Hey Dog Lovers, Campers, Contractors, and DIY folks! How do we petition the inventor of "Dog-Mode", to give Cyber a pass thru rear window option?

Honestly, I don't know that any metal wall would be needed over the tonneau channel if it's as insulated as advertised. It could just be the wall, meeting with the window. When you want the pass-through, you just roll the tonneau a little further into position.

I hadn't really considered that, which I guess could be possible. But if that was the design for the passthrough, anytime you have the cover closed, your passthrough would be open.

One similar idea that I had was for the wall to only be on the back of the seats and no back wall for the bed. It would basically be the same idea as yours but if you had the cover closed, you would still have the option of having the passthrough closed. However this would also require more space for the cover to completely go down when the vault is open, this would allow the passthrough to be open when you are using a tent like in Tesla picture.

I ultimately just thought that a wall on each side of the cover so the cover can easy fold with the attached walls would probably be best, at least in my own personal opinion. It's not like these need to be overly thick walls and i'm sure the 3mm stainless that they will be using for the exoskeleton will probably do perfectly to prevent dents from anything that is being hauled and be thin enough to make sure the passthrough wall isn't too thick so it can easily lay flat on the back of the seats when folded down.

Depends on how the track is designed. It could have enough pieces to fill the gap.

It would have the downside of things falling back against a moving object from the cab or bed, though.

I did consider that too if they had a longer cover, however this would require more storage space for the cover and the bigger issue that then anytime you have vault closed, the passthrough would be closed. What if someone wants to sleep in the vault while closed, or have their dogs back there but still able to come through the passthrough.

The only solution I could think for that would be a split cover on the same track, That way you could have the vault closed or open with the passthrough open or closed, allowing any combination. But this just seems to complicate things even more. Since the cover is flexible, it's likely that having it bend in a wall wouldn't be an issue at all, which makes the the current look of the cybertruck work perfectly and they would just need to adjust it to fold on the back seats.

While other designs that we've discussed here are certainly possible, needing a split cover to give all 4 possibilities:

vault open - pass open
vault open - pass closed
vault closed - pass open
vault closed - pass closed

seems to not really be worth the benefit, at least in my own personal opinion. Clearly I could be mistaken and maybe Tesla would just replace the entire wall with a split cover, or maybe they would require the pass to be closed anytime the vault is closed.

Like I said, depends on the design of the track: Not all the segments on the track need to be permanently linked in a chain. Some segments could be held back at certain points.

Think of how a cable car works or one of those theme-park rides; the panels can be grabbed and held back While others move forward.

I think a much more elegant solution is to have the midgate glass flips up and into the cabin against the roof glass and the wall between the tracks flip in to the cab, possibly flipping a small section on each side to fold over the tracks, though that extra bit just adds more complexity.

Having these more complicated solutions I think would make it not possible on launch. It would have to be a major redesign later... Or maybe an option on the future smaller truck, where the smaller bed would be helped better by being able to extended it into the interior of the cab.

It sounds like a CyberVan is needed for all our fury friends.
I don't really know about the exoskeleton body can be changed in the back of cabin to allow a pass through but I know I could use it, What do you say Elon?

Since the wall has to be hollow for the very wide cover to open and close, the structural support has to be on each side of the wall and under. The real question is whether or not there is enough room to connect these walls together on either side without taking away from the strength of the vehicle. If they can, I don't think adding a folding feature would be very difficult. Even the space required to fold the wall down shouldn't be a problem if Tesla is able to make the seats fold similar to how they do on the Chevy Avalanche. I would really like the option because the bottom of the reat seats become a wall between the passthrough bed and back of the front seats. That way i'm not scratching up the back of my seats when i'm hauling anything with the passthrough open.
