Windjammer Build Time

Does anyone have an idea of how much time it takes to build a Rockwood Windjammer 3008W? I'm wanting to know how much time it takes from the time the chassis is rolled in to the time the completed camper rolls out the other end. Mine is supposed to go into production the first week of September. I ordered it on August 1st.

Yes: Longer than you want it to...
So sorry, I couldn't help myself. It is really hard to wait for something good when you just can't stand to wait! We were in a similar situation in that we bought the showroom model which wouldn't get changed out for almost 3 weeks from the day we signed the papers. Still, we could (and did) go visit it once or twice. Hope yours will be as problem-free as ours!

Well depending when the order gets to the production line it will take about 3 hrs to build. Scary huh. But that is how they run these through the line. We watched them build some Rockwoods when we where at the Rally and they are quick. Hope it's built well as are V-lite is built in the same factory as the windjammer. Later RJD

There's something about the Windjammers -- they're all built well.

X2 - and that seems to be the common theme on the forum from WJ owners. Built well, good options and amenities, pull very well. Mine is a little tongue heavy, but that was resolved with an Equalizer 1400# hitch, instead of the Trekker 1000# that the dealer installed.

We stopped at factory to look at a windjammer model we were interested in. There were about 100 windjammers and v lites there. Looked like delivery to a dealer could take extra time..

Wow. 3 hours?
Had no idea.
We have sure been happy with our V-Lite.

P.S. Ours took about 45 days from order to Idaho dealer.

Love our Windjammer. Haven't been out as much as we would like but, it is a great trailer.
Hope it doesn't take to long.
Have fun.

We ordered ours and it took 5-6 weeks early in the season. Delivered in May. Have had minor issues corrected. Overall we like it

Just a little FYI. My dealer said it will take 3 days to build my Windjammer. In regards to delivery. It is scheduled to be offline on September 21st. The offline day is the day it is scheduled to be finished then it goes to transport. Being it is a retail sold unit and my name is on it they mark it "HOT" meaning bring to dealer immediately. Thanks.
