Thule trailer problem - resolved

Hi, looking for some help! Iím trying to install a trailer kit for the Thule Chariot CX1. We got the ezhitch attachment kit. When installed on the left, as per instructions, the hitch cup prevents the stand from folding up disabling any ability to ride. Thought to install it on the right hand side, it would be upside down but would still pull fine, however found the hitch arm only secures to the left hand side of the trailer. Any helpful suggestions appreciated!!

For anyone who is interested, we resolved this issue by drilling the hitch arm so that the attachment tabs could be inserted upside down, therefore we can now use the trailer on the right or left.

Another option would be to get rid of the rear axle kickstand and get a mid mount one if you want a kickstand with that trailer, if I understand what you're saying.
