    GD suspending production on some units

    As of this morning, I was notified that the Momentum 328G, 353G and 393G will not be built until further notice.

    These join the Imagine XLS 15FLE and the 24MPR that were suspended about 2 weeks ago.

    They are trying to meet production demands by thinning the available models that are "underachievers". May be back, may not.

    I've said it many times before.......it's going to get worse before it gets better.

    Yup. Glad we got our 2400bh when we did

    Was not going to wait till spring

    Mind you I will admit I have thought of advertising it for sale. I think I could make some money especially in my area

    Steve - is this all related to parts/components/chip/etc. shortages or are there other things like team staffing shortages and/or other current and projected challenges ?

    And, projected all through 2021 and possibly beyond ?

    It is mainly because there is such a high demand for retail sold units right now, they are suspending the production of lower producing models to accommodate the better models.

    I just ordered a retail Momentum for a customer this morning. I am being told it will be July or August until I see it. (No full body paint). Add a month for that...

    I'm actually considering that myself. It's so busy here this year, I don't know when I will get to use it.

    I think it's hitting all vehicle types. Super Duty inventory is getting crazy hard to find.
    I put a deposit on a 2021 Honda Trail 125 last August and still don't have it! Major Honda dealer in the area and he has only gotten in one so far and mine will be his second one. Finally got a notice that it will be here end of June, 11 months later!!

    Most of the dealers in middle Tennessee have a supply of the 2021 Honda Trail 125's on the floor. Texas weather could be the reason for the shortage there.

    Really??! That's crazy! You can't find one anywhere in South Texas to even look at, it was the same way with the Monkee a couple of years ago but know they're everywhere. Oh well, I've waited this long lol. Plan to put receiver hitch on front of the truck and carry it there when I get it. Sorry for the hijack OP.

    Time to add more models to that list.....

    Found out today that Imagine 3110BHS, 2610MLS, and 2250RK are done.

    Reflection 310RLS is done.

    Not sure what else until I have a conference call on Monday.

    Probably so they can build more 2500RL and 2600RB models!! Those are flying off the shelf here in Portland, OR. I'm not in a big hurry for mine so I plan to wait until this summer to order my 2500RL.
    Cheers!
