BOB Yak Plus Trailer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Year Later I've had this trailer for a year and put a couple thousand miles on it. This trailer is very well built and I've had no problems with it, riding on trails and roads. Great for bike touring/camping and for hauling groceries. Only problems I've had are learning how to maneuver the trailer when I'm off-bike. It's difficult to back up and it's unstable when my bike is parked. However, I dealt with the stability issue by installing an inexpensive kickstand. Now, I can park my bike anywhere I want without it falling over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Rail Trail Thru-rides Took one of these on a GAP/C&O ride this past spring. Man, how did I ever do this trail without this thing. It carries the majority of your gear down low and I hardly felt like it was there. The only problem with it was parking the bike. You are now almost double the length. The BOB is supposed to act as a kickstand for your whole bike too, but that is a skill I've yet to master. But all in all, this was the best piece of touring equipment I have bought, apart from my bike itself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard Working Trailer I was looking into adding front panniers when I decided to go with the Yak because I wanted to be able to take weight off my bike frame and still be able to haul a lot of cargo. With the Yak, I can put all my heavy stuff in the trailer and carry lighter stuff in two rear panniers. I even have room to stow my 3/4 size guitar. I only have two complaints. One, I'd like to have a kick-stand on the trailer to help stablize things, and two, the pins that secure the Yak to the rear of the bike are hard to insert and remove. I've already ripped one of the pins off it's rubber "keeper" when trying to remove it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap wheel renders trailer useless I won't comment on the utility or functionality of the trailer, as I just picked it up a few days ago. Not expecting any problems there anyway. Here's my issue: The wheel build quality out of the box on my trailer was very poor. Definitely not worthy of an item which is intended to be used world-wide by long distance tourers who need absolute reliability. Looking over the wheel prior to installation I noticed it would barely spin. The spokes seemed to have poor/uneven tension also. I decided to adjust the wheel bearings first, thinking they would be the loose ball type and all that would be necessary was a little tweaking of the jam nuts to relax the preload. Wrong. The bearings are non-adjustable sealed cartridge units of poor quality. Luckily, I had on hand some decent used one removed from an old mountain bike wheel set that were exact replacements. I easily popped out the junk ones and pressed in the new. What a difference! Spinning smooth and long now. On to the spokes. It was very difficult to pop the tire off the rim. Changing a flat on tour with this thing will be a pain. Use soapy water to lube the bead. Once the tire was off, I discovered brass shavings imbedded in the tube and rim strip. What the...!!! Pulled the strip off, and all the spoke nipple slots were buggered like they'd been attacked with a dull drill. Blasted machine-built wheel! This was the source of the brass shavings. Once the mess was cleaned up, I went about tensioning the spokes. Though the wheel was reasonably true, the spoke tensions were all over the place, and all of them too low. One of the nipples was buggered so badly it could not be tightened and needed to be replaced. After a few hours of tinkering, the wheel was finally what it should have been from the begining. I realize not everyone has the tools or bike mechanic skills to do these repairs themselves, so I would strongly recommend they have a reliable bike shop (REI!!)check the wheel of their new BoB before trusting it on a long tour.
