Hi all! Just submitted my R1S pre-order (El Cap / Black Mountain / Dark AT wheels).

This rig will be replacing a Tacoma and complement my overland H3 rig. Can't wait to put the R1S through its paces. It'll be interesting to see how much having a RTT + overland trailer will impact the range.

Hope to learn more from the ROF community and contribute as much as I can!

Thanks for the welcome!

My main considerations for the R1S spec
1) balance the everyday needs of people/dogs transport hence R1S vs the R1T
2) capability (non-paved road performance / inclement weather performance / gear storage)

I'm researching more into the logistics of setting up the home charging with Rivian Wall Charger (or a charging unit as listed in the Tech section) and it seems pretty straightforward. My garage setup is flexible and I should have no issue being able to get the required power.

Any suggestions you may have are more than welcome!

Congrats on ordering your R1S @Takt! What mods have you done to your overland H3? Are you going to do anything similar to the R1S?

The H3 has the usual suspects in terms of mods and such. Winch / Center & Rear locker / 33" tires (35" dogs it too much) / RTT / awning / shower & water system / armor & sliders / lights / comms. She performs well for base camp and getting to the back country in Colorado.

Things I'd probably want to do on the R1S right off the bat would be winch / armor / storage drawers for the rear. Rest of my gear is bolt on or on the trailer so I don't think I'll be adding too much else. Famous last words though...
