Default Electric RV

Nissan based electric RV. Can't wait for a Tesla/Westfalia RV! Elon is planning a pickup, haven't seen anything about a delivery type van.

Dream:

1. 500 mile minimum range (I use 400 mile range to be safe on the Westy; sometimes push it to 430 miles if all freeway driving and fuel gauge looks good)

2. Fast recharging (couple minutes) Ultra-fast rechargeable batteries are in the works. Various companies are aiming for a couple of minutes.

3. Self-Driving (Would be nice to take photographs while driving; or take a nap, surf the web; etc. How do self-driving things work with windy weather to avoid moving into other lanes?)

That would be perfect for boondockers.

This couple’s amazing Tesla-powered Volkswagen van project hits the road!
It’s really uplifting to see this couple’s contentment and tears of joy when their major EV conversion project has finally come to fruition. They’ve been working for six months to convert a Volkswagen T3 van to a fully electric vehicle. The van was purchased a year and a half ago. Then, plans were made to electrify it after watching another YouTuber’s (Jehu Garcia) electric car conversion videos.
