Yes, got this for £80ish from ebay

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... yId_165476

We didn't get to use it too much last year, but when we did the weeman loved it! It's good as it folds down pretty small and can be configured to have one or two kids in it - the single kid sits centrally as opposed to unbalancing the trailer by having all the weight on one side.

Riding wise it feels like the back brakes being activated by a piece of elastic when you go over bumps or inclines, but you soon get used to it. Definitely worth getting one.

Yeah those are ones !
I'm sort of torn between the two wheel cargo and the single wheel. Any ideas how they both handle ? My only experience of trailers was a tag along that I had for my daughter, very sketchy from time to time.
