    Model Y tent fly for camping

    Any ideas who manufacturers the Tesla specific tent fly seen on the tescamp website? Doesn't look like they make it and I have had no luck finding it.

    CAMPING MATTRESS FOR MODEL S

    Help! Everyone makes a camping mattress for Models 3, X, and Y. But NO ONE makes a camping mattress for a Model S, unless you want to spend a lot of $$$ and space on a Dreamcase. I don't. Those of us with a Model S want to camp, too! I've tried air mattresses--they're a hassle and don't work...

    Model X Tow Hitch for sale

    Brand new, never used tow hitch. They’re on back order for about 8 months. I was going to get a camping trailer but we ended up getting an RV instead. They’re $2,000 brand new plus tax from Tesla, asking for $1,500 OBO.

    Tesla friendly campgrounds

    I wish there was a resource that told me the following: Campgrounds where I can plug in with a pleasant spot for either setting up a tent or sleeping in the Tesla. This means bathrooms not too far away, and a spot with privacy. This is very different from pulling up in an RV. Primitive...

    Dreamcase for Model S fits in Model Y

    Some of you that own a Model S might have purchased a Dreamcase for it. And now maybe you are thinking about buying a Model Y and are wondering if that old Dreamcase would work. I just tested that out, and the answer is - sort of. The mattress itself fits really well, but the support for the...

    Full Car Camping Setup for less than £80

    I've looked at the products from DreamCase, TesMat, Evannex and Tesla and just thought they cost way too much for what they were and the amount of use I'd get out of them. I'll probably only sleep in the car a handful of times throughout a year. Instead, I wondered if I could achieve similar...

    Weekend Camping trip in the model 3

    TL/DR: Just did a weekend camping trip in the model 3, in prep for a week long one (shake out). So much easier setting up and tearing down a campsite. We froze our dinners in ziplock bags and brought a pot to boil them in and a backpacking stove, perfect. For coffee brought my mug and a pour...

    Using DC Power Converter in the Model 3 during Camp Mode

    Hello Community! We've been camping a little more often now, and I want to try sleeping in the Model 3 using Camp Mode. However I need to use a CPAP machine when I sleep and wanted to use 12v Power Socket with the ResMed AirMini Travel CPAP 65W DC Converter. By the looks of the specs and...

    Portable refrigerators for Model Y

    Has anyone done the legwork on coolers that would fit in the sub trunk area- seems you could keep some stuff cool and still have the area available for sleeping on some overnight trips or grocery runs. I can start digging into the Dometic site and report back, but curious if anyone had already...

    Model Y Dreamcase - Double Mattress Sleeping Solution

    Hi - Has anyone purchased a Dreamcase mattress setup for a Model Y yet? I've seen reviews on YouTube for the Dreamcase used on a Model 3 but none yet for the MY. It looks like it's now available on the website for MY but has pictures of it inside an M3 only. Looking at the description/specs...

    Round Trip Cross Country Camping Road Trip

    Hi, friends— My wife and I began doing a lot of research at the beginning of Covid-19 about taking a road trip with our M3 SR+. We thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do a round trip cross country road trip knowing that all we need is an internet/hotspot to keep up with work. We...

    MX Car camping with E-Bike--Charging?

    I'm planning a solo car camping with my MX. Destination is a camping spot 40 miles from a Supercharger. I have an e-bike on order-there are really cool biking trails close to the campsite. Campsite is primitive--no utilities. Question, Is is possible to recharge my e-bike using an inverter in...

    A little Northeast Oklahoma Camping in the X Last Weekend...

    I don't feel like there are enough Model X camping / road trip threads, so I am going to start making some! This was last weekend near Lake Eufaula (the KOA along I-40). Two in the X and one in the tent each night. The weather was outstanding; the only issue we had was road noise (not a...

    Solar EV charger in camping area.

    Right now the charging station net is far away from established, maybe travel from city to city would be nice and easy, but for family trips, adventures to the rural area, all EVs are not in consideration. Especially when camping, which lots of people love to do, needs to carry gears, maybe even...

    My Camp Rig

    I really like the sleeping rig I ended up with for my ModelS 90D: Two folding tables to deal with headrest area (required a bit of modification to get exact height - four cuts and two holes per table). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HW2PMQL These are super compact when folded...

    Cold weather inflatable bed auxillary battery heater

    Safety: Camping

    I’m thinking of camping inside my Model X. I browsed the net and though I didn’t find any stories of Tesla owners camping in their cars falling victim to any crimes, I am still a bit weary of the idea. While campers and RVs can be quite expensive, they are not as exposed as a Model X, nor do...

    Best seating layout for camping

    Hi All Im thinking about selling my campervan, and getting a Model X as a replacement. Obviously it won't have a proper bed or kitchen, but Ive seen people put mattresses in the back of their Xs (Ss and 3s as well) to go camping in. There are even some some custom products that look pretty...

    Camping in the Model 3

    Anyone planning on taking their Model 3 camping? I plan to take my little ones out for over night trips. I am in the process of ordering all the things I need to pull this off before the car arrives. The place where I am stuck is the mattress which is places across the boot floor and the folded...

    Ever tried sleeping in your Model 3?

    Hi guys! I'm planning on taking my new baby for a spin down Europe this summer, and while I'll be packing a tent and some basics, I realize that I might have to spend some nights in the car itself. Have any of you guys tried sleeping in your Model 3? If the rear seats are folded down, it...

    Your Best Tesla Road Trip Advice?

    A month and a half ago I bought a used Model S. Over the holidays I flew to visit my sister. While I was there I got a bit frustrated with my ICE rental car and thought, "Why didn't I just drive instead of fly?" So now I'm thinking about what road trips I want to take with my Tesla. My normal...

    Camping attachment

    I know it’s winter for most, but here in Florida, it’s perfect camping weather. I saw a model S with a tent attached to the back once and googled for tent attachments for the X but came up short. Has anyone bought one that they like and can give recommendation?

    Frunk-sized Hard Sided Cooler?

    I have discovered the endless joy of camping in my 2018 Model S, especially with the addition of the Dreamcase. After a couple of weekend trips, I've determined that there is one thing I need... Does anyone know of a hard-sided cooler that is just the right size for the front trunk?! I have...

    Tipoon Camp Trailer

    I'm really hoping this makes its way to the US. It looks to be a great trailer option for the MX. I'm thinking it would be fairly simple to have a custom fiberglass airflow guard installed on the front to lessen the drag even further. Car-Friendly Camp Trailer Triples in Size

    Using 12v devices in camping mode

    I'm having a MS for a weekend and I need my 12 v => 240 v inverter running in camping mode. I've done this when I'm NOT charging, but how about when charging and using camping mode on Remote S? Anyone tried this?

    Camping with Model S: making it cushy

    We just spent 17 days car camping in our Model S 70D. We covered too many miles for the time allotted, but is was a wonderful time. Here is what we learned: Most state parks and many national parks have either 30TT (120V 30A chargers) or 14-50R (240V 50A). There is an adapter for the TT30...

    Model S Camping mode, Plugged in, Hatch open, Tent filling with A/C!!!

    So you have your Model S and you bought a couple hundred dollar tent that attached nicely to the hatchback. You've pulled into your RV site at the campground, plugged the car in and set up the tent. Using any of the API apps out there (Induction, Dashboard etc) you set your car into camping...

    DIY Tent Air Conditioning

    I just got back from Symbiosis Gathering, a music festival in the middle of hot California. We danced until late in the night and slept in until well after sunrise. If you've ever done this, you know how hot your tent can get once the sun comes up, even in shade. Well, problem solved with the...

    Leaving X overnight at remote trailheads?

    In my 30 years of parking cars at trailheads, I've only had one bad experience (a smash and grab break-in). Considering a short overnight trip (2 nights) where I would leave my X at a fairly busy (dozens of cars come and go each day), but remote (not one right off a highway) trailhead in the...

    Is a cross country road trip to pick up a Tesla a good idea?

    I live in the EV desert of Iowa, and once the MX is finally out, don't really want to wait the extra month or more it will take to get my car shipped here, or to St. Louis or Minneapolis. My reservation # won't be until next year, but I have a question... Is it a good idea to fly to the home...
