Could you also attach a shopping cart basket to the base to add some additional carry space?
When the fabric on our old child trailer started to disintegrate, I took off the fabric and the roll bars completely and installed a wood floor right on top of the old base. That made a really good extension to our cargo bike when we gutted and refitted our bathrooms.
Well done, Marty👍🏻I‘ve got a similar idea to reuse an old biketrailer…now I am happy to have a nice example!🙂
What is the thickness of the wood you used?
I have one small addition to your design. When you dismantled the trailer you used your foot to protect the reflectors. You could mount a rubber door stopper/buffer next to the reflector on each side.
You just gave me an idea thank you so so much very good video now I’ll make one of my own have a nice day
This is absolutely amazing. So simple, and you’ve made very sensible decisions to keep the cost low while still keeping a great cargo capacity.
This is the perfect trailer I want for carrying around a lawnmower and other things too big or long for my current large sized dog trailer.
Hinterher’s profit margins must be absolutely huge.
You have my genuine admiration.
Put some removable side’s on it
Nice one! — Did you check the maximum weight you could load …?
Ich habe auch einen flatbed-Anhänger aber Ihrer hat den größten Vorteil, dass man nicht schweißen muss.
What is the maximum tare load for this BikeTrailer?
Why not add a front wheel on a castor instead of a kickstand? I’m currently building a trailer and thinking about doing that
I would like to make one out of wood
this is awesome!
Wow, I will always cheer for you in Korea I’m looking forward to a great video. Have a nice day.
Thank you for sharing your work which is excellent, today I started to see the carts of the same German company H, and although I had an idea with them I defined them, however doing it I was not very clear about what materials to use, you clarified everything and I will do mine equal and identical
If you could please share the brand of the trailer that I use so that the axle works very well or which one you recommend the most,
of. The best ones that I allow myself to comment on would be to make 4 to 6 cm punches to lighten the table,
thanks and congratulations, it looks almost identical to the original of H,
Looks fun and useful. An adjustable bike kickstand may work.
fein. aber ich würde empfehlen, die Metalkanten noch zu beschichten wäre zu schade wenn alle Schnittkanten und gebohrten Löcher rosten.
Noch eine Idee:
die Mitteldeichsel hinten befestigen. So kann man den beladenen Hänger gut ans Rad rangieren und hat später eine Halterung für ein Fähnchen oder extra Beleuchtung, oder sogar noch einen zusätzlichen Anhänger…. (oder ein Stützrad?)
loved the video man, schön gemacht und hammmer idee die deichsel als griff umzumounten.
Wieviel denkst du hält deiner aus? und hast du Verbesserungen gemacht? 🙂 Ich plane gerade einen überarbeiteten Straßenmusik-Hänger (vers. 1 sieht man in einigen videos auf meinem kanal)
Und sogar noch mit Profit das Teil selbst gebaut.
Hinterher macht richtig überteuerte scheiße.
2000 euro für einen Alubox Anhänger.
Thats amazing! thanks for sharing you idea 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Looks great 👍
Marty, thanks for the great video! Where did you put the wheel axle? I bet more weight should be put towards the hitch. The H-trailer looks like it has the axle at approx. 1.5 ratio (front/rear distance). Have you experimented with different positions to find out how the bike handles if more weight is loaded towards the hitch?
I am thinking of making a similar trailer but with higher sides and I want to use pvc pipes to make an arch or rib going from side to side and then cover with tarp like covered wagons for a bottom use corplast and 1×2 for wheels I am thinking wheelchair so they only need supported on 1 side so there’s no shaft or axle what do u think of the wheels?????? but I won’t get to it anytime soon was hoping someone would see this and try it
I’m your 500th subscriber!
I would personally raise the floor a bit so it’s above the wheels and you can load even more stuff onto it, then integrate a hidden foldable chair into that raised part, so that you can take passengers with you as well!
Something as simple as splitting the raised bit into three plywood panels, and folding up the rear one for a back rest and folding down the front panel for a foot rest could work!
I find your voice very soothing… like listening to a story teller reading The Cat in The Hat. 😊
BTW, wonderful work and thoroughly planned out!
awesome trailer! awesome video!
Hi Marty, do you have a list of parts you used? I’d like to build it like yours. It’s cheap, stable, pretty, easy built and small – exactly what I searched for.
impressive build! I really want to do this on own, very likely heavily inspired by yours.
Could you please share were you bought these steel profiles? (I am from germany, too, so shop names would also be fine)
Damn, I’d been looking at building a cargo bike for work but this is way for financially viable. It’s only a 10 minute drive and I spend so much on fuel nipping round site. This would easily fit all the tools I need on a day to day basis, might have to have the spirit levels hanging off the end but it’ll be worth it for all the money saved on fuel
I saw your project and i would like make one bike trailer
Do you can post or send a mail with the list of part necessary for made
very thank you
Eres grande, todas tus ideas son extraordinariamente inteligentes, porque hacen posible conseguir buenas cosas por muy poco dinero, e incluso poco trabajo(esto es aun mejor) de forma limpia y elegante, un buen amigo hace cosas asi, entonces creo que eres un buen amigo de todo el mundo. (Pon un Paypal para que te inviten a 1 cerveza o un Cafe desde todo el mundo miles y miles) GRACIAS !!
I know I’m late posting this. But there is a company in Canada called WIKE. They sell DIY kits that are very easy to build, to what ever size you need. A bit pricey but I built one a few years ago, and its still going strong. You might give them a look. If you haven’t already, you need to add flags and side reflectors, or better yet, tail lights and side lights.
Brilliant idea. I’ve just recently managed to salvage some angle profiles from a garbage container (yes, some companies are really throwing away stuff like that!) and was looking for us for them. I think I’ll copy your design, maybe just go a little smaller.
So about 33 pounds, sorry I do not do metric.
I want a tow bar.
Make these and sell them you could make a lot of money
so to build a trailer, you start with a trailer
Súper…..! Ich habe eine gemacht…!
I got an idea for you. You could build side walls from pallet boards take apart pallets pull nails out of them use L brackets to screw to trailer floor and sides. Then you could haul dirt or wood sawdust.
Very nice trailer design. Thank you.
Super video Bro. 🙋🏻♂️🇵🇪
Is the axel centered on the box?
Helga……you May Kiss me now😆
Marty, just use one or 2 regular bicycle kickstands for the front. That’s what I’m working on today
I’m looking to make one to transport a 3m ladder and my tools to various jobs.
I’d have to change the gears on the bike to help me pull it all though. Thoughts??
Cheers for the video. It helped.
Yeah in my experience if your carrying enough stuff to warrant a trailer you better hope your route is either really flat or all down hill on the way home. Add the weight of the trailer to even just a 30-50 lb load and those hills are a killer, never mind full stops and starts at intersections and the like.
