master cycle vs in-step trailers

so I would like to start pulling a trailer, and have looked at many kids ones to convert to a flat bed. Budget is limited.
So currently available locally ( thrift stores etc) I have found a used in-step and one called master cycle.
They both look very similar, both two kid haulers, both with spoke wheels and both with good tires, Condition of fabric is same, I wont be keeping the fabric but it helps me judge the condtion overall of trailer.
Ive never heard of master cycle trailers. The instep can be had for 40 and the master for 25.
could not find any info on the net about master cycle bike trailers

any one have any input ?

Just make sure you have good hitch to the bike.

got the instep. the master cycle was gone when I went to look again. don't like the slop in the wheels..like loose bearings...but maybe that is normal. looks like it has zero miles.tires still have nibbs on them.
yahoo...I got a trailer
if its not for me.....spring time hits...ill get my money back easy...in this small town
then again, by spring its gonna have a few more miles on it
