Don't haul a trailer to Europe and back.  They are only used in the US, the land of excess baggage.

we just use two rear panniers....way easier to put on planes trains and little rental cars.

Newfy, I disagree about trailers. Lots of people pulling them here in Europe for daily hauling and touring. Last time I was in France I passed at least a dozen folks in a 14 day period pulling BOBs or some trailer.
