How to make your Mini big


When you don’t research ‘Mini Cooper trailer hitch’…

Let’s face it – most people don’t buy a Mini because it’s the largest vehicle on the road, but because it’s one of the most fun to drive. A large part of the little Mini’s charm is how it manages to turn heads while still being, well; Mini. 

So what do you do when you want to take your bikes, extra cargo and friends to Get Out And Go with Mini? 

You could strap a recliner to the roof and steer with an ingenious system of household cleaning supplies.  Or you could take a look at what Mr. Bean might have invented if he had an engineering degree:  EcoHitch.

Visit our website to see how we make Mini bigger with EcoHitch.
