Similar Polyaboloes Tiling a Right Trapezoidal Triabolo

A polyabolo or polytan is a plane figure formed by joining equal isosceles right triangles along equal edges. A few polyaboloes can form a right trapezoidal triabolo by joining variously sized copies of themselves. (I use the term trapezoid in its North American sense. In the rest of the English-speaking world it is called a trapezium.) Here I show some examples.

The tilings shown use as few tiles as I know how, and are not necessarily unique under this condition. If you find a tiling with fewer tiles, please write.
