Nomad is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have a 2012 Nomad and have loved it, overall the quality of the trailer is fantastic but we do have one complaint, the bands that hold the cover on have deteriorated and broken so we now have to use rubber bands to hold the cover in place. I was pleased to see the Solo trailer we purchased last year uses velcro and some form of hard plastic catch to hold the cover on. I will probably check out the new style cover to see if it will work with our Nomad and if so purchase it so I don't have to keep fiddling with rubber bands. some way to easily attach solar panels (we use Goal Zero panels to charge battery packs during our outings).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bike touring champ. I needed to try something in addition to the panniers on my e-bike, so I heard about trailers, and specifically the Nomad, through a member of the on-line e-bike group to which I belong. I researched it on-line via videos and reviews. I thought it would work out well for my short to medium range bike touring. I ordered one last spring and have enjoyed it very much since. With two, 100+ mile tours and four 40 mile trips so far, I am pleased with my purchase. I also use the Nomad to pick up 30 pound bags of dog food for my husky mix companion, and for other shopping loads, too. This is an excellent method for hauling and camping. I’m a happy camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Makes your bike even more versatile as a daily urban assault and shopping tool. Huge capacity works for bike camping and fetching water for cooking. You can easily carry a loaded five gallon collapsible water jug back to your tent. Try strapping that onto your rear rack! Works well for the Bike Friday which does not have a big rear triangle to handle lateral torque of a Bob Yak Trailer. I bought the straight tow bar intended for the Burley child carrier as it gives more ground clearance. In hindsight, I would have asked Burley to swap the standard tow bar to save nearly fifty bucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I absolutely love my Burley Nomad trailer. I can't understand why the BOB trailer is so popular. The Burley rode so smoothly, sometimes I would forget it was there! And it holds a TON. I know because that's about how much stuff I packed in it for my trip from Vermont to Seattle. The only trouble I had was a flat tire on the Erie Canal, but that was because I picked up a fish hook in my tire! Luckily there was a place nearby that was able to patch it. The Nomad is awesome. Easy to use, things stay dry in the rain, and I can't wait to use it on my next bike trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've owned both a Nomad and a Flatbed and both are superior additions to my bike when touring and camping. Even for day trips both are extremely versatile. I upgraded mine with 20" wheels and Big Apple tires and they provide needed shock absorbtion while not sacrificing rolling resistance. Darn near impossible to damage the tires too. Tried but failed to come up with some way to rig fenders to keep wet and dirt off the trailer but I'm sure it could be done. This traller is not a toy but rather a serious piece of touring equipment. Since using this I would never go back to panniers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I mostly use it to carry things to the local airport to work on my plane or go flying. I tow it behind my recumbent Trike and don't even know it's there unless I see it in the rear view mirror. The cover is great also. The two things that I have needed to change are the flag holder and the interior base. The flag base just sticks into a slot in the fabric. The flag is tall and with any cross wind at all it can bend way over into the opposing bike lane and could also whack pedestrians without you even knowing it. I just use the 1/2 length and that is fine as I have a tall flag on the Trike. The bottom of the carrier is just fabric material and I would worry about heavy items tearing a seam and falling through. I just made a cardboard cutout out of the box it arrived in and inserted it in the bottom to provide more support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Burley Nomad! Approved by The Frod! 16. juni 2017 14:09 I bought my first Nomad back in the early 2000s and over the years it has taken me on numerous tours around Europe. From the Atlantic coast to the Rockies, my Burley Nomad was my trusted companion. It withstood the trials and tribulations of gravel roads, dirt tracks, whatever. The Nomad never flinched! It has been packed and filled to the brim. Weight has never been an issue. The Burley Nomad simply marched on! Last year I decided to upgrade to the most recent version and I wasn't disappointed. Whilst my old friend relaxed in the garage licking her wounds, my new companion and I set out on a new adventure throughout Europe. The famous bike tourer, The Frod, ditched his cycle bags and BOB trailer and got himself a brand new Nomad and came along. He hasn't looked back since! The Burley Nomad folks, it doesn't get better than this! See enclosed bike touring video "Where Frods Dare!" and you'll see what I mean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good enough to be burley I have been a Burley trailer owner since 1988. The nomad rides well behind my bike. With a heavy load it is a bit rickety and unstable. My issue with the nomad is the low front end. I didn't have it for a month before the cover was damaged on the front end from hitting objects, bumps, curbs, snow and other stuff. So now I have gorilla tape to cover the holes. This is a poor design and not worthy of a Burley. I have pulled my other Burleys for 30 years, wind, rain, snow, or hail. My next cargo trailer will not be a Nomad. I've suffered 5 years with it and am unsatisfied to say the least.
