There have been quite a few topics regarding using panniers for transporting gear on a self contained ride or tour. But has anyone ever used a trailer? I'm recently in the process of purchasing a B.O.B. Yak Plus trailer from my LBS. It will be towed using my Vision R40. With the bike and trailer combined it will be over 10 feet long. The trailer is designed to haul 75 pounds of weight. I will never need more then that and more the likely a lot less. I can put panniers on my Vision. Even on the front despite the 20" wheel. But after considering it I figured out that a trailer is best with a recumbent because you can haul more if you need to.
Anyone else ever use any of the B.O.B. trailers? Likes dislikes about them? Pros and cons of using a trailer versus panniers?
Your opinions, thoughts, and suggestions please.
