Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

This folding trailer only takes up 24" x 63" of floor space when folded, so it can be stored just about anywhere, but unfolded, it can handle up to 1195 lb.. Add plywood decking for a 48" x 96" bed. Hitch this folding utility trailer to a vehicle that has a 1-7/8 in. ball hitch to transport securely. ~ persian_mafia

I really like my trailer, but it took me a good 16 hours to build including the side boards. You wouldn't realize it by looking, but it's held together with about 80 bolts. Improvements I'd make:

-Repack the bearing grease. The stuff it ships with is designed to prevent rusting, not for actually driving on.
-If you want to be able to fit 4x8 sheets with sidewalls up, you can't just tac the walls to the stakes because it would make the box slightly less than 4x8 in dimension. I ended up cutting stakes into the sidewalls and inserting the walls directly into the stake pockets.
-Get some brackets to allow the sidewalls to quickly lock together so you can convert easily between walls up, and flat trailer.
-Throw the included wiring into the garbage. It will disintegrate very quickly and you'll just have to replace it very soon.
-The tongue is 1 7/8ths" which is annoying. I prefer 2".
-Attach a latch of some sort to keep it folded up. I can't tell you how many times I've dropped a side before I put a latch on there. It would mess someone up pretty good if it dropped on them.
-The casters are garbage. Replace them if you actually want to push the trailer around when folded up.

It's going to rust wherever the paint is chipped. Probably not a big deal though.
I had a folding trailer and parted with it. Really ask yourself how often you use it per year, the storage and maintenance of it, and whether its worth it compared to how incredibly cheap uhaul trailer rentals are. The nice thing about the rental is also that you get to rent the trailer appropriate to what you're moving.

A similar trailer is $15 a day: https://www.uhaul.com/Reservation...sTrailers/
In the OP details it mentioned camper trailer projects but I suggest you get 1720lb capacity version of this trailer instead. It goes on sale for $350 and a lot of people confuse the two because they are the same size. So anyone dead set on building a camper from a folding trailer that's rated up to 45mph, consider spending an extra $80.

20% coupon excluded trailer for sometimes now, this $80 off $350 is a bit more than 20% discount so that's good

Can this be stored outdoors without it getting all rusty?

Spray some "Rust-o-lum" on the frame and you should be good for a long time

Except the last time the Super Duty was posted on here seems to be in 2017?

Love this trailer have had it for years. It will rust if left outdoors. Caster wheels suck. I repacked the bearings during assembly. Otherwise it has been incredibly reliable. Tempted to buy this one as a spare lol.

I have been waiting to pull the trigger for years. Not sure why but I end up renting one at uhaul for $20 when I need it instead. Maybe I will do it this time.
