I know what you are thinking - "Geez, another bicycle trailer?" There are a bunch of great bike trailers on Instructables, I know because I studied (here's the COLLECTION I created). I studied because I've been wanting to build one for years. As luck would have it, I just traded a bulky office partition for a Yakima CaddyYak. This is actually quite a nice kid transporter and, as I recently learned, Yakima does not build them any longer. This trailer folds up into a neat little package and will hold up to 100 pounds. I'm going to strip it down and rebuild it for my own purposes.
Reasons To Own A Bicycle Trailer:
I had trouble finding information on my new trailer so I called Yakima, the nice lady on the phone sent me a PDF of my model (which I have shared on this page).
Yakima CaddyYak Hack
This process was fairly easy and somewhat intuitive. I only had to cut several pieces to remove the whole covering. My goal was to save the outer covering and possibly reuse it if the need ever came up. The pieces that I cut were related to the seat and, not having children, I plan to never reuse.
