"Dealers" HATE ordering.
They always want you to take what they have on the lot.
They don't want to wait 8-12 weeks to get paid either.
That made sense If they hate ordering Then how did they get all those units on their lots???

A better way to put it might have been to say...

Dealers would prefer to sell inventory on their lot over ordering a made-to-order unit for a customer.

Yep Much better way to say it.
I am sure that no dealer would Hate ordering a unit for a customer if the customer wanted a unit that wasn't in stock.

Matt - which dealer do you work for? Are you in sales, parts, or service? Wondering cause I'm right up the street in Crofton.

When we bought our WH 20MRB last year, the dealer had five of them on their lot. When the found out Jayco was discontinuing that model, they ordered a bunch because they knew it was a popular floor plan. Most of the had the same coffee interior and options, except one.

We just bought a tent trailer. We signed the deal on a Sunday, but they didnt have a saturday pick up time for three more weeks, so our trailer was "deal pending" until then as we didnt sign the financing until the day of pick up.

Mine arrived at the dealership almost 2 months ago.. I'm not picking it up for another month or so.. Here in the north east, the campgrounds aren't even open for another month or so, so I think a lot of folks are in no hurry to pick up their rigs, although my dealer wants units paid in full within a certain amount of time. I was at the dealership today.. If they're marked pending, and have a deposit, my dealership won't let anyone go in it. Which is the correct thing to do.They were loaded with 'sale pending' inventory. They can't get them fast enough. Lack of inventory is costing some Jayco dealers sales. Some folks will look at other brands just because they're available 'now'.

Only being devil's advocate here. If a dealer sells a model that is high in demand, he will have to order more anyway, so, with that in mind........If I were a dealer, knowing that I will have to wait 8-10 weeks for one merely for my lot (not counting the ones I already have ordered for customers).....I would rather keep a "sample" on the lot for possible buyers to look at for future ordering which equals more sales. Reason being....I'm not sure that many buyers order TTs without first actually seeing one. Also, to a large dealer, what would be wrong with having an investment (Sample) sitting on the lot being used as a selling tool, knowing it will sell later.
Maybe I would be a poor dealer and lose my backside, but just thinking....

It took about 10 mins after my wife proclaimed " This is the one! I want it." for the dealer to put a SOLD sign in the window and lock it up. 24 hours later it was gone from their website. WE picked it up two weeks later and went camping.
