Flickr user Deathdog has made a nice utility vehicle pulling an interesting trailer...
I have no idea of the trailer's function, but it's certainly an interesting design.
The cargo pod is for perishable food or other supplies needed at a research or military outpost. Most pods contain an emergency pack of oxygen, food, and water capable of sustaining life for up to 48 hours. This is the two-ton version, but a 12-ton pod could be retro-fitted to serve as a small temporary research station.
Here's the real scoop on this creation -- I was unable to access my notes when I made the previous post:
The ion-drive LUV is shown towing a cargo POD for one of the BASA (Brickton Aeronautics and Space Administration) research stations on the moon.
The LUV is a versatile vehicle, capable of towing an 11 lunar ton load up a 28 degree grade without loss of power. When not towing, the LUV can hit a top speed of 85 mph (although the cloud of lunar dust created at top speed creates havoc for anyone following it)
The POD shown is a 5-ton model used for storing perishable food items. It contains a full emergency kit with solar-powered transmitter, oxygen, and the home version of "Wheel of Fortune."
Inspired by the LUV and its trailer, I created the Bison Mobile Research Lab. Here's the link to my MOCpage folder: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/113554
This is more along the lines of what I envisioned when I built the LUV, but I've very happy with both of them!
