Ordering A New Jayco Camper

Does anyone know how long it takes from the time a new camper is ordered, to the time it is actually built and delivered? We have just ordered one and are curious and maybe a bit nervous. I know that they do them in runs but am wondering how long it takes.

2014 Jayco White Hawk REKS on ordered

Thanks

We ordered ours at the end of November, 2012 and took possession around the middle of February, 2013.

No, to answer you question, but: Jayco had a regional rep in our area (don't remember his name or title) that could tell you when a specific Jayco PUP, TT, or MH would be built. I think the dealers can access the info you're looking for through the regional reps. My guess is that your TT has already been assigned a slot in the next scheduled run of that model. And if you make the right contact at Jayco they will tell you when that is. I would want to watch mine being built.

We ended not ordering because we went with a different model off the lot, but our regional rep could tell us when it would have been built. I don't know about delivery times.

Edit: It was about the same time frame as djalbrec's.

Both my units took about 8 weeks from the order date until it was ready to ship. From then it's another few weeks with movement and prep by the dealer. Figure a solid 2 months with seasonality swings in demand.

Your dealer should have a date within 2 weeks of the order that will be the "offline" date. This can change +- 7 days.

Good luck and enjoy the new unit.

Ours was 6 weeks from order to delivery. I am told that we just got lucky. We were told 6 to 10 weeks and that guesstimate was never modified

We have ordered 3 new units from online dealers. Two of them took right at 6 weeks from the date we ordered until they were ready to pick up. Our last one, 2014 375BHFS took a little less than a month.

We ordered our 2013 197 July 25th 2012 and accepted delivery of it August 23rd. We live approx 45 minutes from the factory and our dealer was making a trip to Middlebury the first week of August. He invited me to meet him there and I had the opportunity to see our TT on the assembly line. It took 3 days to complete. By the time it was transferred to the dealer and our scheduling to pick it up... Just under a month.

About six weeks for ours, which is just what the salesman told us.

We ordered the first week of April 2013. It was delivered in just under six weeks. This time frame included the switch from 2013 to 2014 White Hawk models. There were some major changes between the 2013 and 2014 models. I wouldn't be concerned.
