Crazy Trailers or Crazy People? Both

Aug 23, 2007
I've witnessed with my own eyes that people can come up with some crazy ways to haul things. Remember the Beverly Hillbillies, how they just tied and strapped everything to the old Ford? Now I've seen the modern version of this countless times, and it can be a scary experience following this vehicle down the road. But what about unique trailers, have you ever seen one that caught your eye when you were driving down the road? There wasn't anything unsafe about it; it was just a unique trailer.

Motorcycle Gas Tank Trailer
One you might have seen was the prototype of the new and unusual motorcycle pod trailer (where the motorcycle rides inside for transport). This trailer was just entering the production phase when unforeseen circumstances put things on hold for a bit. Shaped like the gas tank of a motorcycle, this trailer will have people doing a double take on the highway if it ever gets out to the public. What is so unique about this trailer is that it can be custom painted to exactly match the paint on your bike.

Homemade Travel Trailer for Under $100
Another unique trailer dots the country and can be yours for $100 or less. This trailer is a make shift camping trailer. What the owner has generally done is take the bed of pickup truck minus the cab and welded onto it the top half of a camper. After applying a trailer hitch, he has created a trailer that is generally the talk of the campground. Don't worry if you this exact trailer. Keep your eyes open, and eventually, you will. These homemade camping trailers are not that unusual in farming communities, although their safety is questionable. I'm not an expert, but doesn't it just make a lot more sense to keep the camper cap on a pickup truck that actually runs? But that wouldn't be very unique, would it?

And there are many more unique trailers to be found. All you need to do is keep your eye open while out on the road or visit one of the many car shows being held all over your state and beyond. The truth is that there could be as many unique trailers out there as there are drivers. You too can make a unique trailer. All you need is a little imagination and a little knowledge about trailer construction and safety.
