Coparts has a few "slightly used" EDV500's and 700's.
Non drivers, move in ready!
(Although you might have a hard time evicting the critters that have taken up residence) :CWL: 🤣

Although after looking closer there is one that has some roof damage that doesn't look too bad from the available pictures. Guess not worth it for Amazon to fix it and they totalled it.
That's OK! What's wrong with a fixer upper? Any discount can only help.

That's ironic because they refuse to do any tire mounting/balancing/installation on Rivians when it comes to their mobile repair service.

As much as I like Discount Tire, I’m wishing success upon TireRack.

@Sgt Beavis Appreciate the kind words! Just a friendly reminder...Tire Rack now operates under the Discount Tire umbrella. You can expect the same level of service no matter which brand you choose!
Sooo, What I'm hearing is your gonna order a few extra EDV 700 vans when the deal is announced and then resell they to Rivian Forums members to upfit into lifestyle camper vans.

No chance at all - that contract was signed before Rivian even shipped their first vehicle. The USPS NGDV is a done deal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oshkosh_NGDV
USPS also placed an order for approx. 10,000 Ford E-transit -

so I wouldn't go so hard on "no chance at all". specially when they just announced buying EVs for testing from a small startup such as Canoo -

@Discover: It's like you didn't read a word of what I said in #9, or follow any of the links I provided.

Let me repeat: The contract for the USPS Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) has already been signed. It was a process started in 2015 with the contract being awarded in 2021. This process will NOT be redone. The NGDV is going to be that silly looking Oshkosh vehicle, because they are the competitor who met all the USPS specifications and won the contract two years ago. Delivery is starting in the next few months.

I specifically addressed the Canoo and Transit purchases back in #9. Those are not NGDV. And Rivian doesn't have vans on the GSA schedule.

Does this mean they’ll know how to use jack pucks in the proper place on Rivian R1s?
I'll help......;)

Very cool. I hope that USPS would pick Rivian if they are serious :fingerscrossed:
Circling back on this. With the confirmed right-hand drive option for the R2 and smaller form factor, it almost seems like a no-brainer to make a postal service/ mail carrier based on the platform.
