it is odd, I do see some people posting getting 1.7 driving, and it’s crazy to me, but I’ve also seen people post 2.3 and 2.4. Efficiency is weird. I guess this thing is a brick on wheels so it’s already not very aerodynamic , hard to make it worse!
I have a service center appointment next month gonna ask them because I drove a loaner truck this month on 20’s and got 2.4. So it’s… weird.

Great photos! Great setup! Are you able to mount Skycamp directly on the bed rack, or does it need supplemental hardware?
I actually removed the weird clamps ikamper uses and put large t bolts in. There's a few options you can go with, and I think Sam is working on a better solution currently, but my t bolts work perfectly for me.

Here is the 1,000 mile efficiency update. It isn't too bad, it's actually about right where I was getting with the tent by itself on my bed. So I'm confident in saying the bed rack alone is a very minimal range hit compared to the tent

Thank you for the update. Just to be clear, what is the compare? Prior tent on the crossbars in the bed vs ruff rack with the tent on? Or is it the tent on the crossbars in the bed vs. ruff rack with no tent?

Thank you! I ordered the racks and spoke to Sam today about some risers. He is very helpful and clearly puts his customers first. So far I can recommend.

Hes a good guy!

The only data I have is:

Tent + OEM crossbars: 1.83
Tent + ORR bed rack: 1.8
Tent + ORR bed/roof rack: 1.87 (current average at 700 miles so far)

I don't have any data without the tent, etc

Average speed of 35mph, though.

Yeah pretty low but also my efficiency is actually worse around town than when I go on trips, strangely. Would love to see a single trip efficiency at like 70mph

How is the wind noise on the roof rack compared to the rivian crossbars?

I didn’t forget about you. Here’s some pics. It fits. But I have to load the bike with the tailgate down, and kinda lift it up as I close the tailgate. Easy with one bike, might get more complicated with more than two

Do you know if the third brake light is visible? The main two brake lights are so tiny and with the bikes hanging off the back I’m sure it’s worse. Is there an option to have a third brake light on the rack itself?

2022 Rivian R1T
Here’s the first customer delivery of Overland Ruff Rax bed rack system for the R1T (not affiliated with them at all)

I go into more detail on the Reddit page , but a quick rundown.

I previously ran the tent on the bed with rivian racks. I had about an average of 1.8ish efficiency, now (small sample size) I am getting 1.99 efficiency. I have included pictures of efficient before and after the rack. I was very surprised by the efficiency boost, I believe it’s because now the spoiler directs the air below the tent, rather than directly at it. I will post a 1k mile update.

Also included pictures of visibility out the rear window before and after the rack. This was a huge perk for me.

This mounts to the factory receivers, no drilling required! Tonneau cover is still 100% usable.

I understand at first the price was a question for some people, they have since adjusted their prices but it is still a hard pill to swallow. From my personal experience with them, I believe it's worth the money, but everyone uses this truck in different ways, so for some people it might now be worth the money. Just to put this in perspective as of right now this is the only bed rack system you can buy right now, and one of the only ones who figured out how to use the special Rivian Receivers. Another commented on one of the forums was this "there may be a Rivian premium but the reality is the R1T is a much lower volume truck compared to the Tacoma and some of the other vehicles they make these for. I’m assuming they priced these so that the breakeven/profit point accounts for the lower number of expected units sold." which definitely makes a good point, we don't own a tacoma, we own a very low production and new to the market vehicle, it will take some time and competition until prices for accessories fall more in line with some vehicle you all may be used to.

Some of the main driving factors for this purchase for me personally, I wanted more bed access again, I wanted increased visibility, I want convenient mounting solutions for my adventures, and just simply love the looks of this!

If you have any questions, or picture requests, let me know and I’ll try my best to answer all of them! My goal is to answer as many questions as I can, supply as much information of the rack, take pictures, and provide an unbiased opinion! I will be doing my best to post updates along the life of them also

Does it block the rear camera in the spoiler?
