I have done several loads of wood inside my subaru forester (silly I know). I would love a pickup, but with a wife and a 14 month old my wife is skeptical of a truck. I am now looking at a trailer and to put a hitch on the forester to haul wood. Naturally I am trying to stay affordable. Any suggestions? I have perused penny savers and classifieds and I cannot find one that is used and worth the $$. The big box store trailers are really expensive (and well made it seems). I am considering the trailers from Harbor Freight- gotta put 'em together (some assembly? my friend spent 8 hours putting his together)- but save a lot of dollars and you need to add plywood and make your own stake sides. here are the ones I am considering: 4X8 1175 lb capacity $249: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=90154 4X8 990 lb capacity $195 http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=42709 they both come with lights, fenders, jack, ball grabber (teehee) etc. suggestions? other options? also, I assume I simply apply for a title and plates for this? I am in PA. My friend bought the first one, built it up, gave it sides, used it for 3 years and resold it for $300- not a bad deal. I have been looking at some trailers that are old, frankenstein looking things for $350.
