I would reconsider ruling out road trips, you can always combine a stop to charge with getting a meal or shopping, it doesn't have to be a total inconvenience every time, although I do get what you are saying.
Most of my road trips are to Vegas. When there's no traffic, it's typically a 9-10 hour drive (coming back usually a little longer because I might actually stop to eat or part of the drive is after dark and my cruising speed is lower) when there's little to no traffic. And I just want to get there (or get back), so I bring food and drink with me, finger food, and eat along the way. on abetterrouteplanner.com, where I had my maximum speed set for 75 (a bit lower than my typical cruising speed) and my reserve set to 15% (10% makes me nervous), it had me making 5 DCFC stops, turning a 9:19 estimate into 14:48. And that's assuming the DCFCs were (a) available and (b) working when I arrived at each one.
