Pros Waterproof, simplicity of use, lots of add-onsBest hitch, lightweight, full roll cage, versatile, sun protectionPassenger comfort, totally weather-proof, easy to useLightweight, best hitch design, water-resistant, excellent valueComfortable seats, large passenger space, adjustable interior, great safety features
Cons Expensive, not adjustable, little storageDifficult to stow, not watertight, noise from parking brakeLack of storage space, expensiveNo passenger padding, no bottom reinforcement, lacks versatilityExtremely heavy, large and bulky to store, not water-tight
Bottom Line The 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 tested.The D'Lite scored near the top of the pack in every metric we tested and provides unrivaled protection for passengers and outstanding versatility.Those 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 conditions.The Bee is light and easy to use and delivers the durability and design quality Burley is known for at a bargain price.Kid passengers will love this well-cushioned, roomy trailer, but their parents may have a tough time pulling so much weight.
