    Cool Voltruk

    I know, I know... gonna get some flak for this, but I'm willing to be the guinea pig here.








    Trailer is 57" wide by 8 feet long. Weighs 290 lbs (132kg) and is made in Minnesota by a company named Floe.

    Capacity is 1800 lbs (815kg). On the tongue it it shows that it can carry up to 33 sheets of 4'x8'x1/2" plywood.

    Trip home from the dealer was about 50 miles. pulled at 70 mph like nothing was there.

    Default Torklift 2" hitch

    My recently purchased Red '13 had a secret that I didn't figure out until the new license plates came; the PO had intsalled a Torklift Eco- Invisi hitch.

    Here is a shot of the setup. 8" drop hitch for this particular trailer to ride level. Plate is still visible when hitched.




    Probably not going to carry a bobcat:

    OMG! You're breaking the law, your warranty is void, if you're in accident it's automatically your fault, and insurance won't cover you!! Stop that right now and get yourself a diesel dually, which is the only safe tow vehicle for a 2000-lb trailer.

    Just kidding. Thought I'd get all the internet myths out of the way early. Looks like a good setup. (minus the Bobcat )

    You should see what I've towed behind my Prius. (Commercial Zero turn mower, snowmobiles etc). 1200-1500 lbs includes trailer weight. I've gotten some funny comments at the gas pump. "Now there's something you don't see everyday".

    The result is the same, you barely know it's back there.

    At some point I'll be adding a hitch to the Volt too.

    NO, no, no. That trailer looks like it has enough room to install a wind turbine, solar panels, and a generator connected to the wheels. With that setup, you would NEVER need to plug in.

    Was the surprise hitch pre-wired or did you get that done? Also, been doing a lot of research into my towing requirements and found that the tires on the trailer may not be rated over 65mph. May want to check that. Heat is the enemy of trailer tires.
