Busy time of year for RV manufacturers. Hope your wait time goes quickly.

It actually only takes them about a day to build one but the pipeline (order to delivery) takes all the time.

It took me about 6 weeks to get my 310BHDS from initial order to its arrival at the dealer.

If you don’t have it already, use this time to start buying essentials such as sewer hoses, drinking water hoses, power cords, leveling blocks, wheel chocks etc etc.

Hope the wait time goes by fast for you. We recently purchased a 2016 257BHS and the family loves it! Have already taken it out on four trips. Happy Camping!

I was told should be here around mid June. I hope so can't wait to take it out with the family. Nordsmen how does it tow? We had a jayco hybrid and wasn't a big fan. With this tt we got the blue ox hitch

My tow vehicle is a 2015 F150 4X2 3.5L Eco 3.55 Axle Ratio. Using a WDH, sway bars, proper tire inflation, the trailer has towed very well. Personally, it took the first couple of trips to get used to towing it as we upgraded to this from a 1500 pound pop up camper, but each trip builds more confidence. Backing this thing up into a spot is still a work in progress.

Do not haul it off the lot until you've gone ever every square inch. Make them demonstrate each system to prove they work. Bring a dvd to test the player.
