Tesla Cybertruck survivalist camper is the e-RV that makes water
Living Vehicle makes some of the most self-sustaining RVs on planet earth, so much so that it strived to carve out a new category - the LV, a fully equipped cabin in the woods that's ready to tow from private to public land and back again. Now the company turns its attention to Tesla's headline-making Cybertruck. The LV CyberTrailer looks as ...uh, unique ... as the truck it rolls behind and works with the Tesla to create an all-electric off-grid escape combo that can develop its own energy and potable water indefinitely.

Majestic drone vs plane video makes us wish we could fly
The footage is part of a 9-minute short film called 26,000 Days - as in, the number of days in our average life span - directed by Henry Behel. The message is poignant, even if you've heard it before: Do something. Live while you can.

Robotic RV solar panel auto-tracks the sun to double base camp power
RVers have two main options for solar charging: vehicle rooftop panels that are hassle-free but rarely in optimal position, and deployable ground systems that can be more precisely positioned throughout the day but demand more attention and manual work. California startup Roboteos has a third idea in mind, launching a rooftop solar charging system that automatically deploys and tracks the sun throughout the day. Called the Heliotrope 1.0, it's designed to pull in every last photon, giving van lifers the most charge without requiring they move a muscle.
