What are the safety concerns of a high vs a low mount trailer hitch?
When you Google for images of "canoe & bike," you find two basic solutions to towing a canoe with a bike:
A traditional axle mounted trailer is modified to have a tongue long enough to load/support the canoe/kayak on the trailer.
A seat post or carrier mounted pole connects to the front of the boat, the boat serves as the "trailer frame" with a canoe dolly (wheels that attach to the boat for moving by hand) for wheels.
Solution 2 offers the advantage of less material and more a portable trailering solution. With this solution the bike and trailer easily fit in most canoes, so you have a fully amphibious combination.
Is there any significant safety considerations when towing with a bike from a higher or a lower tow connection on the bike?
