Great question. Yes, I'm still loving it, however, you always wish things could be better. For me I'm mainly using it to cart kayaks around so I certainly wish the trailer was a little longer, not to mention it makes it easier to back up if it was longer. I redid the wiring for the lights so that they all ground to the jeep not to the trailer, I also added some wood to use as a bumper when I lift up the trailer to set it down. I wish I had designed a mechanism for removing the box from the bed so I could load just the kayaks but... All and all I'm happy. Tires and paint have held up really well, I was worried about the bumping and banging around on the highway but looks like new still. I did throw some sand bags in the front of the trailer to keep the weight forward more so it would wiggle the hitch too much. I will keep you posted after this 4th weekend where I will hopefully be using it a lot!

happy 4th

Thanks for the update, the photo looks great! Interesting comment on the ground for the lights. I bought the red trailer and my harness has a ground wire for each of the tail lights that connects through the plug to the Jeep. My side markers are grounded to the frame via the mounting screw but I am not concerned if those go out.
