    Add an accessory lightweight trailer to accompany the existing tent. Two bikes can be attached (perhaps a small electric wheel pump), pullout grille, warmers & fridge, small storage space for clothes/laundry. Power from Aptera batteries with possible added solar space off trailer.

    P.S. You could design, spec them outsource it completely but as an OEM matching accessory (for those panicking that it’s only a distraction ie. the “where’s my Aptera” FIRST, folk). 😉

    Finally, and separately, think of how the hull Hydronic heating & cooling of batteries would work in an electric boat (small Aptera branded one) and the same idea of an in hub motor style propeller in that regard. Awesome.

    In cabin Heppa Air Filtration.

    BTW, with Hydronic heating & cooling (radiant) of the entire cabin within the composite you may not need windows that open either.

    Consider marine grade/yacht/high end flooring inside for both front and rear areas.

    Echo Auto- Hands-free Alexa – in your car with your phone. Simple standard include IMHO:

    Better yet if my projector idea below chosen. (Also has Alexa built in).

    Finally, assuming we can attach devices like Chromecast, Roku, Apple, Firestick or Android streaming devices to run off center screen when parked for camping.

    Does a 12v beverage cooler built in between (ie behind) the seat backs a good idea? I see there is a flap that is to come into place to fill void between deck and folded seat back. This cooler would fit between that (the two seats) and that helping to fill in that area (support) and void fully.

    Finally, would be cool & easy for small LED projector to be an option so as to be able to project video to white panel on tent with an option to reverse image view that would make visible from outside depending on location of black out panel. Basically duplicate front and rear facing projector. Not a difficult tech add on. Visualize doors open for outdoor theater and sound.

    Amazon is also working with car manufacturers to get Alexa onto the in-dash infotainment systems of more brands. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-09-24/amazon-working-on-large-wall-echo-sound-bar-and-new-auto-device

    For the boat, check out the pod drives from Epropulsion. And the outboards. I have the 1KW electric outboard on my sailboat and it’s fantastic. It comes with a built-in 1.2KWH battery so it will run at full throttle for an hour and 20 minutes. And it’s incredibly reliable. The modern gas motors I used to use had to be rebuilt every year or three to keep running. And it’s nearly silent. Feels like you’re adrift but you’re not.

    Torqeedo has bigger units up to 150 hp. Then Candela has even bigger drive pods.

    Oh look! They already make tiny camper trailers! They’re built for big motorcycles. Should be perfect.
