I made my downpayment last year with the intention of buying a ST1. I bought an 23CB Airstream recently. Max tow weight 6000lbs. I wonder what towing does to the longevity of the Rivian battery pack. How will it affect my mileage?

So I might simplify this a bit too much but if a 10,000 lbs trailer depreciates the battery range by 40 - 50% would a 6,000 lbs trailer depreciate the range by 24 - 30% given my trailer is 40% lighter than your 10k lbs?
With the 180KW battery that would bring the theoretical range down to approx. 290 - 310 miles. If that is the case I might be able to live with it.

Thx for the response.

So I received my invite from Rivian yesterday to start making vehicle choices. I wanted to go for a180Kwh R1S SUV. However I noticed that only the 135Kwh version is offered right now. Does anybody know when the 180Kwh will become available?

I have one other question, I am originally from the Netherlands but work in Portland Oregon. Once my work permit here in the US expires I'll return to Europe and want to take the car back home. Recently a read up on Tesla's that got exported to Europe only to find out there are a lot of issues with charging compatibility also navigation that won't work there as well. Does anybody know if the Rivian would have the same issues? If that is the case I will have to cancel my downpayment and give up on the idea of driving electric for a while.

So, that makes it maybe?? with an adapter?? CCS Combo 2 to CCS Combo 1 Adapter | EV Charger Adapter Factory.
I would say don't buy an EV until you are back in Europe. No point in getting messed up by standards issues.
Yeah it is rather risky to get the car in North America only to find out when I'm back in Europe it won't work. It really is unfortunate since cars in my home country the Netherlands are heavily taxed. I would basically not be able to afford the Rivian there. If I buy it here in the USA and drive it no less than 6 months before I take it back to Europe I am allowed to bring it along as household goods tax free. I can only do that once. I understand Rivian is reluctant to shed a light on this issue right now. They wouldn't want folks to start a parallel export business to Europe until they are good and ready to start their own Rivian business in Europe.
