With friends, we wanted to do a little 450km bike trip, and we needed something to carry our stuff. So it was a good excuse to start building à trailer !
It was made using recycled parts :
- Silentbloc for the suspension
- BMX parts
- Universal joint
- Iron tubes from a lawnmower
- Iron grid from old industrial machines
Some tricky parts like the seatpost fixation was made by my neighboor at his work.

Overview of the trailer. As the gooseneck was too thin, two inox plate were added in reinforcement.

Finally the trailer made 450 km in 5 days loaded with 20kg. The behavior was excellent and it was really easy to drive it in singletracks.
