We also ordered the 8289WS with Diamond Package the second week of January.

Checked last week with FR and was told that ours goes on to the production line the 1st of March.

Stacking up the goodies (Central Vac, LED Awning Lights, etc.) while we wait.

Congratulations!!!!!

Just curious, did you just call the factory direct. When I ask my dealer he just says I will get an email just before it goes into production.

I went through my dealer. Based on a comment about there not being a heat register in the bathroom, I had the dealer call the factory to confirm this, and also inquire if a register could be put in the bathroom. I also asked the dealer to attempt to find out the build date.

The next day the dealer called me back, after talking to the factory, and told me the RV would go on the production line on 1 March.

The factory also told the dealer that there was no heat register in the bathroom, but there is one in the bedroom just outside the bathroom door, that the door has a 2-1/2 gap at the bottom to permit heat to go into the bathroom, and that it was designed that way. The factory also told the dealer that they could move that register into the bathroom if I desired. Since the register is right outside the door, and that door is normally open (at least in our usage) I did not request that they move it.

I do not have a phone number for the factory, and that is probably by design, since they would spend more time on the phone than manufacturing RVs. LOL

That makes sense on the factory phone number, I couldnt find one anywhere.

I never noticed the lack of heat register in the bath, I did notice the a/c vent which for me in Texas works out.. We dont camp in cold weather, the Wife prefers Beaches and warm weather.

Not sure how the factory works, but might set up production for the 8289ws model that week for all orders. If so I might make my target date. My daughter is out of school the week of the 10th for spring break and hoping to travel to Ohio for pick up that week.

Let us know how the Central Vac install goes, would like to add one later also.

Let me say this, I have the same gap, also we do not close the bedroom door, their is a register in the floor as you walk up the steps to the bedroom, either one is enough to heat that bathroom. It is plain COLD in there, and I really do not like a whole lot of heat. We have to put a space heater outside the door blowing in when we take a shower. Also you will have a skylight above the shower which also creates alot of heat during the summer but that is bearable, no pund intended. I have lived with this for a year do not trust the salesman or the factory. I would not steer you wrong..
