    Bike Trailers intended for Off-Road Use

    I am looking to purchase a tow behind bike trailer for my child and wanted to know if anyone has come across one that IS intended for off Road Use.

    I definitely don't intend on taking my little one down gnarly single track or even any steep grades, but would like one that could handle some flat easy dirt trails. or rougher terrain.

    I havent heard of or seen any before and would be suprised if any company would want the liability of encouraging to do any sort of trail riding with a child in a trailer.
    That said any will work off road. i do not go trails but pull a chariot on a daily basis and wouldn't recoment it for any off road because the bracket that attaches the trailer to the arm that connects to the bike is plastic which could break easily with the stress of a trail so look for one thats metal to metal on the conection.
    Be very careful the trailers tip easy
