The trailers frame is very well constructed and sturdy. The fabric enclosing the frame is also rugged.The zippers which secure the top are good. There is very little assembly with no tools required.Just loosen up the quick release for your bike's rear tire and mount the front hitch and then attach the towing bar to that hitch and the one on the trailer using the provided pins which have spring clips to keep them in place.

Oh, and air up the tires and pop the wheels onto the trailer. Yeah, about the tires... This is what makes an otherwise great product not quite so great. I guess it's also why they can sell it fort such a reasonable price. These are the thinnest, cheapest crap tires and inner tubes, like something for a kid's toy you'd expect to be worn out just a few days after Christmas. Although aired properly to the recommended pressure (30 to 40 pounds) one blew out within a week just sitting on the patio and the other one was already half flat from a leaky valve.

However, since the rest of the trailer is of good quality and the price was so low, it was worth it to me to invest in a pair of REAL tires and inner tubes so I could put the trailer to practical use for the purpose intended - the occasional jaunt to the grocery store.

The tires and inner tubes are standard 16 inch size available at most bike shops.

I would have replaced the plastic wheels with standard metal ones too, but the wheels are not standard. They have a quick release thing built into the hub which snaps onto the bike sort of like a socket wrench onto a ratchet. So you can't mount regular bike wheels on the trailer.

But the plastic wheels are of pretty good quality and rugged, so, after 4 months of occasional use, they are still holding up okay.

This is a solid built well designed trailer. I love that you hardly notice it when pulling.
Shipping was fast and the assembly was extremely easy.

We bought our trailer early in 2012. We use it a lot & it's still going strong. We primarily use it during 5-10 mile city road/trail trips to & from the grocery store, Costco etc. It worked great on a Rails-to-Trails 60+ mile ride fully loaded with overnight gear. We put our beach chairs, blankets/towels & picnic in for several date-nights at our local Music or Movies in the Park. We've dropped off 2 medium sized outdoor hanging potted plants at the in-laws for plant sitting a few times & have run several other errands using this trailer on our bikes. Although it's probably not recommended by the manufacturer we've even used it to drop off the dog at the groomer (We put the kennel on top of the zipper compartment & bungeed it to the trailer frame.).
It's easy to take into Target/Costco/Grocery store to use as a cart to keep purchases in line with available room. We love the ease of either zipping in our cargo or stacking & using bungees. (People do smile/giggle when we bike past with a load of Costco goods topped off with toilet paper.)
We bought a 2nd adapter so it can easily move from one bike to the other.
The only thing that we've worn out is the floorboard of the trailer but we use it a ton & we have carried 50 pound bag of dog food + other supplies or other heavy loads that probably push the 70lb recommendation so I won't imply that it is in any way shape or form due to poor quality. We will be adapting soe support as this is not a item listed on the [...] site.
Based on how happy we've been with our trailer, we also purchased the portable carrier from Allen Sports.

The shipping was fast. The trailer was easy to put together. I did have some issue attaching my wheel skewer to the hitch, so I bought a longer one and that worked fine. I have use the trailer to go camping with and shop and so far it has worked great. You do have to remember that the trailer is attached so you don't try to turn to sharply because the hitch will bind up. I have not used it in rain yet so can't say anything about if it keeps your stuff dry. That said all and all it dose everything I need, it will get it's first major test this fall when I take it on a two week tour. The one thing I wish it had was a easier way to attach a flag to it, just cause it red I don't feel like drivers can see it well enough, so I attached a flag with some cable ties, it works.

The trailer was delivered as stated, and was easy to assemble. I have been cycling to work for a few weeks, and it so much easier to carry files,supplies and my lunch in the trailer than using messenger bag. Highly recommend the purchase!

I use this trailer to haul my gear to work for business trips. It is sturdy and pulls nicely. It has eyelets to bungee items on top for extra capacity. Very easy to attach and detach. Wheels have sealed bearings and come off by pushing a release on the hub. My only issue was with the tubes bursting at the seams and the tire bead coming loose. This was with the recommended 30 psi. I purchased different tubes and used liquid tape on one of the rims to keep the the tubes from pushing the tire bead off the rim. Now all is good!
