Bicycle Cargo Trailer – Croozer Designs has Best Value
This trailer has been replaced by the Cargo 16 which appears to by identical to the trailer in this review in every way but price.
Is at the top of the list for Bicycle Cargo Trailers & I think we can safely assume that one of the more typical uses of bike cargo trailers is for picking up groceries. Along those same lines, bike cargo trailers are ideal for other bike errands like picking up your lawn & garden supplies or hauling your bottey back from the weekend yard sale. I’ve used my bike trailer (a modified kiddie hauler) for hauling everything from trash down to the burn pile to taking our garden vegetables down to our church. (I have a 36 volt 500 watt e-bike) Whatever the load is, the most important aspect of these trailers is the wonderful feeling you get by not being dependent on your car or truck. It takes us just one more step closer to being energy independent on a personal level. And that of course is where we must start if we’re ever going to get their as a nation.

I have not personally used the Croozer Designs Cargo Trunk bike trailer but I have read an awful lot of very good reviews about it. In addition a close look at the specs and some of the pictures tells me that this trailer offers an awful lot of value for the money. . . ….. So that said leave your car behind and get some exercise!

Well yes kind of. It was more of a personal opinion from an older fellow who only gave it 3 out of 5 stars because he thought it felt kind of flimsy. When the warranty runs out he is going to add some additional floor bracing. (he’ll be able to pick up that load of drywall then I’ll bet.)
A Final Thought on Bike Cargo Trailers
If you use your bike as part of your daily routine for commuting to & from work as I do there are many situations where having your bike trailer is very convenient. I live in Central PA & the weather you leave home in is more often than not the same weather you go home in. Now you don’t need a trailer to carry your rain gear I get that but I also carry a laptop plus my lunch plus emergency gear & maybe a change of cloths. I might also need to take some work home with me or stop at the grocery store on the way home. I ride a 500 watt e-bike & I do tend to carry more than if I was doing all the work myself but I really enjoy constantly exploring all the new ways I can use my bike and trailer. I also enjoy planning ahead for the unexpected, some of us simply like to have their bike trailer with them so they’re always prepared.
