Soon (this fall) I'll need to haul 3 kids for a 5.5 miles, drop two kids, next 1 kid for 1.5 mile and myself for 3 more miles commute (and sometimes back in reverse too)
Current mode of operation is a Schwinn/InStep two kids trailer and a rear seat (Bobike Maxi).
But kids are getting bigger and I'm guessing next year the neighbor girl will be too big for the trailer:
Bakfiets would be one option, but it's out of my price range.
I've noticed several relatively cheap ($399) pedicabs on ebay:
Anybody had any experience with these?
They only have one gear and I have several big hills in to go - How hard do you think would be to modify it to at least 7 speed?
Do you think it would be worth the effort?
How stable are these while turning?
My other thought is using a husky cargo trike:

but it's also a single gear solution and several people reported these as being tippy.
