Factory Vacation & Restart

Hi "Bullet Bob" and anyone else who may know:

We are new, just ordered a 417amp, heard the factory is shut down for annual 2-week vacation.

Is it true all existing orders were filled before shutting down?
Is it true once line restarts minor design changes take place?
With the fresh start, do you have a ballpark guess how long the build and delivery will take?

Hear waiting is the hardest part. Thank you for your input.

Bob is busy, so I will answer for him...Not all of the orders received had been scheduled or built before shut down. We do not come back from shut down and build a changed product. Changes are always in the works, but not immediately after shut down. If you were given a timeline, that doesn't change, except you should probably add a week to it, as we were down a week. Right now we are at about 6-7 weeks out, if that helps

Just curious...when and where did you order this unit? If it was just recently, then the shut down might not affect you at all.

We signed the order papers on Friday (7/10) with RV Wholesalers. We ordered the 417amp and had a 2nd "mass clearance dinette" installed in the back with 3-season patio doors.

Should be easy to recognize. We were fascinated with the updates you guys were providing to the gentleman who applied a black custom paint job to his trailer. Very exciting to follow a build down the line. Wish we could get up there and see the build.

Just fantastic!!

That is so cool.....it's like knowing your kid is in good hands. I've told everyone in the extended family about my new FR friend on the inside. LOL

The smallest things just baffle me. Haha
