Ordered a 2013 34 SK today.
I did not order the G 614 Tires. After much tire research I decided the best course for me was to take delivery with the Marathon tire. I will then take those off and replace them with Michlein XPS RIB LT235 85 16E's. Most of the articles I've read and tire guys I've talked to say that this is an excellent 10 ply tire with steel belted sidewalls ( should take care of any worries about sidewall bulging). This tire also runs at 80psi which means it will work with the stock wheels. I plan to sell the Marathon's for $100 ea so my changeover cost will be $700 to $800. Much better choice for me over the $2450 upgrade price for the G614's. Michlein has always been my first choice after OEM's wear out on all my vehicles and I have never had a problem. If I have any problems with this set-up I'll let you know. My projected delivery date is 5/1/12, so I will not be participating in any "Woody" rallies until after that date. For the Western Chapter maybe we should give some thought to a fall "Woody" at Lake Tahoe. Beautiful Lake and great Casinos BTW EXCELLENT TIRE ARTICLE .http://www.thisoldcampsite.com/This_...e_Article.html

I was going to do the same thing with the michelins but after adding up all of the numbers for my FL I decided on the G's I run michelins on everything myself.

I don't know about units rolling off the line today, but units ordered now will be 2013, since I ordered mine with almost all the options including FBP, I was told by the dealer it would be a 2013 and that's what my signed build sheet says.

We ordered on 2-21-12 with all the options including fbp. two weeks after the order we got our delivery date of 4-30-12. if you ordered on 3-24-12 with delivery 5-1-12,they must have have picked up a lot more carriage workers, to get all this unit done faster.

LP, I haven't been given an official delivery date. The salesman told me it would be 6-8 weeks, I just took the 8 week time frame, but based on your delivery dates it looks like 9-10 weeks will be more realistic. I ordered from Zach Shaw, Corey's brother. Thanks again for steering me that way. Saved me big $$.

If you get XPS RIBS don't forget the steel valve stems!
