Something like an Outlander PHEV, or even a Volt, towing an Airstream (or more traditional trailer) with its own solar PV system could come close to the above. The size of the trailer would be limited by the tow vehicle, of course. A Bolt could be used with a smaller trailer for a full EV rig.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Tesla semi cab and travel trailer. :mrgreen: Probably can go a long ways because a travel trailer is a lot less weight than a loaded semi trailer. Cab seating arrangement might need a slight shuffle.

A full size semi trailer with the front half made into luxury living space and the back half set up with suitable loading ramps for motorcycle and LEAF would be perfect. :mrgreen:

Short TSLA! Buy LEAFs and stockpile them, and sell them in a few years as "classic EVs". Bonus: in just 18 more years, 2011s will be considered antiques! Buy and hold TSLA!
