It's been a while since the last time I saw another trike pulling a camping trailer, around 2 years ago, and that was a 2-axle trailer noticeably larger than this one.

Looks like bandaids were designed in everywhere with no prethought. The front fork is a prime example of how not to build a trike. Can you say rolling rain drench??

Cant see the left rear fender well enough to determine if it matches.

Most of the forks I see in Brazilian trikes are built that way.

Left and right rear fenders actually match each other, even though they don't match the fenders of the trailer.

Look at all the reinforcement bars and the humongous length springs just to have enough trail without flexing. Actually not sure if the effect is trail or caster. Proper springers would have larger down tubes or solid bars. Don't do it that way here, too much monkey motion.

Thanks for clarification on the other fender, btw

I actually meant each of the three 'axles' has a different type.

Yes, they did. AFAIK the trailer was not made exactly to match the trike, which could eventually have been an excuse to match at least its fenders with the rear ones of the trike.

Via just A Car Guy:



The narrator is hard to follow, maybe a mix of English and Hindi?

I would still be quite skeptical regarding a trailer with flexible sides, mostly due to security concerns.

Quite usual in videos from some countries in Asia to see a mix of English and the native languages.
