    Anyone own the following single trailers??

    Burley Solo, Joovy Cocoon, Avenir Solo, or a Chariot. I want to know how is the recline on the solo and on the chariot. I'm guessing it would be the chariot cheetah (whichever one is the lower range.) I really would like my son to enjoy his naps in the trailer. He looks like a rag doll in my double trailer. It doesn't recline. I want to know or see pictures if you have of it in recline mode. I'm eyeballing the first two trailers especially, but the Joovy doesnt recline to my knowledge. I like the fact the Burley can recline, but not feeling the 16 inch wheels while all the others give 20 inch wheels. Is the recline worth the smaller wheels on the Burley? Can I buy bigger wheels at a bike store or are they special wheels for a trailer? Thanks.

    Before 'the take over' the Burly CoOp used 20" wheels ,
    now they are privatized, another off shore manufacturer in the Philippines ..

    if you rebuild the wheels they can be 20", nothing against changing things you own.

    I have a Chariot CX1. The seat does not actively recline but is in a naturally reclining position. My child has been riding it for well over 3 years and does not seem to have any issues whatsoever sleeping back there. I encourage you to visit your LBS to see the differences in the carriers, side-by-side.
