A car seat was used by a car-free friend (decades ago) attached to the deck of their bike trailer ..
[yea, 1 year + is usually suggested]
as far as hitching a trailer to a Brompton , a lot of 2 wheel trailers use a fitting that the left axle nut holds on.
Chariot bike trailers, (now owned by Thule) use a ball lolly elasatomer in a stainless metal socket .
See : Thule Chariot Carrier Parts | Bike Kid Shop | Bike Kid
I have that hitch on my Carry Freedom City, with a Brompton because the ball is free to rotate in the hitch socket
and so It allows the fold under of the rear wheel to function as usual , as it's kickstand.
more trailers maybe fine , but the rear wheel fold cannot happen Burly has a pin to pivot horizontally .
the elastomer flexes when you lean the bike into turns , but has its limits , then you unhook the trailer ..
so keyvin, you put off on the low end Allen, and Instep trailers,you asked about earlier ..?
