A Study in Contrasts

This is a photo of the University of Michigan's trailer. They've been to WSC nine times, and finished 3rd place five times

This is a photo of Nuon's trailer. They've been to WSC seven times, winning it five times and finishing 2nd on the other two other occasions.

Remember, it's not the size of the trailer that matters, it's how you use it.


  1. While the Michigan trailer is clearly massive, Nuon has used that small trailer in the past just to move Nuna around Darwin before the race. They seem to also use a semi sized flatbed trailer too- typically with an inter-modal office container and their air crate on the back.

    1. Sure, Nuon's got something more serious on the race. But at least they source it locally rather than RoRo'ing it around the globe, and you don't see them making a big deal about it on social media...
