Tracking new trailer build??

I have seen a couple of threads on here where people will make statments like "construction started today" or "the trailer is near completion". I have a new Rockwood on order (only been a week so far) but my dealer is telling me that they do not get updates from the factory on the "status" of the trailer. They just get notice once it is complete and they are ready for a PO to purchase it.

Is there a way to track the progress? I know I am just being a "new dad" type person and knowing that "they put the axles on today" will not make it go any faster....but.....just curious.

When I bought through RVW, they were told when the vin was assigned, which was probably 7-10 days prior to them being able to pickup. Back in Feb, mine was completed in 3 weeks.

When we ordered our new 2010 8306SS our dealer told us the samething, they had no way of tracking the order & the VIN would not be signed to the trailer until about a week or so before it ships.

It took 5-1/2 weeks to get our new unit.

We picked it up on July 1st and have had it out twice and it is a great unit. We came from a Jayco product so this is our first F.R. product.

Good luck with your trailer.

Thanks for the info!

Frigemaster - how do you like the layout? We looked at several FR trailers but chose this floor plan without being able to see one in person. Have you found any issues with the layout itself?

Thanks again!

Update - We have the VIN number and it is supposed to come off the line 8/11 (tomorrow)! Should hit the local lot within a week after that.

Can't wait!!!
