So was sitting around the campfire at my local state park. Thought to myself; retirement looks like an RV, pulling a Tesla. My buddy says "yeah it will have a generator so you can charge while you drive."
I thought about this statement informing him that Tesla's regenerative brake. This means in theory you can charge one while you pull it behind the RV. Obviously it takes energy from the tow vehicle in the form of additional load, but with many RVs like diesel pushers, that drag is very negligible. Whether its 4 wheels or two on a dolly that's for the engineers.
Would this really require more than a software update to use the rolling car to charge itself and then software manage trickle charge keeping it topped off. Seems like a game changer for those living the RV lifestyle. You might be surprised how big that market has gotten the last 10 years.
Roll up to the campground, 200+ miles of charge ready to go, model 3, model s, or even x. It doesn't matter! I'm all in.
