biggest bike trailer i have ever seen

I was in Bullhead Az. feb. 16 in the food city parking lot and seen this guy pulling a trailer behind a giant mtn bike. It was huge , made of 1in. sq. steel tubing and expanded steel mesh for the top. It had three wheels all 26 in. mtn bike. It was approx. 3 feet wide and 5 feet long, bike and trailer took up a whole parking space. The owner said he had 22,000 miles on the trailer and with gear weighed 200 lbs. He said he was from Cheyenne Wy. and he collects alum cans to fund his journey,I gave him five bucks and so did another lady, hopping he got something to eat as i watched him light a smoke. My picture did not turn out well so i could show the jerryriggin that went into this mammoth. I am by no means putting this guy down I cant help to think how much weight he could shave off, and offered to build a lighter one for him if he makes it to my area . Keep a lookout for him in the laughlin, bullhead area and if you can get a good pic post it.

I think I have heard of him. Or someone like him. Apparently he has a bit of a reputation.
