    Pelican/Roam type Rugged Case Organizers

    What are you using to organize your camping/overlanding gear in your rugged cases? ...not talking about lid organizers (which are abundant from manufacturers) but larger rugged cases that are 80+L in size. Does your gear just get piled into the case, or have you found an organization solution?

    Ocean Coast Interior: Cleaning soiled / dirty alcantara headliner

    I was frustrated when my R1T was returned from Service Center with a soiled head liner adjacent to driver window: Careless mechanic aside, this was my fear about the lighter colored headliner after several months of usage. I had some Folex carpet cleaner in the cabinet so used some of it on...

    Manual winch for R1T?

    Has anyone found a manual winch beefy enough for recovery usage for the R1T but nimble enough to be portable...at a reasonable cost? I assume it would need to be 5 ton to 6 ton pulling capacity. I've seen some in the $3500+ price range which seems high for a manual winch. Anyone found any...

    New Gear Test: iKamper RTT, Yakima Slim Shady, Yakima Skinny Warrior

    I’ve been acquiring some new gear over the last couple of months and finally got the opportunity for an outing last week. Basic setup is an iKamper Skycamp mini 3.0 mounted on the bed rails. I added the iKamper awning to this setup…was skeptical that the R1T bed mount would be high enough to...

    Rivian Service Centers: Master List of Locations?

    Has anyone developed a current list of Rivian Service Center locations? I haven't seen one... just learned from Service Advisor that a Memphis Service Center recently opened. This list would be helpful if one travels - or in my case, I'm about equidistant from three Service Centers and I'm...

    I recently did a garage test of the impact of plugging a new Dometic CFX3 35 cooler into the 120V auxiliary outlet in bed of R1T. I started with a pre-cooled temperature setting in the CFX3 of 36F. Outside temperatures ranged from low 50s to low 70s during test period. No direct sun as truck...

    Electric Coolers - worth the cost?

    For the car campers, is the electric cooler a “must have” or just a luxury item? Are you using an external battery apart from your R1? If not, are you using 12V or 120V Rivian supply? My outings are typically 2-3 nights at a time. I’m rarely space limited because it’s just me. My coolers...

    RV Park as a Charging Station Option?

    In many of our rural areas there are huge gaps in public L2/L3 chargers, but there are plethora of RV Parks - most all of which have 50amp electrical connections. Does anyone have experience approaching RV Park manager(s) about allowing EV to plug in for a charging session? Do they charge a...

    First EV drive: 500 mile trip home - first impressions

    First time EV owner here. Took delivery of R1T at factory and my first drive was a 500 mile trip home from Normal. I’ve read about every post on this forum over the last 18 months and watched countless R1T YouTube videos, so I was familiar with the R1T but had never driven EV other than 20 min...

    Charging Extension Cables?

    I see Lectron makes a 20‘ and 40’ extension cable. What are thoughts about need to carry one of these in vehicle? I can imagine configuration of charging station or getting ICEd might make this a handy workaround. Are they safe? Thanks for any input.
