The Polydrops Company’s started back in 2017 when married couple Kyunghyun Lew and “J” Cha quitted architectural design and started working on a compact trailer prototype. Forcing interest from electric-vehicle drivers and a year of increased demand due to the coronavirus pandemic, the couples came up with this off-grid, angular teardrop-style trailer meant to be towed by an Electric Vehicle. The Polydrop trailer is also called the P17A, the space-capsule trailer features gullwing entry doors, solar panels on the roof and, batteries built into the floor that generates energy to the LED lights and appliances, which also includes an air conditioner, heater, fridge, induction cooktop, and a 110-volt outlet.

The solar panels can be upgraded to 520W for $800, and the battery capacity can be upgraded up to 12 kWh. A 4.8-kWh battery costs extra money for about $2000, while the full 12 kWh costs about $8000. Polydrops claims that a full charge of the 12.0-kWh battery can power all components of the vehicle including a 5000-BTU air conditioner, heater, fridge, induction cooktop for six nights or more.
