        Comments about Clam Polar Trailer TA 1500, Tandem Axle:

        After wearing out 2 steel trailers hauling primarily firewood, leaves, and manure, I decided to try this one behind my ATV, and after a month of use, I'm very pleased.

        What's great:
        -I purchased it with the rails, and it's huge. About double the capacity of the steel trailers that everyone sells.
        -It's quiet. Makes virtually no noise when I'm pulling it through the woods. A very welcome change after my other trailers.
        -The tandem axle makes for a smoother ride. It's rather nice not to have my chainsaw bouncing up & down in the trailer when I toss it back there.
        -I drive a half ton pickup, and now have a 3/4 ton ATV trailer. Love how much I can haul.

        What to watch for:
        -With the single axle, it's maybe 4-5" wider than an ATV. The tandem axle adds a bit of width, so it's maybe 8-10" wider than an ATV. When I'm pulling it through the woods, I always keep my ATV in low to limit my speed to 5-10 mph, because I have a feeling that it would be not be too good to catch a tree with the trailer axle.
        -I bought the tandem axle because I though it would make for a smoother ride. It has. It appears that if you hit a big enough hole, the tandem axle could flip upside down, and the way it is designed, it wouldn't ride upside down. I haven't managed to make this happen yet, so maybe I'm just overly concerned. The flip side of this is it makes changing a tire super easy - just lift the trailer, flip the tandem axle upside down, and the tire rests about 2" off the ground.
        -The tandem axle gives you a smoother ride, and probably allows for more capacity, however when turning the trailer with a load, especially on concrete or asphalt, it appears to put a lot of stress on the axle. I try to keep it off road with heavy loads to avoid this, or else make sure I do my turning on gravel before backing it into my garage to offload a load of firewood.

        What pleasantly surprised me:
        -The distance between the axle and the hitch makes it super easy to back up. What used to be a challenge is now a non-event.
        -The way it dumps. I knew, just by the design that the trailer wouldn't completely dump a load of dirt or gravel or manure. Everyone mentions this in the reviews, but hasn't been a problem for me. I either put a tarp in the trailer to get the 40% that doesn't dump, or else I unhook the hitch & just push the trailer up to finish dumping. It only takes a couple of seconds, and is faster than using a hoe or shovel to empty it out. The great surprise for me was firewood. I empty it from the back, then dump the trailer. With the poly bed, the firewood slides to the back. If I don't let it tip quite all the way, the firewood slides nicely to the back, but doesn't dump out, b/c of the way the back is designed. This allows me to empty from the back, without having to do a bunch of reaching over the side rails.

        What's not so great:
        Only complaint that I have is that the design forces you have to drill holes for the rail to fit the trailer. It took me longer to install the rails than it did to put the trailer together.
