    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Hi folks, I was wondering what kind of travel trailers people are towing with their Model Y. I am really interested in the Airstream's Basecamp (link), and the weight is only 2650 lbs, which is under the Model Y's towing capacity of 3500 lbs. But I noticed that the hitch weight of the Basecamp...

    Does anyone with a Y and the factory tow package transport a dirt bike (or more than one)? My son has a Honda CRF-125 which is about 200 lbs and noticed there are some single carriers out there but most seem to be for class-3. And you know kids... now my younger is interested so seems like a...

    Sold 2020 OEM Tesla Model X Hitch Receiver and Hitch with Keys + Case

    As title states, I bought a bike rack that did not fit the OE hitch so I replaced it with a Draw Tite. This hitch has only been on the car for ~ 1,500 miles or so and never towed anything. Only thing it was used for was transporting a 2-bike carrier. The green stuff on the Bosal is the OE grease...

    Model Y Brake Controller 4-pin Pigtail

    I got my Model Y on June 30th, with the factory hitch already installed. I'm hoping to soon get a fold-up camping trailer in the 1600 lb range for dry weight. It might end up a little heavier when loaded. So, the Owner's manual say Tesla recommends for trailers over 1650 lbs that they be...

    Hitch - Curt Brand 2020 Model 3

    We purchased a Curt Hitch (for bike rake) from UHaul. Model 13449 We installed last weekend and could not get a good tight fit when reconnecting the bumper sides after many hours. On Tuesday we took to a certified Tesla Auto Shop (3rd party) as we assumed we had done something wrong. They...

    Model Y with hitch production M

    I have a Model Y, LR, 19", blue, black interior, FSD on order since Feb 2nd, which I then added the hitch option. I noticed in the tracking sheet that no order with a hitch has a VIN. I also did not find anything on the internet about anyone getting their Model Y delivered with a factory...

    Model 3 hitch install - Spokane

    Does anyone have recommendations on where in the Spokane area would be best to have an aftermarket hitch installed? I'm beginning my research on this (costs etc). Wouldn't be for towing, just for a bike rack. Thanks!

    Model 3 factory-installed Trailer hitch

    Good afternoon, I'm wondering if Tesla is planning on providing a factory installed trailer hitch or not? I thought that I had read someplace that it was supposed to happen this year. If it's not, is it still in the plans so far as it's understood? If Tesla doesn't plan to provide one, does...

    New Curt hitch?

    I just called a local installer for hitches, and in addition to the torklift ecohitch, he mentioned that there is a new Curt hitch available for about $200 cheaper. The main differences that I see are the receiver is not removable and only comes in one and a quarter inch size. Given the timing...

    Trailer Hitch on Model X

    I currently own a 2016 Model X and about to buy another one. One thing I miss in my '16 model is a trailer hitch. All I want is to attach my bicycle rack. Do you know if I have to purchase any accessory before I can use my bike rack? I have a Thule rack that goes into a 2" hitch receiver...

    Model X Roof & Hitch Box

    I saw a few posts and questions on how to extend the limited cargo space available in a Model X and wanted to share my solution. A fully loaded with the 7 seater version of the Model X had very limited room for luggage, which means you can use it to drive your (larger) family to the cinema, but...

    Any guesses on when the Model 3 hitch will be available in US.

    Over the weekend I was about to order a Model 3 when I read that the hitch is available in the Europe. I'd really like this option, but I'm also racing the clock against the July 1 tax increase. I know there's always the after-market option, but if it's possible, I'd much prefer the...

    Would you recommend Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for MX?

    Hi, we are going on a ski trip (and snowboards too) with our Model X, and I have been thinking of a hitch mount carrier to carry the cargos and sports equipment. I have a few questions here: 1. When using the super charger, would the carrier be too big to prevent the car from getting close...

    Stealth Hitch for Model 3

    After trading my S for a 3, I had a Stealth Hitch installed. I highly recommend it. It's well made, easy to attach and detach. I met the owner and we had a long conversation. It was a pleasure to talk to someone who takes so much pride and pleasure in their business. I basically though a...

    Airstream Towing Equipment Recommendations - Sport or Nest

    I hope to purchase an Airstream TT to pull behind our X (90D w/ 20" wheels). I plan on leaving in mid September for a 6,000 mile cross country trip from Southern CA to Ohio (via I-70), down to GA and then back to CA (via I-40). I'm looking at the Sport 16, Sport 22 or possibly the Nest. I've...

    Installed Torklift’s Eco Hitch

    Installed the Eco Hitch on my model 3 this weekend. I can finally carry bikes again! The Hitch went on perfectly. Torklift packaged the hitch very well. I was really impressed with their packaging. The instructions leave a little to be desired but overall they were adequate. I also installed...

    Installed a hitch and wiring harness on my M3

    Installed an Eco Hitch on my M3. I also wired a 4 prong harness for about $25 in parts. The wiring is also completely hidden. It accelerates like I’m not pulling anything. The trailer has standard bulbs and works fine but I’m going to switch them out for LED.

    Tow hitch bike rack?

    Searched for this but couldn't find anything so I'll ask. Now that people are actually driving Model 3's in the real world, I need to hear from other bicycle enthusiasts about how they are transporting their bikes. For several reasons I do not want the rooftop mount which I can get from Tesla. I...

    Model X towing: ball hitch offset

    I've used my trailer towing option to pull a small U-Haul trailer fir a quick trip to IKEA. The U-Haul folks set me up with the attached ball hitch using the "rise" configuration. With this, the trailer was nearly perfectly level with the vehicle at standard height (which is what the manual...

    Model X hitch accessory overload ?

    I have a question : I have the accessory hitch installed as I was planning to carry at least 3 bikes with the Tesla/Yakima rear bike carrier. The problem is I didn't know the hitch would only support 120 lbs and the bike rack itself weighs 40-44lbs. That makes only 76-80 lbs left for the bikes...

    Tongue Weight Limit on Accessory/Towing Hitch

    Does anyone have any insight on the tongue weight limit on the hitch? I ordered the accessory hitch, not the towing package. The Tesla owners manual says the limit is 120lbs, but the hitch itself, the 2 inch Bosal, says 500 lbs with <22inch wheels, and 350 lbs with 22 inch wheels. This 350...

    Autopilot Autosteer with bike or cargo rack

    Does anyone with a hitch mounted bike or cargo rack know what is the impact on Autosteer? I would really like to have Autosteer for long distance travel vacations when the cargo and/or bike rack would be most needed. I did notice that "Tow mode" will allow Autopilot but disable Autosteer, so...

    Did those who ordered the Accessory Hitch, get that or actually a REAL Towing Package?

    I'm trying to decide (within the next 2 days before my MX configuration gets locked down) whether to change my order to include the Towing Package or leave it as the Accessory Hitch. I have NO need to tow, but I need more than 120lbs of vertical weight capacity that the new 2" Accessory Hitch...

    Model X Cargo Carrier

    Is anyone considering this rear-mounted cargo box from Thule? I don't know how it'll fit in back-in Supercharger locations, but definitely seems to fit the bill with the falcon-wing door limitations as well as the aerodynamic benefits compared to roof-mount. I was trying to figure out if I...

    EcoHitch (or other?) installer North of Boston?

    Just got my 85D and could really use a trailer hitch for a bike rack (no towing). EcoHitch seems to be the way to go.
