Electric pusher trailer
I'm think of doing a pusher trailer for my first project. I have a 1967 Ford truck that weighs around 4000lbs that it would push. I have $4000 to do the project and I already have the trailer. So, I would need all the electrical stuff plus a drive axle (thinking of a 9in ford). I'm looking to get 25-30 miles pure electrical range out of this. I'm thinking of a 96v system (would that be enough?)
I don't want to convert the truck right now as it is my only means of transportation at the moment. So, going the trailer route will let me get my feet wet, hopefully learn a lot, and help me save some money to hopefully convert a car/truck in the future. I also know there is some concern about jack-knifing with the trailer pushing the truck. But, from looking at projects others have done with pushers, this doesn't seem to be that big of a concern.
