Bike trailer for Scorpion

i have a velotechnik scorpion e bike with a rack. In order to use a trailer i had to purchase an adapter from velotechnik. The adapter comes with a weber hitch. i am having trouble finding a trailer that will connect with the weber hitch. i know there are adapters that will retrofit a weber connect. i am just having a terrible time trying to hitch up a trailer. what trailer to buy and how to connect

Did you find an answer?

With your tadpole, is the rear wheel not compatible with trailers generally designed for traditional bikes? I would hope so, especially considering you have a 26" wheel in back.

I'm only a prospective recumbent owner (the Scorpion is on my shortlist, too), so I can't answer your question. But, I hate to see questions by new members go unanswered. If I were in your shoes, I might call the lone recumbent dealer in my area to ask for advice.

I'm not familiar with the Weber system but it seems all you have to do is pick a trailer that attaches to the rear axle, then replace its coupling with the right size of Weber drawbar connector.

Depending on whether or not you need a trailer with a platform (to carry an animal or small human), I think you might consider the ExtraWheel Trailer. It attaches to a special quick release axle that came with the trailer; you swap out the regular quick release you're using now. The trailer holds a pannier on each side and a trunk bag or tent on the top. It attaches and detaches quickly and easily.
​​​ I like mine very much.
