I intend to have a trip along Canal du Midi during the summer for at least 3 days with friends of mine and using backpacks or racks did not seem to be very pratictal. The idea of a trailer in which you can easily put the tent mattress and any stuff you want came to me.
Step 1: 1 or 2 wheels ?
As the road will be a single track for many kilometers, a single wheel trailer seemed to be the best solution.
I discovered two main trailer constructors:
- Bob (http://www.bobgear.com/ )
- Aevon (http://www.aevon-trailers.com/)
These constructors use different fixing solutions. Bob trailers use rear axle fixation whereas Aevon ones use seat tube solution.
I decided to make a trailer as similar as possible to the Aevon trailer.
