Outfitted as rolling Tesla design studios, the fleet—staffed with Tesla product specialists—will serve as an opportunity for customers to observe the Model X 5,000-pound towing capability when hitched to an Airstream trailer.

When Tesla’s crossover SUV was launched last year, it pulled an Airstream onto the stage for its reveal. The Airstreams that will hit the road with the Model X have been made as light as possible, and employ design features never before attempted by Airstream, Inc. in the USA.
