Is that not a slick looking little thing?
I agree! It's probably the best thing I've seen.
I have a rooftop cargo carrier which resembles the 'body' of the trailer very much.It's thermo-formed ABS and could have served as a mold in which one could do wet layups.
It would be fun to visit with the creator.
Thanks for keeping an eagle eye out for us!

If the thing were done in a foam-sandwich,say R-10 or something,a very small refrigeration unit could offset the 300 Btu/hr of a single 'occupant' plus some wiggle for high ambient temp and relative humidity.
Perhaps the guts from an 115-VAC electric cold-water drinking fountain= small chilled-water HVAC unit.
Also,you could drink the condensate.'Aero Perrier.'
The hermetically-sealed AC unit from a Prius would be nicer.

RXT-B may be DOA

I had a chance to surf for battery pack prices and it was only the chair design which kept me off the floor.
Nissan wants $15,000 for a replacement pack for their LEAF.
That's $625.00/kW-hr.
Since 16-kW-hr is not uncommon with entry-level EVs ,I don't foresee a time when ANYONE would be in a position to do a trailer like this.
Perhaps EV 'filling stations' on the outskirts of town could rent them for excursions.

My thoughts turn to a 750cc Toyota motorcycle with Atkinson-cycle,turbo,Concept-II powerplant (43.7 % thermal efficiency!) with the front fork removed as Walter Korff did with his 3-wheeler,integrated as a full-bodied one-wheel RXT-P (pusher) trailer with gap-fillers for visits to Grandma's,then restored as a motorcycle for the intervening time.
Being gasoline,it wouldn't compete with truckers for diesel (they're beat up enough already with fuel prices).
