I've done the Road-train thing. As noted earlier they're awkward and they would only be more so if they got longer. I imagine there utility would be like the real road trains in Australia - if you...

Here's one I've been making for years. It's held up well and can even twist in the middle unlike regular u-joints. You can see more at www.redbiketrailer.com261246

You could get a thin piece of plywood the roughly the same size as the pizza box and then bungee them to a rear rack. The plywood will reinforce the box and keep if from collapsing.

I'd want to reinforce the holes you're zip tying through. Maybe with a piece of AL strap which is in turn pop riveted to the coroplast (with backing washers) Bottom line is you want to distribute...
