    Bike Cargo Trailer / Tent

    I was looking at cargo trailers today (not for touring, just errands) and came across this. Has anyone seen one of these? It's an interesting idea.

    I don't have any experience or opinion of those trailers you linked to, but I own one of these and highly recommend one. They occasionally go on sale new by the builder on ebay.
    I don't have a solution but I admire the problem!

    It's been done before. Here is a link to one done in the 1930's.

    It's easier to pick a Yankee tourist than a bail of cotton.

    That thing's more like a coffin than a trailer.

    Interesting solution to a problem that may not exist.

    Looks heavy and it's pretty expensive IMO. I'f I'd want a trailer, I wouldn't get anything larger than a Bob Yak.

    Yes, a BOB Yak and a quality tent would be a much better choice for much less money.

    For a cheap cargo trailer, check this out.
