I want to tow a race car to a racetrack for weekend fun. I’ll probably get an enclosed trailer to lower drag. Unfortunately the track is 160 miles from my house and there are several mountains in the way so range will be tight with the dual motor.

I don't think it's that bad. The current lot of Teslas have power measurement capability, accellerometers and, I assume, clinometers so they have at least a rough idea as to the gross weight of tractor plus trailer. In addition to that one informs the car that he is towing by selecting "tow mode". This, presumably, takes into account at least some of the things you are concerned about.

I've written before about how it might be a good idea to connect the trailer hitch through a load cell.

Because the range will be affected greatly when towing, I will build a custom removable camper with all needed features plus added charging to CT. View attachment 1254

We'll be towing a 22' travel trailer that has a GVWR of just shy of 6000#. It's a Grand Designs 17MKE. We also have the CT trip-motor pre-ordered. I haven't heard much about the CT and braking capability when towing. I'm hoping to see more detail and tests related to towing as we get closer to production. It would be amazing is the FSD could assist with backing the trailer, but we'll see. We live in the western part of the country, so plenty of mountain roads.

Probably won't tow much of anything. But I will use the hitch receiver. I have a bike rack that mounts to a receiver. We also like to use a cargo carrier like the one below. It will be nice to have the air suspension for that. On other vehicles when I load up the cargo carrier it makes my headlights point up into oncoming driver's eyes.

26 feet boat, 30 feet long trailer. 3500 pounds. Very dificult with my old Mazda. With the Cybertruck i will be able to go easily to the Great Lakes and almost everywhere in North America. Without paying a fortune in gas. Can't wait for the Cybertruck
