Camping AND exercise



Probably been seen before, but worth recycling.... (I hope it's fiberglass!)

Thinking the trailer is more high tech than the bike. Sure would be a workout getting that rig in motion.

Hmmmm... I don't know the towing and hitch weights for a Schwinn, but both of the TV's tires sure look like they are in trouble.

Maybe it's also a question of "Seat Weight Limits" as well LOL

He's exceeded the GCVWR by a substantial amount, so he's bound to eventually crash and burn; his insurance will deny the claim, and he'll get prosecuted to boot!

When I camp, I usually end up getting way more exercise than usual. I hike trails, bike around the campground, etc. I'd never have enough energy left over to tow my trailer besides all that!

He'll (?) probably get run over by one of California's infamous hit-and-run drivers. But not to worry about insurance, the perp/driver won't have any, much less a license, and he will be able to, and will, run very fast after the accident.

Looks like he can only make left turns too.

But it does look aerodynamically correct for Santa Ana side wind gusts. From one side anyway.

I think he is OK.

Tow limits are rated much higher for Schwinns that are sold in Europe. It is a conspiracy of the bureaucrats and lawyers in the U.S. to get us all to upgrade to 10 speed road bikes.

He does need to upgrade to 2-wheel drive.

Didn't get a picture..but last week I did see a 3 wheel adult bike pulling one of those kid carts that he had converted to a trailer.Looked like he had all his camping gear in it and even had a beach umbrella to use as an awning. Oh he even had a footlocker type storage box in his basket.

Will say it looked like he had exceeded his tow limit,he was on flat ground,but would sure not want to peddle his rig up hill.

Ya, but I don't think he has trailer brakes..... just looking for trouble.
