Waiting on our 3170DS

Winter is finally drifting away, though potential snow this weekend is trying to remind me it isn't over yet.
I'm told our offline date is 4/15 but then it goes to paint so expected delivery is early May.
Wish there was a way to see the unit and get pics during the build. we are so excited thinking about the times ahead and the anticipation is killing me.
I find myself having a tough time falling asleep and spending time instead cruising the forums. If you can't tell, this will be our first RV after years of talking about it. So excited.

I'm very impressed with all of you forum members, it gives me some piece of mind knowing that if I have questions or issues once we have our unit that there is a place I can ask questions and recieve solid answers no matter how stupid a question I may ask.

Thanks in advance to you all, cause I'm sure I'll have many!

Jaibyrd

Can hardly wait for same snowstorm. . Spring really? Congrats on new motorhome, we have the same model and love it! The forum has a lot of great info, have had to refer to it on trips. It's true u will never remember half of what they told you on pick up. We head out for our first trip of the year in 2weeks, hopefully the snow will be off the top by then.

I know it's not much comfort jaibyrd but every day is one day closer to getting 'the call' from your dealer that your 3170DS is in. I literally wore out the brochure waiting for our Sabre to arrive at our dealer .

How about at least a pic of the unit on the schedule? You have a unit number and a VIN to go with your offline date.

And please remember, this is sort of like building a house. Construction delays, parts shortages, etc, can and do happen. This is not a process you want rushed.

At some point I'd love to have a system to help you get pictures of your unit as it comes down the line. Right now, we are just slammed and can barely keep up with dealer calls, shows, etc, etc. But it's on the agenda.

Nice! Thank you Brian. Appreciate you taking the time to pull that up. I'll take any updates at this point, just adding to the excitement.
Assuming no issues, under current conditions, what would be your best guess on delivery? I was told offline and then to paint before shipping up to MA.

Well, let's hope that was the last one. Snow is slowly receding, but I imagine it'll be around a bit longer with this cold. I have been seeing some brown and green spots peeking through the snow. Hope you guys enjoy the trip!

My wife won't let me near the brochure anymore.

2 weeks for paint and a week to ship, best case.

Did you get the kids bunk or the computer desk? I got the computer desk and I love it! You get more cabinets with the computer desk. My only complaint is no place to put my printer, but I just stash it under the desk and then have to carefully re-arrange it when I pack up, so I can put the chair over the top.
