This Blade was spotted driving around Tasmania with a homemade caravan behind, built on a DIY lightweight frame with polycarbonate sheets from Bunnings.

That's a pretty trendy caravan, sort of retro futuristic

Looks familiar - they were part of the Devonport AEVA Conference, and Cradle Mountain Charge in November 2017 :)

I reckon the caravan must be pretty light weight ... I can feel it when I have four adults in the Blade ...

Yes, I think about 200kg.
That Blade has a new battery pack approx 36kW - range around town 250km / range on highway towing camper 120-140km.
