Here is the option I chose for hauling stuff around: http://www.amazon.com/foldable-bicycle-trailer-carrier-0016BL/dp/B00E7J0ML2/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1405745994&sr=8-18&keywords=bike trailers

Modifications: I did have to weld two nuts back to back in order to attach the trailer to the rear axle. Then, I put kevlar strips into the tires and slimed the tubes, and finally I replaced the weak and flimsy plastic floor of the trailer with a heavier duty pressed fiber board from Home Depot. (used the original as a template).

Smart choice Calvin.
This can replace your car 80%.
I did look into this but the rear axle thread on my bike is bigger than the standard hitch, so I finally settled on some Burley trailer.

Perfect if you want to go beach with all the gears, tent and food :)
