Trailers, tubeless, and you

Hello. I'm looking for some information on tubeless compatible trailer rim/tire combos.

For my needs - dirt road touring and a little groomed non-tech singletrack bikepacking (Think White Rim Road Canyonlands type stuff). BOB Yak / BOB Ibex and similar single wheel flatbed designs are piquing my interest, but not married to the brand. Reason being the included dry bag and nice strong platform to carry large oblong objects like water gallons, firewood and such. Not really interested in extra wheel rack/pannier systems or two wheel designs; need low profile.

My location in cactus country means tubeless has eliminated nearly all flats. I'd like to do the same with a trailer. Never heard of a tubeless ready 16" tire. Not that they aren't out there (?). I've converted plenty of non-tubeless ready tires to tubeless but I'd rather avoid that fiasco.

So, any community input on opinion of BOB trailers or similar - specifically any experience running them tubeless? Any links you can send me to for info on if it was done successfully in the past. I find nothing about this on the forums or google... Thanks!

I have a pair of Tannus tires on my winter commuter. A little odd, but no flats. I've been considering putting some on my primary trailer too, so I don't get stuck somewhere.

You will have to measure your rim width, and make sure tire width is at least close.

They should come in most sizes, except some of the small-narrow sizes.

I don't know if you solved your problem but in the meantime you can try those Rinodillo's/Mr. Tuffy liners. They don't make it for 16 inch tires but I don't see cutting them to size would be a problem. Just make sure there's no sharp edges from cutting. It's better than nothing.
