First loaded trip this morning - a supermarket run.
Fairly heavy load and near full - a weeks supply of catfood (five cats), cartons of juice, wine, beer etc. as well as general groceries - not up to the weight limit but as heavy a load as I'm generally likely to carry.
Reversing out of the parking spot was a little difficult but steering forward was fine. Slight hesitation in tracking when cornering, but I didn't feel the trailer was steering the bike. Downhill was better than expected, but I wouldn't want to risk too much speed.
Part of my road is little more than a gravelled track, which bumped things round a bit (I wouldn't use the trailer off-road), but on smooth pot-hole free tarmac (we have a few short sections!) it ran well. No real hills to climb but fine on a very slight incline.
Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)
