Burley Travoy maneuverability

The Burley Travoy bike trailer maneuvers quite nicely. Sorry I don’t actually show the Travoy trailer hopping the curb — but I assure you the trailer’s tires handle it just fine. More bike stuff below the video.

I transported a bicycle on the back of the Burley Travoy yesterday. In Santa Cruz, this didn’t even merit a second glance. I’ll post video of this as soon as I can.

    It does seem to go around corners a lot nicer than my trailer (Cycletote cargo), but it also looks like it doesn't hold much more than a couple of good sized panniers – what is the capacity of the -travoy?

    @Sour: I agree and think the Travoy fills about the same role as a good set of panniers. Weight capacity is 60 lbs. I did mount a bike to the Travoy and transport it 6 miles on a narrow mountain road earlier this week. I shot video but haven't put it to music yet :-)

    i just won a Travoy at the SVBC office move (we moved their entire office by bicycle in an afternoon)
    it certainly seems like a well built machine. and fold up incredibly well.
    do you have the details on where i can get the alt hitch for my recumbent?
    also are they yet selling the extra hitches?
