I want to see it with the covering installed and someone's feet hanging out of the "frontgate".

I'm not trying to be a smarta$$ here, but wouldn't it be just as easy to use one of these without the legs, and be able to use all of the storage below? You could permanently mount it and make a cover for it when it is folded down.

I already made one of those.
tent cot
you have to wait for finish product to understand concept .
The ideal is to ride and fast set up, even in Wal-Mart parking lot set up.

I don't see a trailer for $179.99 on Harbor Freight's website. Do you have a URL or link to the item?

I get their email sale coupons, I just asked to be on the email list.
I am not on the buyer's club or what ever it is, so I do not know if the price is even lower.
In the store they post the buyers club prices along side of the regular pricing.
But I have not been in yet to see if the trailer is priced differently. I think the $179.99 price is most likely about as low as it will get.
Earlier in the month it was $199.00 on a email coupon, but on Monday the one I received was $179.99, limit 5 :lol:
I think Van used the running gear to make a front wheel dolly also.
