    Gotta love neighbors!

    I've been looking for a trailer to pull my two boys (4 and 3), but it's tough to find one on craigslist for under $100 lately. Yesterday, my neighbor had this out at the end of their driveway with a nice "free" sign. Checked with them to make sure it was free, and with their assent grabbed it!



    Took them for a ride around the block (1.3 miles), they enjoyed it. It was a bit like riding uphill the whole way, but it was do-able.

    Well, the trailer's been used now for a couple of rides to the playground nearby, which is about a mile ride each way. Then on Sunday we loaded the boys and a picnic and rode to the huge playground 4 miles away. I'm loving this trailer, but my fiancee now insists that it needs to be washed because it smells musty. Any suggestions for getting musty smell out of reflective nylon fabric without damaging it?

    I would take it all apart and was with soap and while it was apart I would clean and wheels too.For free you did good wish I could find stuff like that for free you can use it for so many things.

    clean it in-place with some Dawn detergent, a sponge (for suds), and a garden hose, then let it dry in the sun, then add a final touch of Febreeze? That'd be my best shot. Tearing it down and off the frame is going to be not-easy, I'd guess.
