There are a bunch of the progress as it was being painted in the factory tour thread starting on page 5 then completed ones on page 6. I'll have much better ones once I pick her up.

PS: If you go back a few pages you can actually see my rig being built with pictures from the line.

Ordered mine on 3/14/14 and it took 17 weeks, picked up on 7/20/14. Way longer than I was told it would take, so be prepared...

Ordered my 29HFS right after the first of the year, it arrived at the dealer March 12, although I can't pick it up for another couple of weeks. My dealer told me it would be about 10 weeks when I ordered it and he was spot on.

I think time of year has a LOT to do with it. Right now is peak order/build season. Spring is coming and the RV shows have been generating orders for a couple of months.

Thumbs up

Play Harder,
Congrats... Don't forget pictures and write ups on your travels back home.

My local dealer called FR for an estimate on my build (ordered on 3/2). 4/20 is supposed to be day it rolls off the line. We will see if this holds true....

Hi all I am new here so just want to say Hi and looking forward to trading good tips here. I ordered my xlr 29hfs in October 2015 and was supposed to have it in 6 weeks, but got delayed a few weeks due to a shortage on materials. I picked up the week before Christmas.
