CyberTruck with CyberTrailer-2.png


This is what I'll be building.

Design in progress.
Some preliminary details:
-large ramp at the back (need to leave the cyberquad somewhere.)
-150kWh pack to offset the range hit and for power when standing alone.
-16 fullsize solar pannels on top.
-HVAC in the top
-Starlink next to HVAC
-2 full size dubbel beds. (1 in front 1 in back)
-two front wheels with small (hub)motors for additional breaking en regen when going downhill. they will double as mover wheels.
-height adjustable for ground clearance (to level with CT)

How will you roll?

How will it turn?

How far can you turn before the trailer and the truck crash into each other?

You may want to go into business producing Camp Trailers, Horse Trailers, Cargo Trailers etc. Nice Concept!

Unfortunately you will not be able to turn. The trailer will come in contact with the truck body with even a pretty small change in direction.
Your inability to imagine that the skirt leaves room for movement is not their fault.

That shape totally could articulate by having a concave space for the tail of the truck and the triangular panels in the front be fly-panels that slid along the outside if the trailer.

I like it, it would be great if the shell is made with 30X steel as well. It's practically a home. 160 kWh and solar could literally last indefinitely in sunny places or need a recharge and emptying of the septic tank once a month.

Crissa is right. At CyberLandr™ we explored a number of trailer/hitch concepts and we stumbled on a few that work well despite the side sails on Cybertruck.


This is a concept worth exploring. Anxious to see a ballpark price.

You're dreaming. But that's what it takes to make innovative strides and eventual success. It's big. It's audacious, and if you science the crap out of this idea, it might just work. Good for you! Do you have a ballpark price estimate yet? Or is it too early?

Looks cool with the wheels far back. Like a semi trailer.

But..... I think the tongue weight will far exceed that of the CT. Just slide the axles forward a bit for better weight distribution....

Might be better to go with aluminum panels to bring the weight down. Pretty simple build though as all flat panels, no rounded corners to fuss with. Might be a bit tall for some over-passes though.

Why leave the Quad and not build an optional insertion space behind your trailer for it?

Actually it can turn sharper than most normal trucks.
