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?)
