Any newly delivered Roo's on the East Coast

I was just informed by Forest River that our Roo is due to be offline on April 27. However, he also said there is a 2 1/2 week backlog on delivery. Does that mean 2 1/2 weeks until it ships-or until we get it? Has anyone had a camper come offline recently and how long was the wait to get it? Thanks for any info!!

Sounds to me like a driver shortage. The trailers are towed from the factory to your dealer by owner-operators (regular guys with one-ton trucks). They get very busy right now. Same thing happened last year.

My dealer said they would drive down themselves if it was too delayed.

Hopefully others can share their experiences.

I simply called the number on the back of the Rockwood Brochure. Both times I was able to speak to Brent-whose name I have seen on these posts many times. He is SO helpful. He gave me all my information. Are you also waiting for delivery??

We ordered a 2013 Wildcat Sterling 32RK Monday. I had hoped there would be a way to track the progress, so I will look at our Wildcat brochure, call the number and see who I get!! Thanks for the info and I hope you get your trailer very soon!!

I'm pretty sure It will be all of 8 to 10 weeks if you ordered a new one Monday I ordered one 2 /25 and I'm still waiting sorry for the bad news .And if there is a driver shortage it may take longer. Also this is the busy time of the year so again it may be even longer. Don't feel to bad every body goes through it and its no fun.

Where do you live? Our 233S came off line on 4/10 and all I can get from my dealer is it should be here soon. I'm just trying to get a feel for how long it is taking to get to my area.

I live in north central Illinois. My dealer, House of Camping, is in Bridgeview, IL. Google shows them being 2.25 hours from the factory...

Those who are waiting, could you post back here with when you get your trailers please? I'm getting a little nervous reading this. Our 2306 is scheduled to come offline tomorrow and then it goes to Quality for a few days. We have reservations for Memorial Day weekend. 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!
