A new concept for a travel trailer!


Thor, and Airstream have come up with a trailer that is also EV assisted! Be sure and check out the link to the powertrain demonstration.

An elaborate and expensive solution in need of a problem.

airstreams are already pricey on their own. add in e-motor drive and the price must be huge!

the addition of drive motor to trailer does not mean a small SUV can now tow a trailer heavier than the vehicle is rated for. you expecting to tow your power-assisted airstream with a honda accord?

if you need an aid to back a trailer into space too tight for a large tow vehicle, then try a cheaper solution like a motorized trailer dolly




Woke!

It's not on my bucket list!


For the price that trailer will probably sell for, I could get a very nice 4x4 truck and camper that would suit my needs a lot better.

I could probably pull it with my 22-year-old Trooper, but that doesn't seem right. A 4k truck pulling a 100k camper?

Here is a different feed, and still not much information!

Probably 10 years too early.

Pretty cool! Give it 10 years to mature, and there will be some interesting options.
