Drop tail trailer

Ran across this on my local Craigslist.  Don't know the guy but looking at the website it looks comparable to a Kendon.

It does look very similar to a Kendon, but the fold out rear looks much longer. I think this might be designed for hauling a bigger "cruiser" type bike with a longer wheelbase.

Interesting concept, reminds me a bit of a few trailers I've seen before, was it Syd or Geoffrey that had one where the whole trailer base lowered and you rode onto it. That is what these do, and where the term "drop" comes in.

That was my thought as well.  As a shorter guy with taller bikes loading by yourself can present some challenges.  This looks like a good alternative I would consider if it was a double rail.  I'l be glad to go check it out if someone has a interest.
