"Very good but instructions/pictures could be better! In addition bolts going into underside of 'slider' would be better if they they could be done by hand (ie with a plastic hand 'tap')."

Pros: the bars can be mounted to a range of trailers, sturdy bars, pretty easy to fit securely, designed so a trailer cover can still be used, bars have tie-down eyelets
Cons: a spanner is required for mounting them.
"My trailer is not an Erdé but nevertheless these solid well engineered bars fit it perfectly. I have mounted 3 cycle carriers on the bars so we can have family days out and camping holidays with our bikes."

Pros: does the job
Cons: had to buy them without knowing if they will fit
"Got them in the hope that they would fit our Duuo trailer. They do so without any modification. It looks like we'll get all 4 bikes on them too which was what we got them for. Haven't tried them in anger yet which is why I gave performance rating 3 stars."

"Extremely pleased with my purchase.
Written installation instructions very brief but adequate, diagrams could have been a little clearer.
Positioning bars and fixings on the trailer was straightforward enough, but it is very difficult to access the bolts in order to "finger tighten" them -the fixings are so snug to the brackets that it is hard to get your fingers into the small gap and get the bolt to grip.
For this reason I plan to leave the bars on all the time even when not using the roof box.

"Bought this as I needed to get some window units down to southern Spain without the need to hire a truck. Had some concerns as I did not have an erde trailer, however it was very easy to adapt my trailer (a Caddy) to give a very solid fit for these bars an excellent add on and would definately recommend"

Pros: well made and strong
Cons: a liitle bit expensive
"These bars fit on top of the trailer which in my case is an Erde 142 but they are universal so will fit other trailers as well. Good strong set of bars which clamp tight to the sides and also you get strengthening brackets that go between the front and side panels. The bars will take cycle racks or a top box and still allow you to put the flat cover over the trailer. The bars adjust between 90cm to 140cm. Just a little expensive at £118.99 but will probably last a long time."
