Camping With Electric Vehicle

Have You Got an Electric Vehicle Yet Want to Go Camping?

You are at the right place! I will share some of the guides to a safe camping trip with your EVs. 🚙


Plan Your Charging

It is very important to plan your charging throughout the camping to avoid range anxiety and enjoy the time with your loved ones.

Understand Your Charging Speed

Understanding your vehicle’s maximum charging speed, as well as the charging speed of the station, will give you an idea of how long you’ll actually need to charge. A fast charger can have you ready to go in about an hour, but a slow charger could mean staying at the location overnight to fully charge.

Nearby Amenities

When possible, charge in an area that has food, groceries, or even a point of interest nearby. For example, instead of buying all the groceries for your trip before you leave the house, cover a few hours of driving and let your first charging stop be the opportunity to stock up on food. This approach will go a long way to help the time at each charging stop pass quickly.

That said, be careful not to get caught up in the chase for maximum efficiency. Overlanding is just as much about the journey as the destination. If you find yourself waiting on a charge, take a moment to slow down. Pull out that book you’ve been meaning to read or call a friend to catch up. You could call it “unplugging while plugged in.”


Factors Impact Efficiency and Range

  • Off-Roading
  • Cold Weather
  • Trip Length (expect a couple of miles of overnight battery drain
  • Aftermarket Gear 

Skycamp is aerodynamically designed which is much accessible with your EV impacting less range than other bulky Rooftop tents. When you choose to camp with rooftop tents and with a lot of stuffs, you need to think about their impact on range as well.
