There’s plenty of volume in the frunk, just not enough height. Bummer. It would be a lot more convenient to have the fridge in the frunk and just use the bed for storage.What did the MotorTrend team have with them? Didn't they mention having 2 refrigerators on their TAT trip?
There's definitely enough volume in the frunk for a good size refrigerator and possibly even a dual unit. If there isn't one already on the market that will work, it is absolutely something Dometic needs to make!
Edit: Nevermind on the MotorTrend question. They had an ARB refrigerator in the bed. I guess they didn't have the tonneau closed then.
Edit2: Looks like the DID have the tonneau closed! Looks like an ARB Classic Series II fridge. Based on the specs, the 37QT is 16.9" tall, so it should fit under a closed tonneau. The ARB site lists a 17" height for the 63QT, so it might fit as well, depending on possible rounding by them and/or Rivian.
If someone is designing a fridge just for the R1, I would prefer they leave just enough space on the driver side for the charging cables and a similar space on the other side for other random smaller stuff, but otherwise, yeah, fill nearly the whole volume!I’m holding out for an R1 frunk specific fridge/freezer combo that uses the whole space. Someone’s gotta do one
There would have to be space at the sides for lifting handles anyhow. Simple enough to keep in mind the necessity of storing the charger etc.If someone is designing a fridge just for the R1, I would prefer they leave just enough space on the driver side for the charging cables and a similar space on the other side for other random smaller stuff, but otherwise, yeah, fill nearly the whole volume!
I received the following back.I'm still waiting for an email back from CS with the floor dimensions but will share them when I do.
We should ask CS to go out and measure it or, better yet, see if we can get someone going to the NY First Drive event or Venice space to measure it. Someone must have a tape measure they can bring with them.I received the following back.
"Thank you for reaching back out. Unfortunately, I don't have the exact measurements of the front trunk at the bottom with the cargo shelf removed. You are correct though it does narrow a little with the shelf removed. I apologize I don't have those measurements to share. "
