Simple bike trailer.
Made from a baby pushchair, bike tube and broom stick.
Only 3 main parts needed and min tools needed to build it
Speed does not matter for the trailer as it has good build in shocks and tires are not super hard.
It follows the bike rather well also so its easy to pull. Feels very light

Step 1: Items Needed
Some things are needed at first.
a. Try find an old baby push chair.
b. Broom stick or some sort of light strong wood pole
c. Old bike tube
Time taken to build up was about 40min.
Easy to make.
Cost : 0 depending on what parts u can find.
Step 2: Steps
Chop up the baby chair as needed.
Cut off parts u dont like but keep the structure strong. Modify as needed. I cut off the top and some other bars. This will all depend on what u find.
Step 3: Hook Up to the Bike
Then get a good length for the broom stick. Check lenght before u cut it. Make notches in the wood to make it not slide away from the chair's body. I looked where i would tie it to the buggie and then there i made slots so that it hooks to the buggy before i started to tie it on.
Then cut up old tire tube into strips. Tie as best u can. U can use any knot u like as this stuff is very strong and if u pull it tight while u do it it will NOT move.
Keep a long section to slide over end. Slide over about 30cm and then use the rest to tie to the seat. If u carry heavy things make sure all the weight is over the axle this will minimize the stress on the connecting arm.
Easy! Let me know if u guys build one
