I got the curt hitch brand hitch on sale shipped for like $113.

My miles per kwh sucked.
About 2 to 2.5 miles per kwh.

I made my trailer.
It was a 4'x8' bolt together harbor freight trailer 3 revisions ago when I bought it in 2008 to pull behind my diesel suburban.
Now it's a 4'x8.5' fully welded frame, rides on a 2,200lb brake axle with 12 inch steel belted radial load range E alloy wheels and Aluminum diamond plate deck.
I spent about $500 just on the brake axle, springs and wheels.
2011 white SL leaf with 2014 batt.
Chargers: Panasonic brick moded for 240v, duosida 16a 240v and a 10kw setec portable CHAdeMO

I'm getting 3.5 miles average right now with just me. Hard to stay off the skinny pedal.

Trim and miles are totally irrelevant when dealing with EVs and NEVER trust the dealer to test the battery for you. There's a hack to make the battery give more bars than the actual battery capacity. Buy the Nissan Leaf spy app and the connector cable for the app on amazon. Test the battery yourself. Even if it was not hacked a Leaf with 12 bars of battery capacity could be anything from 85.1% to 100% capacity. If it were at 85.1%, you could drive it one time and it would drop to 85% and be at 11 bars.

In the case of used Leafs, eGolfs and a few other cars, the trim level (and now the option packages on the 2018+) determines whether or not you get a heat pump. That is often very important.

Using a high quality data cable seems to work.
