We have now.

Very nice trailer, all the individual components are best-in-class.

and then they roll out a Shelby Daytona coupe replica.

Needz collapsible boat tail like tractor-trailers, otherwise not all THAT aero but it's a tough job to make them aero and functional. The belly pan is probably the most aero thing about it. As Hucho points out, excess front radius beyond that which promotes good flow down the sides and roof doesn't make it more aero; in fact it may be less aero because, in addition to the extra long tongue, the tow vehicle/trailer gap is larger and that's an aero no-no. Probably costs more than my house but it looks quite nice.

I agree, it wedges air up, does not taper down at the rear.

It is low slung and cool looking, I'll give it that much.

Over the course of several years I never found it and frustrated by the seeming lack of quality or aerodynamic knowledge in the trailer industry I finally decided to design our own and have it built by a custom fabricator. That was the first Aerovault trailer, the Aerovault MKI.
Oh the irony of it all.

He knows what will sell, and how to sell it.

Good for him.

My first thought was pop-top! It needs more headroom to be livable. It would be like a big Airstream Basecamp.

That hitch ball probably cost as much as my whole trailer.

Some great manufacturing, maybe not too refined on the aero though. Far more slippery that a u-haul or similar length toy hauler I would guess.
