Are you sure about that?
It seems to me that for all the time, effort and money you are using to set up and equip your bike and trailer you could have found and purchased some better gear and IMPROVED your camping experience (and saved much more than 5 pounds) without even bothering with a trailer and the increased risk of pulling one.
