What's that, you don't have $750 laying around for one of those fancy strollers?... well then this build is for you.
I bought this Burley stroller/bike trailer from Craigslist for $160 ($500 retail) in near perfect shape. My wife and I saw that you can buy a ski kit ($230), but that it's not made for the older model we have--- that got the wheels turning.
I spent about $60 for parts from a big box store plus the original $160 for the stroller and it still costs less than the ski set-up alone.
This is my first post here, I hope it's clear. Good luck
It took me 4-5 hrs, designing as I built. It should only take you about 2 hrs

-All drilled holes are 1/4" except where another size is mentioned.
-The plywood and tubes set-up will be referred to as "the bracket"
-Because this is made to be taken apart for storage and travel you may find it useful to label the parts.
-When installing the carriage bolt set-up, keep the wing nuts on the outside so as not to rip the stroller when assembling.
