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!
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….
