 I own a 2007 single axle trailer. it has california license plate 4hy5675. i bought the trailer new in 2007. the tailgate is very heavy. the neighbor's 5 year old boy unlatched the tailgate and fortunately was not hurt when the tailgate fell. i think that these trailers should have some means of locking so that the owners can secure the tailgate. by the way, your choice of vehicle trailers did not include dargo, so i chose xl.
