I did a 6x12 cargo and it has been great!





I put a 12v deep cycle battery in it and lights/water pump go forever. I have not charged it in a month or 2 and all worked fine, I plugged it in the other night just because it has been so long.

If you have a pick yourself salvage yard near by check there for parts. I have picked up a few items for pennies on the dollar that way.

So anyone ever thought about putting one of these out the back of their pop up or aliner?

I am really interested in possibly getting one and putting a mount like this on the front as well so I can take both me and my gf's bikes and keep the weight low enough possibly for the subaru outback xt of mine to pull it.




trying to avoid things like this that look like they have massive tongue weight with bikes on board:

otherwise id totally go with a jayco baja or one of those aliner knock off trailers by forest river with the same.

Man, I've never seen a pop up or anything small with a beefy enough frame to carry a bike on the back. And putting a bike on the front of a Subaru?

I'm just not seeing that as feasible.

Even a little toy hauler like that would be better. Yes, it probably has at least a hundred pounds on the tongue just to make it safe when not loaded, and adding even two very small bikes will probably put you over your Subaru's tongue cap, but I think you're barking up the wrong tree with that other plan...

What a completely half-assed design. I guess they're thinking "how heavy could it be?"

don't be so quick to judge....

I've heard several owners of these things that like 'em. A few of them are on here...and I hope they add their thoughts about this.

Maybe if you're towing it with a truck, I guess it doesn't matter much, being a bantam weight trailer and all. It's certainly good to be sure you're weight-forward of the trailer axle. But still...that is *really* far forward. You put a hundred pounds on that trailer, and it's already over a subaru's tongue weight limit. A taco'd be ok unless you're dropping a ginormous side-by-side on their or something.

And how many people are towing with a Subaru? That is the limiting factor, not the design of that trailer.

If you want to tow, you get a truck or SUV that can handle it. I'll throw some cars in the mix because most German cars can actually tow, and most Germans use their wagon to haul a light trailer. Subaru's just aren't made to do it.

Well, actually, what got me going in the first place was the fact that it was a teardrop at the end. Teardrops (tend to) cater to those who want to pull with a normal car, or even a ridiculous car...those who don't ascribe to the "get a truck or get out of the game" mentality.



But you're right, just because the dude's happy in a teardrop doesn't mean he has to be in a rinky dink car. Personally, I'd love it if more of the lightweight/compact/pop-up manufacturers gave us toy hauling options.

Those things are not bad, we move one for costumer with bikes on it with my outback ,tow great but he modify his so the axle can be moved forward on th fly for travel and amount of weight. when he talk to the trailer builder they say that they considered that but general public is to stupid to use the proper way it and to much liability on their end.
Semi trailers slide the axles all the time to transfer the weight.

Pretty amusing since Volkswagen USA says the official tow capacity of most of the vehicles they sell here is zero. I learned this when I was on the way to the dealer to buy a wagon. I didn't believe him, and actually called VWOA - it was true. The Toureg has a high rating, but honestly I can't remember ever seeing one with a trailer.

The two capacity of an Outback 3.0R is 3,500 lbs in the US and 4,400 lbs in the rest of the world. My 2006 has 153,000 miles on it.
