Our tour was for the Windjammers, then brett took us to the roo building for a quick tour since they were already done for day.

I'm at work right now, I have his number at home will pass it along later today.
Thanks for offering to share Brett's number

DPOWLI - We ordered ours on 4-14. The dealer actually had it on order before we made the decision and we were able to make some changes. It arrived on his lot 6-27. We picked it up on 6-30 and had one day to pack everything before heading to the mountains.

Build time depends partially on how many of your particular floor plan are ordered. They will build all of one floor plan both Rockwood and Flagstaff at the same time. When your unit is set for production your dealer should be able to provide you with the serial number.

What model are you getting?

Our Rockwood 8329SS was ordered on 7/19, and arrived at the dealer on 9/6 so 7 weeks to the day.

The big white sticker on the side shows 8-15-14 which I thought was the actual build date of the trailer, but I found a Lippert sticker on the tongue that says "Chassis MFG Date: 8-26-14.

I guess it depends on the model/factory. We custom ordered a Sabre fifth wheel on 7/8 and it was 7 weeks to the day we took possession. The shower leaks but we have it!

I toured the rockwood factors in august. They were making about 30 windjammers a day. Nice looking rigs. Enjoy when you get it.

dpowli - When I ordered my 2013 Windjammer 2809W in Dec 2012, the dealer could only give me an approximate build date after talking with the factory. Once the build-sheet/order-confirmation arrived back at the dealer, information started to flow. Here's a link to one of the messages in a thread where I talked about my order timeline and the documents and procedures up until I took delivery...

Process of ordering a rv from factory thru dealer

Perhaps some of the old thread info will still apply in your order process. -ray

Thanks RIp.
My dealer called yesterday. It seems Rockwood has decided to move the 2 smaller windjammers, one of which is our 2809W from their Signature Line to the Ultra Lite Line. This change stopped production for a while and also is resulting in some feature changes of the unit. The dealer is going to the factory today to eyeball the new 2809W with these changes and is going to call this evening. In looking at other units in the Ultra Lite line, it looks like if I get the emerald package we will still be able to get most of the features we were attracted to in the first place. Hopefully will know more by tonight.
