Fold-up Trailer-- Extreme Dad's Day Gift

Fold-up Trailer-- Extreme Dad's Day Gift

Fold-up Trailer-- Extreme Dad's Day Gift

For me, it's often hard to shop for dad around Father's Day. Every dad's different, and mine is especially content with what he has. As he puts it, he "gets along just fine"... which is pretty annoying when Father's Day rolls around. Lifetime Trailer Looks like MomGadget.com is out to fix this problem. The blog about gadgets and gizmos that make mom's life easier presents options for almost every type of dad and any situation. Whether you're on a budget, going in on a special gift, or if you have a little extra to spend, you should see something he'd like in their Father's Day of posts.

Included in one post is the Lifetime Fold-up Utility Trailer:

"What dad doesn’t have stuff they like to haul?  Whether it’s to haul something they just bought at Home Depot or just moving things from point A to point B. Men like to move stuff!

The Fold-Up Utility Trailer from Lifetime Products is a first of its kind product - it folds to less than half its full size in less than 90 seconds and can fit beside the car in a garage or through the gate into the backyard..."

A neighbor recently bought this trailer and offered to loan it to me for a long (2000+ miles) road trip this summer at highway speeds. Will it hold OK, can I use it with confidence? I do not want to have a problem niether with the trailer nor my friend.Thanks

Hi Joaquin,

I got with our engineering team to respond to your question. Their short answer to your question is-- absolutely! Though it's fold-able, and uses lighter parts than most trailers, the fold-up trailer is just like any other trailer in its stability and durability. Just in case, you may want to bring along a replacement tire. The fold-in-half trailer accepts a standard twelve inch trailer sized tire, or you can order a tire through Lifetime's Customer Service.

Happy trails, and best of luck to you!

This trailer is exactly what we need. What a great idea for storage purposes.

What size hitch is needed? We have three vehicles, all with half-inch hitches.

Hi,

The fold-up trailer looks like it is just what I need (and there is one available at the local Canadian Tire). But how does the axle work (i.e., lock) and will it be as durable/strong as a straight axle? Also, I notice in the picture above there are re-inforced steel bars around the outside of the trailer, but the 4x6 trailer available up here through Canadian Tire has no such reinforcement. Will a folding trailer without such bars be able to carry loads of funiture, etc.?

Thanks,

Stephen

Hey Stephen,

I consulted our engineering team and marketing manager regarding your questions, and it looks like the axle takes the load in the same manner as a regular trailer axle. It is locked in place by the horizontal jack screw and the front lock down pin. It is as durable/strong as a regular trailer. You should be able to haul anything that doesn’t weigh more than the GVW allows. All our fold-ups have reinforced sides and ramps/gates, so they should be on the model at Canadian Tire. I hope this helps you pick out your new trailer, best of luck!

Shed Project Update
Ok, for those of you following my blogs, we haven’t forgot about our shed project. It just kind of got put on the back burner with summer vacations, back-to-school etc. But, we’re ready to start tackling it again. Like I mentioned before, unfortunately, we really only have one ideal place for ashed in our backyard since we have a sloped yard and lots of trees. It will be in the back corner with fence on two sides and trees on the other. If you take a look at the pictures, you can see where we plan to put it and why it’s going to be slightly challenging. We did some measuring the other day. The space we have to work with is really only about 6’ wide before we’d have to start removing trees, which we don’t want to do. A 5’x8’ shed would fit perfectly! Of course, things are never as simple as they seem with our projects. We hav...

It’s Time to Dust off the Kayaks, It’s Summertime!
Memorial Day has past and summers had its unofficial start! As the weather heats up and the kids finish up the school year, we are all in need of a vacation. These days, taking that one big trip to Orlando or hopping on a cruise to the islands can put a big hurting on the old wallet. Many people are choosing smaller and more frequent vacations. And lets be honest, who doesnt want more vacations? I know I do. Here at Lifetime, we wonder, why cant every weekend be a vacation? Oh, but it can!! Having a few kayaks laying around for the family can make it easy, affordable and fun to stay closer to home this summer. You can head to your local lake one weekend and the next weekend do a river float. The options are endless! You wont be paying expensive entrance fees, spending hundreds of dollars on gas, or paying an arm and a leg fo...
