Ordering a new unit

Hi There I am new here, and I have 2 questions 1 are the Rockwood and Flagstaff the same unit just different interior colors? 2 Has anyone ordered and new unit from your dealer and if so how long did it take? I am looking at the Rockwood 8314BSS Comp to the Flagstaff 831RLBSS.
I Live in MN and we do not have but 1 flagstaff dealer and 2 rockwood dealers.
Any help would be great.

Thanks
Tom KT0Y

Yes, it is my understanding that the Flagstaff and Rockwood are identical, built together and then painted one way for Rockwood and the other if it is to go to a Flagstaff dealer. I guess they can flood the market better that way. As far as how long, your looking at about 8 - 10 weeks. Your dealer may tell you less time in order to make the sale, but it won't get there any quicker than that unless you wait for the off season. When we ordered ours, we were told it would take about 4-1/2 weeks. But after reading up on the forums, others were saying that it will be closer to 8 - 10. Well the last status we got was that it "may" hit the end of the production line this Monday, but there is also a shortage of drivers to deliver them to the dealers once they are completed. As of this coming Saturday, it will be 8 weeks. We are not looking for it though until the following week at the soonest. That will put it around 9 weeks, which is exactly what we were told in the forums.

Good Luck!

I ordered my Rockwood late summer 2009 & was told 4-6 weeks. I received it in 5 weeks.

Yea that would make sense if you ordered it in the late summer or fall. Spring time is when the rush is on and everyone is thinking about camping. How do you like your Rockwood?

Rockwoods and Flagstaffs are the same other than exterior graphics, interior fabric colors, and model numbers. This allows FR to place the same trailer in the same market while giving dealers "exclusive" rights to one or the other. If you are in an area that has dealers for both, you may be able to work out a better deal by playing one against another.

When ordering, you might get lucky as we did. We ordered our 26RKS and was told at the time it would be 5 - 7 weeks. We got a call later in the day from the dealer. FR had one exactly like the one we ordered coming off the line that week and was not assigned to anyone so we claimed it. We got it within two weeks. Rare but possible so have your dealer check those things.

Check out RV wholesalers.com website, you can save thousands by going this route, but you have to go to Indiana to pick up your unit when completed, or arrange to ship it for an additional cost. Also, be aware that your dealer won't be quite as willing to do warranty and other repair work on a camper not purchased from them, at least not as quickly as others that are his customers. Randy

Think of Rockwood/Flagstaff in a similar vein as Ford/Mercury or Chevy/GMC... damn near identical vehicles built under two names by the same manufacturer.

When we picked up our new TT a couple weeks ago our dealer told us the folks that were ordering now were being told there was a 10-12 week lead time on new orders.

Ordered it yesterday, Salesman said it would be about 8 weeks or maybe sooner... Sooner would be great but I am thinking on 10 weeks.
