    We're working on something we call the "all-electric project", converting our travel trailer to only use electricity and planning to tow it with an EV truck as soon as we can get one. There are plenty of parts to this, and plenty of challenges, so I created a website + blog to report on our progress.

    My latest blog post is about Rivian and the preview event we attended in Atlanta last year. In case anyone is interested, here's a link (and I referenced Rivian Chat at the bottom, as this has been an excellent resource - thank you!):

    Thanks for the shout out and I'm looking forward to seeing how this works out for you. The trailer doesn't seem super-aerodynamic, but then, I'm not sure if many that size are (ok, maybe an Airstream, but they're $$$). How long is Howie, by the way? (I'm guessing 18 feet)

    Nice guess on the trailer length - it's rated at 19'. For sure it's not all that aerodynamic, and that was a factor in deciding whether we renovate our longtime living quarters or buy something new (link to applicable blog post below). For various reasons, we decided to stick with what we have, and we'll be focusing on weight reduction and airflow improvements to see if we can improve EV range. Lots to play with, once we get something electric to tow it. Thanks for the comments!
