what are your thoughts on the croozer 535 bike trailer?

I'm eyeing this one since I don't like the long arm sticking out on the burley trailer while in stroller mode. I don't want to spend $$$ on chariot one ( love it though, but can't get everything when your a sahm), but the price is stopping us. So anyone have any feedback on the croozer 535? SHould I get it or not worth it?

It looks nice enough. I have never seen one, and do not recall any experiences written here. But my mind is no longer sharp and I did not try the search function . It is up there in cost with the other trailers (~$375). If you need to save money, used is a great way to go. Craigslist is my favorite because you can see before you buy.

I think I have seen a trailer in stroller mode maybe twice. Except for my neighbor that has an instep trailer that has never used it as a trailer, lol. Although, neither he nor his wife are into biking.

If you really need it as a stroller then the croozer seems like it will fit your criteria. Otherwise, if you can wait, see if a used Chariot (or some other trailer) pops up on Craigslist or ebay.

I wrote a small review a few months ago. Croozer 535 trailer

I still love the trailer, and so do my girls. I haven't had any troubles with it at all.

On ours you can just slide that back in. I greased it by rubbing a candle on it so it slides a little better.

my wife and I bought the 737 single seat last year and havent looked back
Its great in stroller mode and good on the bike
I have no real issues with the wieght of the trailer and kid but cant imagine doubling it
Remember just cause an area is bike friendly doesnt mean trailer freindly
I've had to get it up a flight of stairs and over fences were it wont fit through the small gate
over all its helped bring the family closer together and highly recomend one
