Chip had one for awhile.  Might message him directly.  Username SBB.

A friend of mine in NW Texas had one also.  He loved it.  I rode his bike one time for about an hour with the trailer hooked up.  Was pulling my first Bushtec with some regularity then.  The N-Line wasn't bad.  Liked the Bushtec much better though.

I had an N Line Trailer for years. Probably pulled 10K miles. It does pull great , but it does have issues when starting, stopping, turning around at low speeds, & removing & hooking it up with the trailer loaded. It's like a wheelbarrow. When pulling it you just need to be aware that it is part of the bike with only 1 wheel that it can & will in the right situation, give you problems.

I now pull trailers with 2 wheels & am more at ease with these trailers. My preference is American Legend & Bushtec Trailers, Sportstar & Roadstar.

Hope this helps.

Ride safe, Dan

Thanks for the info.  Hadn't considered the wheel barrow effect.

The above pretty well sums it up.
Sold my N-line and bought a Bushtec.
I've had the Bushtec 6 years, took it to Bushtec for new tires/bearings and a tune up this year. The fine folks at Bushtec found a few issues and repaired a 16 year old trailer under warranty.  My first trailer was an American Legend, second trailer was the N-Line and the last trailer is a Bushtec.
