First off, if you want a small light trailer. Look into trailers made for
motorcycles. They are VERY light and will work fine behind a car.
I saw (years ago) a trailer called "5th wheel". It was a trailer that
mounted to the bumper and only had one wheel. (it didn't use a hitch. I
don't know if they are still in business or not.
If you want to build one, here are 2 possibilities...
Go to a motorcycle trailer manufacturer and buy just the axle and tounge
bar. they are pretty cheap, but are VERY well built and save you lots of
time. Or, buy a cheap flatbed trailer from Harbor Freight.
Then, but the biggest cartop carrier you can find and mount it to the
trailer. This way, you can remove it and still have a flat bed trailer to
Just my 2 cents worth.

not that I'm tired of the cell phone wars but I've got another
I'm trying to find a source for an inexpensive cartop luggage carrier
box... the enclosed fiberglass boxes that perch precariously on top of
sedans and mini vans during the summer months, holding the clothes,toys,
gifts of millions while effeciently killing gas mileage as they speed
the hiways at 85 mph (talking on their cell phones) to vacation
I want to build a lightweight enclosed trailer my daughter, son-in-law and
NEW GRANDSON !!!!! can pull behind a Honda Accord on trips to Grandpa's
I'm thinking of building a lightweight frame with something like a boat
trailer axle/spring combo and attaching this lightweight carrier to it...I
see a small, lightweight, watertight, easy to maneuver and reasonably
inexpensive little trailer thing...There has got to be dozens of them
somewhere that the families have outgrown and underused ??? any
suggestions ??? is there a web want add place where you can advertise for
this group, more than any other can surely tell me "where to go" !!!!!
