    Interior Details!

    Rivian has shown plenty of shots of the UI (both live in videos and various static comps on their site), they just haven't done an end to end walkthrough. This is more than Tesla ever showed of the S/X refresh UI before their first deliveries this week.

    Interior Details!

    To be clear, I'm well aware of software development practices... that's my industry and I've shipped many a day zero patch in my career 😊 My point is that some basic UI conventions and featureset may be in enough flux that they don't want to film the walkthrough yet until it's a little more...

    Interior Details!

    Honestly, this makes sense to me. If there's anything they can still be iterating on at this point, it's UI. Would love a walkthrough but given that we already know the basic parameters of capabilities, I don't mind waiting.

    What will we learn 6/7 - 6/13?

    This week we learned that we'll learn something next week! You know what, I'll take it.

    Interior Details!

    ... are coming next week: We're now at the "This week's info dump is that next week we'll have an info dump" stage of things, but honestly, at least we know they're alive over there. I wonder if software is coming in a little hotter than expected? Seems like the only part that I wouldn't...

    Amazon Officially Starts Deliveries With Rivian Vans

    Sorry, I worded my post poorly. I am specifically referring to the 10,000 vans which the video claims will be delivering packages by (presumably the end of) 2022. Some of those vans will beat some of our R1T/R1S vehicles to market. (As a nitpick - while the vans are probably still more or less...

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    I joined the Rivian subreddit long before joining this forum. I have no trouble believing that there are several non-overlapping Guide contacts. No need for conspiracy theories.

    Amazon Officially Starts Deliveries With Rivian Vans

    For anyone who is upset that these beat R1Ts to market... bear in mind that the 10,000 delivery vans are what is ramping up Rivian's production, subsidizing infrastructure, and hopefully getting the kinks out of your R1T. And should help guarantee stability for the company even while they work...

    Loki slide-in EV Camper for Rivian R1T

    Haven't seen anyone mention this here yet - I just stumbled upon the Loki Basecamp, which is a slick looking slide-in camper and they plan to make a R1T-specific model: LOKI Basecamp - Rivian Edition | Loki Basecamp Most slide-ins seem to need at minimum a 5' bed, so this could be interesting...

    Snow Peak Kitchen Set Price Value

    I read this as "We got a deal on a shitload of about-to-be-discontinued Dometic induction cooktops at wholesale and are building them into our Camp Kitchens. We'll figure out Camp Kitchen 2 when we run out."

    Potential Change to $7,500 EV Tax Credit

    I'm all for the government helping EV adoption. But folks who are contributing pushing the price of an already-premium vehicle into the stratosphere with options and upgrade trim are not the right focus for helping EV adoption - most people who can afford an 85k Rivian with a 10k rebate could...

    Potential Change to $7,500 EV Tax Credit

    In this thread: People try to formulate a public policy defense for discounting the price of their luxury baubles.

    Potential Change to $7,500 EV Tax Credit

    If you're shopping for a >$80k adventure truck you don't get to put scare quotes around "rich."

    ROOFTOP TENTS--What are your experiences with this type of tent?

    Thanks for the heads up! Didn't realize they had a showroom (didn't even think to look!). I'll have to try it out - looks like REI carries them now, so saving 20% at the member sale would be a nice win too.

    Do I really need the Max Pack?

    If anything I'd expect the R1T to see more range loss at 75 mph than most competition; trucks are not particularly aerodynamic and drag starts to dramatically increase over 60mph. For my part, I'm willing to slow to 65 to get an extra 30% range if I need it. It's easy enough to tuck in behind a...

    What will we learn 6/7 - 6/13?

    Wish fulfillment aside, there's nowhere near enough information outstanding to justify a big snazzy media presentation. Those are for "unveils." At this stage the next big milestone will be media placements, influencer outreach, etc. when prodution is healthy and the review tour starts. I'd...

    ROOFTOP TENTS--What are your experiences with this type of tent?

    FWIW there are lots of reasonably affordable options for garage hoists for things like RTTs, kayaks, and rooftop boxes that should make this a manageable one-person job. I'm on the fence with the ikamper versus the Yakima tent... much prefer the ease and the hardshell style of the ikamper but...

    Do you think new guide emails will go out today on another waive of LE holders?

    To be fair this would be a pretty quiet place without pointless threads
