Question RV Direct.....still waiting?

Well it's 3 weeks past the original completion date of our unit. We had purchased plane tickets for our trip to pick it up 30 days after it was supposed to be complete but it looks like that was not enough of a buffer.


I'm beginning to wonder if this is a scam and I just lost 10 K!!!!!!

This is a very busy time of year for the industry.
Have you been in contact with them?

10 weeks seems to be the minimum for this time of year.
And considering the improving economy, the factory may have experienced higher orders than they planned for.
Your seller should be able to provide you with a good estimate for delivery now, as it must be getting close. Just phone them and insist on a date.

10 weeks would be at the very least minimum this time of year .
I think the dealer underestimated which wouldn't surpise me .
As bakken said this is there busy time, I'd expect 12 - 14 weeks to me pretty normal

Do you know for sure the factory has completed your unit?

The first date was end of June, Second was first week in July......as you can see they have come and gone.

We ordered our Solera on 12/5 from RVDirect. It was finished and ready for delivery on Feb 18. We picked up on the 28th. Pretty painless, though we were told delivery time increases the closer you get to summer. Based on our experience I would use RVDirect again.

I got my Roo in May. It took about a month longer than quoted by the dealer.
