I strongly recommend against the Harbor Freight trailers -- I have purchased two, both were junk, and nobody will work on them for the same reasons. The bearings are non-standard as are the hub sizes, much of the metal is very poor quality, the grease fittings snap off when used, etc.

The smallest cargo trailers available, the 4x6 size, have a curb weight that means even when lightly loaded they will be close to the max allowable weight for the Jettas. They are nice, but much heavier-built than needed for much of my trailering needs.

03 Jetta 5-sp Wagon 207k, running min. 2% biodiesel, Turbocharger Pros new turbo, Curt towbar, Weathertech cargo liner, Husky floor liners, Aspherical/Convex mirrors.
