I haven't ridden with either,  but the follow me looks a lot more stable in use,  and is compatible with carrying panniers and a saddle bag.

That's what I thought too. Panniers and stuff on the top as well. Looks like you could tour with a child using it if you can't afford a tandem. Might be a good way to try your child out on a tour before you spend on a tandem.

There's a link to a review of the Follow-me on the other thread you kicked off (about the same time as this one).

Here it is.

Thanks for finding that review. It's a positive review but rust is not good.

I'm currently looking for a Follow-Me.

We were teaching the lad to ride and a family cycled past with a followme. We were a little away from them but it looked good. Couldn't tell if it was a 12", 14", 16" or larger bike being towed but the front tyre wasn't that far above the ground. I get the impression trailgator lifts smaller bikes a little too high but this looks like it's not an issue.
