notes:

consider relocating sunlight roof vents to maximize top.

side sub assembles to repurpose the fit in the bed to work with other trucks snugly.

ease of removal and reattaching at campsite, quick lockdown connects, to give users options that way they can use the tonneau cover charging in addition to the camper.

you may have already considered, ruled out or think I’m foolish.

Cheers

I like this camper plan, but I'm concerned about the portion of the camper over the tailgate. You may not be able to use a supercharger with this configuration -which would be really important on roadtrips. If you have ever used a typical supercharger station, the pedestal is at the middle of and the back of the parking stall. I think the tailgate needs to be up and locked, and the camper extending out over the closed tailgate. Even then, you need to measure the hight of the supercharger pedestal to make sure the overhang is over top of it. Yes there are side access superchargers, usually 1 or 2 at a station, but my experience is they are usually the first to get occupied & you'd likely need to access the centre back of stall pedestal ones more frequently. I've backed my Model S with a hitch mounted rear bike rack into one of these several times, and it's tough to get the cable to reach the plug port. I've had to remove the whole thing just to charge on an occassion or two, which is a pain in the butt.

I'm also wondering how one would tie down such a camper. Would the L-Track or T-Slot be strong enough to hold it down, or would you need a traditional tie-down?

I'm hoping that maybe Tesla will come out with some sort of extension cord for chargers. I've seen people have issues with their outdoor chargers depending where they park and I know I would definitely buy it just for peace of mind if I had a setup that would possibly cause an issue.
