Looking to buy a trailer suitable for carrying a toddler around, behind either of our bikes individually, or behind the tandem. My thought is the kid would ride in the trailer until old enough to manage on a trail-a-bike (4ish, maybe?), by which point a younger sibling would probably need to occupy the freed-up trailer seat. I’m still waffling on whether I should choose a single-wide or double.
What are general opinions about design – one wheel or more, attachment style, must-have or to-be-avoided features? Is suspension worth it? We’re not likely to be off-road (when towing a kid, anyway). Is there a standard wheel size? Brands that are good/bad? (Burley seems to be the go-to from what I’ve seen?) Particular models? Any local suggestions that stand out as good/better?
What have you used, and how was your experience with it?
I’m not on a tight budget, so mostly looking for what’s durable and pleasant to use (for us, and kid), although it doesn’t make sense to spend lavishly on something that’s only going to get a few years of use.
PS Forums are back again; hurray! It’s been a long hiatus without a good venue for asking questions like this one.
