The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Bought this trailer just a week ago. First off, the ad says it has a capacity of 180 lbs. Don't believe that. If you go to the dealer's website, it says 88 lbs. which is more in line with other bike trailers. Price is decent though. Shipping was fast. It arrived 2 days before the earliest quoted delivery date.
The trailer is mostly assembled inside the box, you just have to put the wheels on the axles and insert the axles into the trailer. Unfortunately, everything is loose inside the box rattling around. Mine has several scratches and small dents but that doesn't really affect the usage of the product. It was also missing the cover (which may have prevented everything from touching ... or not) The dealer responded within 24 hrs and say they are sending one ASAP.
Assembly instructions are horrible. Just some really bad pictures. The assembly itself was not too bad though. Fairly simple for anyone with some mechanical skills. The snap ring pliers they include is a really poor quality one time use tool but they work. *Note to others* Don't try to put the snap ring into the groove. Just get it around the axle and push it into the groove with a flat screwdriver. This may also solve some of the issues other reviewers had with getting all the washers in. The hitch and tongue looked like it might interfere with the kickstand but didn't after all.
Just took it for it's first test (sans cover). $131 worth of groceries from Costco (including a flat of 30 eggs that all arrived intact). As others mentioned, it bounces and rattles when empty. Not much can be done about that other than to weld or bolt a stiffener to the steel floor. It's the same sound effect they use for thunder in sound effect studios, shaking a thin sheet of steel. Lots of room inside the bag. A couple of bungees across the top secured everything for me. Getting started took some significant effort, but once rolling it was fine. Just make sure your brakes are good. Handled well behind the bike, though I did notice that the wheels are not very true or balanced. If you don't already have one, consider getting a spoke wrench and spending a little time tweaking them.
Overall, I would recommend it, but know what you're getting yourself in for. It is a cheap made in China product, but it looks like it will do the job and is 1/3 to 1/4 the price of a high quality trailer from a reputable bike or outdoor shop.
