I recommend if you’re looking at a used Tesla to verify that it has Autopilot and ideally Autopilot hardware 3.0 as well which is the current (latest) version as of this writing. It has the ability to make your roadtrips far more enjoyable and bring ease to the long driving sessions.

Third-party and Niche Adaptors

The Ultimate Road Trip Kit for Tesla Model 3 and Model Y 3

(50 AMP) SS2-50P/CS6365 (50A Locking) to S/3/X/Y Gen 2 (UMC)
EVSEadapters evseadapters.com

This adapter is really promising for a few different reasons. First, you no longer need need to connect a SS2-50P to 14-50 to your Gen 2 Mobile. I only really see recommending that option now if you have an older (pre-Gen 2 UMC) or you have other use cases for using the adapters independently. Second, you have the advantage of plug temperature which communicates with the car to automatically set the appropriate 32 amp charging current. No need to manually set the current. Plug and play! πŸ™‚

The Ultimate Road Trip Kit for Tesla Model 3 and Model Y 4

(50 AMP) NEMA 10-50 Adapter for Tesla Model S/3/X/Y Gen 2 (UMC)

(50 AMP) NEMA 10-50P to NEMA 14-50R Adapter
Conntek amazon.com

This adaptor connects a NEMA 10-50 outlet to your Tesla NEMA 14-50 adaptor.
With this adapter you will be required to set the Tesla to lower amperage PRIOR to attaching cable and charging, but keep in mind I am not an electrician!

(50 AMP) SS2-50P/CS6365 (50A Locking) to 14-50R Adapter
