Longer cables are nice. I've traveled with a cargo tow hitch on the back and it gets very precarious.

I've gotten so close I've had a sub micron gap between the cargo carrier and the parking Ballard...

I’ve said it numerous times, the charging port should have been in the front. Then you wouldn’t have to take your trailer off to charge. They’ll have some pull-through charging stations, but most will be the parking space type.

I’ve always asserted that the length doesn’t really matter.

Wait, let me think about this. If you have a trailer and you pull in face first, then you have to back up in a standard parking lot with a trailer attached. What could go wrong???

More and more the Supercharger locations have pull through spots. There, fixed. Doesn’t matter where the port is.

I thought the rear steering and the wide-angle rear camera were supposed to make backing up with a trailer way easier? Pull-through is definitely the way to go and from what I understand is what they’ve done in Europe from the beginning.

Pretty sure there's already three version 4 stations in, and who knows how many Magic Dock stations.

Why do people act as though pull through and newer stations won't or don't exist?

This photo looks faked. I bet that's not even the Batmobile

Definitely fake. Toyota don't make EVs either. Not even for Batman.
