I have had two of these,not at the same time though. I generally found them to do most of what I wanted most of the time. However, even though it is marketed to lift your bike off the ground after loading the bike and then put in the wheels I always found this a pain. We used the bike mainly on the continent where we use the aires so lots of stops and unloading, uneven ground, scuffed knuckles and lots of physical work. I sat down and tried to rationalise my use of the system. It was 100 percent on reversing. Likewise for storing when not being used. Excellent for charges on ferries and peages on autoroutes. Good for parking in supermarkets, tight spots and best of all talking to enquiring motorhomers who don't have access to one. But loading, pumping up putting wheels in with the bike in place...... A real bummer. Solution? I got a small Ali loading ramp made and loaded and unloaded the bike when everything was assembled, wheels and all. Much easier to do and less hassle. Went for the winter break to spain last year and never disconnected the trailer once. Everything is much easier and safer to handle without the mass and extra weight of the bike.
I think this trailer is excellent and if you think around the small hiccups you will grow to appreciate just how useful it is.
Why haven't I got it now? Well er in doors has got a toyota IQ so we are towing that down to Spain this year(trailer) for our 4 month stay
