I wish they had posted weights.  It looks very solidly built, but I fear that it might be over built, maybe even more so than their Nice Racks.

I like that it looks like it will store/ship flat with minimal disassembly.  I also like that it can take a wide range of wheel sizes.

Excellent, thanks for the link. Looks like a typical burly Surly, designed to haul big stuff and last a long time.

BOB is headquartered here in Idaho. I tend to be a bit biased even though I don't use a trailer.

Clearly this is built to carry stuff so heavy that +/- 10 pounds of trailer weight won't matter.

The Bob trailers max out at 70 pounds and a typical child-style trailer has a 100 pound limit. The Surly can haul a refrigerator, microwave and a tool box at once.

30 pounds for the little one and 37 pounds for the big one.  It's at the very bottom of the page.
