I picked up the Tail Wagon this weekend while visiting my brother and sister in-law in Manchester and I’m chuffed to bits to finally have my hands on it!
My sister-in-law decided to check out the comfort rating and was pleasantly surprised.
Since getting him home I’ve sprayed him with some NikWax waterproofing potion and sewn him a fetching green coat so that overnight showers and rainy days won’t bother us. (Wet dog in a tent anyone? No thanks.)
I used bright green Nylon Ripstop from my local material place, did sort of foldy over waterproof seams (which I will seal with heat sealing tape when I have some) and used shock cord and webbing to make fastening loops. I also put a window in so Scout can look at me from her snug, waterproof throne as I pedal through the driving rain. Hmmmm.
I still need to explore some sun-proofing options. Something temporary (thinking magnets or Velcro) that can move around from the top to the sides depending on the time of day and direction of travel. Watch this space….

Wow! Looking very ….. green 😀
Darn cool looking! Good job on the seeing & fitting, quite the talented lady you are 💚Amazing space inside based on the pic of s-i-l. Besides Scout and some type of blanket, what else will be in the trailer? Where is the rest of your kit going?
Damn autocorrect! Sewing!
That looks great. Scout is a very lucky girl. I’m impressed with your diy skills. No end to your talent x
This is really happening isn’t it !
There really is no end to your talent! That is fantastic.Scout is one lucky pupper! 🐶🐾
Looking good. Hopefully you won’t have any of those cloud bursts we bad today.
Burley looks great and light to pull. Re sunshades: Halfords(and no doubt others) do some cling sunshades and roller sunshades that you may be able to adapt for the sides and top.
