  1. Section 179 Tax write off for heavy trucks

    Yes. The rules apply equally to the R1S. There are lots of nuances to the rules, but one which I don't think was mentioned above is that you can get a partial deduction if the business use is less that 100%, but if the business use is below 50%, Section 179 deductions are not permitted. And...
  2. Rivian R1T OWNERS MANUAL Guide is here! 📒

    There are references to "Trailer Sway Control" (like it is a defined term) on page 144 and 145. But, I don't see anywhere where they describe what the vehicle actually does to control trailer sway (other than automatically disengaging Adaptive Cruise Control). Did I miss a description of what...
  3. New Video - Motortrend - R1T Suspension Explainer

    "A magic carpet ride." Coming from a 2001 Tacoma, I'm looking forward to it.
  4. Official: RIVIAN MEMBERSHIP Announced [1 year free trial beginning at day of delivery]

    I'm not sure how much I'd pay for it, but the ability to load gpx tracks would be nice. Even if you didn't get the SoC info (which I don't find surprising). It sounded like the Rivian engineers loaded the track as a one-off favor for the MotorTrend crew.
  5. Paint Care Protection Thread

    Thanks to everyone for this thread. I have been wondering what the state of the art is. I wax with Meguiars every six months, don't drive much, and park in the garage and, as has been noted, the wax is good for maybe two or three months.
  6. Section 179 Tax write off for heavy trucks

    Curb versus GVWR is easily confused. I have been thinking about weight for the purposes of state tax credits. Vehicle weight can also affect the available state credit in Colorado. A quick search and I ran across a picture of a Rivian (in Colorado?). zero-emission-vehicle-tax-credits
  7. Real Rivian Photos & Videos

    What is the yellow and red button in the center console? An ejection button?
  8. Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    On second review, i agree. I’m not sure why they did it that way.
  9. Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    At 2:15 on the video, it appears that the entire rear tailgate light brightens when you hit the brakes. I thought that I saw somewhere that someone thought just the corner pieces were going to light-up when you tap the brakes based on a test truck sighting. I'm glad that's not the case.
  10. What are you going to pull / tow with your R1T?

    I'm planning on pulling a Tab Outback.
  11. Colorado Checking In

    Hi everyone! Another Tom here in Boulder - waiting on a R1T with the large battery pack. I'm planning on guilt-free mountain bike trips and pulling our @TAB trailer. I'm new to BEVs and it feels like a steep learning curve, but I'm learning by lurking. Also, I've never spent anything close...
  12. Rivian Configurator is Up For Reservation Holders! Share Your Build / Configuration Inside

    135kW or 180kW? I think you were planning on a R1S so I'm guessing you must have gone 135. I'd be curious to understand how you think that will work for towing a travel trailer - given you have done this before with a BEV.
  13. Find your Rivian Order Number & Post it Here!

    I finally pulled the trigger and placed my pre-order for a R1T. Hopefully, there will be some left by the time I get up to the front of the line! :)
  14. Camping With Your Rivian: Leveraging Forum Wisdom

    I have started working through the thread (and other similar threads) on the Tesla Motors Club forum. There is a wealth of knowledge there for anyone considering towing a travel trailer with an electric vehicle (much of the knowledge provided by @ohmman). Thanks so much for the tip.
  15. Camping With Your Rivian: Leveraging Forum Wisdom

    Ohmman, great post. Thank you. I've seen other articles on this topic (and perhaps you have posted this info already somewhere), but I'm curious to hear what your range is on your Model X with and without the trailer. I have a Tab camper that's probably half the size and weight as your...
