I like it very much. The important innovation is the aerodynamic skirt/fairing between the CT and trailer. A fifth wheel hitch can support much more weight but the bumper hitch may be sufficient and would have the aded advantage of usable space in the bed that can be accessed from the cab (if there is a pass thru). More please Leander!

I LIKE THE DESIGN BUT I wOULD MAKE A SMALLER VERSION WITH TRADITIONAL hitch so I could utilize the vault but then again I don't need two double beds
then Telsa own teased version is the one for you.

It's actually not a fairing but utilized space.
the CT bed itself will still be mostly usable up to the sidewall height,
but the cover needs to stay open.

As they might say across the pond;”Good on ya mate”. In your spare time can can ya work up an affordable “Slide-in” version for this ole miner. Gotta keeper light and covered in PV panels so it can charge the CT for the trip off the mountain. Fix it so it be like them there satellite thingys where ya push a button and it sorta exploads into this massive solar array?????😀

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?
DOPE.
I am buying my truck to live in it and well, THAT'S DOPE.

Tri-motor, tricked out
Working at an interior lay-out atm. I will post an update sometime later.
Please pay special attention to your weight and balance, designate every item on the trailer bed's location and it's weight and be able to prove it will ride safely on paper before assembly. From every fastener to skin to floor covering, etc.... not by chance but by careful calculation and proving your theory. Much cheaper and safer that way. I see ample opportunity for some solar panels.
Good luck.

Does that have an inboard or outboard motor?
It might even float, so you could use an outboard motor.
at it's max load (~7000kg) it will sit about 50cm deep.
Maybe a cyber truck could pull it as a tug boat.

European version can't be more than 3500kg loaded (B+E licence with loaded CT at 3500kg) so to leave allawence for gear and stuff, the trailer itself should be around 2500kg max in weight.

But I do actually have some ideas how to make the trailer
amphibious on its own. (not sea worty or such)
Stability will be key.

wise advice.
I' did already moved the wheels forward for better weight distrubution.
most of the weight wiil be very low just above the axle height.

You are definitely on to something here. If your trailer was also a house boat. Or essentially a houseboat that looked something between a houseboat and a trailer similar to what this guy came up with so you can just back into the water and unhitch and away you go and then come back and go to the mountains and take it camping. OMG. You heard it here first folks!

Looks fantastic, good job!

As you've mentioned, I'd def. like to add the solar panels onto zee roof - whatever there's room for, 6 to 12 kw??? (y)(y)
