    Completely agree. It seems that everyone has a different take on what this truck is supposed to be. As I have stated in different earlier posts, this truck is too expensive and too nice to go beat up somewhere and then pay through the nose to have it repaired. IMHO, the RT1 is going to be a light duty showpiece. And yes, I know that you can spend almost as much on a loaded up Tahoe or something, because I used to have one. BUT, I treated it like my baby just like I will my Rivian. For everybody out there in Rivian Land who plans to really use this truck as an adventure/camper/off-road/heavy duty truck, well, you must have way more expendable cash than I do. And you’re probably going to need it. But, go out there and thrash, it’s your truck. :)

    If the drivers information panel cannot be fully customized that is one thing I would like to see. Having all the gauges or panel be widget to put them where you want to see them.
    Definitely want to see a solar tonneau cover to all charging or extending of range.

    Anyone know what towing or hauling will do to the battery usage? I was thinking it might be nice if Rivian made their own line of trailers with a batter in the base frame the same as the vehicle. Have a way in the connections to allow the trailers battery to be used and charged when charging the vehicle. Could help save or extend range when hauling or traveling.

    RJ mentioned that at full towing capacity you can expect about half the normal range.

    Headrest with adjustable tilt!!! All these new cars have headrests that push my head forward making long road trips a pain in the neck... literally.

    Not with a tall trailer. If you have a tall RV which creates a lot more wind resistance, the towing range will be about 1/4.
