    Totally agree, however I don’t think any of us is going to be comfortable with a color choice after seeing all the variations until we can see them in person. I haven’t seen any consistency in the media files that I could commit to.

    “When will we see launch green?” The answer is, when you remove the wrap. This was when the light went off. Awesome job!

    R1S flat towing behind an RV?

    Even if this were possible I’m struggling to understand how the Rivian would contribute to the acceleration and braking of a large motor home. Class A and Class Super C RVs can have a GVWR of up to 54,000 lbs, I would question the ability of a Rivian effectively assisting in either direction...

    R1S flat towing behind an RV?

    It depends on what type of motor home is pulling the towed vehicle. Class A diesel pushers have a towing capacity of at least 10,000 lbs with larger rigs capable of 15,000 lbs. Many Class C and Super C have the same 10,000 lb. rating with Super C diesel powered vehicles having up to 15,000...

    Is it normal to buy a car sight unseen (not driven)?

    I agree with kanundrum, however even though this is a startup, I feel confident the opportunity to see, feel and drive the vehicle will present itself, but you may have to be willing to go above and beyond the norm to do so. Rivian has always said it’s about the adventure. ;)

    New EV Charger ready and awaiting the R1T (Dino Electric)

    Brilliant! Siemens makes a retractor for their EV Charge post, it says it’s universal...a little less than half what you referenced at $1,000 but still expensive. Cat No. VCCMSSP

    More charging joy (via VW software)- Rivian, please get this right!

    Does anyone agree that It appears VW rushed the ID4 to market knowing a lot can be fixed OA? It also appears Rivian is putting a lot of effort in working out bugs before release to improve the customer experience...or have I drank too much Kool-Aid?

    Rivian plans to manufacture solid-state batteries

    Won’t trying to stay ahead of battery technology will be similar to always having the latest tech in TVs, computers, phones etc, you will go broke trying to do so...albeit, less broke than an $80k vehicle?

    Video: Real life look at R1S vs Ram 1500, GMC Terrain, Chevy Suburban [@ downtown Bloomington]

    I noticed in the frames where the driver is waving to the cameraman the tire sits almost inside the wheel well but later as the vehicle is moving there’s a much larger gap. Is this a function of the air suspension or just my imagination once again?

    R1S flat towing behind an RV?

    I share your frustration, I too saw the posts saying Rivian could be flat towed. I hope Rivian monitors these forums and finds a way to set the record straight.
