Any veteran baby wearer have suggestions for an inexpensive, probably homemade carrying solution for a preschooler? My DD is no longer comfy in the Ergo, and I want something I can pack with us for hikes.

I really like using 2.5 yards of cotton gauze or a sarong in a in a strapless back torso carry (I always call it an African Carry) like in this video.  I knot the fabric above my bust and below my bust.  I carried my son this way through my daughters pregnancy up to 38 weeks, and he was two at the time.  Here's a pic of us when I was at 38 weeks:

How does it keep from slipping down without straps? Are your breasts all that holds the sarong up?

Yes, it's all boob-powered.  My husband tried this carry and it didn't work for him.  He's not really good at tying tightly, though, so that might be the problem.
