Pros Lightweight, best hitch design, water-resistant, excellent valueBest hitch, lightweight, full roll cage, versatile, sun protectionPassenger comfort, totally weather-proof, easy to useWaterproof, simplicity of use, lots of add-onsComfortable seats, large passenger space, adjustable interior, great safety features
Cons No passenger padding, no bottom reinforcement, lacks versatilityDifficult to stow, not watertight, noise from parking brakeLack of storage space, expensiveExpensive, not adjustable, little storageExtremely heavy, large and bulky to store, not water-tight
Bottom Line The Bee is light and easy to use and delivers the durability and design quality Burley is known for at a bargain priceThe D'Lite scored near the top of the pack in every metric we tested and provides unrivaled protection for passengers and outstanding versatilityThose willing to tow the weight of the Chariot Cross 2 will be rewarded with an exquisitely designed trailer that can handle all terrain and weather conditionsThe Lite 2 may be the less fancy sibling of the Chariot Cross, but it's still one of the safest and most user-friendly products we testedKid passengers will love this well-cushioned, roomy trailer, but their parents may have a tough time pulling so much weight
