If Star Trek had a camping trailer, it would probably look a lot like this.

But there’s more than just Space Age aesthetics to the all-electric travel trailer announced last week by startup Pebble. The company aims to remove many of the “hassles” from the RV experience. Those include “insufficient energy storage, outdated tech and designs, poor towing experience, high fuel costs, and constant maintenance and safety issues,” company founder Bingrui Yang wrote on Medium.

The Flow claims to address these problems through several key features, like a motorized self-propulsion system for assisting the tow vehicle. It’s also got automated parking and hitching. Auto-leveling stabilizers and other features can be activated at the push of a button, making it ready for camping or moving in seconds, according to a press release.

“We know that for so many people, RVing is no longer just a vacation. It’s a lifestyle,” Yang wrote. “We’re here to make that lifestyle more accessible.”

Pebble Flow: Features

Designers of the Flow claim to have added features that eliminate the most stressful parts of RV travel.

That starts with the trailer’s Active Propulsion Assist System. Powered by a dual motor, the system supplies “just the right amount” of power to the towing vehicle. This removes the “range anxiety” common to towing with an electric vehicle, the company claimed.

And for those who hate trying to park a trailer, Pebble says, “Never back up again.” That’s possible because the Flow can be moved independently with a remote control. Hitching and unhitching can be accomplished automatically with the push of a button. The same goes for the awning, stairs, lights, and stabilizers once the trailer is parked in the sweet spot. It’s all available from the Pebble app.

The vehicle is also completely electric, with a 45kWh battery, universal charging options, and 1 kW of integrated solar power. Like many recent EVs, it can also be used as an emergency power source.

However, the trailer is neither small nor light. The Flow is 25 feet long, 7.5 feet wide, 8.67 feet tall, and weighs 6,200 pounds — so you’ll need a vehicle capable of towing it.

Interior features will be familiar, like two beds that can accommodate four people and a kitchen with a cooktop, microwave, and fridge. It’s also “plug-and-play ready” for Starlink, which allows for internet even on the move.

The most interesting design feature might be the wraparound windows, however, which allow for a 270-degree view of the surroundings.

Pebble Flow: Pricing & Availability

If you want the “magic features,” which include remote-controlled parking, automatic hitch, and tow assist, then the Pebble Flow will set you back $125,000. If you don’t want those features, the base model starts at $109,000.

Already interested in this sleek trailer? You can preorder the Pebble Flow now, with first customer deliveries expected by the end of 2024.

But if you’d like to check it out in person first, just travel to Los Angeles this November. The trailer will debut at the LA Auto Show Nov. 17-26, 2023.
