Burley D'Lite for touring

I have an old Burley D'Lite vintage trailer I used to haul my kids when they were small. Now that they are teenagers, and my neighbor who borrowed it for her kids who are bigger doesn't need it now, it will soon return to me. Someday I would get back to a longer touring situation, a week or two or longer. Has anyone used these type of trailers used to haul two kids for touring? I know that Burley makes a touring trailer (Nomad), but it seems about the same except it has a low profile. I loved the kid trailer for it seemed to haul the kids without making the bike ride funny. I also liked the burley hitch, rather clever hitch to the frame without all the rigging needed for BOB type trailers. So how about it, any experience out there using the kid haulers for touring?

On the first page of the post your trailer thread, there's a guy who does:

Maybe PM him and see what he says. He seems to like it.
