We as a buyers can not pick up our trailers, liability is the reason. Of course your trailer has to be ready to ship. I hope this helps.

I would NOT go out of the norm for shipment of a unit . Anytime you try to step in, you potentially lessen any future claim.
Just wait it out. You may not care for their process, but this time of anxiety shall pass

Having the dealer go pickup the unit isn't out of the manufacturer's norm. It may be for this particular dealer, of course.

Yep.
Our dealer said at this point he is probably sending a driver or will go himself to pick up our trailer.....if it ever comes offline.

OP. We are on week 12 or 13 since order on our Sabre (feb 19th) and then delivery if it ever gets built. Hopefully you have better luck then us on time frame!!!

RV shows in Atlanta and Tampa were slammed with potential buyers. This is likely indicative of the fair pricing and reasonable trade in allowances combined with a somewhat improving economy. We had a Silverback ordered in mid Feb and produced 7 weeks later and we picked it up last week of April. We must have been fortunate to get the build order in just prior to an order surge. Only a couple of minor issues so far. For us, the 33rl is just right at this time.

With what they get paid for delivering these things vs. expenses..they're lucky any of them show up at the dealers. I think there's more money in delivering pizzas..

Its not that bad.
Its 1000 miles roughly from goshen to me, so at $1.69 a loaded mile thats $1690. Figure a 12mpg average for the 2000 mile round trip (of course bareback will be much better mpgs) thats about 166.6 gallons of deisel. At $4 a gallon thats about $666 for fuel. So still about $1,000 left, figure about $300 for maintenance, insurance and truck expense.
$700 bucks for 2 days hauling and a day back ish.... not great, but it aint terrible if u do it all the time.

I figured in a 365 day year, at 4 days a trip, so 89 loads a year at clearing $700 a load, that's $62,300 a year with another $26,700 for maintenance, insurance and vehicle.
Not too bad running the numbers like trucking outfits do. Key is pm fuel savings.
