With a lack of space and shifts in priorities, the concept of private cars in inner cities will no longer be viable in the future. This means that alternatives to private cars are required for the need of transporting goods. There is less transport of cargo within the private household sector than there was a few years ago. Consequently, it is important to envision alternative uses for a bicycle trailer. The concept of a stepladder was identified as the perfect solution, as it is already part of the basic equipment of households and therefore does not require any additional storage space. As a result, a multifunctional product was developed that is suitable as both a stepladder and for transporting loads.
