What Happens Next??

We ordered a Rockwood Roo 19 on February 10. We were told 8-10 weeks. This past weekend our sales rep informed us the VIN has been assigned and he should get a confirmation tomorrow (Tuesday). We were given an offline date of April 30. So my question is-how much longer now!!?? The wait is killing me-I want my new toy!! Can anyone give me a general idea of what to expect next? THANKS!!

Its not uncommon for them to be a week early or a week late from what I have seen . It is the busy time of the year ! Good things come to those who wait !
good luck !

Our 233S came off line on April 10th. It shipped on April 12th and should be here sometime in the next week. When I talked to Forest River because our dealer was being less than helpful they said that with their back up and other camper manufacturers in the same position transit has been an issue and it is taking 2-3 weeks to get the unit to the end destination.

Melbornj and I got the same response. Our windjammer 3006wk is coming offline first week in May. Probably won't have it until last week in May if the Lord is willing and the creeks don't rise.

Ours was set to come off that day when I called RV direct about it they told me they had a unit on the lot that I could look at and see if I wanted it (same unit different colors inside) 45 minutes later I was in the lot being told that between the time I talked to them and the time I got there they sold it. They have another unit on the way with a third color inside that they put my name on so I can have it by Memorial day. Coming offline may 10th then 2-3 weeks to get to the dealer then 2 weeks for them to prep it and get it to me put me in my new camper sometime in June when I ordered it the beginning of February. I was not a happy camper. Pun completely intended

I Don't understand I thought you said it was off line on April 10 and would take 2-3 week to ship that sounds like you will get it in time?Unless I miss understood you.

Albany RV had ordered a unit for their lot before they ordered mine. It has a different interior color but I am going to take that one because the one I originally ordered will not be here in time.

I was under the impression that customer special orders were supposed to take top priority over regular retail sales? It seems to me that FR should be pushing out the special orders first. No wonder everyone is waiting for their units to be delivered!

Our dealer said 6-8 weeks on our Sabre special order. Came in to the dealer last Monday, 7 weeks to the day we ordered it. PDI was last Thursday. Everything looked great so we took delivery same day. Hopefully the transporters will catch up and get your units to your dealers real soon.
