Airstream Mini

A friend sent this photo to me and asked if I knew or had heard anything about it.
Does anyone have any info on this little guy?

This one I posted doesn't look like the one on the GSM site.

Did they do two concept vehicles?

This is the one on the GSM site. Is this as built or is it a photo shop creation?

The GSM micro is a thirteen panel... the one Tom posted is not. Are there two GSM micro trailers?

Cool Trailer. I could think of some good tow vehicles for it. Like a Mini pulling a Mini!

Mine too but back in 1972. It was a 1,000cc. Trailer tires fit great on the extra wide alloy wheels. Not enough power to tow with though.
