Yeah, I would have bought one off of the lot but the 23MBH are pretty hard to come by especially with the options we wanted. I still don't understand how a production factory cannot guarantee a finish date. Production is all about efficiency, if you aren't meeting dates then you are losing money. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

Makes no sense. I do not understand how they offer the next year of rvs for sale without a brochure, price list, or any information. I am sure it is not a surprise to them when they will be coming out.

Question I have, was that date really a guess from the dealer or a production date assigned by factory. I get a company vehicle every two years, and can tell you there is a big difference between the initial target date and the factory assigned build date.


Also if a supplier has a slip and misses a delivery date that will cascade. In my business if what we forecast differs greatly from real orders we can be short on certain parts. for example if we expect 100 orders with 20% picking certain option, but end up getting 120 orders with 25% picking that option we go into a backlog hold status on later orders until we can get resupplied.

Ours was a guess from the dealer, but you would think they would have some idea of delivery.

Ours was an estimate by the dealer as well with a maximum of 8 weeks, which would be the 15th. But two weeks ago the dealer got an update from Jayco that it would come off of the line on the 8th. Now its the 22nd, I understand delays, etc; but this much variable is crazy.

Well one of the variables is delivery from the factory to where you buy it .... the farther away from Indiana the longer it could take... my dealer was in Columbus Indiana so when mine was finished they went up and picked it up for me.... transport companies this time of year get slammed with new units from not only jayco but every other manufacturer in Indiana which has quite a few.

Hey folks, Im looking at my order sheet and have the following info...

Serial (is this the VIN?) 1UJBJ0BP6G14C0054
required date: 5/26/15
estimated ship: 5/7/15
ship date: (empty)

is it a good sign I have the VIN already? is that an indication of it being under construction? This is my first jayco and my first new RV. I guess I could call my salesman. I just figured I would see what type of info I could get off the forum here.

thanks!

I got my VIN 10 days ago and my date changed thereafter. I don't think it directs relates to a delivery date.

We've always just bought from the lot because I am an impatient person who hates to wait for anything. I am now wishing I would have just looked to find one in stock somewhere.

I ordered on 4/1 as well. I was just told by dealer it was scheduled to be completed by the end of May. My CA deliver by date is 7/1. Seems like the big variable is the shipping.
