Amberwolf .... Something like this maybe ... 36 volts of lead acid weight might be good for something after all ... thanks for the advice Bill
Sort of, but more like the BOB trailers shown here and there in this thread, including the post between your response and this one of mine. That puts the load between the hitch (all parts of it's pivoting sections) and the tire.

A random web-find from Dogman as an example of a push trailer. SLA battery and a brushed TNC motor on a BMX.

Really? 4 pages of posts and no one mentioned the motobob? Maybe they did and i missed it.

A failed venture to motorize a popular non powered bike trailer:

I did this as my first ever electric project.

Was a great learning experience. I learned about AC 3 phase motors and Variable Frequency Drives (VFD's)

Turnigy 80-84-170 using 10S (37V) LiPo (5S X two), interesting that he runs the motor through a centrifugal Kart clutch.
