  1. Are these cars just too damn big?

    I’m from Texas so I’m worried it’s too small. :CWL:
  2. Go Fast Campers

    Yeah I tend to think if you want a camper just go with the one from Rivian, especially for 2/3 the price.
  3. Did you cancel your Lightning reservation?

    Agreed. Only reason I’m interested is because of the size, specifically interior cabin size for a family of 5. I actually prefer the smaller bed as I will primarily just use it for hauling kids crap and minor household repairs / yard work. As long as the Rivian is big enough for short trips...
  4. Another Solar Question

    If I wanted to put a solar panel over the bed, I’d there a way to connect the inverter to charge the battery without using the charge port? Basically curious if you could make that system work without having to manually plug / unplug every time you go for a drive.
  5. Rivian R1T vs F-150 Raptor vs Jeep Wrangler side-by-side

    How about a removable rear window similar to the C3 corvette? Or one that folds up like many SUVs (preferably power / automated)?
  6. Rants and Raves after 2 months of Rivian R1T ownership [DISCLAIMER: Unauthorized feedback from non-owner]

    The question is whether that is a “core” component or differentiator of their product. Every company outsources or licenses various portions of their business, specifically when they aren’t value add. There’s a reason every Fortune 500 company doesn’t have their own home grown OS for their IT...
  7. Rants and Raves after 2 months of Rivian R1T ownership [DISCLAIMER: Unauthorized feedback from non-owner]

    Why don’t more companies just use CarPlay and dump their own systems that are redundant? I’m not sure what exactly the licensing cost is but surely it’s cheaper than building your own. Even if it isn’t then make it an option and pass on the cost to the customers who want it?
  8. F-150 Lightning announced pricing pushing buyers to Rivian

    A lot of people will still buy it, especially since most alternatives will have a wait list. They will just be pissed off about it.
  9. 2022 F150 Lightning Pricing Revealed ⚡️

    There are rumors the extended range battery really gets closer to 400 miles in range. Anyone heard if the regular battery gets a similar boost? If the regular battery gets anywhere close to the Rivian large pack then a base Lariat is $10k less but without several features unique to the R1T.
  10. Ford F150 Lightning playbook - Retail orders start 1/6/2022

    I wonder how transparent they will be with delivery windows, like will lariats and platinums go first? What about standard vs extended range? If it’s a similar window, I think I will stick with my R1T.
  11. Hood Mounted Solar Panels?

    They specifically mention Rivian but I’d be interested in how they modify it. Would it still work with the existing automated tonneau system? Rather than adding extra batteries in the bed, would it just charge directly to the existing batteries? It’s a great idea, even if it’s just 5-10...
  12. Anyone buying the $500 Rivian Wall Charger?

    Same here. I’d be more interested in just an extra standard charger cord for the right price.
  13. Anyone still waiting on delivery window estimate?

    I haven’t gotten an email yet but just placed my order a few days ago so I assume that’s why.
  14. Captains Chairs in middle row?

    does anyone know if the middle seat in the second row could be removed? The DIY captain’s chairs.
