    Wrapped…a bit of a learning curve! Edges of many panels are knife-edge sharp. Cuts through film…and flesh. Ouch.

    Re: Cybertruck…

    I waited to see one in person before I passed judgment. A few months ago, I saw a vehicle transporter full of them on the Interstate, and shortly afterwards I actually saw one being driven on the road. My verdict: It looks like a dumpster on wheels. Funny enough, both of my daughters have seen them recently totally separate from each other, and totally separate and before I did. Their unanimous reaction? It looks like a dumpster on wheels.

    I`m not apposed to electric vehicles, and while I don`t like the interior design choices of Tesla`s, I have a certain level of respect for the product they sell. That said, the Cybertruck gets big thumbs down. If I was in the market for an electric truck it would be either a Rivian RT1 or an F150 Lightning.

    The F150 made it a whopping 85 miles on a full charge towing a 6000# trailer according to Fast Lane trucks.

    That`s clearly not the best application for an electric vehicle at this time.

    I`m not surprised. Depending on the weather conditions (i.e. extreme cold) it could be even worse.

    Exactly, and I think most people would freely admit it too. I`d bet if you could get some Ford people off the record they would even admit the person pulling a 6K lbs trailer long distances (or any distance really) is not the target customer. I think the are going after people who use their truck as a car, those who pull small/light recreational trailers (light boats, jet ski`s, maybe a motorcycle/ATV) short distances, or maybe even a tradesman of some sort who simply use the trucks to haul their tools around the local area. The use cases for the RT1 is likely the same. I know our electric company has a couple Rivian RT1`s running around these days. The technology and infrastructure aren`t mature enough for anything heavier.
