Collapsible - Compact - Lightweight. This is the world's first truly
fold-away trailer and is due to be launched in late 2012.
Towbag is a lightweight, foldable trailer that has been developed
specifically for easy storage when not in use. It is aimed primarily at the
camping and leisure market, but can also be used as a general utility
The chassis of this foldable trailer is made from lightweight aluminium
extrusion, which folds down when not in use for easy storage. The load
carrying enclosure is made from heavy duty PVC, with a sturdy powder coated
steel frame. When collapsed, the chassis of towbag can be stored within the
PVC enclosure for easy, convenient carriage.
The Towbag is Easy to Use
Start - Get the Towbag parts ready for assembly
Step 1 - Unfold the chassis and secure with the locking pins
Step 2 - Attach the axle and wheel to chassis using locking pins

Different, definately different, mind you 200kg payload is quite impressive for a poly bag.By the way I thought you were taking the mickey with the pop n go knickers ...... then I scrolled down the page a bit further .
I can see some advantages to the trailer (less so for the knickers).
I'm not permitted to park trailers anywhere on my property (I keep the camper at my parents') and I'm sure there are others without suitable space to park even a small trailer. A lot will come down to cost though.
Wouldn't fancy the camping gear in a plastic bag, you see how a normal trailer bounces on pot holes, speed bumps etc so I feel it needs some kind of "floor" to put my mind at ease but the chassis is a masterpiece. Instead of a poly bag why not light weight alloy panels.
It looks like a super idea - I often struggle to take bags of garden stuff to the dump so would use it for that. It seems to have a light board at the back but as I watched the video I didn't see any signs of the plugs for the lights to go into the towbar sockets. The price will be the main selling point. If it's cheap enough, then they will sell plenty, if too expensive then they won't sell many at all. The other concern is security - if it's really easy to dismantle, then when you have a stop off at the services, you may find it's gone when you get back.
