"There are many who have put trailer hitches on the Smart. Uhaul makes a hitch for the car. When I lived in Dallas there were several member of the DFW Smartclub who pulled small trailers. If you go to smartcarofamerica.com/forums you will be able to…"

"Didn't I just answer that question. Teardrops are to heavy for a 2000 pound vehicle. You don't want to go over 500 pounds. Check out the timeout trailer http://timeouttrailers.org/default.aspx Several smarties have had good luck with them "

steve,
i have been a reservation holder since jan. 2nd as well. i have not heard anything from a dealer (i live in the city)...when i called smart they said i haven't been "assigned" a dealer yet. Have you officially been assigned a dealer. my dde has been moving around but currently starts on 8/4. I would love to compare notes. thx

hey steve -I have the same date. Maybe our cars will be roommates on the boat??? Mine will be white/black on the outside, grey on the inside. I have a plan with a friend to put solar film on the roof and run the air conditioner off of it to preserve the mileage. Custom hybrid.
I just learned (if accurate) from this website (elsewhere) that you can get extra body panels (at the dealer when you first get it,you can even get a whole set in your second choice color), so I'm planning to get an extra roof panel for my friend to use to set up the solar.

Since this setup should allow me to run the air conditioner all day in the summer, even when parked, it should protect my interior from the gawd-awful intense sun we now have in the high-desert where I live. Maybe I should name her "frosty".

"Jelly Donut" - that is awesome! Ooh, maybe I will rename mine to Red Velvet like the cake! The hubby picked the colors. I was put off by the orange hue to the red at first, but it has grown on me. Zippy is actually an orphan, but we were lucky enough to get the same color scheme as our order. I LOVE our Smart! We were not contacted when it was our time to order, so we ordered a silver/silver/red Passion last month, but I don't know if we can afford two.
