I have a recumbent, short wheel base, under seat steering, 20 front and 26 rear tire and used BOB with it and it worked quite well. I have other friends that have done the same and logged many many miles on tours with a Bob. Makes a great kickstand if you jackknife the bike with bob too. My only objection with BOB is it's ability to carry too much stuff. That's mostly my fault for wanting to fill the space! BOb trails great and if you did not see it in your mirror you tend to forget it is there. No stability problems with my recumbent (similar to Vision).
oh and the BoB is designed for 70 lbs and why would anybody want to carry that much crap is beyond me. weight is weight whether it's on your bike, on your back on on a trailer.
Less is More should be your mantra for touring. Trailers were designed to carry, efficiently, the gear you must take, not the carte blance to carry everything on the planet.
