One important thing to check is the undercarriage for salt corrosion from winter roads up north. If it shows any on the landing gear, springs, nuts and bolts have them clean that up. In time the corrosion could be devastating to the rv. Took delivery on ours in Florida the end of December, it was pulled in from Indiana through salted roads and had corrosion buildup already. FYI

My custom ordered Class C took 13 weeks. Estimate at purchase was 6 - 8 weeks.

We ordered our 282RK on September 15th and told we would have in in 6 weeks or around the end of October. That day came and went. We called the dealer many times trying to get any kind of information. We never did get a call back from the dealer.
I called the factory in Oregon and was told they could not tell us anything. They wouldn't even confirm that our trailer was being built. We finally got a call from Brad Johnson at FR. He confirmed that the trailer was indeed on the line and was waiting for parts from their vendors. Explained that all of the new features in the 2014 1/2 models had overwhelmed some of the vendors. He told us we should be camping by Nov 21st. We actually picked it up from the dealer on November 30th. Brad continually kept us updated as to the status and made sure it was shipped to the dealer as soon as it was done at the factory. Unfortunately, we picked up the trailer the day before the first big snow storm of the season hit. We got it parked before the snow started flying, but just barely. We have been checking things out as we can. We've fixed lunch a couple of times and dinner a couple of times. I even watched a couple of the NFL playoff games in it. It's been just too cold to sleep in it yet though. We may give in and do that soon.
Hang in there. I know exactly what you're going through. We were going crazy waiting. I totally agree on the idea of a tracking number and a way to go online and check the status of your order.

Well, this coming Monday marks 12 weeks, and still no TT. The weather has been bad, so I guess that's hindering the arrival somewhat. We were even iced in for a few days here in the Pensacola, FL area. :`(

Know what you're going through. But it'll be worth the wait.

She's here! She's here! Tara is finally here. Twelve weeks to the day. Going to stop by after work on Wednesday to see her, and the PDI is set for Saturday.

Where shall we go? What shall we do? Oh, I can't think about this now! I'll go crazy if I do! I'll think about it tomorrow. But I must think about it. I must think about it. What is there to do? What is there that matters? Tara! Home. I'll go home.

Sorry...couldn't resist the Gone With The Wind quote.

The pre-inspection went great, and the hitch gadgets have been installed. Very FEW issues: the smoke detector wasn't working, and there was a missing screw, as well as a broken screw, on a storage compartment door. Tara is BEAUTIFUL!! Saturday is the official PDI, and then we're taking off for a quick/short/nearby getaway!

Does not prove a thing without a picture or two?
