The electric-vehicle revolution is coming fast, and it’s not just automakers feeling the pressure to pivot to a new type of transportation. With EV sales growing in the U.S., accessory companies are also adjusting their strategies at a speedy clip, retooling all manner of products—from cargo carriers to charging stations—to address the specific needs of EVs.
For camper and trailer brands, one challenge lies in evolving goods to better suit vehicles with relatively limited travel ranges compared to gas-powered cars and trucks. That’s the problem the trailer company Colorado Teardrops is trying to address with its newly announced Boulder model, which acts as a portable charging station for electric vehicles. The product is currently in the prototype phase, but already it’s creating a fair amount of buzz.
