Hi there. While I suppose people-hauling would also go in the Recreation & Family section, I thought Utility was a better place.
I have an InStep Journey (2-seater) children's bike trailer. Most trailers say not to have a kid more than 100lbs or two at 50lbs ride in it. But is that just for safety reasons? Or structural?
Could I build some sort of seat supported by the frame that would allow an adult to ride in the trailer? I'm sure the fabric wouldn't hold them, but I figured a removeable contraption could balance weight on the frame or something... I'm not an engineering type, or very brave to risk ruining my perfectly good trailer by experimenting.
I wondered if someone had any ideas or had done that before. Ideally, I'd want to haul up to 300lbs. (not saying I could physically do that- geez a lawnmower was kind of hard, and laundry!)
(My mom-in-law would not ride a bike with us ever. She says she feels perched up high on display where the world could stare at her. I wondered if she might like to be towed instead [nevermind that that would attract more looks])
