Bike trailer with these features??

So after getting comfortable with my LO in a bike trailer and now seeing him look miserable while he slept I was wondering if there are bike trailers with these features, and which brands have them. I'm looking for a recline seat for a child to sleep in comfortably, Great fastening buckles, perhaps a harness like seat belt. Shocks as well. After feeling it out with the one I got for a good price, I'm looking to step it up next year and buy a more higher end trailer. Oh, and being a bit taller wouldnt kill me. I also need it to have a stroller conversion kit, because sometimes I need to detach the trailer from my bike and keep my LO in and go in a store or other place because I didnt really think I would have needed a trailer with a stroller conversion kit until I found myself going different places. How does the stroller conversion kit work btw? Does it stay on the bike while I'm riding? I have a double and I can't imagine getting it to fit into the average door or a grocery store, etc, so are their slimmer doubles or perhaps a single with a heavier weight capacity? I dont plan on having any more kids but I do fancy having a 100 weight limit and more room for the LO. Thanks in advance.

You can put a car seat in it. Been done before. But I wouldn't worry about it. The two naps a day go away fast, the one nap a day ends sooner than you'd like as well.

What you want is the Chariot CX1. It meets all of your requirements, with an msrp is $950 or so. The Chariot Cougar 1 is similarly equipped and has an msrp of sub $600.

Is Chariot, Burley, and Joovy the only ones with single trailers that can convert to strollers?

I know it doesn't have the features you're looking for, but my In-Step double trailer is only 32 inches wide, and any modern building is going to have 36 inch wide doors (or wider if double) which are required for wheelchair accessibility by the ADA.

I currently have a double trailer with similar features as the instep. I want something for a single child with stroller capabilities.

Most trailers have stroller kits available. The Burley double trailers are around 31" to 32" wide which will fit through any commercial building door.
