Hi All,

I've read a couple threads through of people putting on a hitch for launching their seadoo or a small trailer around the yard. Some say it's no problem, others recommend buying something more suited to the task..

My follow up question is this;
Has anyone heard of or tried a very small trailer for overland type excursions? Similar to the pictures below.
I have interest in camping along some back lakes I've been able to access around here, and would need more space than the bed will allow.
I expect one could build a small open trailer to carry coolers and batteries, possibly a roof top tent mounted to it, for 500-600lbs. This would be under 100lbs tongue weight.
Goes without saying that clutch management will be key with added weight, any low speed will need to have constant speed, and avoiding hard launches.
What's the YXZ Talk consensus?

I don't think towing anything is a good idea. My primary concern would be with braking. If you were going down a steep grade with a trailer, I suspect you would have a difficult time stopping in an emergency.
