  1. Towing and Trailers
    TL;DR - R1S towed 7,880lbs well and got 1.08mi/kWh - I think an R1T would do much better I've had my R1S for about 1 month. I plan to use it as my daily driver/lifestyle car (trips to the cabin, canoeing, skiing, roadtrips, etc). The part of my life I didn't think it could replace was towing...

    Curious if anyone has thoughts on what trailer hitch might work best for the R1T I have used just a simple Curt 2" without any offset for towing 17 foot boat with my Honda Ridgeline. I have the all terrain tires on the 20" tires and know that suspension height will also play a role. Thoughts?

    In the Tesla Model Y, towing capability is tied to tire/wheel choice: " Equip your Model Y with a high-strength steel tow bar and 2” hitch receiver capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds on 19” and 21” wheels or up to 2,300 pounds on 20” wheels. Tow Mode actively monitors trailer sway and adjusts...
