I ordered jan 4th it was built last week feb 24th and is waiting at the factory for the day and night shades we wanted. The entire time they have promised 8 weeks and if it wasn't for the wife wanting the 2013 shades vs the 2014 it would be at the dealer today.

From what we were told on model year

Change to next year aug- sept time frame, updates mid model year April build dates.

I have attached a copy of the email from the factory rep, he has answered all my questions in less then 24 hours.Click image for larger version

Build time - chassis inline to off line will be about 10 hrs. Yep they do from 8-12 a day, just depends on what model is being built. Putting a surge supp in will not void your warranty at least that's what the factory told me last yr. about 2 days for FL delivery 1200 mi. Auto level is very good and some type of pad is a good idea. Either 12x12 pad blocks homemade to height or bought plastic pads which are OK but can slip in the right (or wrong) circumstances. I used Stall Mats from tractor supply to make mine. 3/4" thick and you can get 24 squares from one mat at $40 just stack to required height.

My Columbus 320RS was ordered back on Jan 18 and it supposedly just came off line but they are 2-3 weeks behind in deliveries from the factory to the dealers because of weather... Ugh!!

We ordered our 320 the first week of January, and we just found out we are scheduled to pick it up at our dealer next Tuesday the 25th of March. Pretty quick order process/build/delivery time line in our opinion. In fact as excited as we are, considering the weather here in northern Ohio, we could have waited a little longer. Pick up day will be 37* and possible snow showers, (wish it was sunny and 70*)

That's a good question. We ordered our Rockwood 8327ss February 20th with the dealer saying it'll be 10 to 12 weeks. We went to the Flint camper show last weekend and the Rockwood factory rep said more like 6 to 8 weeks if ordered Feb. 20.

I REEEEAAALLLY want to believe the factory rep!! LOL!
