    There was a thread about this very topic a while back. The trailer is a very neat thing to look at, but maybe it's not really much more elaborate than a touring cyclists 2-person tent. In the latter case, his feet would be protected from the rain.

    I think that's going a little too far. How about a nice 110 square foot tiny house instead?

    If I could find somewhere to park it around here, I'd be very tempted to try it.

    I've been quite into the tumbleweed houses for a while now. On the other hand, how about building a moderately larger and more substantial version of this trike-house, and using a good high torque electric assist to help move it over hills and such?

    That sounds real interesting. I wish you'd start a new thread and tell us more about your plans.
