I'd rather have the money for traveling, though, so I started cooking up plans to build my own. I considered PVC pipe, a popular solution for bicycle trailers, but Cider pointed out that it's not really up to the rigors of highway travel. I scoured the Harbor Freight catalog and picked out a small flat two-wheeled trailer, thinking I'd build a structure on top of it, but Drewbag told me that the wheel bearings in those trailers are awful and would probably leave me on the side of a lonely highway somewhere. Besides, there's no hitch for a Tiger, so I would've had to do some fabrication to add a sport-style hitch in the image of the Third Wheel anyway, and I don't have any welding skills.
Over-inspired and under-funded, I even sketched up some plans for a convertible single-wheeled camper trailer, a rolling box that would tip over on one side, open up, and turn into a tiny shelter. It seems likely that one day I'll build my own teardrop trailer.
