    Camping Trailer Selection for Model X

    On my Excel sheet, forgot to say that speed is 55mph. I took it as a standard since it used by almost everybody towing with Tesla X to establish their average. I personally drive at 89 km/hr to be at the same speed used in USA.

    Model X towing a Safari Condo A-2124 trailer

    Like Ecarfan pointed, I did not give the speed. I was assuming that like in our previous share the standard was 55mph. Even me in Canada I use 89km/hr to be in par with 55mph use currently by Tesla X owner towing caravan. Sorry for the mistake

    I have read the paper from Transport Canada and it seems that Airtab is not so efficient.
