    I-10 Cargo Carriers

    We're looking to go car-lite. Does anyone have experience w/I-10 cargo carriers? The thing that concerns me is the attachment to the axle. It looks a little fragile. But I like the load space and weight capacity. It'll be used almost exclusively for grocery hauling. A BOB is out of the question, pricewise. I'm posting the same query on the Utility Forum as well. Thanks in advance.

    I've seen these in use during bike moves. The quality and fit/finish of the trailer is suspect, but that hitch is plenty beefy enough to stand up to the abuse of moving a lot of cargo.

    I would ask this question on the Utility forum. They know trailers much better than most of us.

    I did. Found the same trailer on ebay for 50.00 less. They seem a little flimsy, but a good starter for grocery hauling. Thanks again.

    You can always check craigslist for kiddy trails and just pull out the seat. I know a lot of people haul their groceries that way and you know you would be getting a solid trailer.

    Yes, we've discussed going this route. Especially now that I know these trailers are available in plenty. Found several KTs on CL for reasonable prices. We're still in the decision phase. Will pull the trigger next week when the extra funds open up either way. Then selling the extra vehicle. Scarey, but exciting too.
