Don't see why... Wood is alot more forgiving than metal and if you have the right tools most projects can be achieved. If I had a trike I'd be gicing it a go...

I'm now wondering if I could build mi small trailer with a wooden frame, easier to put together and the main parts (wheel suspention and UJ) are already ready to bolt straight on...

I've heard a story of a fully fold-out trailer on a bike. I wouldn't mind finding a picture of that.

Default towing

towing regs are quite complex. basically, there are different regs for a solo bike as opposed to a motorcycle combination, and again for trikes. its all based on a few vital measurements and also the towing vehicles weight. these are changed again if the trailer is braked, as opposed to unbraked. theres detail on the sidecar federations website. its not too bad to get your head round. but takes some thought, and a good set of scales!!!!!

In other words "Where theres a Will theres a way"...

So first find yourself a Will...
