All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.
Oh, building your own changes things! Got a pair of motorcycle wheels and the ability to bend and weld conduit? You can build a heck of a nice light weight trailer with that. I've seen it done with bicycle wheels also, but the tires aren't DOT legal. Skip the springs, letting the sidewalls of the tire do the flexing, and you cut down a whole lot of weight and complexity. Look at the kiddie trailers for bicycles for inspiration.

High hitch a single wheel trailer and it stays far more stable than the low hitched types.
