I've yet to figure out how I would get into this bike traile

I've yet to figure out how I would get into this bike trailer...

If I go head first, I can't get my feet in.

If I go feet first, I can't get my head in.

If I go in butt first I get stuck in the door.

Any thoughts?

When you are young & limber, many, many more things are possible (& more-or-less comfortable, too) ... :o ...!

mod the door.

if you make the door about six inches longer toward the bike, your head will follow your feet in.

One thing that struck me about this rig is how he gets in and out but stays hooked up to the bike!?

Even if the photo doesn't show a standard kickstand, I can't imagine moving in that trailer without it
affecting the bike, even if it is leaned up against a wall or something to the right in the photo. It
seems like there'd need to be at least a front platform or something for the trailer to rest on when
you were stopped.

As for getting in and out of it, I think making that overall trailer shape with the whole SIDE flipping
up would make it easier to enter and exit. Plus if you had folding legs attached to the hinged side,
you'd have air available and some weather cover, if it wasn't too nasty. It strikes me as there are
some functional design possibilities with a wider horizontal hinged door opening.

I like it. It's different.

That must be it. He folded his legs over his head.
