    Trailer Fenders

    I'm trying to figure a way to put fenders on a Burley Nomad trailer. There has to be someway of getting a set to fit. Has anyone tried something like this before?

    People in the Utility forum might be able to help you.

    Personally, I'm not sure I see the benefit of adding fenders to a covered cargo trailer meant for touring (according to the ad copy on the Burley site).

    The fenders for the Bikes at Work trailer are just a flat piece of metal, curved and bolted to the frame. You might look at 16" bicycle fenders as well.

    Fenders have some utility even on trailers. In nasty weather at good speed crap can be thrown fairly far forward. Our Yak has fenders built in. So do all the single wheel trailers on the market. I'm not so sure about the two wheel trailers. Recumbent trikes, especially delta configuration trikes, have the same difficulties with fenders that trailers do. Take a look at some and see how they handle it. There might be dealers selling the fenders for branded recumbent trikes (i.e. Greenspeed Anura) that might be made to work.

    saw a picture of someone using a couple plastic oil drip pans , and cutting them up.

    No, I dont have pictures., no I dont own a Nomad either, Burly or Chevy.



    I could get clever with my Burly Flatbed since it uses 2 front hubs .

    and so the struts could be attached to the axle, both sides,

    and the tight QR would hold them too ..

    there's these too , to work with .. http://ecom1.planetbike.com/rec1000a.html

    though 16" there is only fronts, as they were thinking Recumbent, and front wheels of those

    Trailer? Buy 2 , and a few strips of aluminum Flat bar to create the needed mounts..

    Pop rivets and such ..

    20 " there is a front and rear, I used both to make my Pocket Llama Mudguards.
