Huffy Nel Luso - Wanting a trailer.

Hello all, I love my Huffy Nel Luso to death and would die for it, I am getting some mirrors and a turn signal for it, but I want a trailer to haul more items and a possible camper with that as well, but have no clue where to go/look. My budget is 60-100 dollars.

CL would be a place to look for trailers. I doubt you could pull a camper trailer but maybe it is possible. You could also build your own trailer. A picture of 2 that I did. Roger

The In-Step and similar toddler toting trailers can make good starting points for a DIY trailer. I have one that I cut down because I though it was too wide. I have a welder so I can put it back together after I hacksawed it apart. This is just an idea. You may want to also check out the utility section of BikeForums.

A two kiddy trailer works great for hauling things after you remove the seat and restraint systems.
I found mine at a yard sale.
In Step is a good brand.

A SUGGESTION; A STRONG suggestion:
Replace the pneumatic tubes for airless flat free tubes ~ on the curb side at a minimim.
On your Nel Luso run tire liners and 8 to 16 ounces of Slime or other tire sealant, per tire.
Bicycle tires are thorn/sandburr magnets.
When (not "if") your trailer gets a flat, it acts screwy, (especially if/when severely overloaded) and is a little harder to pull.
I replace the regular tubes for airless in all of my trailers, and run tire liners and slime in all my bike and adult trike tires.
Good luck.
