Here's a project that's been sitting at the back of my brain ever since I've built the Pajero. When I finished that car I added a trailer hitch point, but never really used it for anything. But, I've since acquired a bit more courage to scratchbuild stuff, and a pile of brass tubing. I'm planning to build something like this: Not too complicated, and since these things lead a rough life I can be a bit sloppy and it'll still look decently realistic. I'm doing this in three phases. First and foremost I'll build the deck. Once that's finished I'll work out a way to make it to move, and then find some way to attach it to the car. The Pajero has a tow hitch attachment point, and I'll build a ball receiver for it when it's all said and done. In terms of size, I'm going with a deck of 200mm by 400mm. Larger real trailers are around that size, and it fits my 195ishmm wide touring cars well. For wheels and tires I'll be using M-chassis 60Ds. Those will net me a realistic size for the usually 14 or 15 inch trailer wheels. I've noticed that American trailers have these distinct white spoke wheels, but I'm shooting for Euro-style steelies: I'm thinking either the Alfa Giulia wheels, or the ubiquitous VW Beetle wheels spraypainted either silver or white. Anyway, onto the actual build!
