What about an airmod-trailer on a smart?

The trailer would be long enough to sleep in. Would be perfect: 2 L/100 km diesel or 3 L/100 km petrol and a place to sleep in.

thanks for the link
Which trailer i take, it has to be modified to improve the aerodynamics of the towing vehicle.

The overhang of the airmod-template is quite long so a modified trailer would be better as attaching it to the car. I read some reports about modifying the actual vehicles and attaching strucutres to it, like the great "Streamlined Citroen ZX". But are there also attempts to transfer the overhang to a trailer?
The gap between towing vehicle and the trailer could be a problem.

The camp-let tent trailers are ligt and low profile, so It wont be a big problem, even not for a small car as the Aygo or the smart, should they be allowed to tow a trailer....

My point is only this: Get a 2.hand small car - Aygo or Smart - should fit your bill at reasonable price also the running cost are low.

Good hunting

But i want to improve aerodynamics of the towing vehicle. So i dont need a low profile trailer, but one that completes the aero-template (simplified).
