Why so many sleeping in the back of the car? Late night at the bar or wife kick you out?

My son sleeps in his R1S when camping with his rock climbing friends. The R1S is much quieter inside compared to a tent and climate controlled, so he sleeps better.

I'd take a set as well!
While I don't need it for leveling the floor, I feel like it would be helpful to help ventilate the fridge I have in the spare tire space, so completely unrelated to what you intended it for lol.
Do you mind sharing the details on this fridge? Does it run all the time? I'm looking for a permanently on fridge option for my R1S

I have the fridge/freezer from this thread: https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/...alled-in-r1s-spare-wheel-storage-space.18957/
Fits perfect and does what I need, but typical usage is only for a few hours at a time. I have had it run for a few days when camping, but no need to have it as an always on for my needs.
It gets to temp very quickly so if I'm running into the store last minute to get ice cream I turn it on right before I go in and it is probably at 15 degrees by the time I come back out and it drops the rest of the way quickly.
I use the outlets by turning them on in the camp mode settings.
My gut would say you'd want a higher quality brand with a good warranty if you plan to have it run all the time, but I don't have anything to support that or reason to believe this won't last me a good number of years.
Hope that helps!

Thank you for that information! I posted a reply to that thread with some questions. I've been looking for an always-on cooler option for a while.

Quick update on my end - I've been working on the batch production version, and the first prototype is hot off the printer. My updates are likely going to consist of:
  1. Enable attachment via standard fasteners. The model as posted uses a friction fit pin.
  2. Tweaking the interface between the two corner parts to be a 1x2 setup instead of a 2x2 setup. This is done to make production easier (eliminates all off-plate supports) an allows for some clamping force with the fasteners. The goal is for this to stick open or closed and not flop.
First, I want to note that the model is excellent. Seriously, it's simple bit but extremely consistent. The angles are right, the filleting is quite well done. The curves allow for easy collapsing. It's also really substantial. Printed in ASA with appropriate wall count and infill, this thing should be tremendously durable.

As it stands, I'm dialing in the fastener bits. Both the geometry and finalizing exactly what hardware will be used. I'm thinking an M6 bolt is the optimal choice here, despite it being overkill. We're looking at a 55mm long bolt and it's also more available, even at a Lowes or Home Depot.

A few pictures. Please diregard the finish on top as it's a prototype only:

This is EXCELLENT! Thank you to both OP (@Kelvn ) and @RWerksman for all of your efforts in developing this and bringing it to market for the rest of us! Can't wait to get my hands on a set when ready!

+1 on buying a set. My two dogs will be real happy. Can't wait to try these out.

Quick update:

I think I have these dialed in correctly at this point. I have final hardware on the way in - it's expected to arrive today. I was able to finalize what I want to do for infill and the top finish as well. (picture below - set on the right) Kevin and I just exchanged some messages regarding orientation, and I'm debating on baking in some text to assist with installing it correctly. (think REAR → in the mold)

So, now I'm a bit torn. I've not been able to arrange an R1S to test these with yet. Do I do a small, expedited beta for these, or so I say screw it and let it fly? (with a caveat)

Pricing for these should be just over $30 or so. That's mainly due to the size and printer time for each set. Print time for each set is north of 7 hours. (and defect rate / warranty claims)

$30 or so plus shipping is quite reasonable. I have an R1S but am about 3.5 hours east of you, with no plans to head to Pittsburgh any time soon. Sorry! If I thought it would help, I'd pay for overnight shipping and could FaceTime you to show you how it fits...
