    Last night I parked next to an old VW camper and it got me to thinking. I could see a Tesla camper someday. Could drive as an EV to campgrounds then plug in for creature comforts, etc.

    Maybe start with an X and do a conversion? First issue.......who would take an expensive vehicle and sabotage / modify it to create a camper? Second issue........the present gull-wing doors, while great for entry into seats could affect conversion options. Third issue..........the roof, glass and gull wing hinges and all, would prevent any kind of "pop-up" design to increase headroom.

    But, maybe someday such a vehicle could be produced. Just putting it out there for all to think about.

    You could convert an old VW van to electric.

    Or just wait for the VW ID Buzz

    Obvious thing is to wait for the Tesla pickup and put a camper on the back. That is if you can wait 7 or 8 years or so.o_O
