Comments about Copilot Copilot Model A Trailer:

We mostly love this trailer. It is easy to use. My only complaints are:
1) Our 3-year-old always slides down in the seat. The restraint system does not hold him in well.
2) The ride is bumpy unless the road/path is very smooth. This prevents my son from wanting to go on long or frequent rides.

Comments about Copilot Copilot Model A Trailer:

I've just started riding my bike and this was the first day I used it. It was so much fun to bring my little "coach" with me. He didn't want to get out. I am not in shape at all and was worried about having the extra drag on my bike, but with its big wheels, it pulled really easy!

Comments about Copilot Copilot Model A Trailer:

I shopped around for a long time looking for the perfect bike trailer to fit my budget. This trailer has a lot of features that cheaper models don't. Instead of a flimsy sling-like contraption that squishes the kids together, this has actual formed "seats" with hard bottoms and footrests, and is spacious enough to fit both my 4-year-old and 1-year-old in without them being uncomfortable. There is lots of space in the back for all our gear. It is very easy to assemble and disassemble, it comes apart in just a few minutes for easy storage. It rides quite smoothly, at times I forget it's behind me (unless I have a heavy load, i.e. kids or groceries). It took no time at all to get used to riding with this. I feel that this is a quality trailer and it's probably comparable with other much more expensive models.

Now for the few things that kept me from giving this five stars. When you ride with the rain shield down (which you have to do since the mesh is not fine enough to keep dirt and pebbles from getting flicked off the tires back onto your kids), there is no ventilation at all inside the trailer. Luckily I have a sewing machine and was able to easily rig up a cloth screen that I could attach to the front with Velcro that will both keep dirt out and let air in. Also, the wheel that attaches to the front to convert into a stroller didn't work for me. The pegs on the clamp did not line up with the holes. I don't plan on using it as a stroller anyway so this doesn't bother me, but it's worth mentioning. If there were some better ventilation, I wouldn't hesitate to give this trailer five stars.
