I'm sure they have been impacted by covid shortages during a high demand period for anything RV.
But it can be frustrating waiting patiently for the personal service they grew their business on and are most proud of
Not just RV parts and pieces.
My Son and I had lunch the other day and he told me how the shortages are hurting his supply chain badly. We've reached the point where all the items that once were on warehouse shelves have been sold and factories are struggling to replace them.
So many people have been staying home due to shutdowns, layoffs, or in some cases just closed doors, due to the Covid-19 crisis production of even simple things has been severely impacted.
His business is garage doors. He can't get Garage Door Operators (openers) from his regular supplier so he has been forced to go shopping at all the Big Box stores in the area so he has them for his new garage door installs.
Pretty much anything that is/was made in China has been impacted by the Chinese shutdowns implemented there to combat the spread of Covid in their country.
Be prepared to see even more as demand remains the same, even increases, and factories are still operating at a fraction of their previous capacities.
Did I mention prices? Expect them to go UP. When demand exceeds supply that is a given.
