I bough this trailer for both gravel road and pavement tours. So far, excellent! Tows easy, fit and finish is excellent. Waterproof bag is also well done. The only thing about trailers is that they can easily be overloaded. Because of the large volume available, it's easy to throw in extras.

Pros: Tows easily, great fit and finish.

Cons: CST tire. I will see how long it lasts.

For that "steel is real" crowd.

This empty STEEL trailer actually weighs close to 18 pounds on a digital scale with its plastic cargo bag. At first I assumed lower rolling resistance would compensate to balance this out. It does not. Why in the world add an additional 8 pounds I have to pull to an appropriate 4 pannier set up that's easier to load, ride with, and keep organized? Duh!
The day I gave in and quit acting stupid with this trailer is the day I also stopped dreading real world rest stops in auto centric environs requiring parking this thing. I hope the new owner enjoys it.

Pros: You barely notice one tires rolling resistance on flats or with tailwinds. The one hole approach to cargo is great once you get it memorized.

Cons: Parking your rig with it attached. Absolute nightmare. Under 40 lbs load is fairly negotiable, more is dreadful when climbing. The steel attachment yolk is inflexible offering soft tissues no fore-aft pseudo suspension as is the case with Burlys ingenious flex yolk. You might consider fresh garlic and chamois butter for anything over a few days! Bob can be a long term pain in the arse.

I've used heavier, two-wheeled cargo trailers in the past so it was a welcome relief when I hitched this to my bike. It's light weight and handles really well. I rode it from Portland to the Coast and it held everything I needed with room to spare. I prefer trailers to panniers and this is the trailer to get. It can be a hassle if you need something from the bag while riding because you have to pull over, unstrap and unfold the bag, and dig around for what you need. I'd recommend getting some type of handlebar bag or saddle bag to store anything you might need during the ride. Also, this descends really well. I've hit 40+ with this on the back and hardly noticed it. I wouldn't recommend doing this but it can be done without it getting wobbly.

The hitch is really easy to use; however, after a year the skewer became bent. I was able to straighten it out.


Pros: weight, engineering,

Cons: weak skewer, price

solid stoller

I used this for a self supported 100 mile bike-packing trip on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the White Rim trail in the Canyonlands NP. It performed great. Solid construction. Can handle abuse like no other. The wheel tracks exactly with your rear wheel. The key is not to load too high. Either have your water stashed away or rely on rivers/streams. When you're braking going down a hill, use your rear brake as the main one (not your front) and keep your speed down. It's easy to start fish tailing with this guy.

Pros: solid build, versatile, easy to take care, tracks with your rear wheel. Can use to carry your groceries home.

Cons: none
