Bell Lil Rambler Bike Trailer

I am new to recreational biking (havent done it since I was a teen) I also have a 2 year old boy. I was debating between a bike seat and a trailer and decided to get the trailer. I saw that Toys R Us had the Bell Lil Rambler on clearance. I read a few reviews on amazon.com and most were good reviews. I went ahead and bought the trailer (its was 39.98, regular 149.99). Has anyone here used it and if so, your thoughts?

Thanks!

I've got one to haul my dog around in. It's nice and sturdy, and I haven't had any problems with it. I've looked at trailers by Trek and Burley and while they are nice, the only advantage they have is a tiny weight advantage, there's not much difference in design. I bought the bell "Flatblocker" innertubes for it and have never gotten a flat. The trailer is tough as nail, and made of steel, which is cool, because a lot of them get made with aluminum, which I don't think is good for a trailer. The way it hooks onto the rear triangle is nice and simple as well, everyone I know without exception who has owned a BOB trailer has gone through at least one broken skewer.
If you're going to use it as a trailer and not a stroller, be sure to completely remove the attachment for the front wheel. Generally it's out of the way most of the time, but if you attempt a really sharp turn you can seriously take out your back spokes if you leave it on. (Not the removable wheel, but the bolted-on seat for it, ya dig?)
