Solera not built until ordered by dealer?

We were all set up to finalize the trade of our diesel pusher and purchase of a Solera 24R tomorrow. Due to some technical difficulties, we are being told we will have to order to get the model we want. Apparently Forest River does not build a product until ordered by the dealer? I would think the model with range, oven, couch w/table, jacks, overhead bunk and 2 TV's would be the most popular. We do not care about what color. Not sure we are going to want to waste our Summer waiting 10 weeks for the right model.

Solera with a Sofa in place of dinette is very rare, that is the issue. Lots of Solera 24R's in stock, but not a lot with the sofa.

We were the first mfg to do a dinette OR sofa. Since all other mfg.'s only offered the sofa, the 24R with dinette sold the best and the quickest so that is what dealers stock and order.

Couch w/ table is actually not the most popular. I think well start to see that balance out here soon as more people realize they can get ours either way dealers will start stocking it both ways.

The day we were shopping for our 24R there was actually another older couple wanting the same exact sofa instead of booth dinette. I think older couples will make this a popular choice. In the meantime, we are completing our purchase today with a swap out dinette to sofa when the sofa arrives.
Thanks for your reply Brian.
