    Scrapped Chrysler minivan years ago and saved rear portion. Would like light trailer to pull behind car and haul a couple of bikes. Flipped it upside down and started working on a tongue for it.

    Section I saved is about 5 ft long so gonna add 2 ft to the front deck over the tongue.

    First cut looks interesting. Will be dedicated to bicycles or dual purpose?

    The idea is a bike hauler and other light duty.
    To be pulled by small car.:)

    Got it to the test drive stage, with wheels on so I can move it around. Good so far gotta take pics after the box is done. :)
