Disadvantages of a hiking trailer

Hiking trailers do not help in all terrains. When you come across steps, gates, fences, and very rocky terrain etc. hiking trailers can be awkward. But there are hiking trailers out there that you can carry on your back.

Bicycle trailers

If you’re thinking of taking a bicycle on your trek, you may consider attaching a bike trailer, to carry all of your equipment. This trailer can be attached to your bike or you can pull this along, I have one of these and find it very good for pulling all of my equipment around on my treks. And if your tent is big enough, you can put the trailer in your tent. The wheels are quick release.

Types of hiking trailers

There are a lot of different hiking trailers out there. Hiking trailers upon purchase, can be adapted to suit your needs. I adapted mine so that the handle can be removed, I added suspension and bicycle lights should night time set in before you have found somewhere to pitch your tent. I also added a lockable lid for safety, and attached my trekking poles to each side. It has a bracket on top, to fix my top box to for extra storage, and a bracket for my solar charger, it also has bigger 20″ wheels which are quick release, all trailers come with quick release wheels. You can adapt these trailers to your needs and what you are using them for.

These trailers will NOT fit into a one man tent for obvious reasons when dismantled, but they will fit into a two-man tent and up, when dismantled, for piece of mind.
