I just bought a trail-a-bike on Craigslist. The whole thing looks barely used, the hitch seems to be in like-new shape and I installed it according to the manual (I think).
The problem is that my son is terrified to ride it because there is a lateral wobble when he gets on/off ... maybe a couple of inches of side to side "play" if you were measuring it from his seat (even though my bike is not moving).
Can someone who has one of these things tell me: is this wobble normal, or is the trailer supposed to be rock-solid (other than the turning rotation)? If so, what can I do to get it solid? I keep telling my guy there is no way he can fall over, which is true, but he's still nervous because unused to the movement.
