Tesla Campers & Trailers
Teslas are the number one selling, performance-driven EVs. If you own one of these eco powerhouses and also happen to be an outdoor enthusiast, you may wonder, “Can a Tesla tow a camping trailer or haul gear such as kayaks and bikes?”
The answer is yes—Tesla vehicles can tow certain pop-up campers and trailers. But, Tesla owners will need to check a items before purchasing a camping trailer. First, you will need a hitch on your Tesla if it doesn’t have one already. Tesla trailer hitches can be installed at authorized Tesla service centers or at reputable trailer hitch installers in your area. Second, you’ll need to check the towing capacity of your specific model because some Teslas can tow more weight than others. For example, the Tesla Model X has the highest listed towing capacity among Tesla vehicles, with a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds (2,268 kg), while the Tesla Model Y has a listed towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds (1,587 kg). The Tesla Model 3 has a listed towing capacity of 2,000 pounds (910 kg). Check your Tesla owner’s manual for your exact towing capacity as each vehicle is different, and some vehicles come with towing packages from the factory. (Towing capacities may also differ in future model years – the specs in this article were documented June 2023).
