That's a big trailer for this car... but doable. I have the 40"x48" Harbor Freight trailer that I use for autocrossing.Ok one question, I have covered all the bases as far as hitch installation goes and I located a trailer at Harbor Freight. My question. What is a real safe speed to pull the trailer at? Harbor Freight says max speed is 55 mph.. Id like to go at least the speed limit. Any suggestions? here is what Harbor Freight offers.
600 Lb. Capacity 78" Tag-Along Trailer
600 lb. load capacity for automotive and 200 lb. maximum capacity for motorcycle use
16.6 cubic feet of storage space
Heavy duty 4.80 x 8" tires

Self-assisted hydraulic struts for easy lid opening
Lockable shell includes two keys and has two additional side latches
Includes coupler, safety chain, wiring harness, trailer light kit, and license plate holder
55 MPH maximum towing speed
You'll need to upgrade to the 12" tires certainly, that will help with bearing life. Also, flush out all of the grease they have in the wheels bearings and do yourself a *huge* favor and pack them yourself with good quality grease. No clue what is in there, and my wheel bearing looked like they were packed with vasoline. You'll also want to remember to regrease them every year.
When you put the trailer together I'd used a little blue locktite and different nuts. Yes, the kits come with nylon locking nuts, and yes they work... but I check mine before every event to make sure things aren't loose. If you're not going to do that... get some nuts from the hardware store and locktite them, there's lots of vibration going on in that trailer as you haul it around.
