With versatility like a pickup truck, but none of the gas, Burley's Flatbed trailer will change the way you approach errands. This 14-pound cargo trailer is made from light aluminum and can hold a full 100 pounds of whatever you need to haul around. The tough PCV Skin material stands up to 2x4s and furniture without adding weight. The foldable design and quick-release wheels make it easy to store when not in use, and it uses the same hitch as Burley's child trailers, making it simple to swap from trailer to trailer.

5 Stars All Day Long

About Me

Comments:

I use my bike to commute and from time to time I have to carry more than my luggage will allow. The cargo trailer is super easy to attach to my bike and easily carries the 73 pounds of gear I have to tote around. My only real complaint is that the floor is the same flexible material as the sides. When I load the trailer up, I have to use a couple of ratchet straps to secure everything for the trip. Since my cargo tends to bounce around a bit due to the flexible floor material, sometimes the straps come undone. Nothing has fallen off, but it is a little worrisome. I plan to remedy this with a few wooden slats across the frame and all should be good. Overall, I'm very happy with this trailer and hope to get many, many miles out of it.

Worked well, went to OBX/Beach and used it to cart beach chairs and coolers and everything you need for the beach. Worked like a charm.

Very Happy

About Me

Comments:

Bought this trailer to transport kids backpacks to school in the morning, and to take their bikes (2 of them) home after drop off. Works well. Looked at several other options (i.e. Nashbar), but settled on this one for size despite being fairly costly. Super easy to assemble, and I really like the connection to my bike. Very easy to maneuver. The metal rails are scratched very easily, but I don't think that impacts anything. I use some bungee cords to tie everything down. Have put the RTIC cooler on it as well for grocery store trips, and it all seems to work well.

Ideal load carrier for extended bike trips

Comments:

It was a choice between single hub or single axle. So glad I picked a trailer with it's own set of wheels. Able to carrier large weights without impact on balance and easily disconnected

Excellent Solution!

About Me

Comments:

We bought this trailer because we were going to an island for a week without a car and we needed to be able to pack a lot more than would fit into our bike panniers. This flatbed trailer was perfect for us and the price was reasonable as well. We packed about 100lbs onto the trailer and we were able to pull it along for the 10 miles to our cabin and then back to the ferry, no problem. It folds up easily as well, when we wanted to get it out of the way.

Great lightweight trailer

By

About Me

Comments:

This is the lightest trailer you can currently buy for your bike, once you factor in the features of the side rails; add two 8' tiedowns and your around 13 pounds. I was worried about it being a fabric bottom, but it has held up dragging it over the briars through the woods. It is light enough to unhook and lift over obstacles with your gear still inside. The side rails are important to lash everything in securely, and I have carried 130 pounds with no problems. The whole thing packs down flat and stores nicely on top of a kayak. Things that could be better...I placed ducktape patches on the underside, between the mounts that hold the axle assembly, and the cloth material of the bottom of the trailer, to prevent wear at its greatest point. The hitch functions great, but a redesign with a ball hitch will pivot better for being pinched in between steep hills; this way the rubber hitch will not flex and break. Also, it needs a flag on the left side; the side closest to traffic passing you; so the constantly distracted drivers will see it flapping away. Now, offer it in a titanium version that weighs 6 pounds, for $400, and you will rule the bike trailer industry for awhile to come. Please ship me one for the idea. :)

    Comments:

    My son's school bus stop is 5 miles from home. So how does one fetch him and his computer-laden backpack from the bus without a car? With a Burley flat-bed trailer and a folding bike. The trailer is easy to attach to my bike, rides smoothly, and carries the folding bike easily. I do put a beach towel on the flat bed because the ride is bumpy. I don't want a bouncing bike to puncture the flat bed. I simply use bungee cords to keep the folding bike in place as I ride to the bus stop. I use the same bungees to carry the heavy backpack home. It's win-win-win-win. He gets home without walking 5 miles, I use no gasoline, I get 10 miles' worth of exercise and he gets 5. I haven't used it for grocery shopping yet because I haven't figure out how to lock it at the store. But I wouldn't hesitate to use it to bring a bulky or heavy item to work.

      I have had this trailer for about 5 years and it has hauled everything from hunting gear, groceries, fertalizer, and even bikes to the repair shop. It's a flat bed and you have to provide something for stuff to stay in a big rubber maid container for groceries, half an old large dog carrier for other stuff, and I cut the material in the front and use a yakama car rack to transport bikes.

      I over us this product and it keeps on working! I ride a recumbent trike and even though this trailers sits a bit higher than my GreenSpeed it seems to get the job done.
