  1. The weehoo is great. The kid can get some exercise or freewheel. I can get a real ride in and they feel like they’re participating

  2. Weehoos are the best. We had a single then we ended up getting a double too. Great quality and customer service. Way better than a trail-a-bike. Kids are buckled in and safe.

  3. My family has amassed a quiver of trailers over the last several years. We have a Thule Chariot Lite Double and a WeeHoo Turbo single and double. The WeeHoo is what my kids always choose and its more fun for them and me. The only thing I don’t like about the Weehoo is that there isn’t much adjustment to lower the trailer for taller bikes. When I attach it to my XL 29er full suspension it sits up high and gets really unstable. When I hook it up to my commuter that has a lower top tube and allows the trailer to be level and lower to the ground it is way more compliant. I also wish the kickstand was more heavy duty so that you could load both kids up and it wouldn’t tip over.
