Does anybody on here know anybody with a Model X that they tow a trailer with? I know the tow package is an option, but I've never actually seen anybody tow a trailer with one.

Edmunds did two towing tests with different trailers on their long-term Model X.

Plan to spend a lot of time charging. Maybe just camp at Supercharger locations?

That looks like a U-Haul trailer, those things are heavy!

Was hoping for a BITOG'er perspective. I know two people with the Model S, nobody with an X shrug

When did they start calling sedans “SUV”s? Maybe “wagon”? Hatch?

Tesla cars strike me as low, wide, with a lot of mass at the very bottom and well distributed. Plus the electric motors give instant full torque, meaning that that they should be a decent tow vehicle from a power standpoint.

I'm sure it kills range, but I doubt anyone is trying it for the long run.

Plenty of regular cars are used to tow in Europe. Following safety and speed laws, I don't see a huge issue. My Saab was rated for 3500lb!

The range is what's going to be a real mother. Not a good choice for the long hauls.

OVERKILL..might like this article...

Just have to stay a while at the Caravan park to get the range to get back home at 10-15km/h charging overnight.
