Last summer before I left for the NW Starfest I had mentioned in a conversation around my mother in law that I was planning on getting a trailer for my bike. Probably the Tag Along from Harbor Freight. I said something like the trailer and hitch would probably cost me about $500.
Well for my birthday today she enclosed 5 crisp $100 bills in my card!
Also a note that she decided to give me this gift last July. She's retired and on some sort of a fixed income. I figured it was too much and wanted to give it back. But I know how she is and she wouldn't take it. So I graciously accepted the gift.
Then I go to look up the trailer on the HF
site and couldn't find it anywhere. I called the local store and they told me about the tire recall about 4 months ago. Because of that HF took ALL trailers of of their site and removed them from store inventory. The person at the store didn't know when or if they would get trailers back in stock.
So I have 5 bills burning a hole in my pocket. The Tag Along would have been perfect for me. I don't want to spend $1500 on a trailer that I won't use that often. But I can't find anything in the price range of the Tag Along. Any ideas an economical trailer?
