Wow, that is a long wait, but it is the busy season for RV Dealers. I guess it is good for the RV industry that sales have picked up.

When we picked ours up from RV Direct in Orlando it was off season in November and we had to wait a week for PDI and pickup.

It was our first time dealing with RV Direct and the whole process from the sale though the PDI when very smooth with no surprised or issues.

We are driving to Albany to pick up our camper this Saturday, May 12. There was a few week wait from when they received the camper and when they had a Saturday open for us to go get it. We are very anxiously waiting for this weekend to arrived. Went to the registry today, plates and registration is all set.

We have a 3 hour drive so we plan on going up on Friday night!!

Mine came in and I didn't even get an email when it came off the line or shipped. I got a email 5/1 saying "Your camper has arrived at or Orlando dealership". After I asked could I pick it up on 5/5 I was told "Booked". When I commented that there was a bottleneck, I got the "we are very busy speech" not to mention a defensive and combative attitude. Long story short. It's on their lot just shy of 3 weeks before I can get it. Done with them.

I was able to pick up our 2011 just a couple of days after it arrived in Des Moines. However, to their defense, it was a January pickup. I understand things are much different in May than January. will robinson, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who feels like "they are doing us a favor by selling to us." Completely different attitude than I run my operation but it apparently works for them. I'm not going to ***** too much as this is the 2nd unit I've bought from them in 2 years but think I may try out their competition on my next one.

It was a bit annoying to find out that we would not be able to pick up the camper for weeks after it had arrived. Basically, we paid the a camper that we could not take home with us.

BUT - We are trying to stay positive and think of all the fun we will have in it once we get it!! Three more sleeps and that baby is ours!!

safetylady,

Your on the short end of your wait now! Congratulations, and I know your gonna love it. I just sent back all my financing paperwork this afternoon, so hoping to get some sort of a timeline early next week. I know they said that Jayco is or at least was running about a week to a week and a half behind with their off-line deliveries. Hell I'd even be willing to drive to Middlebury and pick it up myself if they'd let me. Hopefully they come through for me within the next couple of weeks.

Sorry to hear but good to know about the backlog at this time of year. I'll probably get my next unit from RV Direct and the last thing you want to do is wait another 3 weeks after the long wait for manufacturing! I guess timing is everything.

If you have the option I would recommend ordering in the late fall to early winter. I was able to pick our 2011 up the same week it arrived in Des Moines. RV Direct's competition assured me I would be able to pick the unit up within 72 hours of it being released to shipping. But they were about $400.00 higher for the same unit spec'd identical so I went back with RVD.
Told today that it's probably going to be the end of the month.

Jrmay25,
I will be picking ours up tomorrow afternoon. If I see your new rig in the lot I will let it know that you already miss it. The wait sure sucks, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

highlife4me,
Let them know if they can bump the 365BHS that's coming in next week and headed for Missouri ahead of the rest, I'll tip them very well.

Enjoy your new unit and safe travels.
