For years I’d looked at various types and sizes of car haulers trying to find something simple and fuel efficient (lightweight with low drag) that handled so well, in all conditions, I could tow it with my daily driver. I wanted something that was easy for one person to load and unload and secure enough to park anywhere overnight. I wasn’t interested in taking my entire shop to the track or creating a “second home” at my destination. I wanted something purposeful and sleek; an aerodynamically efficient, quality built, lightweight sheath for whatever track weapon or show car I wanted to haul.


Over the course of several years I never found it and frustrated by the seeming lack of quality or aerodynamic knowledge in the trailer industry I finally decided to design our own and have it built by a custom fabricator. That was the first Aerovault trailer, the Aerovault MKI.


When traveling with that trailer starting in 2008 I kept hearing constant complaints from other people towing trailers about their tall, heavy, ill-handling, wind-pushing “bread box” trailers. I’d ask, “Why haul all that unusable air in wasted space?” There was no logical answer but everyone seemed to desire the same things I had. Their comments, combined with all the thumbs-ups and shouts of “Where can I get one?” convinced us to make the Aerovault commercially available.


We now build them in our own dedicated facility, here in Henderson, Nevada, using our own custom-built machinery and special fabricating techniques that are unavailable anywhere else. They are built by experienced fabricators who take as much pride in their work as I do in mine.


The result is the Aerovault MKII, an aerodynamic and secure, no-compromises trailer, which has now been enhanced even further from our original MKI model.


Peter Brock

Meet Aerovault Founder,

Gayle Brock


In 2008 Aerovault LLC was founded. With the Aerovault MKIs being built by a contractor, the Brocks continued their photojournalism work until demand for the Aerovaults outpaced the contractor’s manufacturing capabilities in 2011. It became clear the Brocks needed to jump into Aerovault 1000% and take on production themselves. They moved to the business-friendly state of Nevada and left their photojournalism profession. Brock went back to his drafting table and refined the Aerovault with a more aero-shaped roof and fenders made of composite material. Gayle used the knowledge that had been gained by keeping in touch with current Aerovault MKI owners to redesign how certain features worked so that the Aerovault MKIIs could be built without having to wait for a customer to order theirs. The Brocks began building the new Aerovault MKII production process in 2013 with the first Aerovault MKII being completed in January of 2015.


The pandemic in 2020 brought Aerovault orders to a stop but Gayle saw the opportunity to focus manufacturing on building the additional sizes of Aerovaults she had drawn on her whiteboard a few years before. New jigs and molds were made and when sales restarted in August of 2020 (with no employees laid off during the pandemic), Aerovault emerged with five Aerovault sizes for customers to choose from. There are now more than 300 happy Aerovault owners throughout North America.



The Aerovault joins a distinguished collection of Peter Brock Designs


GM Styling

It started when in 1957, 20-year-old GM Designer, Peter Brock, sketched what would first become the ’59 Stingray Racer (seen to the right) and would later become the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray.


Shelby American

By the time ’63 rolled around, Brock was long gone from GM, joining Carroll Shelby in Southern California in 1961. At Shelby’s, Brock not only designed several cars, he created the Shelby brand look and image, first with the Cobra Roadsters through to the Ford Shelby GT350 Mustangs. In ’63 Brock designed what he is mostly known for, the FIA World Championship Daytona Cobra Coupe (seen to the right). It was the first World Championship for Shelby and America. Other cars of his design that followed were the Nethercutt Mirage, the Lang Cooper, the Daytona Cobra Type 65 and the stunning De Tomaso P70.


Brock Racing Enterprises

At the end of the ’65 season, the Cobra program was disbanded in favor of Ford’s GT40 racers. Brock left and founded Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE), designing another set of historic, groundbreaking beauties such as the Hino Samurai, the Toyota JP6 and the Triumph TR-250K. Getting the attention of Japanese manufacturers, Nissan Japan made BRE the factory Datsun race team for the Western half of the U.S. BRE is credited for the acceptance of Japanese cars in the U.S. by winning 4 National Championships from 1969-72 with two Championships each with the BRE Datsun 240Zs and BRE Datsun 510s over the likes of Alfa, BMW, Triumph and Porsche.


In 1973 Brock turned his attention to the new sport of hang gliding. He founded Ultralight Products (UP), becoming the largest hang gliding company in the world, designing the best and safest hang gliders in the possible. Brock became known for his innovation and industry leading safety standards.


Instructor / Photojournalist

By the late ’80s, Brock walked away from flight and returned to his first love: cars. Brock became an instructor at Art Center College in Pasadena, CA teaching the history of automotive design and aerodynamics. Brock soon became a highly respected author. Brock’s wife Gayle was an award-winning manager in the computer industry (e.g. Apple, Microsoft) and left her corporate executive position in 2005 to join Brock fulltime as photojournalists for the automotive industry.
