    Towbar installation on 2016 X

    Hi all, I have a 2016 X that does not have the towing package. I purchased a towbar and hitch assembly and it’s been a struggle to get in with the only person in my area that installs them. Looking at this picture: It doesn’t look hard to install it, just pull that rear fascia off and bolt it...

    2022 X class iii hitch receiver vertical wt limit

    It looks like the manual may have not been updated recently in regards to model X towing. Towing package has been standard since 2017. Did the model X 2022 refresh keep everything the same with hitch receiver? Is it any stronger? Can it carry more vertical weight than the manual says? Thule...

    Are many people here using a model 3 to tow a small travel trailer?

    A small travel trailer like a Scamp 13, Casita or various teardrops tends to weigh about 1700 lbs or less. I was wondering if anyone here has some experience with that sort of towing? I believe that quite a few people (in California and maybe elsewhere) have had Stealth brand hitches installed...

But I noticed that the hitch weight of the Basecamp...

    Payload, Towing Capacity, and Hitch Weight

    Does anybody know the Payload, Towing Capacity, and Hitch Weight for MX 75D, 90D, and 100D? Assuming that numbers would be different for each model. Thinking more battery equals lower numbers. Of course, more battery equals more range (especially if towing). Need real numbers to...

    Tow Receiver Key exchange and help for each other!

    OK, so we just got another X from Tesla, much like last time they didn't get the little red key for the tow receiver adapter (the part that protrudes downwards and comes in a little black tesla case with 2 keys). Their "fix" is to remove the entire rear tow hitch receiver system and put a new...

    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...

    Hint: Hitch plastic cover clips

    Hi. I use my MX hitch a lot. While the original plastic cover was not well thought out, it does create a smooth surface and a decent seal, so I like to use it when I am not towing. But I ALWAYS struggle getting the plastic clips out with my fingernails. I tried leaving the plastic clips out...

    Question regarding Bosal 2" Receiver Adapter

    The Bosal removable hitch on the Tesla X is similar to the Bosal hitch VW used in Europe except that the ball is 50mm (2") on a swan neck. I was able to source one of the 2" Adapters for the Tesla X and will use it with my Bosal tow bar on my VW Jetta, but I have a question regarding the ball...

    Flat Tow

    I've seen several threads about a request to flat tow both the Model S and the Model X, all of which come back from Tesla as not recommended. I'd like to see the Model 3 designed with the ability to be flat towed behind an RV. There are lots of reasons that flat tow is better than a dolly (not...
