Can an Electric Truck Carry a Camper?

Electric Trucks are becoming increasingly popular as more people look to reduce their carbon footprint. With increasing range options and more access to charging stations, electric trucks can be a great way to reduce your environmental impact while still having the capability and power of a traditional truck. This begs the question, can an electric truck carry a camper?

The short answer is yes, electric trucks can carry a camper. However, there are some things to consider before making this purchase. First, the weight of the camper must be taken into account when looking at available electric truck models.

Different models have different weight limits, so it is important to find one that will accommodate the weight of your camper. Additionally, you should also make sure that your chosen model has enough range to get where you want to go without needing frequent charging stops.

Beyond these considerations, it is important to note that electric trucks may require additional modifications for them to be able tow campers safely and efficiently. Most electric truck models come with a Class 3 hitch receiver as standard equipment. This means they should be able to tow campers up to 5,000 lbs in total weight capacity – but it is important to check with both the vehicle and camper manufacturers in order to ensure compatibility.


In conclusion, electric trucks are capable of carrying campers but it’s important for consumers to ensure that their chosen model has enough capacity for the weight of their camper as well as enough range for their needs. Additionally, any modifications required must also be taken into account before making the purchase.
