Electric / Driverless

Just have to ask.
I've seen a couple stories on electric vehicles and driver-less vehicles this week.
Trying to imagine how that fits into the RV world.
When I head for the Skagit River to camp for a week, I fill my tank. There are no gas stations, power outlets and no cell coverage.
And, will a driver-less vehicle be able to back my trailer into my camp site?

I'm thinking that these technologies are aimed at people who don't like to drive and can't afford to drive. Our kids are moving into condos, downtown, walking distance to work and entertainment. They are increasingly opting not to drive at all.

Is CanAm working on a hitch for the Tesla?

The technologies are meant to allow for increased volumes and fewer accidents. Imagine an on ramp that is not being used as a curbside passing lane by the selfish who force the rest of those on the road to slow down.
