Just tied one of these (http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?prodCatType=0&storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=98062&cmArea=SEARCH) to my rack this morning to tote a package to the Post Office. Worked pretty well. The nice thing is I could break it down and tie it to my rack afterwards.
So what's the sketchiest trailer you've rigged up?

When I was about 7 my dad made me a trailer out of a 5 gallon bucket and a set of wheels from the "curbside city provided trashcans" and made the hitch out of a narrow metal rod. I used to pick up cans on the side of the road in my neighborhood with it and my bike and take them to the recycling center about 3 blocks from my house.
He took me to the bank and I used the first $100 I saved from the cans to start my first bank account.

Ok, that whellbarrow definitely beats my crate for sketchiness. The trashcan idea sounds cool. How much is that initial $100 worth now? :-)
