    On topic, the Trailer functioned as a kind of forward combat base kind of thing, housed the Roller drone, and could serve as a repair bay. Much more than just a weapons stand and jetpack.

    I don't think it ever did anything in G1 except for one episode where Prime went bad. He opened it in that episode.

    His Trailer transformed and shot off Megatrons Fusion cannon at the end of MTMTE part 3.

    It also was great at turning invisible and making his Truck mode 'complete'.

    This. It's the backbone of what most discussions on the franchise have been about. What else would be nerd-rage and argue about? ;)

    He uses his trailer on occasion, including using the weapons base, deploying roller, and carrying injured autobots. In general its shown to pull back off screen when he transforms int robot mode and pull back up whenhe transforms back into vehicle mode. My assumption since the 80's has been that the trailer its self can move on its own and just drives out of the way when not in use.

    It does bring up the question of why he had it in Return of Optimus Prme. Were the autobots just hanging on to the trailer that whole time?

    Rodimus I've always been iffy on. The trailer is never shown as a separate piece in the cartoon even though the toy is two pieces. I'm wondering if maybe he was meant for the trailer to be part of his transformation. The Titanium Rodimus toy certainly supports that conclusion.

    Seriously I once saw him put a bunch of mamoths and barbarians in it. Also he saved Wheel Jack when he got knocked out of the sky.
