I used a mastercycle kids trailer for an overnighter loaded with 100lbs of camping gear for the family. It is similiar to Instep. It worked fine. It is wider than the traditional touring trailer. Kids trailers are a little heavier and less aerodynamic. Kids trailers do hold more weight, provide rain protection, and have greater capacity than a touring trailer. If you have a kids trailer and are going on a short trip it should work fine. One benefit is if you put the flag up motorists will give you more room thinking you are pulling kids. Here's some of the specs on kids trailers: https://sites.google.com/site/bicycletrain/trailers

I had one, but it was stolen. 5,000 plus miles on it, no problems.
