Built a trailer to haul stuff to save gas. Pictured is when I ran down to the store to get some butane for the gas BBQ pit.

That is great. Do you notice much of a change in handling when you’re pulling the trailer?

I have to admit that at first I misread the title and thought it was 120 miles/hour.

Ok, you got me, I was thing MPH instead of MPG. Does it bounce too much without suspension ?
good work I like it.

Neat trailer. I had to look twice at the title. I thought it said 120 MPH!!!!!!!!!! 120mpg I can see.
If you make a bigger one to get a 4×8 sheet on, that would eliminate the need for the pick up!

Better test that thing before you go hauling propane tanks around! ;-)

My neighbor has a scooter just like that, and he’s a real DIY type. I’ve gotta show this to him…. I know he’ll want one.

Sure would make a big boom with that propane tank back there, if somebodoy were to hit it with a car. Course, you wouldn’t hear it.
