Greetings folks. Just preorder and planning on am R1S. I see the rails from the R1T look to be the same as used on R1S. Has anyone heard if they plan to support weight of an RTT? Searched around for details but haven't seen comments on this particular question. N00b on the forum so forgive if missed it...thanks.

Rivian hasn't announced how much weight the roof rails can support. We only know that the R1S has 7.1 cu ft of rear storage and 11.1 cu ft of front trunk storage. It also has a towing capacity of 7,700 lbs.

FWIW, there have been plenty of pictures and videos showing a tent erected across the rails attached to the bed walls of the R1T. Such pictures/videos have implied at least two combinations of tent occupants: 1 male, 1 female, and a recent video of two female Rivian employees went on a camping road trip with R1T.

So factoring in the weight of the tent, 2 persons, some gear (sleeping bags, luggage, lantern, etc) you might be able to in the mean time come up with a rough minimum weight the rails could handle.

Thanks, I can't imagine that the plan with a activity vehicle would be to not have the structure to handle the same setup. It seems we will have to wait until some specifics on the R1S come out. Let's hope they can turn out some R1T/S in between all those Amazon vans!

If Rivian gets it right, this might be the ultimate off-the-grid vehicle
