I have been wanting a trailer, but was having one heck of a time justifying the cost to my wife. So, I decided to make my own using stuff we had out in the garage...
The framework is made out of pieces from an old front/back double stroller and the wheels are from a couple of trashed out toddler bikes we had sitting out in the garage. The tow arm is part of an aluminum golf bag caddy.
I'm still working on an anchoring system for the bin. I don't like having to detach the bin to open it. I want it to be secure but not too hard to put on a larger bin, dog kennel or just use it as a flat bed. One adjustment I'm going to make is to put more bend in the tow arm. It bumps the basket support on slow right hand turns.
On its virgin run, I brought home 70+ pounds of dog & cat food, cat litter and other groceries. It rode very well and I'm already planning to build one for my canoe.
