Default Cheap and easy to build trailer

Parts: 2 wheel dolly, couple of 5 foot lengths of 3/4" PVC some rope or cable...I used old copper phone line and about 15 minutes

Weave the PVC pipe don the length of the hand truck weaving it in and out of the cross-members
Run cord, rope or cable thru the pvc atatching it to the middle pipe on the hand truck at the end closest to the ground.
Tie it secure at the end of the PVC closest to where it will attatch to the bike leaving some slack on the end
Tie the contraption to the bottom side of the seat...the wire on mine is plenty sturdy.
I also wound more phone cord the whole lenght of the pipes to make it more ridgid and secure.
The thing resembles a rickshaw at a 30% angle.
Go for a ride and watch everyone look at ya like U is crazy!

I'm gonna add a bumper sticker "Don't laugh it's paid for"

The biggest plus is plenty of places to tie down you load, under belly storage as well.
