Car trailer, reimagined | Polydrops

The Californian design team launched their first lightweight aluminum trailer in 2019, and now they return with a model named P17A designed for electric vehicles. The designers tested the trailer constructed as a mobile room with a 2018 Tesla.

The sleek, aerodynamic shape of the P17 is coupled with energy efficiency. The batteries integrated into its floor can store up to 12 kWh of energy, and its insulation built with special technology reduces the amount of energy required for cooling and heating. This allows the cabin to use air conditioning or heating for up to six nights without the need for an external power source. Owners can also add solar panels up to 520W to the roof.

The mobile room is made truly functional by its built-in storage spaces: a full-size bed fits inside it, and you can even add an optional kitchen module at the rear. By opening its doors, the cabin opens up to nature.
