The effect a trailer has depends on how it is used. We use our
trailer to load gear on Wednesday before we leave on Friday. This allows
the patrols to organize their gear and load it without the mad rush
associated with leaving on a trip. The scouts are able to plan on what
they need and load it in an organized manner. Only troop and patrol gear
go in the trailer. Personnel gear goes in the vehicles. If the trip is
a backpacking trip or an "iron man" or a primative camp outing there is no
reason to take a trailer.
The trailer is registration through our charter organization and
covered by their blanket insurance policy. We actualy own two trailers a
small 4ft by 4ft turtle shell trailer which will hold the gear for one or
two patrols and a second one 4ft by 8 ft that can hold the gear for the
entire troop. This allows patrols to do separate campouts without
dragging a large trailer along. This is my $.02
