Going for the cheapest R1T I can honestly…money is an object
I was exactly where you are but 5 ½ years ago when I ordered my first EV (Model S).

Now I'm like, "Yolo, bitches!" 😊

I can understand that, I just really want a couple of features and plan to keep the car a long time. My last car was in my garage for 11yrs

Just put in mine for an Explore. The only thing I wish I could get from the Adventure was the ventilated seats. They are nice, but not worth the premium to me. I also like the wood, but it's not something I need. The power tonneau was actually a mark against the Adventure for me, I prefer the manual (previous Avalanche owner, so I am used to removing panels, and at least these can be stored more easily).

Adventure. Dark headliner and ventilated seats were important. The audio system was a factor too since I don't know if the base system is all digital/bus-based, or if it's easy to upgrade. I'll likely still want deeper bass than the Meridian can provide, but we'll see.

Seeing how they've already delivered vehicles to customers and they still won't let anyone try the powered tonneau because it's always broken/acting up/prone to breaking/etc. I almost wish opting out of the powered tonneau was an option!

First time in hearing of this issue. Mind providing a source?

If you watch any of the first drive reviews, they were asked not to use them. Also at the First Mile events they were deactivated. I'm sure they will get them working before they ship too many, probably a software thing, just something I don't need. I worry about it if things freeze. You would have problems with the manual cover too, but trying to open it "most likely" wouldn't cause any damage.

That's sad to hear. Hopefully they'll be able to work it out soon.

I have worked on a few components for Rivian. If they put the same attention to detail into all of them (and from what I have seen they seem to), I have more faith in them making it work than most (maybe any) other automakers. That is why I have placed my pre-order.

I have a Launch Edition configured. May or may not stick with it, depending on the results of seeing/touching/driving at an eventual First Mile event near me.

Adventure Trim desirable features:
  • It's what the LE comes with
  • Gear Guard
  • Wood trim
Adventure Trim likely desirable features:
  • Passenger Lumbar
  • Ventilated seats
Adventure Trim neutral/whatever features:
  • Upgraded stereo
  • Compass Yellow interior accents
  • Microfiber headliner
  • Chilewich floor mats
Adventure Trim somewhat negative to negative features:
  • The perforations required for the ventilated seats
  • Powered tonneau
This is of course reflects my personal preferences. I certainly don't feel entitled enough to expect Rivian to change things to exactly what I want :punch:. Instead, my wife will decide if the added cost of the LE/Adventure is worth it 🤐.

The LE possible pros:
  • LG paint
  • Free wheel upgrade
  • Faster delivery
Not sure of the actual value (to us) of any of these until we see more.

Preach on, brother. My first EV was a Model S and of course required the wife's approval. I prepared a presentation with a spreadsheet and shit. 😆
