Could not find any info about highway/speed limitations. Is trailer o.k. for "long distance" highway travel?
Thanks.

It's says DOT approved. I wouldn't take any trailer with 12 inch wheels over 65mph.

I pull my 4x6 with 4.8x12 75 all the time. Out of the 5 trailers I own, it is the most used but is also the only one that I can pull with my car/van. All my others are larger and require my truck to pull.

I don't have this specific one but a similar. Yes it is safe for long highway trips. I use mine to move motorcycles, lawn equipment, building supplies, etc with my Camry, Rav4, or Caravan.

Watch out for the vehicle tow rating. This will not have trailer brakes and if you load it to capacity and pull behind something like a Rav4 or Camry, you will be in for longer stopping distances and a strain on the transmission. Anytime you pull a trailer like this with a smaller vehicle, make sure you have your over drive turned off. Also I would think twice if your vehicle has a CVT transmission. I also would not tow with a compact car or a hybrid. My 2.4l Camry that ran on propane towed the little trailer like a dream and I towed 500# motorcycles frequently on long trips.

There are two big factors when pulling a trailer. Weight and wind resistance. I removed the rear fold up gate off of my trailer. I only put it on when needed. This gate in upright position is a massive wind drag that your car will feel and your MPG will also feel. So if you haul something like a refrigerator, that is a massive wind sail and even though you are well withing the weight rating of the tow vehicle, your transmission will stain as if you have a very heavy load. If you use it a lot on a smaller vehicle, a separate transmission cooler is a good idea. Common sense goes a long way when towing with a trailer.

So much better than the flimsy crap sold at harbor freight. Also you shouldn't have any problems with these wheels at highway speed, but if it were my trailer I would re grease them and install bearing buddies.

I wondered about this my car has cvt and I pulled a small trailer with it. Only think I did was switch my transmission to manual. Do you think that is safer? Or am I still hurting my transmission?

Does this need a separate license plate and pay separated property tax?

it depends state by state. some states are a real pain in the ass, some don't require anything for a trailer this small.
california requires an easy inspection and they give you plates that only need to be paid every 5 years.

its gonna depend on how much weight you are carrying and how you are driving more than anything. another factor is the maker of your CVT tranny, i hear that nissan trannies are garbage but toyota ones hold up very well.

I think I didn't pull over 1000 lbs. it is a 2014 Toyota Corolla it seemed to have handled it okay.
