DIY Bike trailer

Does anyone have experience with building a trailer to pull a kayak or Stand up paddle board? I am thinking of building one and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. Thanks!

I hear tell of people using Burley parts and a section of aluminum ladders for long DIY trailers.

older burley with bunks above the tops of the wheels.

use a rack hitch on the front of the canoe, I didn't get any pictures of that. I made a canoe bike trip after building the trailer and decied that it wasn't really working for me. On the other hand I have hauled horse troughs, bales of hay and kegs.

for a SUP you might want to research surf board racks that mount on the bike.

cheers,
