    I think you would be much happier with a BOB setup.

    I define them for me. You define them for you. I think of a cargo trailer as something to carry a heavy/oversized load a relatively short distance hopefully on fairly flat ground. I think of a touring trailer as something to carry a reasonable touring load as far as I want to go. But that is just me.

    Not suggesting buying the complete trailer (it appears the op wants to build this). I was meaning the connectors.

    Thank you, I wasn't sure how you were differentiating between the two.

    I posted this link in one of the threads linked to above. I think if I was to use a trailer for touring I think I would go with this one or something like it. I like the design of it best of the touring trailers I've seen. For general cargo use I would go with a two wheeled design.
    Be the person your dog thinks you are.

    My setup for touring. It works very well and will last a very long time.
