big market for trailers for small cars

I think there's definitely a market oppty here, although it will need to be for mini-cars (not just Smart).
I agree, I think there is a big market for trailers for small cars. Smart isn't the only small car out there. There is the Toyota Yaris, the Mini Cooper, the Fiat 500 to name some. I think there are others that are coming since they are raising the MPG average (CAFE) for car companies. IMO; it will give some utility to these small cars.
Do you have photos of the trailer? It would be nice to see what it looks like.
