The dealer that is the closest to us has Flagstaff. But they do not have the particular model that we want to look at. We was in West Monroe last week and that dealer had Rockwood models. But again they did not have the model we wanted to look at. By the way we are looking for a small fifth wheel.

Carencro is about 3 hours from us, but we will wait until the Mississippi River/Morganza spilloff is stable before we head that way. Your dealer shows a lot of the models we want to look at. Are these actually on the lot?

Last time I was on the lot (end of march) they had quite a few fifth wheels...also, there is a flagstaff dealer, which is southern rv....but they don't carry the one I was looking for!!

I FINALLY have some news! I have a build date of May 19th. Then it has to go through quality control and then to transportation. My dealer told me that 1/3 of the delivery drivers have taken their trucks off the road due to the fuel prices. We scored a VERY sweet deal today on a used Dodge Ram 3500 today, so if push comes to shove we'll be making a road trip to Indiana to pick it up. Now I'll have to work until I'm 120 to pay for both of these things.....but at least I'll be happy!!!

Well finally got word on ours!! It's off-line now just waiting to ship!! But the shipping will take longer than usual because of the drivers taking their trucks off of the road.
. So I guess we are looking at 10 more days or so...hopefully it comes in in time for a test run before our scheduled Trip in the beginning of July!!!

That is SUCH great news!!! Yea!!! I suspect they make one model at a time. Glad they finally got to ours!! Our TT can be at our dealer in about 4-5 hours, so I'm hoping it gets to the dealer next week. Soooooo much to do before our 9 day trip starting June 18th.

When I went to the dealer,(the last week in march) it was already on order ... So I don't know the actual order date!! But it should be about 10 or 11 weeks!! I am SOOOOO ready for it to be here!
