My new car: Burley Nomad

I've been car-free for about 8 months now and figure it's finally time to get a "substitute-car" for the bulk dog food, groceries, and what have you. I ordered this http://www.bicycletrailers.com/Burley-Cargo-Nomad.pro today after spending a couple hours driving around and comparing it to the B.O.B.. I still have a soft spot for the B.O.B, but the two wheel design, 100 lbs rated load, and easily detachable swivel mount seemed to make more sense for a strictly hauling around the city point of view (I tour with panniers). This thread also swayed me, Burley Nomad cargo trailer--a review. I dont know why I'm feeling anxious about not getting the B.O.B and wondering if I made the right decision. I may have to get both and hide the second from the wife. I'll update once it gets here, and if anyone has any encouragine remarks about the Nomad to ease my buyer's remorse do add.

I think you'll really like your Nomad. I have the Solo and the Flatbed. The Flatbed I've had for about three years and for a while I was pulling it almost daily. It's been a great trailer.

In fact it got to the point where, when I went to pannniers for most of my daily trips, the bike felt weird without the trailer behind it.
