    PORTABLE REFRIGERATORS for Rivians -- 12V or 110V??

    We should ask CS to go out and measure it or, better yet, see if we can get someone going to the NY First Drive event or Venice space to measure it. Someone must have a tape measure they can bring with them.

    Roof Top Tent - Should I?

    What do people think about getting a RTT that overhangs the back of the R1T, i.e., something longer than 54-60 inches? I'd like to get one that can (really) sleep 3 people, like the iKamper Skycamp 2.0, Roofnest Condor XL, or Tuff Stuff Alpha. I've seen other people have it with an overhang. Is...

    NY First Mile invitations going out

    A CS woman who is on the team to travel for First Drive events told me today that there is only 1 team at this point and they are not announcing future dates/locations for events yet (like a rock tour). They don't want to "disappoint" people if plans change. She did tell me that she was excited...

    Article: Rivian founder ran a 12-year marathon to build the first electric pickup [Autoblog]

    We do have some information. Rivian is not prioritizing deliveries of R1T and R1S this year. ( My guess is that once they deliver their 300 Amazon Prime vans by the EOY, R1Ts and R1Ss will move up in the priority queue.

    Fridge freezer options.

    Were you able to get measurements of the frunk, especially the lower part?

    Roof Top Tent - Should I?

    I don't think there is any way 1 person can do it. Definitely need 2.

    PORTABLE REFRIGERATORS for Rivians -- 12V or 110V??

    I do find it strange that Rivian didn't think through this issue and offer an electric cooler as part of their adventure gear at launch that fits the vehicle. What's a camp kitchen for without camp food to cook?

    PORTABLE REFRIGERATORS for Rivians -- 12V or 110V??

    I’ve been holding off on buying one until I can measure the frunk. Did anyone by chance bring a tape measure with them to Normal to get the dimensions of the lower part under the shelf? If that is too narrow/small for a dual zone Dometic or ARB, where will folks put their electric cooler? We...

    Rivian Camp Kitchen walkthrough by TechCrunch

    My wife said, "Of course you are buying the Camp Kitchen!" No argument from me there. :D However, I keep wondering why there is no electric cooler/refrigerator included with the Camp Kitchen. Not much of a kitchen without food. I've been looking at various brands of electric coolers (e.g...

    Test Drive Invitations are arriving! And First Mile events tab now available

    Did anyone at the event ask/find out about Alexa integration? I haven't heard much about it recently. Is this going to be an OTA update?

    Camp Kitchen dilemma

    It seems to me that you'd have to put it in the frunk. Most of the decently-sized, commercially available electric coolers I've looked at (Dometic, Arb, etc.) are too tall to fit in the bed with the tonneau closed (only 17" of height per Rivian). I don't think you'd want an expensive cooler in...

    Rivian receives all regulatory approvals and can now be sold & delivered in all 50 states: ITS HAPPENING!

    CNBC wrote, "A Rivian spokeswoman confirmed that the vehicles being produced are saleable. She declined to discuss the company's plans for ramping-up production, including how many trucks were produced Tuesday, and who will be the first customers to receive the vehicles."

    Answers & info from lunch w/ Rivian's Sr. Director of Customer Engagement Center

    Ha! Seriously, it would be good to know the exact dates ahead of time, especially for folks who may want to travel to one of those cities to get an earlier hands-on experience.

    Answers & info from lunch w/ Rivian's Sr. Director of Customer Engagement Center

    Good question! Rivian's website under Stories still says the following. "We're kicking off our drive program in August — we can’t wait for you to get behind the wheel to experience the performance and handling of driving a Rivian. The first cities we’ll visit include Los Angeles, San Francisco...

    Official Video: How Does it Feel to Drive a Rivian (Featuring Preorder Holders)

    Agreed! It seems like asking Alexa to change driving modes would be easier when whipping around turns than fiddling with the center screen.
