My PDI is today, and what a mess it has been. Thursday was told camper would be delivered from sister dealership up to me Friday. No contact friday, emailed again and sales guy said maybe Monday PDI and hitch install. No contact Monday. Then emailed and called and asked sales guy what time on Tuesday we can grab it, he tells me 3:00. I say no can do, supposed to be driving into campground at that time. He says it's the best he can do because they "are so busy".... Something's not right, so I call the originating sister dealer, to ask if they still had it with them. Indeed, it had not left their lot yet. Called my sales guy he says he has it in his lot and we are good to go for Tuesday at 3:00. I tell him, "you have one more chance to tell me where the camper is"... Ah alas, strike three, tells me they have it. I inform him that the sister dealership actually has it. He scrambles and says he'll call me back. Calls me back and hour later and tells me that it had not been teas feted, he was told it was, but the GM who transports them up to my state was sick Monday. Really...? Really...?

I am schedule to "begin" the walkthrough process at 1:00 and hope to be on the road with enough time for backing in daylight at a campground two hours away.

Roo I hope everything went awesome for you once you set your eyes on it!

Oh man Hazmat...that all sounds so familiar. Why is it so hard in this industry to just be honest? Like I have said a million times, I will deal with whatever curve balls thrown my way....just don't add lies on top of lies and make it all much worse.

Edit -just got an email after posting this...it came in late last night.

Good luck on your walkthrough...will be anxious to hear how it went!

Never understood the PDI cost. I bought 2 new campers a 2011 Rockwood Popup and a 2015 Roo. Never a PDI fee. Have to pay to make sure everything works?

Thursday delivery scheduled. It isn't the version of Metropolitan fabric I was hoping for but no biggie, at this point I wouldn't care if it was pink. At least there is visual evidence there is in fact a camper in their possession, lol.

Appreciate all the support throughout and the continued fingers crossed. It has meant a lot to have this thread to compare notes.

Hoping everything goes smoothly RooVader. Glad it finally looks like you are getting your Roo.

We are still being patient.

I don't understand why people plan for a camping trip with a TT they don't even have yet, and have no real confidence will show up in time.

While it's not excuse for lying to you, the dealers are essentially at the mercy of the factory and the transporters. The dealer has little control. Once it's on his lot, it's in his interest to get to you ASAP and collect his check.

I'm not planning squat until the trailers sitting in my driveway. I've been waiting 11 weeks at this point, and while I'm not jumping for joy, I AM "angst-free."
