Single wheel trailer for camping gear
Hi, we're new on here! We ride an Orbit Routier and are looking to buy a trailer to carry camping stuff so we can tour the Scottish Islands - does anyone have any recommendations? or 'Don't buy' advice? We're looking for a single wheel trailer, we think attaching to the axle rather than the seatpost.
Thanks! Anna & Greg
Dear Anna and Greg,
After some research and experimenting 3 years ago we went for the Burley Nomad, with the 'roof rack' added.
It's a 2 wheeler. Great stability at speed (max 65kph for us), excellent hitch assembly (avoid the £50 steel variety with a spring), light at 6kg; max load we've had 30kg - no problems ; folds up / disassembles very quickly; easy to wheel in and out of hotels or onto trains as a 'suitcase trailer' if you give up on camping
not waterproof (it doesn't claim to be, so we wrap everything that needs to stay dry - mainly clothing holdalls - in decent bin liners); low clearance of the ground might be a problem if alot of off road, but this is what gives it great stability; price £300+, but you get quality build and components, and with it having done 4,000+km, plus being used for getting to the beach with all that paraphernalia, nothing has broken.
All the best
