As long as its not for towing , sure.


Good enough for any towing I would ever do.

This is my favourite SpaceX video.

Look at the age and diversity of all those engineers.

Some us like to go far, lol. Wait a few, 5 to 10 years when they build an infastruture and can atually tow for a bit. Right now you could go maybe a hour or two away.

Meh. Even if they lose half of the 500 miles when towing that would work for us. Short of our dually F350 no truck we have had could tow over 250 miles. Our Chevy 3/4 ton with a 350 barely made 200 miles. Worked just fine. They’ll find a market if they can tow a 6000 pound trailer 250 miles.

Problem is you can fuel up you oil based trucks in less then ten minutes. To fuel up the telsa it will take you more then that to unhook it to plug it in. Thats if you find a spot you can unhook it. I'll ne back on the road allready. Thats if you find a station, and its not holiday time with lines. Like i said, wait a bit, it might get there unless something shinier and cheaper rolls out. They will loose half the mileage off the bat and more as you own it and the battery degrades. Check the you tube for the guy towing with the telsa car. It will put you in the ballpark. I'm not waiting a week to get from nj to Florida. If your campground is a 2 hour drive go for it. Its your dime.

Well, always buy what suits your needs.

Finding a station isn’t a thing. The car knows where they are. And V3 Superchargers are reasonably quick. They’ll work good for many, not all.

I was looking at them when i bought the new truck, otherwise i probably wouldn't know much about it. Like i said, in a few years. Unless your close. All good. And the other modles get a lot less the the 500 miles thats like the 70$ model. About 20 k out of my range. And the 45 k i spent was probably 20 k out of range too! Lol.

New hybred f150 looks interesting. I wonder how that onboard generator will work for running AC's on a pull behind. Could be handy for charging batteries when boondocking.

I suspect RV parks may set up some spaces for charging in the future. Who knows. Demand drives changes.

Although I agree that RV parks may set up a certain amount of spaces with a second 50 amp service, any 50 amp site would work if the renter is willing to do a little power management. EG. Allocate 15 or 20 amps to the EV and the rest to the coach or trailer. We have done this a few times. Works. Campground can charge a premium on the site to cover the extra cost. Set time of day allowing charging etc.
