    I concede a roof rack is cheaper.

    Price in my second link.
    Correct me if I'm wrong Leon but Australian origin Bulldog trailers (?) now with USA dealers and EU production, the latter with modifications to provide a stainless steel chassis, optional side 'steppers' for more secure loading, suspension and a CE certification.

    The design is smart, but a one-day, unlimited mileage trailer rental is $20 at Uhaul. I can do that 100x for the cost of the nifty trailer and I don't have to store it.

    Hmm, adds up pretty quickly with 20 dollar a day....

    One, one-day rental in a year........In a 100+ yrs, I have regrets. Of course, I'll probably be wearing a diaper at that time and worrying about other stuff.

    +1 one on this. I've researched trailers a couple of times and even put a deposit down on one because I was certain I needed to have it and would figure out where to store eventually. But it's hard to beat U-Haul's daily rentals. I've got less than $120 spent on them for the three bikes I've towed in the past three years.

    It is a pretty neat design but I would be concerned about road debris being kicked up from the towing vehicle. If I'm going to pick up a rock ding on the bike then I at least want it to happen while I'm riding the bike. :eek:

    Most people use a trailer more then one day. I for one used one for almost 3 weeks going from driving Mekka to driving walhalla. 21 x 20 = 420 dollar. Ads up quickly. For a one day usage for sure, get a rental... If it's for hauling your bike everywhere the buying option makes more then sense...

    The rails for your feet look slick. I would add some traction tape.
    The sand paper type tape you see on stairs.

    If you look at the other videos you'll see they drilled raised holes on the stepper rails, but yes, the central bike ramp looks slippery for UK summers :)
