Sturdy, Inexpensive and Functional

"I bought this item in the Costco warehouse about two years ago. It is roomy enough for two children under 6 years old, however larger/older children will not fit in it. The hitch (attaches the trailer to the bicycle) works well, but takes time to attach and detach from the bike. The frame is sturdy and the wheels are robust. The trailer doesn't "slow you down" too much. The storage space is quite large, and can accommodate lunch boxes, jackets, toys, etc.
My wife routinely uses it for picking up our 3-year old and 5-year old daughters from daycare. I've used it when taking the girls on longer trips."

Don't buy this

Pros: good price, good storage
Cons: terrible hitch, plastic vinyl stinks toxic, no suspensions
"Bought this last year. AT first, thought it worked great. Until the the grip of the hitch rotated and started to slide from the bike frame. Terrible hitch design. Plus, having no suspensions, it's quite a bumpy ride for the kids if u go on a long trip. Ended up returning it and bought a chariot instead. Wouldn't be so bad if the hitch was better. And it scratched my brand new bike. Not worth the savings."

You get what you pay for

Pros: lightweight easy to assemble
Cons: hitch is terrible
"We have had this trailer for about a month and have used it approx 5 times. We choose this trailer over several others as it was cheaper (yep, that was a mistake). The problem we are encountering is the trailer mount to the bike. It is poorly engineered and difficult to install. On three occasions, it slipped off only to be saved by the safety strap. It takes an incredible amount of strength to get it tight enough so it will stay. Needless to say it is being returned."

Stroller Conversion Kit

Cons: no stroller/jogger conversion kit
"No complaints about the trailer, works fine for us, have had no issues. However, now we want to use it as a jogger but I cannot find a stroller conversion kit for it anywhere. My neighbour has another model (different colour) but looks exactly the same that came with a conversion kit - all the peices fit perfectly on the this one from Costco - so we know the parts exists out there somewhere... does anyone know where to buy a stroller conversion kit for this bike trailer?"

Best purchase ever

"Lightweight, easy to assembly, I remove the wheels and store the whole thing in my apartment, in storage... it takes one sec to put the wheels back on, get the helmets on and go.
My toddler is really happy in it. Storage behind the baby is huge.
The netting keeps baby safe from bugs and leaves.
