To be expected I guess but what's the upside to saying it's coming in and it's not?
Need to start over on our search.
Don't feel too bad. The same thing happened to us this past November. We had been looking at the Sanibel 3400 (and others, comparing) for almost 3 years. When we couldn't find one close enough to us with the decor we wanted. Soooooo, we broke down and ordered one. All the paperwork was submitted for a 3400, several e-mails exchanged titled "Sanibel 3400", phone calls made regarding pre-production "add ons" etc. Dealer gets a call a week before delivery telling them "oh, by the way, we're not making the 3400's and more, we're sending the new 3250." It only has a few minor changes but the basic layout is the same so, although not happy about not being informed sooner, we actually liked it better, settled on it and are very happy.
Seems that PT is changing, adding and deleting models in the past few months faster than in the past. It seems that everytime I check their web site, there is something new or something gone. That's probably a good thing. Instead of sitting on their laurels and pushing out the "same ole thing", they are constantly inovating and listening to PT owners and making changes that many owners and "lookers" would like to see.
I hope you find something else in the PT line up, we'd all love to welcome a new PT crewmember!
