    I'm working on a tow behind golf bag carrier to get me to the golf course, made from a 2 wheel bag walker thingy that the fit old guys use. Swapping out the wheels with some old bmx, and adding a bar to attach to (probably) the seatpost.
    I have towed the kids trailer, but it attaches very close to my gear/chain and I don't trust it with a body in it yet.

    I love the trailer thread so am re-posting a trailer I used for a few years about 20 years ago when all I needed were my legs and attitude to get me long distances with plenty of gear and adequate speed. My friend John, of "Rotten Orange" fame, started a trailer for me that I need to finish soon. I may do that and post pics too.

    Done! One coat of black stain and one coat of satin Poly. Too impatient and cheap for 2 coats. :) That's a .50cal ammo can painted flat black mounted to the front, spaced with some neat bushings found at Ace. I might try and find some 26" wheels for it so it sits a little more level. They'd have to be dished though.

    I have a trailer similar to yours and was wondering how did you hook it up to your axle with the sprocket anyway?

    That looks quite nice and rugged too!

    Here's how I hooked mine up; 3/8" heim joint with a pin. Hookup takes about 10 seconds along with the 12v hot wire

    Have a build thread here somewhere.

    My new frame doesn't have the hitch on it, cause I don't like a big trailer. I look like a homeless guy with it. So I'll be building a single wheel trailer in the future, if I need to.
