Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR TOURING My wife and I recently completed a 4,300-mile ride across the country from Yorktown, VA to Astoria, OR along the TransAmerica Trail. My wife had panniers on her bike and I pulled the Burley Nomad trailer. I ended up pulling 60 pounds total including the trailer itself which included my professional DSLR camera, my 15" MacBook Pro, an iPad, sleeping bags, shower gear, 6 liters of liquids (water and Powerade), etc. The Burley worked flawlessly from coast to coast! Both the camera gear and the MacBook handled the trip without a problem thanks to the Nomad. Pros: Well-made and darn near indestructible! Not a single thing on the trailer broke. Tires still have plenty of tread even after 4,300 miles. The tracking is stable even at speeds of close to 50 mph. Was able to fit much more gear into the trailer than we actually needed. Cons: The only con is that the trail isn't waterproof. The yellow top cover is waterproof. The front, back, sides and bottom are made of a durable material, but it is not waterproof. If the Burley is standing in the rain, it's fine, but when you're riding, the bottom and the front for the most part will get wet. The easy solution for this was to line the inside with a trash bag. We ended up using one trash bag to keep things dry for the entire ride. Lastly, to give you an idea of how durable this trailer is, my wife and I were riding our bikes through a town and I misjudged a curb going about 15 mph. Although I missed it with my bike, the Burley hit the curb with one wheel and flipped. Because of the way the Burley attaches to the bike, within a few feet, it self-righted. I didn't see what happened since the trailer was behind me, but I knew something went wrong. My wife, who was behind me, saw it and couldn't believe how quickly the Burley self-righted. I checked the Burley and couldn't see anything at all wrong with it...not even a scuff on the yellow top! I would HIGHLY recommend this for anyone who is considering a long-haul tour. If I were going to do the cross-country bike ride again, I would definitely use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I mostly use it to carry things to the local airport to work on my plane or go flying. I tow it behind my recumbent Trike and don't even know it's there unless I see it in the rear view mirror. The cover is great also. The two things that I have needed to change are the flag holder and the interior base. The flag base just sticks into a slot in the fabric. The flag is tall and with any cross wind at all it can bend way over into the opposing bike lane and could also whack pedestrians without you even knowing it. I just use the 1/2 length and that is fine as I have a tall flag on the Trike. The bottom of the carrier is just fabric material and I would worry about heavy items tearing a seam and falling through. I just made a cardboard cutout out of the box it arrived in and inserted it in the bottom to provide more support.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some good - Some not so good I did not do any comparison shopping when I bought this Burley trailer because I was happy with the one I bought 26 years ago. Burley changed the hitch which on the old trailer was one of the its strong points. As I have two bikes, switching between them will cost me another $25 dollars to buy an extra hitch or I will be disassembling the rear axle every time. The rack I added for the trailer seems to be of a lower quality. The instructions for mounting it were very poor. The push buttons to extend and lower the rack for accessing the cargo is very poor quality and hard to work at times. The material at the front has already ripped at the corner. It seems to be a stress point that needs reinforcement. I do like the ease of removing the wheels and hitch arm for storage/transporting. The trailer frame seems to be of a higher quality than the rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable holds a lot Bought mine last year for bike camping and grocery shopping. With an extra hitch plate to switch between trikes easily this trailer has already paid for itself just with grocery shopping. Get exercise and do weekly shopping without using the car. Lightweight and parts are replaceable should something break. Low profile is great with recument trikes. Can't see around taller trailers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trailer Have owned this trailer for over a year. Have used it for grocery runs and have had no problem hauling twenty pounds of provisions home. On our recent 200-plus mile C&O trail trip, we found the trailer indestructible. We suffered five flats in five days on our bikes but the trailer came through the experience unscathed. Great product, highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works.... I bought this "newer version" after my "original-American made" one was hit by a "sun blinded drive" & severely broken. (He saw me just before hittling-& braked- only the Nomad hit.) He brought my groceries home- then paid for the new Nomad on Amazon.com ! (I know- "honest folks are hard to came by too!) I like it ok- but miss some of the features not included now. (As: the "full drop" pannels- they were great- when I had my dog-who liked to go for rides ! (Except to the vet- she just tolerated regular check-ups...almost 19 when she passed...) & the "aluminum hitch" (whitch I continue using. The now "steel" hitch is heavier & not nearly as nice looking .). I also would like to see a "stronger & firmer" bottom- so I don't think groceries will come through. (I actually keep a plactic container lid- that's the same size- there-to prevent that too.) I even kept the old wheels & axel harware- just in case-as I don't know about the new model's. They're working fine now- & look nice/simple too. Thanks !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light as a Feather, Tough as a Truck I pedaled my last Nomad to death (May it rest in peace!), and that took me a decade. Now, I am working on my second Nomad, and I can tell already that this one is even tougher and smarter than my last one. Yup -- I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I bought the Burley Nomad so I can haul food and a beverage to have a picnic at the park and some other things as well. I love it a lot.

We have a Honda Gold Wing and I wondered if this could be used with it for long trips?

Asked by: Patty
All Burley trailers are designed for use behind a bicycle with a max suggested speed of 15 mph. They are not compatible with motorcycles.
