That's pretty pricey when your average 20ft trailer is going for around $20k USD (I'm sure they will claim it's all super high end)

Still need to be judicious with 7kwh battery pack and 2kwh daily generation.

Also, I looked on the company's site and couldn't find any info on heating?

Seems like if you are geared specifically to an all electric rig, they would clearly layout the electrical devices and generation info.

Amazing what can be done when it is part of the original design.
Our modified RV trailers pale in comparison.

I thought it was self propelled. mea culpa.

It uses a heat pump for cooling and heating. It includes a washer and drier.

Still would have been a bit pricey but at least it would have been something new to actually have one for sale.

Perhaps I missed it, but didn't see any mention of how they heat or cool it.

14.3 KWH of battery energy is just slightly under 50K BTU - Enough to run a 12K BTU air conditioner for around 4 hours a day (assuming perfect efficiency, 100% battery discharge, and no other electrical loads being used).

I assume they would use some sort of heat pump for heating, since resistance electric heat is very energy-inefficient.

Typically, you get less sunlight in cold climates and during cold seasons - so there would often be less solar panel output available for heating. On rainy or completely overcast days, you either make do with whatever's still in the battery, or do without.

Mentioned an under the bed AC unit and detailed about the insulation that helps keeps things cooler (or warmer).
