I haven't packed it yet but I've talked to a lot of Friday owners that started with the Carlton or Oyster 29 and now have this case, the F'Lite 31. They say there's a bit more room.
I actually bought a different case just because I didn't want a black trailer. In the shadows of trees on the side of the road I want a color that doesn't blend in with those shadows. It is kinda cool that the blue is that close to Bike Friday's blue.
I think the red case is a good match for BF Flag Red too.
I did already have the BF trailer and so far like the way it works. They sell narrower trailer bases and probably all the bits needed to make them work with other bikes. I haven't looked into that though.

I'm not sure of what other trailers would work for what you speak of. The BF trailer breaks down for packing very nicely.
Good luck finding what you need.

Nice how it almost matches the bike! I presume you had the original Bike Friday trailer? I've been wonder which other trailer bases I could combine with a suitcase to make a non-BF travel trailer...
