I will post some next week or the week after Stevie (y)
Farad bars, Thule M box, travall dog car and divider. Intending to use the boot's underfloor to the max. And have you seen the size of the storage bins in the rear wheel arches? Plan is to stuff a lot of odds bits in those too.

Here's a terrible couple of shots of the space to the boot door at the back of the box.

The farad system clamps onto the top of the interior door frame. Metal on metal. No peeling back rubbers or anything. Dead easy.

Here's an inflatable 3 man rowing boat (Intex Seahawk 3 fyi) oars, spare paddle, life jackets, shoes, pump. All stuffed under the floor.

Here's a shot of the boot, with the travall guards in place. Absolutely stuffed: pram and all the baby+toddler paraphernalia. Storage bins in the wheel arches crammed with walking shoes, towels and coats.

Below is a shot of the etron charging at 50kW on one of Gridserve's new Electric Highway chargers. The unit says 120kW CCS but only delivered 50kW with only us charging during our stay. When dual charging arrives, via a software update, that could mean sharing/splitting the 50kW with someone else. We arrived with less than 10% and needed virtually another 90% to get to our next target stop. Doing that with 25kW just isn't going to happen and would force us to make unwanted stops elsewhere. Hopefully Gridserve will update things like power supplies and parking space arrangements in future.

Our etron 50 transported 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs, a full boot and full roof box at an efficiency of 2.3m/kWh at an average speed of 50mph in 12-15°c temperatures. We aimed for speed limit plus 2 or 3mph but we had some traffic here and there.

The longest we travelled in one go was 120 miles in 2 hours. if we were to drive only on the motorways we would have had a 2.1-2.2.2m/kWh average, but North England's A66 and some Scottish A roads helped us to build up some extra electrons with regen.

Overall it was superb 300 mile trip in comfort. The GOM was dialled in within 10minutes of travel, letting us know how many miles were left. The box and bars were pretty quiet (we did have a whistle today, quiet though). The charge network did us a solid too. However, even though we charged twice and in both cases we had kids to feed and dogs to relieve, the chargers we used were 50kW only. For people not wanting/needing to stop for long this is not a great charge speed. There needs to be more 100kW+ chargers in my opinion. Thankfully it wasn't an issue for us.

The etron's just snoozing now, snoring in some electrons at a steady 2kW from our accommodation's domestic plug socket 'cos chargers are few and far between north of Glasgow!
