More trailer loads

Last week I blogged about the light, but bulky load of boxes I took to the Museum of Art and History in my bike trailer:

There are more boxes here than it might appear, since I filled each box with smaller boxes.

The trailer was made (a long time ago) by John Welch.

Today, I had to replace our live Christmas tree, which died in the past month after being kept alive for about 4 years.  I used the heavy-duty trailer to bring the tree home from the garden center:

This Christmas tree is a little lighter than our old one (smaller pot), but still took 2 people to lift it into or out of the trailer.  I believe that John Welch also made some trailers with a hinged back, for unloading heavy items (like lawnmowers) more easily.

After taking the pictures, I noticed that I had some old photos of another bulky load: a plywood dollhouse that my wife was going to fix up and decorate (we got the dollhouse in 2009, but still haven’t had time to do anything with it):

Bungee cords are important for keeping bulky loads from shifting around.
