rails to trails touring trailer: Burley Nomad Vs. Croozer Cargo?

So I'm considering planning a MTB tour of the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) which spans from Pittsburgh, PA to Cumberland, MD. Roughly 140 miles each way on rail to trail type road (crushed limestone/gravel), max grade of 1.5% (average <1%).

They have a catered tour for this ride, but they only ride one direction over 5 days, so roughly 30-40 miles a day.

I would rather plan it out on my own and be responsible for my own camping gear etc and do the entire ride over a long 3-day-weekend (roughly 90 miles a day). So herein lies my question: Which touring trailer would you best recommend?

I would love to get away with the Croozer Cargo @ ~$160 vs. the Burley Nomad @~$260.

Any advice/experience with similar terrain?
