Default Re: Pulling Trailers (wagons)

Last time I went camping I stopped along the way and bought a wheelchair at a yard sale. With the addition of two long sticks tied to my seat post it made an effective trailer to tow the kayak, canoe, or firewood (and quite comment-worthy judging by the reactions of my camp-ground neighbors) but the weight of the canoe and firewood created not only stopping issues but potential stability issues. When I get time to get creative I will fashioning a trailer hitch affixed to the chain stays also to distribute the force as low as possible. A load of logs pushing against my seat post is somewhat unnerving when trying to brake on a curve.
