Yup, most trailer hitches will work with folding bikes. Wike and Burley will work for sure.
Besides getting hit by a car, I've found child seats can complicate the fold of folding bikes; for Dahon, this might mean a wider fold to accommodate the rack. On the other hand, even though modern trailers fold for easy transportation, they can still be a PITA to transport around or store if you're tight on space. But I agree: trailer for maximum peace of mind, esp. when it's windy or raining for that matter (got my son sick a couple times because he was in a child seat exposed to the cold, windy air).
