I've seen several examples of people who have built pusher trailers, even in California and New York and have "gotten away" with it. Now I know we all have different opinions on pusher trailers as range extenders for our Leafs. But my question is, what legal implications would there ever be for owning and using a pusher trailer? So far they seem to be in a complete grey zone in the USA. There are comercial "pusher trailer" vehicles that have to comply with modern emissions standards. But what about a homebuilt pusher trailer? I mean if a guy went and built one for those occasional long trips would he risk pusher trailers being banned in the next few years? It seems that anyone could hook up a pusher trailer behind a Leaf right now and the law wouldn't do anything about it.
It seems the short number of pusher trailer experimenters hasn't yet warranted a look at any pusher trailer laws. Would I be correct to presume it will probably stay that way?
And if pusher trailer laws ever come into existence, what do think they would be like? A total ban on pusher trailers? Or a "it must meet current emissions standards" set of laws?
