The overhead cover fits really tight, too snug for me. It's a bit of a hassle, so I just prefer to leave it off, uncovered. But the trailer bottom is solid hard black plastic, and it seems strong enough to hold any load within reasonable limits. I would not put 100 pounds in it, but I put about 65 pounds and pulled it with my bike up and down hills here in town and it went real smooth. Just don't go too fast because a crash would be really nasty. Have good brakes, and use them often applying the pressure gradually. The key is just don't go too fast, as the saying goes, speed kills.
But the trailer rides smooth. If you hit a bump, it will bounce and clang a little but that is to be expected. The tires are nice and absorb some of the shock at 35 pounds. You might put 40 if you want. The spokes are beefy, the rims seems beefy, but the hubs are just a shaft. However I am guessing this will last a long time, because the steel frame is heavy duty, looks well made, yet the whole thing is pretty light. I can easily pick up the whole trailer with one hand.
The hitch adapter is sweet because you can leave that on the bike and take the trailer off easily. What is extra sweet is there is a spring in the hitch, and that allows for some play for the trailer to move or give a little while in motion. It's not just a solid hitch bolted to the back of the bike as one rigid unit. The bike and the trailer allow each other to have some give independently. It rolls smooth and it is centered nicely, not lopsided, and pretty level on my bike which has 27-1-1/4 tires.
I rotated the adapter down to the lowest possible position, so the hook up to the trailer hitch allowed for a pretty level trailer in transit. I use quick release wheels and this was no problem. There is also a little metal stop on one of the washers which fits into a open crevice on my Schwinn frame, and that insures that the adapter does not move out of it's original position, but stays firmly in place.
The only other thing is to make sure you give it a wide berth when turning corners or you are liable to scrap a car fender, or dip into a pot hole or shoulder. You must allow for a nice wide turning radius, or else you could get into a bind. It just takes some patient and some practice. You got to remember you got this long arcing thing towed behind your bike, so the dare devil caution thrown to the wind kind of riding days are over.
You have to stay on top of things. Otherwise it's very cool for groceries, or anything else that fits in a 2x2 box space which isn't over 80 pounds limit although it says 100 pounds. I would prefer not to push it over 75 pounds. But enjoy! Very cool! At least the folks in Denmark would think so!
The biggest thing I have towed on the trailer was an empty kennel for a Great Dane . Fortunately the center of gravity was low enough because it was not that heavy, probably about 30 pounds, and i was taking it less than a half a mile across the studio lot. I put a ratchet strap around the kennel and the trailer, and because the kennel was so wide the strap tended to rub on the tires. I couldn't use the tie downs in the floor of the trailer with that load.
I've had about 130 pounds of weight in the trailer (theatrical sandbags) and it did okay, but that is more than the manufacturer recommends.
I paid about $80 for the trailer and felt that was about the right price.
Pulls nicely, hard to complain for $70..
In use it turns very well, and the coupler moves too so if you fall or if your bike falls while you are off it, nothing bends out of shape. There is a nifty flag i had to super glue to the pole so that it would not fly off, but nothing too hard to fix really.
all in all it is a great product and i will be using this if I go camping nearby or need to get something that it can carry
