I called the dealership today and left a message for the GM. No response, no phone call, nothing. I am starting to fume!!! I can handle a lot of things, but no call back is one that I cannot. This is the second time I have left a message with the GM and got no response. I believe it is time for drastic measures. The owner is next up.

Yes, that would do it for me also!! As I mentioned I called our dealer. But since then they have been very responsive. Are you able to go there, or are they too far away for a drop in? Nothing like a little eye to eye!! Let us know how it goes!

It's HERE! :-) We do our PDI tomorrow and hopefully (perferably), no issues and it will be delivered to our temporary RV spot next week! Needless to say, we're just a, "little" excited! Hope to see some of you out there on the road SOON! :-)

Congrats on taking delivery on your new RV! Get all the information you need during the PDI and ask lots of questions. Take notes and even pictures (or video) if necessary. Those smartphones can come in handy.

I would love to see pictures so feel free to post. Get a good night sleep and just have fun tomorrow. If you need us we will be right here.

Keep in mind, that the dealership really has no say in when the units come in either.

Working for a dealership, I know that things happen that many of you don't understand.

The factory builds them and sends them to a storgae yard. Then, a transport company is in charge of hauling them to the dealers that ordered them.

This could be a week, 3 weeks, whatever, until the drivers get the paperwork to haul that particular unit.

Also, right now, the factories are going into shutdown for a few weeks. This happens every tear, around the Holidays.

Now, if the dealer said your Columbus is on their lot for 2 weeks already, then you have something to complain about. If it's the factory that sais it is built, you are just in the hands of the transport company.

2008 wildcat, in most cases you would be correct, in my case, sadly enough, not. I finally got some answers. I spoke with the GM, and he said that the holdup is the dealer. They are changing to a new finance company and it is taking longer than they expected. They have not been able to pay for the TT's that they have on order. (for some reason they were in fear of telling me this). They have informed me that it will be another 10 days to 2 weeks. As I stated in one of my previous posts, I don't get too upset about most things, just do when I don't receive return phone calls. We now have an understanding, keep me in the loop and stay in touch, and if I call..........call me back!. So, looks like we will be waiting another couple of weeks. So be it, things happen for a reason. I just won't sleep for two weeks:

Thats not cool Sporoo! Well, maybe it will be your Christmas present!! Hope you have a bigggg stocking!
We did our PDI today,took about 4 hours total. Not many problems, all very minor.They are going to get it done and we will have it next week. The biggest pain was the wheel shirts will be replaced as when they where installed at the factory one of the screws on each side was over tightened and cracked the skirt. So they said no problem, new ones will be sent and we can have them put on at our leisure. The Service Manager Dustin was great! Really like him, a real get it done kinda guy. Our Dealership is RV SuperCenter in Temecula,CA.

WooHoo!!! As she does the Happy Dance~~~~~

ps- I will post pictures when we get it home!!

Yes, if that is the hold up, that is all on the dealer.....

Typically, we would never have that overlap of lenders. If you change, you usually are good for a certain amount of time, then the new lender kicks in...

We also get a Purchase Order when the unit hits the assembly floor, and gets a VIN number. Then, our lender gets the VIN and info, and pays for the unit. When it is built, it will automatically ship.

In any event, good luck with your purchase, I'm sure you'll love your Columbus.

We looked at several models of the Columbus yesterday and liked all of them. What brand television is that - it starts with a "H"?

My 320RS came with a 42" LED 1080 Samsung with a Panasonic 1000W surround sound, but they are now installing Hisense TV's. They have good reviews online that I have read.
