The all-aluminum, 12-foot-long Cargo-Lite trailer from Micro-Lite Trailer Manufacturing Inc., Elkhart, Ind., can be used to haul toys or for sleeping off the ground. “It’s extremely versatile,” said Jim Mulder, product rep and owner of Gunlake Paddle Sports, Wayland, Mich., one of a half-dozen dealers selling Micro-Lite products in the U.S. and Canada. Most sales, however, are factory-direct, Mulder said. Other of Micro-Lite’s all-aluminum products include the Moto-Mate, one-person motorcycle trailer; the Wazat travel trailer; the Pup, a 360-pound folding camping trailer; the Cargo-Lite Xtreme; and the Vymeron toy hauler. The company was founded in 2007 by former Coachmen executive Chuck Ornduff Sr. and his son, Chuck Ornduff Jr., company president. The Cargo-Lite features RV-style screened entrance doors with running boards on each side of the trailer and a rear door that can be outfitted with a ramp or barn doors. It also is designed with two screened windows and roof vent with fan. At 48-inches-high, the Cargo-Lite interior is equipped with a countertop with a cubbyhole for storage beneath. With a dry weight of 790 pounds, the Cargo-Lite can be hauled by just about any four-wheeled vehicle. Options include a roof rack and air conditioner. MRSP: $6,190.
