Yeah if you send me your phone I'll do a demo video for you

To be honest, it works quite well for what it is

There's a really pukka Ziploc bag called the "Zipper" which is the best of the lot. I use a fresh one every time the last shows a bit of wear. I've used a pair of them (doubled) to pack stew for a hike - so I reckon they keep the water out just fine.

I believe it is possible to fabricate your own trailer if a new one is too expensive.
