    Hey everyone. I'm looking to do some good road trip traveling to northern California this fall. Wondering how much space the frunk has. Can it be reconfigured to have even more space?

    Space enough for 1.5 bodies if you get the non-D version

    In my D, I have been able to fit (one) these at various times:
    Carry-on bag
    Full size, fully loaded hiker's backpack with camping mats, sleeping bags and tent.
    Empty propane tank used in outdoor grills (don't put a new full one for safety reasons)
    Small odd items like laptop bag or camera bag, open camera gear (mostly to keep it out sight)
    Banana

    Here's some camping stuff in the Frunk:

    Frunk Camping.png

    That would be:

    * 1 Tent (Big Agnus)
    * Duffle bag with clothes
    * 1 Grill
    * 6 bottles of Wine
    * 2 BBQ sets
    * Handheld Vacuum cleaner
    * Toolkit
    * Gas

    I used to go camping with a Toyota Highlander, and always needed to carry a cargo carrier on the roof, which was generally always full. We didn't economize on what we pack when we switched to the Model S, but all camping supplies now fit easily in it.

    So as a rule of thumb - a Model S with Frunk (full frunk, not AWD frunk) is equivalent to a Highlander with a rooftop cargo carrier.

    On a camping trip, I might have foregone the hand vac for a few more bottles of wine :tongue:

    One kid if they're big, or two small ones.

    My MS holds about 25% more than my Acura RDX did.

    thanks benjiejr, the dimensions on your photo are great, I was wondering how much space was lost due to the front motor. I assume the photo is of your 85D.
    Q: Is the frunk space the same whether 70D or 85D? (do they have same or different front motors?)

    They do have the same front motor. I can't imagine them having different frunks, but cannot confirm.

    aha, thanks. Assume they must be same size then. I thought I'd heard somewhere the front motors were different, I guess I'm thinking of the rear. Thx again

    Running the numbers from above, the D frunk comes out to about 2-2.5 cu ft. I believe the RWD frunk is about 5 cu ft. according to Tesla's specs.
