Tesla Cybertruck RV
Now that Tesla officially announced that the single-motor Cybertruck would be delayed until 2022, it would make sense for the company to introduce a camper / RV for the dual and tri motor models due to their extra power. Well, YouTuber “MotorHomeMan” couldn’t wait, so he rendered a custom fifth-wheel trailer. There’s no details on the sleeping areas, kitchenette, possible bathroom, but it does look promising.

What do you get when a fifth-generation Ford Mustang Convertible is converted into a makeshift Dodger Charger? This monstrosity from Texas spotted by Eviil SRT on Instagram.
