W hen you are on the campsites in and If you look around abroad, you can quickly see how caravan owners buy their towing vehicles. Heavy SUVs, station wagons from the middle class upwards and large vans like a VW Multivan or a Mercedes V-Class park next to the caravans in the plots.

Camping alternative for drivers of electric cars

That has of course reasons. Large diesel engines with a lot of torque are still the first choice for a car that at least occasionally has to pull a heavy trailer over mountain roads or long motorway climbs. Occasionally you can also see Tesla Model X, equipped with a trailer hitch as standard, with a caravan behind it pulling electricity on a Supercharger.

supporting its owners. At least if the household has a photovoltaic system on the house roof. Unless it is fed into the public grid, the electricity generated here no longer has to be channeled into an electricity storage system that has to be purchased separately. The caravan batteries can take it in and also release it bidirectionally.

Solar cells are also mounted on the roof of the e.home coco. With this, as well as with the electrons from the battery, you should be able to be self-sufficient on vacation for longer, so you don't have to rely on a campsite plot with an electricity connection directly at your destination.

In the first half of 2019, Dethleffs wants to make a demonstration trip to Lake Garda demonstrate how the e.home coco works. The timeframe for a series start and possible prices are currently not mentioned.
