Yes, we had to cancel our trip scheduled for next weekend, (Victoria Day Weekend 20-23) as the trailer is sitting at FR waiting to get here.
We hope pick-up will go as planned for May 28, 'cuz we have a weekend planned for June 10-13 =]
I will call the dealer on Monday and see what is happening.
The sad part is, as I live in Windsor, the trailer will have to go right through here when it comes off the Ambassador Bridge (Detroit), on it's way to Toronto where we then have to drive to pick it up..............if it wasn't for the dang pdi...they could deliver it on our driveway :-O
I would never go pick it up.........O-em-G....the way you Americans drive over there.....no way.........

Wondering if our dealer will go pick up ours. I'm going to e-mail him on Monday and ask him if it is done and just sitting on a lot somewhere? If it is, then I'm going to cll FR and find out why they aren't paying their drivers more to deliver and what our options are. How many people are they going to disappoint? I have an 8-day tip planned in mid-June and it needs to bw delivered to our dealer for our pdi, then we need to get it home, load it up, go for our shakedown, etc., before then. I'm a nervous Nellie, I guess.

Finally got a VIN# from our dealer today, but we still don't have an offline date yet. May 17th will make 7 weeks since our order went in. Emailed the dealer to see if they are going to send someone up to get our trailer if it should be ready soon and nobody is willing to bring it down to the dealer. We'll see what they say. We've already canceled our Memorial Day trip, and hope we don't have to start canceling our June trips too.

UPDATE: Quick email response from our dealer (gotta love a fast response). I had mentioned the stories of trailers just sitting there waiting to be picked up and delivered because nobody was delivering due to the gas prices. Here is the response to my email:
"We have a company that is going to get them because of that very reason. Once it is offline, it is about a week at the most. That company is bringing us 5 so far this month so we didn’t have to wait."

We ordered a XLR the third week in May and I just got the VIN number as well as an off line date of 5/20 from my RVW salesperson. My plans are to pick it up during the first three days in June if it is ready by then. I'll update this when we get a firm pick up date committment from the dealer.
