I don’t own an RV and there may not be many prospective Aptera owners that do. However, I notice that many RV owners tow a spare ICE vehicle behind their diesel pusher motorhome. A sub 2,000 lb. Aptera would be a great spare vehicle. The light weight would not noticeably penalize the 8 mpg fuel consumption of a typical motorhome.
Here’s a trailer for a three-wheeler with a 1,771 lb load capacity:
Unfortunately, it’s too small to fit an Aptera. Regardless, I’m sure someone with welding and engineering skills could come up with a variation of this that would accommodate an Aptera. Then too, a properly designed towbar for the RV to tow the Aptera might be a more elegant solution.
I’ve had the same thought and think the Aptera would be an excellent vehicle to tow behind an RV. I could see using a front-wheel tow dolly with a front-wheel-drive Aptera. The rear wheel would be on the road and rolling freely. A tow dolly is a much lighter trailer but still provides protection to the front-wheel-drive motors of the Aptera.
Hi, Paul. Thanks for your comments. I wondered about the wear and tear on the single rear wheel of the Aptera if the vehicle were to be towed with a tow bar keeping the two front wheels off the ground. Certainly would not seem to be a problem with the FWD model. Do you think towing an AWD model would do any damage to the hub motor? I’m inclined to think it would be OK.
