I drove past the Rivian HQ in Orange County earlier today. Impressed with how much was going on in and around their building and the silver R1T looks DAMN good in the sun.

Have we seen this Awning in action?

That is the first time we have seen the awning and it is apparent that this is the first time that those two men have ever used an awning.

Where is a Guide when you need one??

those probably are the guides trying out all the accessories they're going to package with our sales come next week...

I am glad to see the R1T with a pick of both sizes of the awnings. I'd go small with R1T and Large with R1S. What I'd rather do is mount it over the bed, but I don't think it would extend enough to cover...

All of the Guide training is being held in Normal.

Hopefully they have a 180° and 270° awning as well. If not, I will be shopping for one elsewhere.

Question about this, If i drive down to HQ are there usually trucks outside on a daily basis? I haven't seen one in person yet.

Looks like they have the poles upside down, and they're not going to be any sort of successful in the wind without being able to secure with guylines.

waiting for R1S LE
I have driven by that place a couple of times, albeit not in the last 4 weeks. I was never able to catch it when an R1T or R1S was outside and the big doors were always closed. Did they give you any bad vibes or anything for hanging out and taking pics?

This is my first time being by their OC HQ, good chance I just got lucky with all the activity going on or they're planning something 🤔

Pictures don't even do it justice!

I didn't get any bad vibes from them, I waved to a few guys and they waved back. But I'm sure if loads of people start showing up that could change lol.

Jsidell noted the same in the Thoughts on seeing a Rivian in person for the first time thread: "The LA Silver has a slight blue undertone that was striking in person and is different from any other silver that traditional OEMs have out today. I am not a silver fan, either, but it impressed me....."

If only we could see one in person.

A guy can dream, can't he?

Looks to be the sameish one he posted on Mothers day no ?

That looks like some homemade janky painters tarp tied off to the crossbars in a couple spots. But I could be wrong...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Most awnings with that kind of coverage like a 180°, have a bar or multiple bars that swing open 180º revealing the 2 or 3 additional bars that fan out the awning. Similar to this awning from 23ZERO below. Some of these also do not require guylines or extra supports which makes them even better around a tight campsite, sites with kids, or campers that have had too much to drink...
