Pebble, a California-based startup, has unveiled a new 100% electric travel trailer. The Pebble Flow is designed to eliminate the range reduction caused by towing a trailer—it’s self-propelled, and includes its own battery, which can be recharged by regenerative braking and several charging options.
The Pebble Flow is 25 feet long, and requires a towing capacity of 6,200 lbs. It sports a 45 kWh LFP battery that can power all the trailer’s appliances, and a 1 kW integrated solar system. It supports both Level 2 and DC fast charging. When parked at home, it can be used as an emergency backup power source.
The Pebble Flow is loaded with high-tech features (some optional, some standard), all controlled by the Pebble app:
- The dual-motor Active Propulsion Assist System is designed to make towing—whether with an EV or a legacy fossil-burner—“safe and effortless.”
- The Magic Hitch feature positions the trailer and automatically hitches onto the towing vehicle.
- The InstaCamp feature works like one of those magic gadgets in an old cartoon: the push of a button deploys an awning, stairs, lights and auto-leveling stabilizers to set up camp in seconds.
- Once unhooked from the hitch, the Pebble Flow is fully remote-controlled for easy parking and maneuvering.
As you’ve doubtless gathered by now, the Pebble Flow is not for the low-budget traveler. Prices start at $109,000 ($125,000 with the optional Magic Pack, which adds a dual-motor drivetrain and other goodies). It’s now open for pre-orders, and is expected to ship by the end of 2024.
“So many people will never embark on an RV trip simply because they are intimidated by how to do it. The combination of advanced modern EV features and the Pebble app makes RVing easier than ever, whether you’re a seasoned RVer or just starting out,” said Stefan Solyom, Pebble’s CTO.
