Our salesman said it would be about 8 to 10 weeks. I am planning on at least 12 weeks. 22 weeks seems like way too long to wait.

I do know it will be totally worth it once it comes in no matter how long it takes.



How long did any others wait for their special order?

That's what we were told, too. We added some things about 2 weeks ago and they charged us about 30% more than if we had ordered originally because "it's more complicated to add after the unit is in the middle of construction". We were told it will be back from painting this week. If that's really the case, we should be getting it real soon. Big if!!

If you order the full body paint you can add 4-5 weeks the delivery time. Once the coach comes off the line it is sent to the paint shop.

Oh cool - your changes must have caused the delay. Ours was back from paint a week ago.

Kev n JJ,



That's so predatory of your dealer. My dealer let me order anything additional we wanted while the unit was in production at the same discount as the original order. Redwood is happy to do whatever you ask and charges the dealer the same as long as it is possible. There is no "penalty pricing" based on "inconvenience" - except at your dealer.

I have to admit, our Dealer actually thought of some things to add after production started such as adding the 2nd heat pump, but the cost was the same discounted rate. No inflationary costs.

We added the tank heater pads. I saw the email from the RW rep with the price to the dealer, which is what we paid. THe
rep said if they had been ordered in the begining, they are easier to install and would have cost less. But they were not listed on the build sheet, so we didn't know until we saw thread about them on this forum. Still a lot better price then addidng them after the unit is delivered.

Our dealer applied the same discount we received in the beginning to the other items that were easily added later, as RW didn't charge extra. The tank heaters were the only thing we didn't catch early enough.

So NO - not the dealer being predatory. They've been super!! We even added some additional "non-standard" things that they charged us just the cost the RW charged them.
