    This may have been discussed before, but I searched for it on the forum and found nada.

    Would there be a market for Aptera or a third party to produce a trailer that would be suitable to haul an Aptera? The tadpole design of the Aptera might have been able to fit this trailer that was designed for transporting a Can-Am trike. However the Aptera is too wide.

    An Aptera would make an ideal, lightweight asset for a diesel pusher RV owner if there were an appropriate tagalong trailer.

    Hi Ray

    There are wide “over wheel design” trailers that are typically used for towing multiple snowmobiles with 101” wide deck. But their total payload is just above the 2200 # So from a safety standpoint, not the best. I suppose you can share the Aptera details with them for a safe suggestion ?

    I believe the Aptera is now 177” long too

      Thanks, Len. I was so focused on the width I forgot about the length!

        Ray, maybe it is time to sell the ICE RV? or maybe look into this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJmfmbLRTsw

          LOL. I’m not an RV owner. Way above my pay grade;) Intriguing video though.

        The tail of the Aptera could be fine hanging beyond the back of such a trailer of sufficient width so long as the back tire if properly secured on the bed.

    Maybe the 14 footer will do…

      Looks like it can handle the weight. The issue would be getting the 3 wheeled Aptera up onto it. We’d need a third ramp for the single rear wheel.

    That (three separate aluminum ramps) can easily be had from any number of off-road bike shops. Or just two! After the fronts get up there, move one over.

      Of course! Why didn’t I think of that?
