23 May: We just spoke with our dealer, who confirmed that our 23MRB has been ordered. I asked whether it's true that they wait for 5-6 orders before tooling up for any given model, and he said not with the new season's models. He guesstimated that somewhere between 500 and 1500 of the 23MRBs will be built and distributed around the country. He said that he'll wait a week and then ask about the status of ours, and hopes then to get a ~tentative~ delivery date. Once we get a VIN, we'll know better when to expect it. We don't have a trip scheduled until July, so we're not worried (yet). We kind of wish we'd seen the pix Waltah posted sooner, though. If we had, we might not have changed our upholstery order from Twilight to Shadow. We like the pix we've seen of Shadow, too, though.

If you just placed your order you can still change the interior color. I was told changes could be made all the way up till a week before it goes on the production line.

I just got an update from my dealer this morning and not only can they not give me a delivery window they also said an RV convention starts at the end of this week so all incoming deliveries will be put on hold for 1-2 weeks. I can't believe this........

I texted my salesman this morning, he said he'll check and get back to me... I'm still waiting. If you're NOT sure when it will be ready DO NOT tell people 6-8 weeks. It's 8 weeks to the day for me today.

Today is the start of week 10 for me. My salesman told me when I ordered it that in 13yrs he had never seen one go longer than 9 weeks. Looks like it will be more like 12-13 weeks......And I had to cancel my 2nd trip for the year that was scheduled for next week. I honestly am not trying to come on here and whine but this has been one of the most frustrating buying experiences I have ever had. I am glad I don't operate my construction company the way Jayco does their new orders; I would be out of business.

I figured I would be hearing of other people getting theirs as well, can't believe they are still pushing off your dates. Hang in there, like I said, the dealer had no idea mine shipped and it literally showed up 2 days after i talked directly to Jayco and they said it wasn't finished. So they move fast once it is done. Hang in there folks.

Jayco responded to me this morning and said our trailer is actually still in quality assurance and they don't know how long it will take nor can they provide a ship date. I just cannot wrap my mind around this. How in the world do they operate a business that cannot set and meet any commitments?

Unbelieveable! How can a manufacturing operation run without a schedule?

My salesman got back to be late yesterday. Says I am slated for June 18th. "Right in the 8-12 week time frame we discussed".
That's WRONG!!! There was never a 8-12 week lead time ever discussed. I have all of my notes that all say 6-8 weeks. I will never order again that's for sure. Just saying.
