I think the easiest thing to compare this trailer to would be a standard bob trailer, or a two wheel kid / dog / cargo trailer.
The design is basically the same as the standard BOB, except with improvements in ease of use. the ball quick release system and easy release lever to get the trailer on and off are incredible. Super easy to use, and the added kickstand supports not only the trailer but your entire bike.
Compared to the 2 wheeled trailers, this trailer pulls WAY easier, and has a much smaller effect on your bike's handling. It's actually pretty easy to forget its back there, which can not be said for the two wheeled trailers.
On a final note, the entire product is built really well. Its sturdy, the welds are solid, and parts are high quality. The rear wheel is well built, strong, and actually comes with a reasonably nice tire. The trailer seems like something you don't need to baby at all, and it would still last a long long time. 10/10 would recommend.

Lots to like about this trailer, starting with the ease of setup and attachment. Simply remove your rear QR skewer and install the one included with the trailer, and you're ready to go. Mounts for other axle types (thru axle, etc.) are also available separately. The trailer simply drops on to the ball mounts on the special thru axle, then squeezing a lever allows you to easily lift it off. The whole system is nothing short of an engineering marvel, especially compared to may of the clunky and inelegant trailer attachment systems I've seen from other manufacturers.
On the road, the trailer pulls straight and easy. I quickly got used to the extra length and slight change to my bike's center of gravity and had no problem navigating my normal commute to work, which is a mix of bike paths, dirt paths, busy streets, and sidewalks. The suspension really helps keep the trailer pulling smoothly on rough surfaces.
The kick stand is great! Super burly and strong enough to hold up a loaded down trailer and the bike you have attached to it. Overall, a great and well designed trailer for turning any bike into a cargo bike or a touring bike.
