Been some years since I ordered a unit from the factory. The story I got from the dealership owner was that if the factory makes models "A" thru "F", they make all the "A's" that are on order, for which they have pre-ordered parts, at the same time, then all be "B's" and so forth. That's so they can stage all the unique parts to a single model, while buying and receiving the parts for the next, and to not have to warehouse the "C" thru "F" items that are not in manufacture. So if you order a "C" while they are building the "A's" and buying parts for the "B", you'll likely have yours in 6 to 8 weeks. On the other hand, if you order an "A" while they are building the "A's", it's unlikely you'll see yours before 12 to 16 weeks. Also, if you order a "E", and there's no one else who wants an "E" they may skip over the "E" for more pressing orders. I got mine in about 6 weeks, whereas he had told me to expect about 10. His explanation was that we hit the production run on my model at the best possible time. It's a hit or miss proposition and someone's past experience with a particular model/manufacturer is probably not applicable positive or negative.
