Welcome to the FR Forums!

Congrats on your new RV! From what have been posted here on the site it only takes about a day to build once it gets on the line. Most of the time period is waiting for the production of the RV type.

Take care,

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

As Terier said. One day to build. The holdup is that it's still the busy season. Also, factories tend to build one model at a time. Last, they need to deliver it to the dealer (usually) and sometimes there are driver shortages.

Our trailer took about 9 weeks last year. 8-10 weeks is common, although some can wait longer while a few lucky souls get theirs sooner. Good luck to you.
