Re: Cheap shopping trailer

Burley looks good until you get close
Poorly made and overpriced

Re: Burley Travoy: Thumbs down

REI had a sale and I got one after ogling it for a long time. I have a two wheel trailer and a BOB that work well. I had high hopes for this, and was disappointed. The Burley has mediocre to poor build quality. Looks great at a distance but not up close. Loose wheel bearing/axle mounts ,wobbly insec...

Again , I keep coming back to liability, and insurance issues, as they are making as much of a threat as legislation.
