The Puma 257RESS is a difficult model to find. Although I do not own one, I too really like the floorplan and stick-n-tin construction. I inquired about the availability of the model at my local Puma dealer (Lexington, NC). He said he same thing, about 6 to 8 weeks. He quoted a price of just under $24k. One model that has a similar floorplan is the Starcraft Autumn Ridge Outfitter 275RKS, also stick-n-tin. And, if you want to go laminated, there are several brands, that have almost the identical floorplan as the 257RESS, such as Keystone Cougar HT, KZ Sportsman, Winnebago, Keystone Hideout and Cherokee Arctic Wolf. Good luck.
