French Freight

I posted about this trailer under the heading "Budget baggage" on 29th June last year. It was on ebay at £49.99. Recently I discovered the identical trailer from French trailer maker Erde. Possibly a bit of Taiwanese engineering with badges added in France. Not uncommon in the cycling world.

It's on sale in the UK from at £95.99 including VAT and delivery. Fairly basic in its design the trailer is constructed from steel tube with a steel sheet floor. This contributes to it's 18Kg weight. Internal dimensions of the load box are 73x55x35 cm (LxWxH). Not a huge box but a 100Kg Gross weight lets you haul 82Kg of stuff, more than twice some trailers twice the price. The website recommends that the trailer doesn't outweigh the bike + rider.
Wheels are 20" steel QR and the out-rigger bars are also quick release to allow easy wheel changing.
The top cover is included in the price and the trailer is fitted with reflectors. It folds flat for storage with the tow-arm underneath.Wilstow claim that this is the only bike trailer to have the German TUV quality cerificate.

This seems to be a good trailer for the money.
 If you have one let me know how you get on with it.
