My Jago trailer, bought off Amazon, turned up today and first thoughts are that it's pretty impressive for the price I paid. Obviously it's no Yak, but at only 2kg heavier and a fraction of the price it was a no-brainer for first one. The jago does have same weak QR skewers, which I expected, so will look at changing them at some point, but that apart the trailer feels ok and should be up to the task of what I want it for; mainly shopping and a short tour of Wales this summer. There is the option of using the new nuts that attach to M5 axle bolt, but they weigh a fair bit so will keep to QR. The rear wheel isn't the best though; one or two loose spokes, chrome rim looks nasty, and bearings feel very very rough! It spins up ok but will look to change at some point. I'm probably going to leave it as it is for now and then change things as and when - probably rear wheel and QR first.
well if u intend to use the skewers that came with the trailer you should revisit my experience on previous pages about its failure at the join of the rod with the lever. A death trap. SO you should make sure yours is ok.
You can only use the M5 axle bolt versions if you have a suitable rear wheel? wont work on a QR wheel.
Seems like your wheel not very good unlike mine, which is passable.
One thing you should consider is loctite the lightly sprung spring loaded lock bolt on the two sides of the trailer attachment.
you can also see I changed the bolt at the top to a longer one to protect the release bolt ( it was any way too short and didnt lock into the nut well- I'm not the first to note this)
Yes I agree they are not bad for the money - goodness know what they cost the sellers, 10 quid? - I see them going for £50 or so
