Average time??

As an overly-excited newb I am getting pretty anxious about taking delivery of our new V-Lite. I guess my question is; how long did it take for YOUR TT to get built? I was told 6-8 weeks, not that I want them to rush, Iím just curious and trying to plan. Thanks for any input.

We ordered our Sabre the first week of November two years ago. We had it in our hands 2 days before Christmas. What a nice Christmas present!

To answer your first Q. they build several units per day! The time span is paperwork and shipping! Use your Wait Time working at a Second Job to help pay for all the Stuff for your new camper! Welcome to the FRF! Youroo!!

X eleventy!

Think about when you first got married, and all the stuff you needed for your new/first home.

Seriously, it's the same.

You need everything for that awesome V-Lite (we have one!) that you need in your home...linens, dishes, bathroom supplies (we use sample size shampoos, deodorant, etc.), cleaning supplies, etc.

I know we spent well over $500.00 just "supplying" our V-Lite. And doesn't even count the zero gravity outdoor chairs, our grill (we have never used the one that comes with your V-Lite), lego blocks, chocks, a better stinky slinky, our Winegard satellite dish (that was $700.00 alone), the honey wagon, etc.

It really *is* like having a "summer home".

Statements have been more true. we have spent $2491 since June on supplying our MH. doesn't take long to spend it, but I think we have everything we'll need now.
Good luck on your new purchase, please enjoy it.

Thanks for all the input. I have another question. Cords, hoses, fittings, all the stuff that comes with the trailer, is it junk? Should I start buying upgraded items like this.

They are OK, but you will need water hose, etc. that do not come with it. I have bought locking wheel chocks, additional leveling jacks for support(not to level, just to cut down on bounce as this is a lite construction and will have more give to floor), plus everything needed for towing a long TT.
Enjoy!
