Harbor Freight Tag Along Trailer.

I purchased a Harbor Freight Tag Along trailer yesterday. I did all the recomended modifications to it as I assembled it. Anyone else using one of these? Where is a good place to get accessories for it? Ie... cooler basket, rear bumper etc.... I'll be painting it to match my bike next weekend. I'll post pics when I finish it up.
Thanks, Daniel.

I would think most of any accessories you would have to make yourself unless you find something close to what you want and then modify it to work. I've been looking at the small trailer that comes with the cargo carrier for $379. Don't have a hitch (yet) though.

Yea, I have some ideas of fabbing up my own cooler rack. Ive seen several for sale online averaging 250.00 I can make my own for much cheaper. Hopefully my hitch will arrive next week from Canada, once I paint the trailer I will post some pics of my setup. I did pull the rear fender off, I am slicking it out and filling the holes, "going with a sidemount tag / brakelight" the small squared off section where the original tag mount was is where I will add a plug in socket for the trailer lights. Should look pretty cool when I'm done. I don't really plan on any long ventures with the trailer other than a few beach trips "20 miles round trip" or maybe a trip or 2 to the Keys which is roughly 200 miles from my house. Here is my bike now. I just painted it last weekend "Ferrari Rosso Corsa Red" will be painting the trailer to match

Pulling a trailer sure comes in handy whenever you go somewhere. You've got plenty of room to put your schtuff.
Get some led's for it and you should be good to go.

A.. repack wheel bearings.
B.. rubber hose over leaf spring bolts
C.. remove helper leaf springs
D.. stainless hardware & stainless eye bolts inside to fasten bungee cords too.
E.. LED Maltese Cross Taillights
F.. cooler basket & cooler
I'll post a couple pics of it tomorrow, hopefully I'll paint it next weekend.
