Special ordering time to delivery

For anyone who has ordered a trailer recently what turn around time frame have you been given? Have interested parties in our current trailer but I haven't found what I'm looking for on lots. We just finished our first trip and the next isn't until the beginning of June. Worried that even if I special order what I want within the next two weeks it won't be ready by the beginning of June. And would ordering from a dealer in Indiana near the factory cut down on time? Thanks for any info....

Most dealers will tell you 8 to 12 weeks. I find these estimates conservative. Mine was ready in 5 weeks. But, it depends on the cycle of production. They will make 5rs, then TTs. It also revolves around what models. So, it is just the luck of when your order goes in and what cycle they currently in.

I picked mine up in Middlebury and took the factory tour while I was there.

SouthCo,

Our dealer ordered our new Eagle 5er on December 8th and it arrived at the dealer on March 14th. That's 14 weeks but we had 2 holidays in that period.
The bad news is I did a preliminary PDI and generated a list of items that need to be addressed which requires ordering new parts. This will add another 3 weeks.
You also maybe up against another timing issue with the switch to the 2017 line up. IMO ordering from a dealer close to the factory may cut the delivery time some but it won't expedite your order.

We ordered an Eagle HT in early January and it's scheduled to come off the line tomorrow (March 28) but not news as to when a delivery driver will be available - so we don't know yet when it will arrive in January.

The dealer said that the factory had just finished a run of Eagle HT's in late December and we were first in a new batch run startin in late March.

So I agree with Fairenatic - you can't generalize, there are too many variables.

We ordered ours April 1st last year and received 13 weeks later in July. It was right when they were switching to the new model year. We did have to wait a while after ordering before it was on the line. It also took 1-2 weeks to receive it in CA after it was finished.

We ordered ours in Mid-Jan, were given an April estimated delivery, and it arrived on March 18.

X2 on everything said. Ordered our 23RLSW the end of Dec. and still waiting. It's suppose to be in production now so we are hoping delivery will be by the middle of April.


I wouldn't wait very long if that's the route you want to go. If possible find out from Jayco what the production schedule is for the model you want to get.


I would think spring starts the busy cycle for buying and even possibly more delays.


I couldn't find a existing unit with the options I wanted so that's the reason I special ordered.

Nice Logan! We are on a similar schedule. Ordered February 19 and last week was told it was being built this week or next. Are you picking up from Tampa RV?
