Subject: Re: [E36M3] Trailer/Hitch for the M3
A cheaper alternative is the 40x48 utility trailer sold by Northern
Tools. It's a kit that sells for $189.99 with the 12" wheels. Then you
can customize the trailer to hold tires and a toolbox. I've towed one
behind a Miata for 700 miles with no problems.
Northern can be reached_at_800-533-5545 or www.northern-online.com
