Delivery time

I hate asking this and I know it has been discussed but I can't find an answer anywhere.

What kind of delivery times is everyone else getting on the Columbus (385BH)? My dealer says 4 weeks but I find that very hard to believe. We are planning our trips and need to plan accordingly depending on which rig we have.

If your dealer had one on order and we were able to match up the equip. Then 4 weeks could be realistic.

He ordered on the 10th. I figured 8 weeks would be more like it.

Put your camping trip------------

Put your camping trip on hold, your dealer is just one of many dealers throughout the states. When your dealer calls you with the VIN number of your RV, then make your camping plans. From the time you get the VIN number, you have about one to two weeks!! The factory usually notifies the dealer with the VIN number when your RV is started to be built.

We ordered our flagstaff on may 22, came offline on June 29, will be picking it up this Friday. If your dealer is sending a driver to pick it up 4-6 weeks may be realistic. If not then 6-8weeks may be more like it. We were told the delivery drivers were about 2 weeks out. I think ours was deliver before that but due to our schedule we have waited a little longer to pick it up. Ask your dealer to find out an offline date and if he picks up his own trailers. That may give you some planning ideas.

Just got a call from my dealer. Said they should have my 385 BH by the beginning of next week. About a 5 week delivery from date of order. They also said this will be the first one that they put a 42" Smart TV in the living room. Supposed to have Netflix, weather, HULU, etc. Of course you would need WiFi to use it all but will be interesting to see.

In week four of waiting for our 385. Dealer was able to modify an order they already had placed with Forest River. Hopefully that means it won't be much longer! This waiting is killing me!

They said it was supposed to be here yesterday but the manufacturer sent the wrong one. If we can't pick it up this week it's going to be another month before we can.

Hopefully they can get the right one to you quickly. Waiting another month would drive me crazy!

Ours came in this morning. Hopefully the AC problems are fixed. My salesman told the the last 4 Columbus units he sold had to have AC replaced.

I was hoping that all the a/c problems would be fixed by the time ours went into production as well. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Mine was ordered on 7/10. Delivered to dealer today and PDI on Friday (8/17) so 4-6 weeks is about right.
