I got this item as a gift, and it is basically sound in a strict engineering sense, but there are two design flaws that caused me to give the low rating. The first isn't necessarily a big deal for you, but the canopy part of the trailer is a part of the basic assembly, so it isn't possible without a goodly amount of effort to convert this from a kid hauler to a cargo hauler. The second is a deal-killer; the hitch assembly is terrible. Firstly, the fact that one has to physically remove the nut from one's rear wheel and reattach the nut means that switching this item out automatically requires a ratchet or two and time spent getting hands dirty. What a pain. Even worse, the lousy geometry of the hitch itself is incompatible with a rear rack on every bicycle I've tried -- the hitch, a big honking piece of metal, can't fit between the axle and the edge of my rack. Worse, the hitch is so heavy that any attempt to jury-rig a connection generally results in some pretty serious scratching and denting on your nice frame. I ended up (finally) hitting on the solution of removing the hitch and creating my own DIY solution. Overall, conversion between the item's different modes (cargo, trailer, stroller, storage) is arduous. I would recommend a different product which substituted some work on the designer's part for work on your part.
