I just craigslisted a large, two wheeled bike trailer, modified for cargo but with all the stuff to haul children as well. Normally an item like this goes for $60-100 around here, but the guy was moving and wanted to get rid of it fast, so it was a freeby. I'm stoked! Now to think of some large bulky items to move.
Any of you pull trailers with a fg? Is there anything I should know?

Brake sooner than you would without a trailer, and watch the speed on turns. I've flipped my trailer more than once.
Don't forget how wide you are, I've hit a few stationary objects with my rear wheels before. Also, I run puncture resistant tubes in mine. It's hard to avoid glass and thorny weeds since you don't know exactly where the wheels are.

Now you too can have huge thighs like me!
I find its best to REMEMBER you are towing a trailer when riding in traffic. Just let the momentum come to you. Don't try to outsprint those cars at the lights. Wind it up slow.
