So as I realize how sketchy it is to drive my ck on the main roads I realize I do not have to many places to tool around. I know of a few decent spots but I need a trailer to get there. I was thinking I could either weld trailer myself, check craigslist, or buy one new. I would need a folding trailer as garage space is very limited.

Here is the cheapest I could find if I pick up in-store ($279.99)

How do you transport your ck?

A friend has one of those to haul his steam engine and is happy with it.

What is annual registration for a trailer in the US?

In Australia rego is $150 per annum.
So for me i rent a trailer for $15 per 24 hours when i need one + i don't have to store it, and don't have to outlay the cost of the trailer.

In Canada, the reg. on my trailer is $107 a year. If I need a bigger trailer it cost me around $65 a day.

Trailer registration varies from state to state in the USA. In Michigan where I live the cost of trailer registration is based on weight. My small car hauler trailer that weighs 800 pounds cost a one-time fee of $75 to register. The registration is good for as long as I own the trailer.

Mike have you thought about building your own trailer ? I believe you would do a good job.

Here's my HF foldable trailer. It's the one with 12" wheels, rated for 1150lbs and 55mph. I paid 270 with the coupon. Couple things to be aware of- 1) most people go 65 mph with no problems 2) you have to make slight design modifications in order to fit 4x8 sheet goods easily. 3) you have to add a sheet if ply and make the sides. 4) I upgraded the safety hooks to forged units, not the chincy HF S hooks. 5) it's kind of a pain in the ass to assemble.
There are lots of people happy with this trailer and I'm one of them. It's how I plan on transporting my kart.
Good luck-
Charlie

For those of you that don't know, Joey came to visit for a week to help me get the house in order when my daughter was getting married. During that time he put my harbor freight Cyclekart trailer together. Brian bolted the frame together and Joey built the deck and panels and fabricated the ramps and ramp holders. He also added some sweet hold down rings and straps. Thanks Brian! Nice job Joey!

Very nice.... Amazing what can be done with one of these. Might be looking fir one myself soon.

I believe mr Virgil Exner Jr used one as a basis for one of his terrific sketch/plans...
