    I Paid $15 for this one:
    99_master_cycle_2-child_bicycle_trailer_30061957.jpg
    and am turning into a cargo/dog trailer, got no kids...

    Here it is on the first test run at 103 pounds GVWR,, total trailer weight
    that's a 70 pound floor jack in a 17 pound box n strap on the 16 pound chassis.
    Still need to center things and work out details, finished it should be at $50.

    Cat hauler...



    She is a stray (was abandoned) and has adopted us as well as our neighbours so she has a warm safe place to sleep, good food, and she likes bikes.



    On a more serious note, the bikeE pulls the trailer so well that you forget it's there... the high psi Comet tyres really cut down the rolling resistance too.

    Mobile shop with trailer #2 ... the main box fits in my older trailer like a glove and the press bar locks it it while the repair stand can be clamped to the trailer which makes it very secure.

    The balance on the trailer with this set up is pretty much perfect too.

    The rig pays for itself... could not believe how grotty my chain looked (it was running smoothly) but Stretch was parked outside through several torrential rainstorms and took a month off while I have been using other bikes.

    Stretch doubles as a work table too.



    The chain needed some multi stage rust remover / inhibitor to get it looking like this.

    New to me Trailer

    For some reason cheap trailers are non-existent in St. Louis... Here is my new to me $60 Schwinn trailer with about 50 lbs of goods after about 20 miles. I am hooked!

    I found carrying stuff in my kid trailer (similar to above) to be quite awkward due to the sling-style seat and fabric footwell area, which is why I rigged mine up with plywood and storage container for hauling stuff.

    I am probably going to be going that way soon. I took the seat out, but left the sides in tact and so far it has helped the load balance quite a bit. If I can find another cheap(er) trailer like this locally, I want to try something a bit more creative with even extending the length of the trailer. You guys have provided plenty of fuel for the fire in the trailer dept.
