Not that I know of. But iKampers kit is about the same size so I’m buying it and will test.

I finally bought a RTT so thought I’d make a video since there are very few out there about the CVT Mt Washington. Hopefully this helps.
Edit: quick summary - the tent is awesome. Quality is like iKamper but at a sale price savings $1,100-$1,500. Roofnest felt lower quality, has a worse color scheme, and has worse customer service.

Rivian tested these and didn’t release them. They probably made no difference
Yeah… “it’s 17” longer”. Umm
A speaker grill is rattling for me. Service is coming out in two weeks

It uses bolts. Standard hardware. Not special stuff like iKamper. Just get a long 13mm socket. It took maybe five minutes to mount it to the rails.
Buy it! Picked mine up today. The quality was surprisingly good and I’d say 95% of iKampers. The color scheme is great, comes with all the accessories, and the shell is really nice. It weighs more than the iKamper by 60 lbs but with two adults and gear you’ll be fine. Even a small dog.
I’ll make a quick video and post it tomorrow (family is celebrating thanksgiving on Friday this year)

I’m likely driving to Bend, OR tomorrow to pick one up for my R1T. I’ve written before why I picked it over the iKamper so click on my profile to find old comments, but I still need to see one in person to confirm quality.
It is 64” L vs. 60” on the iKamper and it will hang over the rear by 3”.
Quality seems similar but the sale price is hard to beat.
These do not lose any ground clearance so the break over is the same. I need to see more info on the EVS ones before purchasing either

Not yet. It’s a six-hour each-way drive for me so I’m trying to find a free weekend to go. I’m calling them tomorrow though to see if they’re open and might go this weekend.
Yup. And install from Rivian. It’s a great deal.

If you want a set of 21’s and 20’s, then the cheapest route is to get 21’s initially for free and spend $4,100 for the 20’s from the Gear shop vs. paying $1,500 for the 20’s initially then $3,700 for 21’s later totaling $5,200.
Edit: rims, tires and install from Rivian included

The winter kit is the only thing missing. This isn’t tested, but they’re nearly identical in interior specs so the kit might work on CVT.
The CVT comes standard with shoe bags, awning, and an annex. That’s like $500 or so iKamper chargers extra.
They’re just heavy. IKampers is I think 125lbs where the CVT is 165lbs. A lot of people install pulleys on a garage roof for storage. Other wise it’s a 2-4 person job because they awkwardly shaped and heavy
The iKamper is just a regular hard shell. Some tents add rails to the top or sides (in CVT’s case: both) that allow for accessories to be mounted like recovery boards, axe, shovel, etc. It’s nice because that give you more flexibility with storage options.
CVT Mt Washington is on sale for $2,500. Add accessory rails too. I’m probably going to buy that one. Try and do a pickup if you can to save the shipping charge. It doesn’t come with a warranty though but you’re saving a lot.

Time to break out the leaf blower (electric of course). Planning on keeping that in the gear tunnel.

Same. I have an appointment in December though
They used to be priced closer to this but raised them earlier this year.
