Congrats! It should be to you before Christmas. Mine looks like 2nd or 3rd week of Jan for delivery.

Good luck with the new trailer! That looks like a great floor plan!

If the weather cooperates you'll probably get your wish! It all depends on the backlog at the haulers.

Mine is supposed to come offline "mid Dec". The regional sales rep for PT said 1st or 2nd week of Jan before delivery. I WAS hoping for before Christmas when I placed the order, but now I am just hoping for before Feb 1!! LOL

My 365RL came offline last week and is now at the dealer ( RVW in Ohio ) I talked with them today, and am going out there this Friday to do the walk through. After that they will deliver it to Florida. I'll meet it there on Nov.29.
I'll let you all know how the inspection goes. I know a lot of issues have been addressed by the factory, but I still have my concerns. Being it's going to Florida, I'm concerned about AC issues. We'll just have to wait and see, but I am really getting excited now.

For now I don't have a tow vehicle. I'll be snow birding in Florida this winter.
I Am retired and did not want to invest in a TV until I try the unit out for a few months. We have had park models in the past, so a 5th wheel is new to us.
If things go well I'll look into a TV next spring.

good to hear that you are in the build stage. We are still waiting to hear. Trying to keep our excitement in check so we don't burst with it before we even get to build week...

EARTH STATION... I see you tow your 320 with a GMC 2500HD diesel. Are you satisfied with the capability of that model. It seems when you compare like for like TV's, the GMC has the highest ratings. My 365RL weighs about another 1000 lbs than the 320, but the pin weight is a little less. Just wondered if 2500 would be a good choice for mine. Thanks.

There are several pulling 320's with a 2500HD. Some have installed airbags. I plan on putting in Timbrens. Not sure if Earth's is a 2011 or newer - the trucks were significantly improved structure and rear end that year.

I also tow a 2012 320 Crusader with my 05 2500 HD. GMC. Pulls great and handles the weight. I will say I'll be looking at the newest generation GMC 2014 model and will go to a 3500 HD SRW... not that much more for a little extra margin of capacity. OH, my Crusader has done very well with a few minor issues would buy another.

I pull my 320RS with a 2007 RAM 2500 6.7 CTD. I installed air bags with my previous fiver and I find they help keep the truck level and the headlights aimed. I would not go to any larger trailer with my 2500, though it handles my 320RS well. I wish I had a 3500 dually as I really liked the 356RL.
I am satisfied for the time being with my setup.

Congratulations! Are you going to Indiana to pick it up, or from a local dealer near your location?
