GO-Easy ultralight trailer/camper rides behind a motorcycle or small car

•,By C.C. Weiss

The GO was designed to be a practical, lightweight trailer, but the company decided it wasn't quite lightweight enough. The new GO-Easy trailer is a smaller, simpler trailer that weighs a fraction of the original. It can haul bikes, boats and other gear and serve as a minimalistic camping trailer.

At a mere 275 lb (125 kg) with available aluminum floor and storage box, the GO-Easy is built to work with all kinds of vehicles, both large and small. It can hitch a ride with a Toyota Prius, MINI Cooper or even a motorcycle. Whatever vehicle it's behind, the GO-Easy's lightweight structure ensures that gas mileage takes as small a hit as possible.

The GO-Easy is built on a powder-coated steel frame and rides on a torsion axle. It can carry up 325 lb (147 kg) worth of gear, including up to five bikes or four kayaks. It's a simple, skeletal frame out of the box and includes standard LED running lights, a 2-in ball coupler, a Thule Crossroad load bar system, two safety cables, and a four-wire electrical connector.
