I'm starting to think we may not have our trailer by then or will be cutting it real close. I only know the offline date because I called the factory. I haven't heard anything from RV Direct who we purchased from. Thanks!
I am buying mine groom RV direct in Albany and they are very good at sharing information as long as I call and ask them for it.

We ordered February 25th and were told this week it's scheduled to come off the line May 1st. Our dealer already had us schedule our walk through for May 10th based on how long her deliveries have been taking. She is in no way 100% sure it will be there by then, but we are keeping our fingers crossed. She originally told us it would be in the week of April 16th so we booked a trip Mother's Day weekend. We are just praying we get it before then.

I'm in the same position as you with the same response from my dealer. My 2306 came off the line on the 9th and we are still waiting. I called FR and they said it has been dispatched but all of the transport companies are working to the max. I was told this is the busiest time for the transports and they have a 2-3 week backlog. Well it's now April 27th and we will be past the 3 weeks. I am curious how they choose which trailers to transport. It doesn't sound like a first in, first out type of a system. We live in Ohio so you wouldn't think it was that difficult to get it to us but I am getting very frustrated at this point.

I'm thinking maybe some drivers pick certain areas they like to deliver to so those get done first...who knows though...

At the Milwaukee camping show in February I ran into an old colleague of mine who is retired. He is a driver now and essentially says it is up to him to pick and choose his jobs. The local dealerships have his number, they call and agree on a price ( a lot depends on the price of gas) and away he goes.

He'll tow all types. I've seen his one-ton dually towing 40 foot toyhaulers and 17 ft hybrids. He enjoys it.

I'm certain there are larger companies with contract drivers, but I get the impression that many dealerships use this type of individual.
