Trailers bring up a whole new set of questions:
License/registration costs and requirements?
Brakes or no brakes?
Yet another mechanical item to maintain, tires,wheels,bearings,hitch,lights.
Hmm, I better rethink this whole ATV idea
No you should definitely get an ATV. Trailers aren't that big of a deal.. a small utility trailer isn't that expensive, and you can pretty much store it where ever you were planning on storing the ATV, or just park it in the yard somewhere.
As long as you have a drivers license, you can drive it.
Registration is same as registering a vehicle. One fee a year. and its cheaper.
don't need brakes unless its a LARGE trailer.
Yes you need brake lights.. most trailers that are street legal already have them.
Insurance for trailers is cheap.
Very little maintenance besides making sure the tires look ok before you drive away.
