Side loading that style hitch concerns me. It was designed to be vertical.
I don't see how it's any easier to manuver in that direction, since the tow vehicle limits how far you can turn the trailer anyway.
Am I missing something? I'm not picking a fight, just concerned.

He said in a previous post that he just turned it to move out of garage by hand.

FYI GreenTaco, your trailer build page goes to post #4. Kinda weird.

I like the trailer. My neighbor way up the street has a desert tan one on the side of their house that hasn't moved in several years. If I ever see them outside, I'm going to stop and ask them about taking it off their hands. It looks like it's in pretty good shape.
