    Good trailers are expensive, but they hold their value so if you get one second hand you should be able to re-sell it with minimal loss. I've used a Croozer and a Burley - both highly recommended. They have loads of boot space and protect the kids from the weather, so have advantages over a child seat. The stroller attachments are handy if e.g. you are cycling to the shops and your child has fallen asleep.

    We used the trailers from age 6 months up to 5 years. I've stopped now as the two kids (age 3 and 5) were getting too big to fit in the Burley and the weight was getting too much for their old dad.

    The same age as my two are now but we're planning one last big run this July from Belfast to Dublin to Holyhead to Chester in the trailer before the double Croozer bows out. The hills sure get tougher every year that passes! Precious memories though.

    Nice! I have a micro tour planned for next weekend - taking my younger daughter camping for the night. I hope to fit all the gear on the WeeHoo in the picture above, but if not it will be back to the Burley for the final time.

    Yes, packing is a challenge but one I enjoy. I've been keeping an eye out for a WeeHoo too to progress to. So far I've just picked up a trailgator in the meantime.
