Let me put this puppy to rest! Trailer brakes are a standard feature on Cricket. Weighing in at 1400 pounds and having about the profile of a minivan, its also one of the easiest trailers to tow. The shape helps make it more areo-dynamic as well, reducing wind resistance and fishtailing. Hope this helps!!!
I think the versatility of using it for other things is the appeal of the SylvanSport. The site used to have more customer pictures of what people were using them for. like fitting plywood to create a temporary box for hauling stuff.
