Tesla and Casita

Well, this was a first for me. We're parked at a campground right off I-35 in central Texas. Clean, friendly place but more of a parking lot with no shade and plenty of 100 degree sunshine. Anyway a Tesla towing a Casita from Washington state pulls into the next spot and hooks up to power, 50 amp for the car and 30 amp for the trailer. So it is possible to electrify RV travel if you want to do it in a couple of extremely small vehicles. I know I'm not the first to see it but it was my first time. After seeing it, I am sure it is not for me.

It would be interesting to know how much power it took to cool the Tesla battery towing in 100 degree heat

If you stop at the next campground 100 miles down the road, you'll get another crack at studying that snail of a setup for another night. Each to his own but not for me. I'd bet the farm they didn't do the math before that purchase. Could the camper run off the car while boondocking? Wonder if they carry a Honda 2000?
