Interesting article. Will EV RVers get the same benefits?

In spite of the nay sayers, its happening, gaining traction, and picking up speed. A preview of the inevitable future.

If you tow 100kmiles per year, you can get similar savings. For the typical RV that does 2-4k miles per year...not so much.

Of course, a lot of these assumptions are based around local delivery trucks, not long haul trucking. If you camp almost exclusively within 100miles of home, it's viable, if you want to take a cross country trip the situation changes.

Wow, who would have expected such an unbiased op-ed piece from a site called "InsideEv's". LOL

If you want to save money and the environment... get a tent and a bicycle. And yes people actually do this and no one gives them grief.

Otherwise yes. An EV RV will work for some. I wish them well, same as the cyclist.

It's coming, whether or not you like it. If you're like me, you'll be driving your car for free forever. If they had a truck ready to roll at a reasonable price, I'd be all over it. EV's and solar are perfect partners.
