A very interesting trailer concept


Steph and Dud B

Recommended Posts

They're taking deposits now. Some ideas mirror the recent electric Airstream prototype but in a very different implementation. Specs on their site (2nd link). Will be interesting to see if they succeed.

That is a nice looking trailer. This the worst website design I've ever tried to use.

Yes! Took me a bit to figure out how to get to the floorplan and specs.

The remote control looks useful!

Wonder if you could ride inside it? Wife took the truck into town and you want something from the camp store? No problem! Just drive your trailer down to the store! LOL!

I'd do it just for the reactions. Drive it down your row of campsites and watch the look on your neighbors' faces as the random trailer rolls past.

Probably best that I don't buy one......

They had a nice little launch video. Interesting concept and loaded with a huge battery. Not sure how needing a level 3 charger to charge that huge battery will pan out. Hopefully the 1 kw rooftop keeps it pretty topped of as no way do I want to pull that into and try and charge at a level 3 power station while on the road. Good luck finding a way to get that into a spot. 
 

Also since it has its own electric motor. how much of that solar power you gain while underway is just eaten up by the trailers electric motor? 

They are still pretty sparse on details. The idea of using privacy glass to help increase the feeling of space is interesting but feels more gimmicky then anything (although I do think privacy glass is really cool).

Were we 20 years younger, I'd likely be on a plane to check that one out.

Hope they bring the prototype to the Tampa rv supershow.

I think that's one cool trailer. 

Love the rising/lowering  nose cone for aerodynamic efficiency. Single axle, for 6200 lb ?  The twin skinny front wheels wouldn't be great on our mountain property, but probably fine at home with the integrated self drive. 45 kw battety is amazing.

Some great design minds. We'll see how it works for them.

Another look at this trailer can be seen HERE.

With a "powered axle" the base price is $125,000.  With no "powered axle" the base price is $105,000.

If you already had a big truck you could skip the powered axle and all that battery capacity is for camping. $105k isn't that much more than an Ollie L2.
