Jess sayin' Hitch and trailer would be cheaper than getting into a pick-m-up.

+ hitch opens the door for hitch accessories.

I bought my trailer kit from the local Meijers store in 1991 and I don't know how I got along without it before then.

I honestly am astounded that I was able to function as a homeowner for the few months before I got the trailer. Especially considering how many trips I made to the hardware store for studs and sheetrock.
