Order Date?

I am working with a dealer on purchasing an incoming Sunseeker.

The dealer sent me the order confirmation from Forest River. It shows the options included on the unit, what the unit’s serial number will be, the order number, & the order date.

The order date is listed as 5/30.

Based on that, I assume the unit will be delivered to the dealer around approximately 7/30. This leaves an 8 week order processing time. I’ve heard that number from a couple different sources recently.

But the dealer is telling me the following: They actually ordered it in April. The order date is when Forest River put it in. It should be at the dealer in a week or so.

Does this sound right?

We would want to get the unit sooner rather than later. 7/30 seems like a big difference than a week or so.

Yes. The order date is when Forest River puts the unit into the schedule, it really has nothing to do with the date we get the actual order. Also, if there is a unit already ordered, we will always try to match it up/change specs to get retail orders faster.
