Campagna T-Rex – Redesign by Johnatan Cote

Industrial designer Johnatan Cote of Morelli Designers is proposing a complete redesign of the Campagna T-Rex trike. The biggest change is the removal of the roof, which consisted of little more than a couple of tubes in the first place, but added vital roll-over protection and structural fortitude to the vehicle. Coupled with a more dynamic, modern design, the updated T-Rex proposal also incorporates more storage space, doing away with the optional saddle-bags on the current model while increasing much-needed capacity for things like crash helmets and groceries.

    As a current T-Rex owner at 14,000 miles, I have to say I would not have been moved by your design.

    Here are several of the reasons:

    1.) I like the way it looks.

    2.) the design you espouse would like ly be much heavier to give equlivant strength. Just like convertible automobiles. The cage is the lightest structure.

    3.) you dont seam to provide for the windshild that virtually every T-Rex owner has fitted. I have never driven muine over 140mph but I cant imagine holding my head stil enough to navigate in anything near that wind.

    4.) Keeping track of Home Depot stores and super markets (that always have a trailer to get under) is hard enough when yoi have a windshield. Remember, the T-Rex is a lot like a bathtub. It fills up fast in the rain. I feel that your design would fill even faster.

    Just a thought…

    I also own a t rex. I honestly can’t believe that this is the design of the awaited emergence of campagna. It has taken away from the original concept. It just seems that you have removed the car looking factor of the vehicle. Now it seems as more of a cross between a cirbin, ktm, and t rex. If you do produce it like this thank you for increasing the value of my classic t-rex.

    This concept is a HUGE improvement on current T-Rex design.

    Ugly. Sucks. Stick to the original.
