The Y Frame trailer from Carry Freedom is one on my favourite trailer ideas. Incredibly simple, the Chassis is an aluminium Y which is then topped by a wooden deck. The deck is predrilled so that you can fit lugs (supplied by the trailer maker) to any box that you have lying around. Alternatively bags to fit the deck can be supplied or you can choose from a substantial collection of plastic crates or locking alloy trunks.
One of the best features, IMHO, are the wheel mountings. These are wheelchair stub axles so that the wheel is mounted only on the inside making it really easy to mend a puncture while also minimising the frame weight.
The CFY is available in two sizes. The small version has 16" wheels, carries 45Kg and costs £180 plus your choice of box. The Large size carries a whopping 90Kg, has 20" wheels and is only £20 dearer.
Carry freedom's website is a thing of beauty too. Visit it at carryfreedom.com
