General Handling
1. Use the driving gear that the towing vehicle
manufacturer recommends for towing.
2. Drive at moderate speeds. This will place
less strain on your tow vehicle and trailer.
Trailer instability (sway) is more likely to
occur as speed increases. Do not exceed
45 miles per hour when towing the Trailer.
EEK!

I have one of these and I use it all the time and love it . I even use it to carry my inflatable boat with a 100lb motor down to the beach . It took forever to assemble it though.

Should be fine if you attach a floor to it and strap it down well and aren't going too far. I wouldn't trust the axle for long trips across the country.

$259 is a standard sale price for it.

Not that slick. This coupon rolls around every couple of months. That's not to say it's not a good deal, it's just not all that rare or special.

Be prepared for hours of assembly time and make sure to grease the wheel bearings with a better quality grease than what it is shipped with.

It really comes down to how much time and effort you want to put into it. Not sure about other areas but around me you can find a 4x8 trailer used for 350-400 bucks, albeit non folding. By the time you get the accessories needed to really make the new trailer actually functional you are at the same price point if not more. Also, if you watch Craigslist these trailers will pop up occasionally, saving you the pain and frustration of assembly.

I've used mine to carry a 250lb KTM for over 100 plus miles at a time to and from races for 8 years no probs.

A friend had the axle bearings burn up on one of these but other than that and cheap tires that dry rot (after several years) they are a solid deal. Should be fine for the average homeowner.

I've had great luck. Bolt down the plywood and install a front wheel chock (also from HF for $12) Use lots of good straps and a canyon dancer (Google that if you dont have one buy one asap!)

I picked up a husq 650 and this survived 240 mile round trip through the desert going 80mph every now and then. Plus all the other times I've abused it.
