Review

For the first time, the Colorado company Weehoo is selling its combo bike trailer and jogging stroller in the USA. We spent some time with the feature-packed and competitively priced weeGo Buggy to see how it stacks up against similarly-priced trailer/stroller combos (spoiler: pretty well).

Interior Space & Seating

The Weehoo weeGo trailer’s interior space is comparable in size to other double trailers—cozy for two medium/big kids and roomy for one. Its longer shape and deep, reinforced foot well gives kids ample legroom.

It has a unique harness system that, while functional, I found tedious. The straps are sewn into the U-shaped padding, so pads don’t shift around. While it’s nice to have the pads stay in place, the child (or you) has to lift the straps and the padded U over their head to get into the seat, which can be tricky with a helmet on.

Also tricky is the long process required to adjust the straps. Rather than the typical sliding buckle to lengthen or shorten the strap, you have to remove each strap from the seat back, and then rethread it through the seat back and the buckle (see pictures below).

To switch the harnesses from two children to one, you must unthread all four straps, then rethread two of them through the middle. It’s awkward and time consuming, but if you don’t need to make changes once they’ve been adjusted, then it might not be a big deal.  Another downside is that there is no allowance on the backrest for helmets. The weeGo’s seat is well-cushioned, but felt shallow compared to other trailers.

Folding

The weeGo is a cinch to fold, though it does require some hand strength (and sometimes both hands if they’re sissy like mine) to release or lock the latches.

I also had some issues with the bar that bows out the trailer. Several times it snagged as I was folding it, but with extra attention that can be avoided. Folded, it compares well in size to other double trailers, and definitely wins for being lightweight. It is very easy to carry.  When folded, I also noticed that the undercarriage strap rubs directly on the ground, as a result, take care NOT to slide or push the trailer when it is folded (see pics at end of review).

Storage and rear venting

The WeeGo has a nice rear venting system that can be opened or closed with a vinyl cover.This might seem like a minor detail, but the ability to open a rear vent greatly improves airflow on hot days.

The storage area is relatively small and unfortunately a bit hard to access. Because of the zipper opening, it’s tricky to access the whole space, and due to the design of the bar across the back, if you try to wedge in any larger items, they will push against the backs of the riders. The back features a smaller interior pocket that’s good for storing smaller items.

Exterior Cover

The weeGo has a waterproof vinyl cover that can be rolled up a secured with a toggle when not in use. The vinyl is a bit stiff, but it’s comparable with similarly-priced trailers. Unique to the weeGo, even the mesh cover can be completely removed.

The sunshade is not very functional because it is fixed in place. Especially for children under 2, who have a harder time adjusting their bodies when the sun is in their eyes, an adjustable sunshade is a huge help for times when the sun is low.

Because the elastic must be pulled taut at the same time it’s being opened to go around the screw, it was tricky to attach with one hand. I could only attach it one-handed about half the time. Also, the elasticappears to be stretching out a little already. This system does make it easy to remove one side of the cover at a time for easy access to the riders.

Hitch & Tow Arm

The hitch is very easy to use, and the tow arm slides easily onto it and secures with a pin. However, like other hitches of this style unless it was screwed on very tight, it ended up rotated down on our rides and didn’t stay straight.

The joint on the tow arm is relatively stiff, but that doesn’t affect riding at all. It’s only tricky if you need to turn your walk your bike in a 180 degree-turn.
Weehoo Weego trailer tow arm and hitchI did have some issues inserting the tow arm into the receiver on the trailer frame, similar to the problems with inserting the stroller wheel arms (see stroller pictures below). The spring-loaded pin got stuck inside the tow arm, so it couldn’t lock in place—only the manual pin was holding it on (though that is sufficient for safety). It also took several tries to get the pin in because the holes didn’t line up perfectly.

How does it ride?

The Weehoo weeGo rides smoothly, with easy handling. Unlike high-end trailers, it doesn’t have any kind of suspension, but from the towing adult’s standpoint it’s comparable to other trailers.

One major issue I noticed is that when pulling two kids, if one kid leans against the side of the trailer it can rub against the wheel. This is at best annoying, and at worst can increase drag for the towing adult, and ultimately will wear down the cover.

As a Stroller/Jogger

A great feature on the Weehoo weeGo is the adjustable-height handlebar. The heights range functionally from about 36” to 43”. It adjusts easily by pushing in a button on each side, then locks into place.

For casual strolling the weeGo works great and is easy to maneuver with the swivel wheel.  However, the problem noted above of the child leaning against the side and rubbing the wheel happened in stroller mode as well.

I found inserting the arms for the stroller wheel to be a challenge. The stroller attachment has three parts: the wheel apparatus and two stroller arms. The wheel is attached to the arms with screws and a hex wrench, making it tedious to remove. But once it’s screwed onto the stroller arms, it’s hard to align both stroller arms just right to insert them into the trailer frame. It took several tries and a lot of jostling to line them up just right. If you plan to switch frequently between stroller and trailer mode, this could be a hassle.

Then, when both arms finally lined up and went into the receivers, the spring-loaded pin on one side got stuck and wouldn’t release through the hole, like with the bike tow arm (see pictures below).

Braking System

A solid, convenient braking system on any stroller is a must, and Weehoo has cleverly solved the braking problem for a mid-priced trailer without an axle. The brakes, integrated into the wheel guards, are a bit stiff. But despite being sometimes hard to engage, they’re a big step up in both convenience and functionality from the rudimentary strap system on the Allen.

Durability Issues

After only a brief period of use, I noticed some fraying the straps along the undercarriage, and some wear on the rear exterior canvas where it’s pulled tight across the frame. This, along with the issues I had getting the tow arm and stroller arms inserted, is my main concern with the weeGo trailer.  The undercarriage straps could have only been damaged when the trailer was folded (whether in the truck of the car or in the garage), so be sure to take care not to push or slide the trailer when it is folded. Weehoo’s customer service is top-notch however, and stands by their products in the event of an issue arising.

Bottom Line

Weehoo weeGo includes many great features that you won’t find on other trailers at this price point, such as the included jogger kit with a lockable swivel wheel and the fully adjustable-height handle. It rides great as a trailer and it’s comfortable for kids. If a trailer/ jogger combo for a low price is a must, the weeGo is a great option.

If you are looking mainly for a trailer with a stroller option for casual walks, the weeGo will serve you well, though I recommend looking seriously at the Allen double trailer. The Allen was easier to switch between trailer and stroller (the wheel attaches directly to the tow arm), and there were no straps to fray along the undercarriage. Overall, it felt more durable despite its lesser padding, rudimentary brake, and bare-bones buckles. If durability and some design details were addressed (such as pin-holes lining up better), I would recommend the weeGo without hesitation.

    Do you have any updates on the review for weehoo weego trailer? Thanks!

    • I have a few, but currently, Dani, our bike trailer tester has it, so I don’t know too much performance wise. As for quality, the trailer is very well made for the price and from what I saw, a great mid-price trailer. It has supportive seats, rear venting to allow for air flow, but the stroller feature was my favorite. It easily locked into place when running and swiveled when walking. The piece that attaches to the stroller arms, however, did brake on us after the first day. Weehoo quickly sent out a replacement at no charge and the second one has held up just fine. Hopefully within a week Dani will have some more insights for us.

    Hi! I am seriously considering the Weehoo- especially with the current 40% off. I was hoping for a more indepth review? I plan to use what I get for 75% walking/jogging and 25% biking. Really hoping this might be a good answer. What are your thoughts? Do you know the interior measurements? Also wondering if it will fit through a standard sized door as a stroller? I wasn’t sure how wide it was with the tires. How small does it fold and how easy is it to fold? I have a 2 and 3 year old…both small. I also have 2 older boys who like to bike which is why I was hoping for something decent that could do both while keeping my littles safe/comfortable. Any insight you could provide would be great and if you have a recommendation of a better choice I’d love to know (I have been looking at the Allens too).

    • I will pass your message along to Dani, our trailer tester to she if she has any more insights. She is currently working on the review, but has also used an Allen as well as several other brands with her three young kids. For the small time I used it, it was certainly easy to fold, but I am not sure of the width. If you are planning on using it 75% for running, then I would probably recommend a trailer with a larger front tire which will allow for a smoother ride. The WeeGo does lock into place, but there is some give, plus it is a smaller 12″ tires versus the 16″ on a fixed jogging stroller. I would say that this trailer is great for walking, but not the best for jogging. For it’s price, however, it is much better than most in it’s price range.

    Hi! I found your site when shopping for a balance bike and we’ve been very happy with our Scoot–thank you! Now I’m looking for a bike trailer. My kids are newly 4 (and tall) and 1.5 (pretty average). The weeGo and Burley Bee are both around $240 on Amazon right now and I’m trying to decide between them (and maybe the Allen). A stroller feature would be used some but it’s not essential. Most important is roominess/comfort for the kids, followed by ease/smallness of folding for storage/transport. Which of these wins out?

    • Dani

      Hi there, the full review of the WeeHoo trailer is almost done, but until then… If you think you might use the stroller feature at all, I would not recommend the Bee. The ability to convert to a stroller is great, especially if you plan to travel anywhere by bike and then want to push the kids around. You don’t want to regret not having the option! The Allen is really a very good trailer/stroller for the price. So far the Weehoo also looks all right, though I have some concerns about durability. At this point, if you’re not planning to use it as a jogger, I would recommend the Allen. Another great option is finding a used Burley Honey Bee or D’lite on Craigslist or similar classifieds site. They are so well-made that you can get a great value buying one used.

      The Burley wins for comfort, though all are comparably roomy. As for folding, each trailer has its pros and cons, but in my experience the Burley (D’lite at least) takes some hand strength to fold, at least at first. Size-wise, check out the measurements to see what will fit in your vehicle. Burley is shorter but thicker when folded, vs Weehoo is longer but thinner. (I don’t seem to have measurements for the Allen, sorry!)

      Hope that helps, and look for the full review very very soon!

  • Laura Miller

    We are in the market for a trailer/jogger. I plan on taking it with me (trying to lose that baby weight!) when I don’t have anyone to watch them for my workouts. Would this be a good fit for us? I have a 4 and 2yr old passenger. Do you have any other recommendations? Thanks so much!

  • Cait

    Our second is coming in March and since we have the single weehoo I was trying to figure out how to still go out on our nightly bike rides. It would be so awesome if we could win this.

    • Nightly bike rides, that sounds amazing! It would be great if you win this, but if you don’t, this wouldn’t be my first choice as you will really need the baby snuggler for a 12 month old (trailers are too young for less than 12 months). Front-mounted seat are also a great option I would consider when that time comes. Good luck!

      • Cait

        awesome! thanks for the advice. I’ll be sure to check those out and get them on our registry.

  • Myga

    Very informative, thanks a lot for taking your time to create this review! 🙂

  • Jacqui

    Wow…so glad I saw this. I have been going between the wee go and Allen for so long. I couldn’t decide. Was just about to buy the wee go on Amazon b/c I liked the moveable handle until I just read your final comments in the review. Soooo good to know. I will be changing the items in my Amazon cart.

    • Glad to be of help! The design of the trailer is good, but it does need some upgrades in our opinions. We really liked the Allen we tested out though.

  • Vantots

    Do you know what the difference is between the weego 2015 model versus the older model?

    • Sorry, I can’t help you there. The earlier version of the WeeGo weren’t available in the US, so I don’t know anything about them.

  • Denis Karpov

    I am going to buy a trailer-stroller for my two kids.I want understand which I should prefer. I have a good offer (about 200$) on WeeGo and Everyday Traveler. Also I find Croozer for 2 for 300$. Which one will be more comfortable?.
