is this industry standard

I'm wanting to order a 2014 Rockwood 8280WS and trading my 2012 Salem TT on it. The dealer involved wants my trailer now so they can put it on their lot early to sell it. They said it would take 8 weeks to get my new trailer which would give a ETA of early June. That would not be a problem but if it takes 13 weeks or longer to get, then that could become a problem since we'd like to do some mid June and definitely July camping. Anybody else had to make this decision or did your dealer allow you to use your current trailer until the new one arrived? I had a bad experience ordering my F150 last year (ordered end of March and was finally received end of July) and really do not want a repeat of this with the fifth wheel. Just curious if this was standard practice or not?

I'd keep it till money exchange's hands and the papers are signed and the new ones on the lot.

My two cents.

^^Ditto! They should make you happy as a buyer, not the other way around.

I was allowed to continue using my Jayco until my new unit not only arrived, but until the weather got nicer. I made the deal in mid February the trailer was on the lot March 2nd. The dealer has stored my new unit free ever since, and I am still using my trade in. They are gonna bring my new unit to me on Friday and will be taking the trade in at that time. So basically I have been in possession of my trade in and have been using it. I signed it over to the dealer in February and will be using it until April 12th. The dealer agreed to this without any resistance at all. I would insist and tell them no dsale if they don't want to do it on your terms.

Sell your trade before you even take delivery and do your PDI? I wouldn't agree to that - ever.

I guess cancelling the order and getting an different dealer is out of the question, right?

Keep your trade until you have inspected and accepted the new unit. That is what I did. You have no leverage and no camper, if they sell your unit and you have troubles with the new one upon inspection. As long as you have yours in your possession you have the ability to reject theirs.
