Suitcase Trailer now Convertible

Some may remember my suitcase trailer, designed to carry 2 hard case suitcases and a small trunk for ease of moteling.

I have pondered for a while if it could also be adapted as a bicycle trailer. I finally tackled the project and it turned out to work well.

Pictures below of it as the suitcase version (minus its vinyl cover) and as the bike trailer.

Oh, I dunno - prolly haul this year's lumber stash, for Cheryl's annual yard art display and offering to the reindeer gods. Dang thang changes every year! Wanna full size sleigh, some funky lookin' antlered doods, gaily wrapped oversize empty packages, three color (red/white/black, and I don't paint within the lines!! ) jolly ole phart with one eye; and some choker chains for the antlered doods?? Give it all to ya, or pay ya to take it!! Heck, I'll even deliver it!

Anyway, thought Ron did good, for a bike carrier. I didn't know he and Delores were into that strenuous activity!!
