It's the awning. Being extended like it is, it acts as a wing, providing lift and greatly reducing the weight of the Scamp while underway. In prototype, proof of concept stage at present, the ultimate goal is to perfect an "auto-extend awning" allowing Scamps and other eggs to be towed by a Prius and similar small hybrid vehicles.

I pull my Teardrop American Outbacker with our Prius. It's only 400 pounds, though. LOL!

I had placed a 1 7/8inch ball on the rear of our Sears Ride Me On Tractor to help in shuffeling our Trillium around the acerage....

Sorry I have NO pictures though!

Mount the ball on front of tractor and you can manoever that trailer into the tighest driveways and spots. Will also need assistance covering the rear.

I mounted a ball on the front end loader of my tractor. Perfect for close maneuvering.
