Or how their process went with their newly ordered TT.
Seriously dude, you need to take a deep breath and relax! You ordered your TT 24 days ago. Twenty-four days. We ordered ours last year on March 9th. Our dealer told us 8 to 10 weeks for delivery, since we ordered when EVERYONE else in the country is ordering. At 8 weeks, I e-mailed him and asked if he had heard anything. He said he didn't even have an online date yet and said I'd be the first to know when he did. There was no contact from FR during this period; it was all handled by our dealer.
At 10 weeks and 1 day (on a Thursday) our dealer called and said our TT was being built on that very day! I received the VIN number on Friday afternoon. He said it should be out of quality control on Friday (it was!) and should be delivered that afternoon to the dealership (we only live 250 miles from the factory.). It arrived at 3pm on Friday afternoon and by noon on Saturday, we were driving it off the lot after our PDI. Friday was the mad dash for us - make sure we had insurance on the TT and the new to us TV, go to the credit union to pick up the check for the TT and go to the dealership to pick up the Ram. I don't think I slept much on Friday night, I was so excited!!
The key to all of this is to relax....your TT will get built, and it will get delivered. Our credit union managed to get everything settled with the financing, etc. with getting the VIN number about four hours before we picked up the check. And our insurance agent was able to get everything put together in very short order as well.
I know you're excited, just as we were, but it's only been 24 days. We had to wait a total of 73 days, which, now that I think about it, really wasn't that long after all.
I hope your TT is everything you hoped for. Happy camping!
