My primary purpose for buying the trailer and all the goodies that go with it was for hauling stuff. I didn’t know what at the time, but it has come in handy on a couple of occasions.
So, the trailer is lowered onto the hitch and the safety chains connected.

The ball latch on the trailer is lowered to secure the trailer to the hitch.

Thought I’d take this opportunity to describe why my trailer is set up the way it is.
Let’s face it, a trailer is a pretty easy thing to steal. Especially if it’s hooked to a vehicle. Ok, sitting on the ground isn’t so difficult either. I’ve towed my share of Uhaul Tow Dollies and Car Carriers, what with moving up and down California and across the country a few times. Those trailers are really easy to acquire! At least with mine, I have the option of locking it to the car.
