Order times on Rockwood signature ultra lite

I ordered an 8335BSS on 2/11/17, as of 3/27/17 the best time frame I can get is it will be in the "next run"

Any idea how long the Rockwood signatures or Flagstaff Classics are taking from order to delivery? I am assuming they are all built in the same plant.

Any idea how long between runs? I assume they would cycle through all the models built in the plant so it could be a long time.

how long after the order do you typically get a build date? This bothers me more then the TT not being here yet.

It really all depends on model order interest.

If they only have one or two orders for a certain model, they will be queued up in the waiting pool until additional units are added to the list and will fill larger (more quantities) orders for another model in the mean time.

We had a build date about 4-5 weeks after order.
It was built within a day of what they told us.

I suspect there is plenty of demand. two other local dealers have 7 on order, not counting at least one from my dealer.

5picker, at least on know they are slow with build dates as I am not too far behind yours. how far out was the build from the time they gave you the date?

When we ordered ours we were told 8 weeks.
At either 4 or 5 weeks we got a build date that indicated 4 more weeks.
In 4 weeks our 5th wheel was delivered.

Just out of interest, who provided you with your build date that indicated 4 more weeks? Dealer? Factory? Did you have to call? We ordered a mini lite 2506s and were told "running about 10 weeks", which would be May 15th - close to Memorial Day!!!

We contacted our dealer, who then told us he contacted the "factory rep".

I would love to know the same info. My sales guy just tells me he will call when it comes in. I don't think he makes any attempt to find out and I don't want to bug him.

I am at 7+ weeks and still no build date. The dealer claims they have called a few times and the best they got so far was about a week ago they said in the next run of course in the beginning of march they claimed it would be built in March.

it's a brand new model so not in stock anywhere local I have found

I applaud your good judgement. Eight to 10 weeks is 8 to 10 weeks.

1) Won't make it come any sooner.

2) Will just annoy him. You may need him on your side later!

There have been people on here who start calling at week 4 and call him every week!

I placed the order for my 2304DS on 1/11/17 and received notice of delivery to my dealer on 3/6. Picked it up on 3/15. Did a factory tour the next day and saw loads of new units coming off the UltraLite line.

Just received an update on our 8335 ordered mid February, now they say it will be built the 1st part of May. By the time it is shipped to the dealer, the check it out and schedule delivery I am beginning to think we maybe lucky if we can camp in June.

Starting to rethink this purchase.

I ordered my Mini Lite on 2/28/15, picked it up 6/6/15. So that's 14 weeks. (It actually arrived at the dealer a couple weeks earlier, so say 12 weeks, but I couldn't pick it up then.) It is what it is. If you wanted/needed a TT sooner, you have to buy off the lot.
