TOYOTA CREATING "HITCHLESS TOWING" GADGET
Toyota is working on a gadget that would allow vehicles to tow a trailer or a camper -- without a hitch.
This hitchless towing system is designed to allow two vehicles to play follow the leader. A driver would operate the lead vehicle, while the trailer or camper would follow along under its own power -- but without a physical connection.
If the gadget works, it would allow smaller vehicles to "tow" bigger trailers. Because the trailer would be self-powered, you wouldn't need a huge truck or SUV to do the job.
