IMPORTANT
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH
YOUR BURLEY BY READING THIS ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE USE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR
AUTHORIZED BURLEY DEALER OR VISIT WWW.BURLEY.COM.
Introduction
Once you’ve done the initial assembly and read the safety
guidelines, you’re ready to go! Before trailering, be sure you
have the tow bar, trailer wheels and hitch securely attached.
9. Only use factory-supplies wheels, with the tires inflated
to the pressure recommended on tire sidewall. Check
the tires before each use. Do not use higher-pressure or
knobby tires.
10. Clamp the hitch securely to the bicycle frame, and check
for a tight attachment before each ride.
11. Do not make alterations to the trailer. Contact your
Authorized Burley Dealer or go to www.burley.com for
replacement of any damaged, worn-out or missing parts.
12. Do not use your trailer on icy roads or when inclement
weather makes cycling hazardous.
13. The use of a mirror on your bicycle is recommended.

Safety Guidelines
WARNING
BICYCLING WITH A TRAILER, AND BICYCLING IN GENERAL, CAN
BE HAZARDOUS. FAILURE TO OBSERVE ANY OF THE SAFETY
GUIDELINES IN THIS MANUAL COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENT
AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
1. Inspect and maintain your bicycle and trailer regularly. See
“Safety Checklists” on page 10.
2. This trailer is designed for one pet weighing up to 75 lbs
(34 kg). Never carry a larger pet, as the extra weight and
higher center of gravity may cause the trailer to tip over.
3. Because of the trailer’s additional weight, a bicycle pulling
a trailer is heavier and less responsive. Avoid sudden
swerving, rocks and curbs.
4. Experiment with your pet in the trailer by taking short trips
in an uncongested area until you both are accustomed to
the trailer. Train your animal companion to sit or lie when
the trailer is in motion. Never tow an excitable pet, as they
may lunge or jump, causing the trailer to tip over.
5. To protect your pet from jumping from the moving
trailer, always use your cover and never leave your pet
unattended.
6. Observe recommended speeds: a maximum of 15mph
(24km/h) on smooth, straight roads, and 5 mph (8km/h)
or less when turning or on uneven roads.
7. Never use your pet trailer for transporting people.
8. Never pull your trailer with a motorized vehicle.

Safety Checklists
Check Before Each Ride:
✓✓ Wheels tightly and securely attached
✓✓ Tires inflated to recommended pressure on tire side wall
✓✓ Hitch properly secured with safety strap in place
✓✓ Tow bar locked securely in place
✓✓ Bicycle safety check, especially brakes and tires
✓✓ Helmet for cyclist
✓✓ Safety flag in place
✓✓ Ensure that pet is calm
✓✓ Maximum load 75 lbs (34 kg by law in Europe)
Monthly Checklist:
✓✓ Inspect tow bar, hitch, frame tubing, flex connector and
hardware for damage
✓✓ Inspect tires for wear and cracks
✓✓ Inspect wheels for trueness and cracks
✓✓ Inspect wheel bearings for wear
✓✓ Inspect fabric parts for rips, abrasion, or missing or
damaged hardware
✓✓ Contact your Authorized Burley Dealer for replacement of
any damaged or worn-out parts
Maintenance and Storage
Hitch and Tow Bar Maintenance
Store trailer indoors if possible. Do not use or store trailer
at temperatures below 32˚F (0°C), as hitch flex connector
can become brittle and possibly break, causing an accident
resulting in serious injury.
Fabric Care
Hand wash fabric parts with mild soap or detergent and warm
water. For heavy soiling, use a nylon bristle brush. Do not use
bleach. Line-dry floor covering and trailer cover. Polyester
fabric will eventually fade, especially when exposed to direct
sunlight. Wipe dry (to help avoid mildew) and store out of
direct sunlight in a dry, well ventilated area, or use a Burley
Trailer Storage Cover to protect your trailer. Clean windows
with a damp, soft cloth. Replace any damaged parts.
