trailer this summer and when the numbers didn't fit, the nervousness kicked in. Thanks for the reassurance.BriBoy01 said:I regularly tow a pop up camper that runs around 1500lbs and up to 1700lbs wheb packed for a VERY long trip. I also tow my jet ski to the lake at least once a week and it weighs in around 1400lbs. I live in the mountains in WV and have had no trouble towing either and never felt like I was in danger with them otherwise I wouldnt do it. I am very comfortable with towing a trailer because I have done it so often for so long, but I think if your new to trailering perhaps you should start out with something smaller. The key is to remember your towing and keep a LONG following distance and stay alert.
Hi Joel,jml said:I'm looking for a trailer for occasional use. The lowest price I have come across are assemble yourself products from Harbor Freight:
Anyone have experience or thoughts on these?
2 Boxes and they fit in the E if you put the rear seats up. The assembly is easy but it may take you a few hours. Lots of bolts and some wiring.benny429 said:How big is the box for the Harbour Freight trailers?
Will I need to borrow a pickup?
Maybe I could assemble it in the store's parking lot and tow it home?
Thanks, I plan on getting one. I like the Harbor Freight store, mostly cheap tools but I always go home with something.Budman said:2 Boxes and they fit in the E if you put the rear seats up. The assembly is easy but it may take you a few hours. Lots of bolts and some wiring.
