OK, another new trailer I知 NOT sure I'd want

This one is by the guy that made the Cricket:

http://www.taxafirefly.com/

Much more offroady. It's rather modular, so it can go in pickup truck bed or on a small trailer. Looks like you could take a little offroad trailer and just plop this on it. Or fly it to the moon and land it like the LEM, that was obviously this NASA guy's inspiration.

Re: OK, another new trailer I知 NOT sure I'd want

Is that a recycled aircraft container?

Nah, but I guess maybe an inspiration. If you go to their gallery/development you can see some of the fab work.

Looks like some sort of mobile prison pod from a futuristic sci-fi movie...made out of a recycled aircraft container.

It's the Lunar Lander. That's one small trailer for man, one way too small trailer for mankind.

I don't really get it. I guess it's mainly a gear pod that you can sleep in at your destination once it's unloaded. Not much other functionality there.

Especially if you wildly toss and turn like I do when I'm sleeping. I'm sure the legs of this thing would collapse under me.

Saw one of these things going down the road. Guess the guy works with NASA designing space habitat stuff. Strange looking.
