trailer vs trailer

I know there has been a lot of discussion about the relative merits of panniers vs trailers, but what about trailer vs trailer? Specifically, one-wheel vs two-wheel trailers. More specifically, the Burley Nomad vs the BOB. I'm an on-road cyclist, and I'm thinking of buying one or the other.

One wheel trailers, like the BOB, take a while to get used to because of the balance.  But, they do go on and off the bike easily.  

Two wheel trailers:  Can't ride on a narrow shoulder. You will need to ride out in the travel lane further.  Can feel like a big sail (or sea anchor) at times.
