    Re: Delivery Date

    You could certainly ask the dealer, call Grand Design's with your vin number, and most important do a complete pre-delivery inspection checking all of the slides, lights, appliances, and everything else to make sure they are operating properly.

    There are various reasons for delays but it doesn't mean you should necessarily be worried - just check.

    Thank You for you thought. If I provide the VIN to Grand Design, what do you think they might. I asked the Dealer why the delay. Their response was they have no idea why the delay.

    Re: Delivery Date

    I am not sure what the manufacturer can/will tell you when you contact them, but if you provide the vin then at least they should be able to check up on that unit and see what is going on. Sometimes it can just be a delay in receiving some of the items that go into your unit from other suppliers. (such as microwaves, refrigerators, etc.) This has happened to me while waiting on delivery of a truck that was ordered.

    It could certainly be possible with a fast growth company like Grand Design, waiting on another vendor to catch up.

    Good luck

    Re: Delivery Date

    Could be as simple as there were no drivers available at scheduled time of delivery.

    I wouldn't worry over it, there are a million reasons why these are off schedule...

    Thanks for trying to put me at ease. Just have concerns when the dealer said the unit was built they had the VIN and it was to be on their sales lot the day before I put a deposit down on it and it arrives 3 weeks late. I was thinking the worst. Still do not have a reason for the delay from Grand Design. We have an appointment today to have it delivered.

    Re: Delivery Date

    Well, I work at a RV dealership, and we usually have the VIN and build sheet several weeks before they actually show up.

    I have some Solitudes on order that were offline last week, but don't expect to see them until the end of this week at the earliest, most likely next week.

    It is good to hear from someone in the business to help relieve my concerns. We took delivery today of the first Reflection 293RES delivered to the state of Nevada. We are pleased to take ownership of it. Dealer was great and the walk through went very well. Spotted a few minor flaws that the dealer worked on right away.

    You will find that sometimes the company contracted to do the delivery will have one story, while the unit sits in the lot until they get a driver to take it.

    As we have a client that is an RV hotshotter, this is how it was explained to us. Many units sit in the transporters lot for weeks before they are delivered.

    I wouldn't be worried about the delay.

    I doubt that GD delivers their own units.
