Latest eStream Concept Makes Towing a Breeze

Share this article

Airstream has released a travel trailer concept that will make towing much simpler.

The self-propelled concept recently revealed by THOR industries will save fuel or electric range that could get wasted in towing, a report said. What’s more exciting is the ability to park the rig by remote control.

If you’ve ever towed an RV before, you’re aware of how towing a trailer could cut your range in half regardless of whether your tow vehicle is fuel-powered or electric. This means you’ll have to take more money from your wallet when you go to gas stations or spend more time charging.

Fortunately, the Airstream eStream is an electric vehicle on its own. The battery pack, which is 80 kWh, powers two electric motors that produce an average of 242 horsepower and 60 kg-ft of torque. The objective is to have the trailer be able to carry its own weight—just enough to decrease the load on the tow vehicle, which will save either energy or gas.

Once you reach your campsite, the same battery and 900-Watts of solar can be used to power your rig, giving you up to a couple of weeks of off-grid power.

If you think that is awesome, a system called Move allows you to park the trailer using an app on a phone.

The RV concept was revealed by THOR industry last week. Along with the Airstream eStream concept is the Thor Vision Vehicle (TVV), a B+ electric RV concept.
