The Cybertruck could be an off-the-grid dream come true.

Cyber Camper

Tesla’s Cybertruck is shaping up to be the ultimate off-road warrior — and it might be just as good as providing off-the-grid power as well.

CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to confirm that the Cybertruck will be able to power a camper or even a tiny home with its battery. When asked whether a user would be able to “plug my tiny house into the Cybertruck to power it,” Musk answered with “yes.”

Stylish Trailer

Tesla has already released renders of what looks like a Cybertruck with its own stylish trailer — but it didn’t quite look like a camper, as Electrek points out.

We’ll have to wait and see what Tesla has in store for the Cybertruck. In December 2019, Musk said that his electric car company is planning a “sick attachment for the Cybertruck,” but didn’t elaborate.

The beastly truck will be able to tow up to 14,000 pounds of cargo and will feature a massive battery, giving the vehicle up to 500 miles of range, according to Tesla.

That also means there will be plenty of power left over in the bank to power anything from lights to kitchen appliances.

The RV community is pretty excited by the prospect. While the truck is set to only debut later this year, YouTuber “Motorhome man” already designed himself a killer fifth-wheel camper trailer for the Cybetruck in December 2019.
