Does the tonneau rollup or does it just slide fully under the bed, still flat?
I believe it rolls up. I thought I saw somewhere that showed the box that it rolls up into is just behind the battery, but I cannot find that anywhere, so either it disappeared or I'm going crazy. (There is evidence that favors the latter).

I think so too... having said that, I think just sliding it fully under the bed, still flat, would take up less useful space, to do more things with the design.

It would be structurally dubious.

There's a video of one of the drivers from release night saying it's under/behind the back seat. Basically where the 'gear tunnel' is in a Rivian.

I don't think the seat will fold, because the rolled-up vault cover has to go somewhere.

The obvious place to put it is under the rear seat.
I believe you can see in the photo of the bed of the truck at three rear wall. The wall jogs out and is not straight. That is the vault cover. I'm guessing this. But it does look like a perfect spot. That would be behind the seat.

Tangent, rewatching the videos, the bed needs to be water tight, add air jets and water heater.

ultimate glamping in the CT hot tub.
