Trailers are the best items for bike riders. You can carry great weight with tremendous ease. Let’s look at some of the best bike cargo trailers.

Aosom Elite II Bike Cargo Trailer

It is perhaps one of the best things you can experience as a bike rider. Once you get it, I bet you will wonder how you got along so far without it. You can carry everything in it. Whether you go to a grocery store to bring grocery or you have to bring logs for the fireplace, it is the best. Aosome Cargo trailer can handle any kind of weight. This cargo trailer can carry a maximum weight of 180 pounds. Well, usually no one wants to carry as much of the weight but you should know the maximum capacity of your trailer. Let’s look at some of the specifications:


  • Quick release wheels
  • Specially strengthened solid metal bottom
  • Easily assembles and folds down for storage
  • Removable and washable cover
  • One Aosom Type ‘a’ bicycle hitch/Connector included
  • Folding frame
  • Total weight: 39 Ibs
  • Max loading weight: 176.4 Ibs

The removable cover offers two nice benefits:

  1. It keeps your cargo out of sight from prying eyes.
  2. It protects your cargo from fierce weathers such as rain and wind.

This cargo trailer is attached easily to your rear wheel. The 20 inch pneumatic tires allow your cargo trailer to move smoothly whether you are on a pavement or a dirt trail. If you want to travel at night, there are reflective stripes for use. But if the cover is not in place, there is nothing that can provide visibility. Perhaps you will need a bike tail light for night travel.

It is just like a Mac Gyer of bike trailers. One of the most versatile of bike trailers for carrying cargo. It has open front and back ends that make it ideal for loading long as well as awkward cargo such as logs, kayak and a canoe. This trailer is also perfect for loading up groceries from the local supermarket. It is very lightweight weighing around 14 pounds. It can carry around 100 pounds of cargo. When you do not use it, you can fold it up into small as well as compact package. You can easily store it in your closet. The assembly time is almost none. It takes a couple of minutes before it is ready to go. It comes up with an aluminum hitch that is attached to the rear axle. The frame is made of light but durable aluminum that doesn’t rust.

  • Standard Forged Hitch included
  • Two-wheel design keeps this trailer upright as well as stable
  • Quickly disassembles and is compact for transport as well as storage

The trailer’s fabric is thick. It is made of heavy-duty nylon with a rubber coating. That’s why it is tough as well as durable. You can remove it quite easily and wash as whenever you desire to do so. As it is nylon, anything sharp can damage it. That’s why if you are going to transport something that has sharp edges, you should lay a board or something like that to protect this fabric from getting punctured. It can be folded easily. It is light so you can carry it. It is 22 inch wide that’s why can carry large loads. Loading and unloading is easy because of open front and back ends.
