I think the BOB YAK trailer is very popular. It costs around $300.

Yet this one is less than $80: https://www.aosom.com/sporting-goods...QaArPtEALw_wcB

Is BOB that much better? Have you used any other one that's decent but relatively cheap?

For around town, I like using a used kid's trailer. But have been thinking about taking a BOB trailer (purchased used) out for a longer road trip.
