I have a 2000 VW Golf TDI that gets 56mpg. I bought a 5'x8' enclosed trailer for $1300 added two new tires and rims for $180, paid $169 for tax, $40 to register it and get a plate, and libility insurance is free at State Farm but I opted for $50 a year for fire and theft. My mileage drops down to 30mpg when I am pulling the trailer. I use the trailer to deliver furniture where I work after hours for which my boss pays for the gas, time (goes on my pay stub), and each time pays a bit toward the trailer until it get paid off.

I think it was a good way to go. Do remember you will take a major hit on fuel mileage.
