I have used my BOB with my Salsa Vaya and have trouble in the elevator at work.

Also, then I have to hook it all back up again which is a pain.
I guess I'm telling you that it ain't easy and I am not sure there is a solution.
I planned a trip using both on Amtrak, but then decided against it because of the hassle. Will go lighter now (no trailer - only back pack) with a folder.
On the move!
