There are many posts about what the CT can do, like go camping, load up most anything, out accelerate a Porsche, etc. But is there anything a Cybertruck CANNOT do?

I'll start:

Park in a Compact Stall :cool:
Drink gas

tow my 5th wheel trailer, I don't see how you could mount the 5th wheel in the bed floor without putting holes in the battery.

There are aftermarket accessories for that too.

Really not that difficult to make a reasonable guess. If you tow a 10000# trailer with your Ram 1500, you get probably 5-7 MPG. Let's say that is 50% of your normal MPG.
Cybertruck will be the same. If you have a 500 miles range normally, you will get probably 250 miles with towing. Of course you don't really get 500 miles on the highway. Probably more like 400, so towing real world at 70 mph will get you around 200 miles of range.
Just for reference, when I pull my boat with our Sequoia, we get 5-6 mpg and stop to fill up with gas every 2 hours or so.
It's not quite that simple. The Ram is turning a lot of fuel into heat on a normal basis and pulling a trailer, it may just be more efficient than just a straight line calculation.
