20121011 Utility Trailer ($300 CL)
需要卡車又不想養卡車的折衷方案，是買輛小拖車，需要時拖在 Yaris 後面可以載運建材、廢料與工具，不用時丟在院子裡 Yaris 照樣省油。
剛好在 Craigslist 上看到 Cap-It 在出清 Yaris 的拖車架（hitch），一支只要 80 大洋含拖球桿（draw bar / ball mount），但安裝要 75 塊，所以一共要 155 加幣，再加稅就上 173 塊了！不過一方面我的套筒與車用的重工具都在台灣沒帶過來，而且這種東西有點安全上的顧慮，所以即使知道我自己裝並不困難，也還是讓廠商賺這筆錢了！
去買了一輛不知道誰在後院裡用 VW 懸掛零件與輪胎拼湊出來的小拖車，完整度 OK，還附手推車（trailer dolly）、腳架（trailer jack）與三個備胎，去領牌買保險之後就掛上 Yaris 拖回來了。
Got this u-built VW suspension trailer from Craigslist with a trailer dolly, trailer jack and 3 spare tires, light weight for Yaris, so I can carry longer or wider items when required, and enjoy the mileage otherwise.
My first trailer hitch ride was quite scary, no speeding, no cutting corners, no sight seeing, slowing down before hand… a lot of considerations that I've never had before, but safe and sound eventually.
However, the first trailer back up was really a pain in the xss! Just a right angle back up from the street to my driveway, but took me 3 minutes to get it done, and 4 tries to cut the flower bed corner. There's not a lot of traffic in the street, or I will be in trouble.
I dollied the last section over the lawn to its parking space… I obviously need more practices on trailer back up, but sometimes the simple and straight forward one is the most appropriate way to go!
