I assume I need to get the 'alternative hitch'? Just got the d'lite today (REI dividends rule.) and forgot to mention my mtb has disc brakes.... got it home and was like "Hmm....this ain't gonna work" I guess I COULD pull it with my road bike... but I don't really want to.. since the place we will probably be taking it the most (a city park near here) while having paved trails, they aren't the smoothest in the world.. :)
Can't wait to tow it around though...

Looking at its design, I would prefer the alternative hitch.
I have a 2000 Charriot with the new 2003 hitch which is similar to the Burley's alternative hitch, and I consider it preferable on almost all counts.
1. quicker to install
2. more stable than a traditional single-arm hitch and comparable to Burley's traditional hitch
3. doesn't marr the paint
4. won' interfere with your feet.
5. takes less storage room.
The only downside is that if you use the trailer with more than one bike, you either need to transfer an attachment from bike to bike, or get more than one.
