The smart fortwo is fast becoming the must-have accessory for customers who need a small vehicle to tow behind their recreational vehicle.
Riding high on the demand for towing a fortwo, Bantam Trailers has produced a unique 2.5 metre trailer, designed exclusively to carry the iconic car.
Since launching the trailer onto the market, Bantam Trailers has sold more than 400 and the combination of a smart fortwo and trailer being towed by an RV (recreational vehicle) is becoming a common sight on campsites around Europe.
Alan Pierce, owner of Bantam Trailers, said: "As a long standing smart and RV owner I looked for a trailer to carry my own fortwo and realised there was a gap in the market. The product has caught the imagination of RV owners and I’m delighted that smart has recognised the potential of this within their accessory range."
On the back of the success of the fortwo trailer, Bantam Trailers has developed a four wheeled trailer to carry the recently launched smart forfour, the first smart with four seats and four doors.
Jeremy Simpson, Head of smart in the UK, said: "We recognise that many customers don’t want to leave their smart at home when they go on holiday. The attraction of towing a smart cabrio is particularly high for owners heading for the sun, as they can combine practicality and low ownership costs with the great feeling of open-top holiday motoring."
To mark its move into this niche market, smart will be attending The National Boat, Caravan and Outdoor Show, for the first time. Visitors to the Show can see the full range of smart and Bantam’s range of smart trailers in Hall 5, from 18-27 February.
The smart fortwo range starts from £6,810 OTR.
