Mounting two trailer hitches to a bike?

Hi,

I drive a Multicharger and use a Thule child trailer for taking my son to daycare and the hitch for the trailer is attached to my bikes thru axle.

I would also like to use a cargo trailer (eg. Burley Nomad) for transporting groceries and other cargo. Unfortunately Burley uses a different hitch from Thule. I’m wondering if there is any way to attach two different hitches to a bike?

Best Regards,
Lauri

If it were me I’d guess converting one of the trailer‘s hitch makes more sense vs putting two on the bike.

I could be wrong, but I think Lauri is asking about using two different trailers with different hitches on the same bike but not at the same time. It would be dangerous for all concerned to "pull a train" of two trailers behind one bike.

I think that the best more stable, safest solution for @late will be to sell the Thule trailer and buy a Burley Bee child trailer I think they use the same hitch attachment on the bike as the Nomad or should be easily convertible if they don't.

Thanks for your toughts!

@Alaskan is right on point. I would only use one trailer at a time. I actually changed from a Hamax child trailer very recently to a Thule and changing to a Burly would not be my first option at the moment. I’m very satisfied with Thule, but would really like to able to transport cargo when needed.

Best option would be if it would be possible to either attach a second hitch to my bike or convert the Burley trailer arm to fit to the Thule “EzHitch”.

This was my thought or convert the Thule to fit the Burley hitch.

That was a very good idea, I didn’t even think of that being possible.

I wonder if anyone has experience in exchanging the Burley Flex Connector and safety strap to Thules corresponding parts? It seems doable based on pictures online, but I’m guessing they are not compatible without modifications.
