I tried out the Rivian online chat yesterday and found it very responsive. Martin shared that the configurator will be available "VERY soon", but would not say whether that means in days, weeks, or months. With the configurator, once all options are chosen, an estimated delivery time will be shown. With my 12/11/2018 preorder date, I am hoping for a very early delivery.

So far, from the online chat, we’ve established that:

A) The configurator will be out “well before” December 31

B) It might be out before Thanksgiving, but it’ll definitely be out before the end of the year

C) It’ll be out “Very soon”

Now if you can logic-puzzle out a release date from the above info, congratulations! You’ve officially passed the L-SAT

Martin did say I would have to complete all of the configurator options to determine an estimated delivery date. It will probably become more clear VERY soon. ;)

I was told today that we should expect an email 'very very soon' that will let us know when the configurator is coming.

I was not able to get them to define very very soon, unfortunately. My guess is an email coming the week before thanksgiving, and configurator launching last week of December. Based on nothing but my gut instinct.

There were a few posts on Reddit where one of the guys got an answer that Rivian is trying to get the configurator out by the end on November. Nothing is for sure yet though.

If it is a bit earlier than the end of November, it will be a fund thing to do on T-Day!

Freudian slip? Fund-hemorrhaging thing to do on T-Day! :CWL:
Yep, left hand right hand and the kind of typo auto-correct just isn't able to detect just yet!

I got an email today answering some questions, well, one out of two. But the email said configurator "later this year". It did not say very soon or very very soon.

I was told I will have to wait for the configurator to see if the removable roof will fit in the frunk. But on a more positive note I was told that the camp kitchen will be easily removed from the gear tunnel by a single person. That means I can store it in my garage when not in use.

You must have the R1T on order. I ordered our SUV December 18, 2018, so am hoping for a late summer 2021 delivery date. I'm anxiously awaiting the configurator to get a better estimate.

That is quoted in the FAQs on the site now

Sounds like he asked those questions through their customer service, so they got back at him.
You can go here:

There is a chat, email and call option.

I also chatted with Martin today.

He gave me the same line about "expect an email re: the configurator very very soon"

He also said "RJ is in Illinois overseeing finishing touches on the configurator"

He also said I might be able to "Give Thanks" when the configurator hits. wink wink nudge nudge

Did he say “or you can learn to say “gobble gobble”?” :CWL::CWL:

That seems specific in a sneaky way. I'm crossing my fingers it's before the 26th.... although in Canada we've already had our Thanksgiving......
