I prefer a 2 wheel trailer over 1 wheel cuz trailer carries most weight, not your rear axle. People have been mentioning Burley Nomad (which is a fine trailer) but I prefer Quik-Pak:
and I like this company for trailers:

As for myself, I am not about to dish out $35.00 to $60.00 a night just for some shuteye.
If it were that cheap, I might consider motels, but these days it seems $50 to $100 is closer to the going rate.

General Discussion / Re: What Touring bike would you suggest?

A Recumbent!!! I having been touring for over 20 years and did many thousands of miles on my trusty Trek 720. I loved touring, but hated the butt/groin, wrist, neck pain associated with it. About 5 years ago, I bought my first recumbent and just love it. To me it is the ideal style bike for touring. There are many styles (and folks tour on most of them), but the 2 main types are short or long wheelbase. I prefer a long wheel base for touring and would recommend either a Rans Stratus (or Stratus XP), Easy Racer Tour Easy, or Bacchetta Bella. There are several shops in VA that sell recumbents, or you could find a good price on a used one from someone in that area.
