Bicycle trailer

Hello,
i need to construct a 3D wooden bicycle trailer for Kids. The weight of bicycle trailers must also be light!
I don't know where I should start? I thought I'd start from chasis, but what criteria should I use to construct a chasis.

Thank you

There's a sticky at the top of this subforum for trailer construction tips.
You might also check out the trailer designs on Instructables.com.

1/8" thick door skin ply of mahogany is pretty light & cheap.

Carry Freedom Y frame trailer offers models, and there are some using Bamboo..

maybe your kids can help you design it, get them involved in the problem solving..
