Amazing that after all this time some people are still doing it completely backwards though.

SDC LAUNCHES NEW AERODYNAMIC TRAILER

As well as this, SDC have aerodynamically designed the trailer’s mud flaps. They have used Spraydown Vehicle Spray Suppression mud flaps that use vanes with a series of curves to catch water as well as letting air flow through and reducing drag.

On average, the sport trailer can load about three times what you can fit in the trunk of a midsize car.

I always liked this concept. The STELLA Vie is pretty much an enclosed-wheel version of it.

If they cleaned up the front struts and stuff, could be very aerodynamic.

The overall profile is good. Ingress/egress not so much.

I know it needs cabin ventilation, but leaving holes behind the upper coil-over mount seems primitve.

They could use flat composite A-arms as traverse-leaf springs (3D printed airfoils with voids) and make the steering knuckles bio-morphic-ike for small scale streamlining.
