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!

Addicted to Chalkboard Paint
Irecently came across this article on Kasi Good's blog, and liked it so much,I asked if we could share it here! So here it is, a cool andfunctionalmakeover for your Lifetime Table: "I am addicted to chalkboard paint... It's true. We had the kids computer and art stuff on this hideous lifetime table. It was covered in paint, since I routinely use it for painting furniture or picture frames or whatever else I decide to slather paint on. I decided it couldn't get any worse, so I rolled on a couple coats of black chalkboard paint! Now, I may as well be honest and tell you that it's not going to last forever. I can envision one of them realizing that if they try hard enough they can scratch the paint off and that will be the end of it. But it will be fun while it lasts. EDIT: I ended up stripping off the paint so that I could...
Think Inside the Box
We love getting feedback from our customers. We have had all kinds of interesting topics sent in to us. This one was no exception. Although we cant officially promote use of our products for anything other than their intended use, I thought this one was pretty clever. Stan wrote in telling us how much he loves his Lifetime Outdoor StorageBox. Stan likes to cook meat using a smoker and needed a place to store his smoker on his deck and protect it from the elements. He devised a cleaver way to do this with his Lifetime Storage Box. First, he secured the box standing on one end. Then, he built a sliding shelf in it. Now, whenever he wants to smoke his meat he opens the door of the box and slides out the shelf. Voila, the smoker is ready to go. When he is done with it, and the smoker has cooled, he slides it back into the box sh...
Lifetime Harvest Exchange Shares Fresh Produce with Employees and Local Food Bank
If theres one thing we love at Lifetime, its food. Lets be honest here who doesnt?! So earlier this summer, employees started growing their own gardens for fresh produce, including some right here at Lifetime! But the hard work put into growing veggies isnt where all the fun is. Its in the eating. So for two months, we've been hosting our very own Farmers Market. Every Tuesday from August till September 25, Lifetime employees have been exchanging produce with each other during our Harvest Exchange. Weve seen gorgeous peppers, corn, tomatoes, lettuce, kale, and just about anything else you can imagine. The best part about this, is all the food that hasnt been picked up by employees has been donated to the local Food Bank to benefit members of our community. Often, having fresh vegetables in the home is a difficult thing, and...
