I'll call it a truck when the front end is robust enough for a snow plow.
$10 says you’ll call it a truck once it’s in your driveway.

I hopped out of my truck pretty pissed off to figure out what this asshole was throwing at it and by the time my feet hit the ground and I had turned around, he had a pistol pointed through the windshield at me.
Your contributions on this thread are really painting the Seattle area in a lovely light! (motorcycle attempted theft, shitty roads, rain, pistol toting road rager)!!

I could get a boat to any water around here on a single charge without issue, and the charging infrastructure on the highways out here is good enough that I could go any direction without any issues even with a trailer. Once I got over to Idaho it'd be a different story.
This sums up my issue and why I feel compelled to wait for the Max. Where I live now in NJ, not too worried about charging infrastructure. But in about 2 years, I'm moving to SW Colorado. Loaded up with gear and a RTT, in cooler or hotter temps, on 20" ATs, perhaps pulling a small travel trailer...I might be looking at 150 miles of range. Throw in a couple of days of camping...I worry that I wouldn't be able to take the truck to the very places I'm getting it for to take it.

Great story. I've got a big gripe though. Why no pictures of the motorcycles? This is very important. Please fix.

I just saw an SUV with a small rear hitch mounted plow. Could something like this not be modified and attached to the front tow hooks?

Rivian R1T R1S R1T isn't a 'Truck'? Think Again. Best vehicle I've ever owned, hands down. th-1230460878

Interesting. I think I'll ask Rivian

Judging by the number of threads here about people who can’t go in reverse in their Rivians because they lift their butts out of the seat to turn around, this will not work for 90% of us 😭

Next time someone gives you a hard time about your Rivian not being “a truck” because it doesn’t do “truck things,” you can always point out that a van is actually a superior option to a truck in 99% of “truck use cases” that don’t explicitly involve towing >7k lbs.
This is ESPECIALLY true here in the PNW where it sometimes rains.

I’ve been without a truck for a few years now - first time in my adult life after a succession of Toyota pickups - and that has cost us a LOT of money with uHaul this year ferrying stuff out to our property in Toutle. The R1T will be PERFECT… once it arrives. Already have a utility trailer for big stuff, plenty of space for the 2 dogs and dry space for the stuff that wouldn’thave a home in a “real truckload because of the aforementioned rain (or snow today).
A rack to put the canoe (and lumber, etc.) up top is the only missing accessory for now but it will come soon enough I’m sure.

I don’t know if you guys realize it but “real” trucks can have tonneau covers also. Ones that actually function reliably and are weatherproof, unlike the R1T cover in its current form.
