Yeah, that's what I thought as well.
What I'm interested to know is if there will be electrical connections and some sort of attachment system (bolt holes?) available for the gear tunnel so that I can fabricate my own camp kitchen. Maybe I'll sell them for $4000 :)
I would be shocked if the crossbars (and spare tire) are NOT extra $$. I mean the kitchen is $5k for heaven's sake! Up-sell for alternate wheels are steep as well. Rivian certainly knows about the art of the up-sale.
So I think the order numbers changed a few months ago when Rivian noticed the number in the URL. I placed a pre-order just before that day, and another a month or so later. When I heard I could look up my pre-order, the number was not there (post change). Today, if I do this trick, one of my...
Did anyone else have two pre-orders and only get one email? I pre-ordered using the same email each time, but as of now they have only sent one config invite. Wouldn't be that big of a deal since I'm not planning on buying two, but the missing invite is an EARLIER pre-order!
That's what I did. I'm also supposed to have a 2nd pre-order to config but haven't received the email yet! I was thinking to configure one of each (LE and 180) and see what happens, although I only plan on buying one of them.
In an attempt to answer my question about wheel size pro/cons, I found this thread on a separate blog for ICE trucks, but I think it applies: https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/233492-20-inch-wheels-vs-22-in-wheels/
Basically, the consensus seems to be that 20 in wheels are better than 22s...
But I don't think we'll have the option to "lock in" until much later. So, I'm still guessing there will be no date estimates. I hope I'm wrong.
But, if there are, then we can re-configure to see the estimated dates for each various configuration. That would be sweet.
Admittedly, I'm just saying that on a gut instinct. I don't have any specific info either way. I just think that they will notify pre-orders much later about estimated delivery date. Particularly for those of us who configure something not yet available (e.g. 180kWh).
I don't know mine (50k?). I pre-ordered two times - one just before they cut off the email trick to see your number, and one other just after. At the time I didn't know if I wanted an SUV or truck.
So, that's one reason I wanted to start this thread - to strategize around how I use the two...
