Definitely, no two-wheeled trailers! A few years back we did a short tour with our tandem pulling our Burley trailer with our son in it... very hard going due to the double-track nature of the C&O.

Bring powdered drink mix to make the water from the campsite pumps taste a bit more palatable. Also, fill up on potable water at any and every opportunity so you don't have to rely on the campsite pumps.

Friends of mine have ridden the C&O and the GAP with a tandem pulling a trail-a-bike pulling a Burley two-seater trailer (for camping gear). I think they were nuts, but they made it.
