Doesn't sound right to me. I'm pretty sure I remember getting a serial number and build date about two weeks after the order was placed.

I agree with John. If I recall correctly, it took about 2 weeks to get some info when we ordered ours. However that was a few years ago and it wasn't during the Christmas / New Year holidys.

You did pick a nice unit. My son's inlaws have the 29' Outlook and love it.

Let me also add a big welcome to the forum.

Hang in there ClrCrkRider.I ordered a Voyage 32H on 13 Nov '07,and I'm waiting on my number too.I think that the plant shut down for two weeks over the holidays.I have called my salesman about every two or three weeks to bug him,I made some additions to the option list,and still no number as of today.
I feel your PAIN! Lets just hope that we are not in a "A Great Depression' when we get our coaches.

They shut things down heavily in mid-December, not sure when they get back to production. Dealer should be able press for information.

Welcome to the forum and to Winnebago ownership!

Took 3 months for my factory order and that is what my dealer told me. Oct. 25th order to Jan 25th pickup. I had full body paint and that adds ~ a week.

I called the factory early in Jan. and they told me where my coach was in the build process and gave me a ship date.

I hope it doesn't take 3 months..... that would be so painful.

So I got my ship date and VIN number today! Finally. The ship date is 2/12. It will be shipped to my dealer in Los Angeles.

Anyone know how long it takes to get to Los Angels?

How about the Dealer PDI? How long doest that take.

I am just trying to figure this all out because I have to coordinate a bunch of things around this and even having ball park time frames helps a lot.

Thanks for the help.

I believe our coach ahd almost 1700 miles when delivered to LA. One suggestion, since your delivery is in winter, as soon as it hits the dealer call and have them pressure wash the chassis to clean off any road salt. I've seen pictures on this forum of rust issues and the owner tracked the route through snow country where salt was used on the roads. Once you get it home pressure wash yourself, because you'll never know if the dealer will truly washed it for you. Congratulations and enjoy the new motorhome.

I placed my order on December 13 and received the VIN and other information (except delivery date) about 2 weeks later. I guess I should call the factory since my dealer is saying we are good to go for an early February delivery... but I really MUST have it by February 21 or very close since I've already reserved and paid for a vacation at Disney and a couple other campgrounds in Florida starting in late February.
