    NY to Vermont camping trip with Prinsu Rack + iKamper

    We ordered and installed a Prinsu Rack to use with our iKamper since taking the RTT on/off the OEM crossbars on our sloped driveway was nerve racking, to say the least. With a full roof rack, we don't have to worry about the tent slipping off the crossbars during mounting and slamming into the...

    Really sweet looking pairing, if I do say so myself (esp. with the 22s!).

    Eclipse + Superchargers + Rivian = Chaos

    On our way back from viewing the eclipse, we witnessed this scene: There were 7-8 Telsas in line to charge, with another nearby with its emergency blinkers on. 4 of the 8 Superchargers (Magic Docks) were down. Luckily for our Rivian and an F-150, the adjacent CCS chargers were open for use.

    Insurance + Data logging

    Upsetting report about how invasive insurance companies are with regard to driver data. I wonder if Rivian sells data on "acceleration events." GM obviously does.

    Cybertruck: Aero-covers that go over tires are a bad idea. Who knew?

    Apparently, Cybertruck aerocovers are gouging into the tires after a couple thousand miles.

    2,333 mi Winter Trip from New York to Georgia in R1S with an iKamper

    TLDR: Averaged 1.99 mi/kWh over 2,333 miles (round trip) averaging 47 mi/hr with temps from low 30s to high 60s; mostly on All-purpose, but did use conserve to stretch certain legs (although probably wasn't needed ultimately) Fast charging was smooth -- charged at (1) EVgo in Allentown, PA...

    Two weekends in the Adirondacks; +1 for Rivian Nav./Mapbox?

    We took back-to-back weekend trips to the Adirondacks. First weekend: We went to the Hudson Gorge Wilderness area, where we waded in a river by our campsite and paddled the nearby lake. Not counting the cost of food and home charging, the trip cost us a total of $6.05: we CCS charged for...

    Cooling and Heating a tent using Vehicle A/C?

    I've been following this product that just launched on Kickstarter. It uses hoses to connect the vehicle's A/C to a tent. How effective do y'all think it'll be? Might be limited to hookup sites? I got one of the early bird pledges, but might cancel.

    Shakedown Camping Trip with R1S and iKamper Skycamp 2.0/3.0 to the Adirondacks

    Got the chance to take out the R1S for a shakedown trip over the weekend. The goal was to see how much we can take along, even though we didn't use or need some of it. The R1S with the iKamper Skycamp 2.0 capably accommodated 2 adults, 2 young kids, and a dog. We had the following gear...

    Overland Journal Talks R1S

    Listened to this over the weekend and thought others here may enjoy. Overall, they were very complementary of the R1S and Rivian in general, with the exception of one of the host not liking one-pedal driving. Starts at 29:50:

    Sandy Munro Takes R1T Off-Roading + Load Test

    Sandy Munro takes the R1T to an off-road park. According to Sandy, the R1T outclassed the Jeeps that were there, although Cory says Sandy hasn't regularly off-roaded in 2 decades. Interesting that the R1T was on 21 aeros without the underbody armor.

    New Report Dropping the 28th

    In the most recent Transport Evolved News, Nikki said that she back from Colorado where she test drove a vehicle -- but it's under embargo for 10 days: Dollar to donuts that it's Rivian, especially since someone in another thread spotted her photographed with an R1T and a small group of...
