    I saw the video as well, but what they said was that they can support the entire GVW (vehicle plus max rated load) on a two inch square with no damage.

    Not a link to the video, but an article at least.

    RIVIAN’S BATTERY PACK: CARBON FIBER AND BALLISTIC SHIELDS
    I saw it from afar. Carbon fiber. Walking toward a station that was outfitted with Rivian’s line of 135 kWh and 180 kWh battery packs, my eyes were immediately drawn to a fibrous-looking cover plate.

    Securing Rivian’s battery modules and high-voltage cabling in place is a carbon-fiber composite shell. Engineers were able to create a unique, high-strength geometric shape out of the carbon fiber while keeping weight to a minimum. Rivian seals the battery pack to be completely watertight. The pack is bolted into the frame of the vehicle and then covered by a smooth ‘ballistic shield’, which prevents damage to the underside of the battery pack and protects occupants within the vehicle’s cabin. The ballistic shield is fitted to the entire underbody of the vehicle.

    Having a watertight battery pack that’s armored by a ballistic shield bodes well for a company whose mission is to build extreme off-road vehicles. That’s the messaging Rivian wants consumers to see. The vehicles are designed to be adventure-ready, being able to wade through 1 meter of water, climb 45-degree inclines, and drive over boulders.

    Rivian’s Executive Director of Engineering and Programs, Mark Vinnels, told Teslarati that they dropped the vehicle on a boulder from 2 ft in the air, just to be able to verify the battery pack’s integrity in extreme off-road situations.

    A two inch square is 4 square inches. So, 1,500 PSI. Not bad, but a pointy rock impacted at any speed is going to be tens of thousands of PSI.

    Do you happen to have a link of that video? I missed that. From Rivian's own media releases it sounds like they might offer a tent accessory themselves, altho they were not really clear on that point, saying that the telescoping roof rack will integrate with a range of accessories which I assumed would be offered by Rivian.

    I also second the call for a built-in heater without the need for the engine to run that someone else mentioned.

    The video was on the official Rivian Instagram account, and I can’t attach it here, but here are some of the pictures from the same post.

    Thanks for that! Looks like it is made by Tepui but also Rivian branded so that should be an 'official' accessory. Can't wait to see what else they have coming!

    I hope the air suspension can level the truck out for rooftop tent camping. I don't want to have to park on rocks or stumps in order to level out the bed!

    I wrote Tepui about this about a week ago, here is their response:

    Hello,

    I have a pre-order for a Rivian and saw that you have a tent for that truck. While I know it isn't out yet, can you give me some specifics on what what on that truck? Is it a model that you currently make with just the Rivian logo? I currently have a 4runner but want to make sure that what I purchase fits nicely on the back of the truck when I get it sometime next year.

    Thank you!

    Hi Andreas,

    The tent on the back of the Rivian was a custom 1-off Tepui LoPro 2. It is not available yet but should be available in the next few months. It will not be available in that yellow color, rather it will come in a glacier gray color.

    Cheers,

    Max
