Carrying my paddleboard on my Aevon trailer
23 September 2019 | By Marieke |
Koen lives in Belgium. Happy owner of a paddle board, he needed to find a way to carry it on his KIT L80 Aevon trailer.
With a friend they launched into the project of conceiving a paddle-stand for bike trailer.
“I had the impulsive idea of buying myself a paddle board… Nice, but not so easy to carry around. Luckily, I had this fantastic KIT L80 trailer that seemed perfectly suited to carry a paddle-board. So a friend and I began thinking of a home-made paddle stand.
Luckily my dear friend has crazy insight and saw it straight away, while I was seeing so much different options. We set up a triangular system and put it highly enough on the rear part of the trailer so the paddle would be at the same level all along.
The rest was already on the trailer and we just had to help ourselves. We used the fixing holes already present on the rear of the trailer to fix the triangle.
To thighten the board to the trailer I got old innertubes from bikes.
The front bar is a tube welded to a steel bar with hooks.
To improve the system, I’m thinking of adding some foam on the frame of the trailer. I would also like to find a way to prevent damage on the fixing holes.
Now I can carry my paddle, but also my planks, bikes, windows, a mattress… you name it !
Has anyone already thoughy of transforming his bike trailer to carry firewood ? That would be the next project 🙂 !”
Many of you transform Aevon trailers to adapt them to your own use, to carry material or even your pets.
We are used to seeing bike trailers adapted to carry solar panels for travellers who leave for several months.
Tell us how you adapted your own trailer, we’re happy to share it here !
