I purchased a 7x14 by 8.5ft tall enclosed trailer to store/travel around country/shows. I had planned on using a Honda Pilot to pull the trailer and figured out quickly that wasn't going to work as I couldn't get above 55-60 without the Pilot shaking. The trailer on wheels is over 9ft tall so a lot of drag. I am going to test pulling with a F150 as they are about a head taller which should help cutout some of the drag. The other thing I am going to test is a high roof sprinter van. If you plan to travel short distances this trailer and most vehicles will pull it fine. For long distances I will be doing, not so much. I am thinking a really custom trailer with 6' sides with a 1' foot wide section in the middle at 8ft then having the 6ft side angle to meet up with the 8' middle would be way less drag. I am trying to talk my GF into taking gyro lessons so I can get a 2nd Nano and we can fly together. If that happens, I will most likely get a trailer made to fit 2 Nano's using the custom build above. More to come on driving test results. -I did put 280 lbs in the front of the trailer to get 10% tongue weight (my trailer weights 2700 lbs) and it did help but not enough.
