Today, I actualy saw MY trailer, it has arrived at the dealer. I'll take delivery on May 19th. I was not able to go inside, they parked it between 2 other trailers with 6 inches clearance! Those 2 weeks are gonna take forever...

I know the feeling of not being able to wait two weeks...I get mine the middle of next week and I can hardly wait...plan to take it out in two weeks to test it out. Looking for any excuse to go someplace now...lol. Sherry

In my case, almost 2 month. The first month was not too bad, we still had some snow, it was cold and all the campgrounds in my area were closed. But now, many campgrounds opened this week end, it's nice outside and apart from all the flooding we have in the area, I can't wait to go camping. I pick my trailer up on a Thursday and we leave Friday night because for us the following Monday is a holiday. We haven't decided yet but so far it looks like a trip to Lake George NY.

Thanks Toaobigal! 8 weeks would be cutting it awfully close to the 4th of July weekend, which we already have reservations for...and presumably whoever would be buying our current camper would probably want to use it for their own holiday weekend as well. And we have two reservations between now and then too, not the end of the world to cancel or postpone, but still.

It might not be 8 weeks for you, I'm in Canada and these trailer are buitl in Indiana I think . My dealer only sends his truck to pick trailers when there is a full load and then everything has to go through customs so I guess it could be faster in your case since you're in the US. Another good news for me today: my PUP was on the dealer's lot (they are selling it for me) and they sold it today, I have to sign the papers tomorow and then bye bye PUP (I'll miss it) so one less thing to worry about.

I think I was a victim of Murpy's law: I should have waited to have the check in hand before posting about it! (next time I say it's sold, it will really be sold). On the brighter side, I received my Maxxair, for the bathroom vent, and I also have the tv set to go in the trailer and the Weber Q100 grill is on it's way. Good thing I have next Thursday off, I want everything to be ready to leave on Friday after work.
