Question How long before we get our Flagstaff?

We paid our deposit and ordered our new flagstaff 318fkbss on May 18th. We have not received our confirmation from Forest River yet. Our dealer told us:
"Production takes 4 to 5 weeks, then a week to bring it from Ind. to Tx"
and.....
"We have been in contact with the factory, to see where the confirmation is, and when production will start. They tell us they will send the confirmation 7 to 10 days before production.. I promise to stay on it for you !!!!!"
Do it's been almost a month and will take at LEAST 6 more weeks. Is this normal? It's been 4 weeks already and not even started yet.

Sounds frustrating. We discussed ordering but decide to find one at dealer to avoid the wait. We search all over Texas for our model and options. Only had to settle for one option not to our choosing. It was a different style fridge but I figure we could handle it better than the long wait for it to be built.

Hope you get good news soon

I feel for ya TF. I had ordered ours and finally had to cancel and pick one from stock. I lost all but 2 options but am generally very happy.

Best of luck!

We got ours last summer and it was ordered on May 6 and delivered approx July 23. I remember because it was ordered on my birthday and we got it less than a week before we left on vacation and had to get it ready to go in time. It was well worth the wait. Hope you get yours soon.
In rereading your post I think you are under the impression that it takes 4 to 5 weeks to actually build your trailer and it actually is a matter of days not weeks. I don't remember getting anything confirming when it would be ready but it was a week longer than the dealership had anticipated.
