+1 for pulling a trailer. It's just so much easier, especially with camping gear, even when solo. Personally, I feel very little difference in handling with the trailer. Looking at the trailer in the pic, I'd agree that you can do better. Mine is a Bushtec. Bushtec will cost more that $500, but it's a much nicer trailer. Well made, space for the cooler, narrow wheels for less resistance. Gas mileage is a little lower, but it's just so much easier to have all that space. Sure, you'll end up packing some stuff you don't need, but who cares? A few extra changes of clothes, and you don't have to spend every other night of your vacation doing laundry! And you won't spend so long dealing with juggling bungy cords, digging through the trunk to find the other gloves, you can carry your FULL cover, maybe a few more tools, just in case. Want to shed your jacket, just toss it in, rather than trying to figure out where you're going to put it. LUXURY!
