DIY Bicycle Trailer List

Here at the Bike Trailer Shop we have a strong passion for anything pulled behind a bike, and that includes DIY projects. We understand that some people might not have the means to dish out $200 or more for a cargo trailer, or they just want to have a home made trailer to show off.

Below are three lists of links to DIY bike trailers. They are categorized on my personal opinion of how the instructions to build are written and presented. Please understand that anything you build you are responsible for, in other words dont get mad at us if it doesnt work the way you expected.

If you are interested in building one of the trailers you have seen here we have a detailed post about Hitches and Couplers that might be handy to read when deciding how to attach the trailer to your bike. If you don’t have the DIY bug but are still interested in viewing more trailers we have a compiled a large list of bike trailers that might assist you in your search for the perfect trailer.

I will continue to add items to this list as I stumble upon more DIY trailers. If you know of a good project that I havent posted on my list please post the URL in the comment box and tell us about it.
