Ya, it sure seems like they are trying put a little muscle in it.
It will be interesting to see what the price tag ends up being when/if they put it on the market.

I wonder what the towing range will be. My towing range now is about 600 miles on a tank of diesel.

Rvtravel.com did a tow test with the new electric F150 and the gas version towing identical trailers. Both left starting point at same time. The electric F150 made it 80 miles before it needed a charge. Gas version had a few hundred miles left on the tank of gas. I can't remember the exact number.

Charging stations at RV site

How long will it be before we see charging sites at RV campgrounds?
Will the be separate from individual sites? Will the national forest and state
campgrounds be a leader in new charging stations? I doubt it.

I hope people wake up before it gets to that point.

Kind of scary to say the least. I wonder when the upper echelon in this country will wake up and look at some of the facts regarding EV's.

We canít get campgrounds to expand the electrical grid for power sites, how the heck are they going to put in charging stations??
