Default Anybody use folding trailers?

I'm thinking about getting a folding trailer to be able to haul my ezgo around. I'd really like a 5x10 but am not finding any. Anybody use these types of trailers?


here is a link to something similar http://www.harborfreight.com/1720-lb...ler-62647.html

I have as well. Something like this for short to medium pulls. I like the knife edge tail and the hydraulic cushion assist. Now if I could just fine one that's a little more affordable.

Hey sltntexas. Yes I have owned/used them. I do not like them. The concept is good but from a practical standpoint they tend to be problematic and dangerous in my opinion.
Cart stalls/cuts off for whatever reason, brakes don't hold etc. trailer slams back down. Depending on how it is built wiring is yanked around.

Just from experience and just my opinion. I like the ones with a drop down tailgate for a ramp made from expanded metal for air flow. Just my opinion from experience.

BTW we are talking about the same thing right? A tilt trailer as in the link above?

Ok. At second glance I see the hydraulic cylinder. Don't know about those. Never had anything but basic tilt.

Sorry I have added a link. This is a type of trailer you can fold in half when you are using it so you can store it easily.

HHHMMM. No. I would never trailer a cart on anything like that. No, I have seen them. Been trailering things for 30 years. Would never put a cart on that. Just MHO.

I keep my cart on a trailer during hunting season and haul it around daily. Get a legit trailer bro. Carts are pretty heavy, and can take a toll on the loading ramp.....

5x10. Lowes, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, whatever y'all have in Texas go ahead and spend a little more. That thing at Harbor Freight is junk for what you want to do (I like Harbor Freight) it will require a lot of work to get it close to hauling a golf cart.

What you need is not that one. Just trying to help and only my opinion.

Exactly. That thing might be OK for a small riding mower, but that's about it.
