No Room At The Inn..

Okay..
So the camper gets delivered this Thursday...thats a little over 36 hours from now (but who's counting). However, I kinda feel like Charlie Brown who said he wasnt really excited for Christmas. I'm just not feeling it for the camper. Well..I am..but I'm not. The picture posted is what it looks like outside right now today. Thats where I was going to put the new camper. Under normal weather conditions I was thinking I might have the popup sold off already. So until the snow melts I need to store it on the driveway. Problem is there is three feet of ice on both sides of the driveway and the driveway isnt wide enough to hold the camper and my other vehicles. With temperatures 25 degrees below normal it's not going to be any better by Thursday afternoon. I've been out there chopping ice..literally. Fighting for every inch I can get. Bleh. Talk about crazy. So...I'm happy to get the camper (been waiting since the end of December) but I'm still in disbelief that it's arriving to a messy messy situation. My consolation is that three months from now this will be a distant memory!

Let the dealer store it until snow melts more. You're too busy, got the flu, hurts your back.....you really appreciate their patience.

I agree. Have your dealer store it. I know our dealer has been very accommodating about keeping the RV a few days longer than planned because of things going on at our house, like having to get equipment into the back yard to replace the septic system. Ask! All he can say is no.

I have my camper in for service, got a call yesterday that it was ready for pick up. Problem is that the day before we got 4" of snow, which is in mid-melt now. Everything is a mess. To park the camper (in the yard next to garage) I have to back it up a slight hill. In the mud? Going to be a disaster. So I asked the dealer if I could leave it there a few days until the ground is dry or frozen (this crazy winter who knows which)
The answer was yes.
Ask. They might say yes.

Congratulations on the new trailer ! Is it being delivered from a distant whole sale kind of place ? If not then talking to your dealer is the best thing to do.

I hope it works out somehow ...

X2. Most dealers can be very understanding about unusual weather conditions. Unless they have alot of campers coming and need the space I think they'd accomodate your request for a later delivery. If they're a local dealer once the snow melts and your camper is delivered maybe stop by with a dozen donuts, bagels, or something to show your appreciation.

Any normal dealer should appreciate your situation. Not a big deal for them to keep the unit till things improve. After all, they have your business.

OkayÖ


My co-pilot is not happy with the state of affairs at the Inn either. Looking like an ice cold delivery (high temp of 15), a tight squeeze on the driveway as well as having to take time off of work, which she has very little of. She requested I make a call today. Yes, the trailer is coming from Ohio and RV Wholesalers is my dealer. So I gave a call right away this morning and had no luck getting thru. Left a message. Busy busy busy. Well about an hour ago I finally I got thru and I explained my predicament. I was immediately asked if I wanted to change my delivery date. Iím thinking for sure that the trailer had left Ohio. Nope. Still there. I accepted a new delivery date of next Saturday. If I donít take it next weekend I will have to wait another month beyond that. I called and informed the co-pilot and she was very happy. RVW called back and let me know of a slight adjustment due to misjudging drive times from the previous delivery in Connecticut. They want me to change from Saturday to Sunday and asked if thatís okay. I reminded them that its Easter Sunday and asked them if thatís okay with him. He yelled to the driver and he said fine. I told them that itís a go then for next Sunday but we might have to invite our driver to have Easter dinner with us. All in all a very good deal. Everyone is happy. It looks like temps should be over 40 for the walk thru and Iíve got 11 more days to clear some snow out! Yee haw!
