Aosom VS BOB

I've been looking for a trailer for my cousin to tour with and stumbled upon this brand on Ebay. I've been using a BOB for 12 years so know it's characteristics. Anyone familiar with the Aosom One Wheeled Trailer?

It looks like a BOB knock-off, but it folds. Of course the price is in the basement compared to BOB, but that's not always the best thing either.

I did a Google search and came up with this address ...

Aosom Solo Single-Wheel Bicycle Cargo Bike Trailer

OTOH, I used a Bob Ibex for several long distance tours and while it was great, it was EXPENSIVE to take on a plane. The last time I should have just dumped it in Australia instead of paying for air freight. Now I will tour with reduced stuff (carried too much with the Bob) and maybe make better time. don't get me wrong, the Ibex was an excellent trailer, but culky for shipping.
