Please be very careful if you decide on a one wheel Bob. If they are not loaded correctly they can cause your bike to completely lose control
at the most inopportune time, downhill.
On our last TA tour we met an Aussie gal that had that very thing happen to her on a downhill. She was unconscious for two hours down in a drainage ditch until someone found her. She had to fly home to convalesce for two months before she could continue her tour. She was East to West and the accident happened the first week or so of her trip.
I have over 10,000 miles on my Burley Nomad two wheel trailer and never any control or tipping issues and never once concerned myself with weight distribution. Having said that if I was ever to to do off road single track touring I wouldn't hesitate to use a Bob Yak.
