Congrats! The DW is driving me nuts almost daily in regards to "how much longer", and I don't know how she is going to react if I tell her it might take this long!!! But even with that, if our trailer takes 12 weeks or more to get here, that introduces a whole different issue that we never anticipated being a problem.
We ordered ours (330RSTS) on June 17th and at that time, we were told 6-8 weeks. Then a few weeks later during a conversation with the Jayco rep about a few details on the new redesign, he looked up our order and broke the bad news to me that it would most likely be 8-10 weeks, and a timeframe that our salesman is still sticking to.
If our trailer ends up being 12 weeks or more before we take possession, we are going to be uncomfortably close to our scheduled departure for Florida in mid October, which also leaves little to no time for a thorough shakedown and get any major issues repaired.
But the worst part is if our trailer ends up having any major issues that delays our departure in October, we stand to lose over 1100.00. We had to cancel this same trip last year with our current trailer, because it had major issues that were not going to be repaired in time, and STILL have not been resolved. The resort issued us a credit, minus their 150.00 processing fee, that has to be used within 12 months. So if we end up not being able to make the trip this year, we lose over 1100.00!!!
I can feel the gray hairs growing as I type this!!
