Farfarer or BOB Ibex?
We're starting to do big day trips with the kids (8 hour rides on rail trails, easy dirt, some paved, etc., lots of stops).
Finding we need to haul a lot more food, water, clothing, jackets, and various other items (like fishing rods or whatever) for a full day out (if you have kids, you know what I'm talking about).
I'm wanting a trailer to put everything in one place. It will see dirt trails, some easy singletrack, paved bikeways, and maybe some tough singletrack when riding without the kids.
I'm down to the BOB and Farfarer, leaning towards the Farfarer because of the weight and simplicity of design. I like the story of the Farfarer as well - nice to support a small business like that. The BOB is proven however but heavy.
Pulling with a 29er.
I bought an Ibex with single track rides in mind, but it's only seen use for commuting and grocery runs. That said, I've never broken an egg!

Personally I'd go with the Extrawheel. I haven't used one, but I have used a BOB some and wasn't real happy with it.

I use mine in all conditions (from techy to smooth), you can put a fast rolling tire (with a higher pressure) and it will travel nicely on the rail trails.
