The car must be in ECO mode for this to work which means it is on and "in gear". Leaving a vehicle like this is inherently dangerous unless you plan to have someone sitting in the drivers seat the entire time to monitor it and intervene if necessary... It may also illegal under some vehicle codes...

Ok, I think you're just repeating the same scaremonger. What is illegal (in your mind)? It's hard to tell from your reference... being "in gear" or "being on" or "having somebody in the car", or something else?
You don't need somebody in any seat to monitor a car. We can monitor a probe passing Pluto; a LEAF securely fastened to the rear of a 30,000 pound RV can be "monitored". Actually, if the car were to blow up, burn up, or some other terrible thing, I'd hope it would happen while being towed, instead of my wife or daughter actually driving the car.
A Leaf is an IDEAL motor home car, in my opinion, for those afternoon run abouts. Plus, camp grounds have access to plug ins to charge it. I'm not sure if it makes sense to tow the car on the wheels, unless the two drive "half" shafts can be disconnected from turning the motor over.
But, for those times when a fully charged car is needed at your RV destination, it might be logical. There is still the option of running the generator on the RV, and plugging in the LEAF while under tow. But, that obviously could take up to 8 hours at 240 volts. Plus, the load might be so large so as to make your RV useless for other high power functions.
So far, for a fast charge, without a handy L3 around, towing seems the best bet.
