I'd like to see how it works on poor surfaces, but in theory it should corner much better than my Babboe - that needs to be slowed down round corners or it tips.

I had a go on an upright tilting tadpole trike (not a cargo one) at the Mildenhall Rally this summer.  It steered like a bicycle, rather than a tricycle, with a heaviness a bit like you'd get from a mountain bike tyre and some front panniers (but without the associatedrolling resistance).  Cornering was fine, and stability under front braking was astounding, even on grass.

It should make cornering with a load with a high centre of gravity much easier than a regular trike, though they don't mention a lock-out on the tilting mechanism to make it balance like a tricycle at low speed.  That would be extremely desirable on a cargo trike!

Good point, one of the reasons I chose a cargo trike rather than a bike was the ease of balance at low speed - helpful when negotiating hills and junctions...
