During my tours, I have seen several riders using both the single-wheeled touring trailer and the child carriers. Most everyone using the single-wheeled trailer liked them, their only complaint was having to disconnect sometimes for stairs etc. Child carrier comments were about shoulderless roadways, headwind drag (a big one), and because they had more room, taking too much stuff with them (weight). I would caution anyone using trailers not to get carried away when ripping down steep long grades.....I have seen a couple of bad accidents from cyclists losing control and spilling everything, including themselves, all over the highway. Fortunately, no vehicles were coming.
