It is easy to put together and great quality.
Comment for Amazon: The description of this product originally stated free shipping but the shipping was not free and the seller worked with Amazon to correct the issue with the product description but I still had to pay the shipping fee.
Once the trailer is assembled you will find that in order to use it, depending on your state, you may need to spend a significant amount of time and money in addition to the cost of a trailer to put it on the road.
I live in Pennsylvania and this is what I discovered:
* All kit trailers in Pennsylvania must under go an enhanced inspection at a special service station. I called several stations and this costs between $120 - $240+ and some of the inspection stations have long waiting lists. The cost according to one mechanic was mostly due to the complexity and time it takes to fill out the paperwork.
* The inspection station is required to fill out a 6 page form, take pictures of the trailer and submit these to PENNDOT. The process is more geared to inspecting motor vehicles but somehow also applies to kit trailers.
* The inspection station informed me that the fenders were not up to par in Pennsylvania and that I would need to purchase mudflaps for the wheels or find another way to extend the fenders by 7 inches. I am unable to find a reference to tell me exactly how to know this ahead of time. This was not difficult but it did take extra time and I had to purtrchase and modify mudflaps for the trailer.
* I will had to pay another $90 in fees to get the plate, title and registration for it.
* It took about 60 days for a Pennsylvania State VIN plate and license plate to arrive.
My experience is that if you live in Pennsylvania, you need to consider whether or not you are willing to wait a few months to be able to use the trailer and if you are willing to pay more for shipping, inspections and regulatory fees than the trailer actually costs.
This trailer is also small enough to move and carry by yourself. I threw some casters on the end so I can flip it up and roll it through my gate into my back yard. The downside of it being light is it bounces without much weight in it. I threw one of my toolboxes pretty far once during a test run over some bumps. If I know I'm going to be hauling something light I'll throw a few sandbags in it so things are less likely to bounce out.
