Order timeline - new CCD

Does anyone know the days for delivery on a new CCD? My local dealer reports 6 - 8 weeks and improving. True? False?

Actually, I think that that figure is fairly conservitive given the order load going on now. My guess is 8-10 unless they have gotten through the bulk of the orders from that RV show they were at that they got tons of orders from....

Best to call or email the factory if you have any indication the dealer might be guesstimating.

I was told by an Airstream rep at the local RV show, that there is a industry wide shortage of RV stoves. Apparently there are 2 companies in the US producing components and one recently shut down to relocate. The supply has not kept up with demand and according to the rep. Airstream has completed trailers sitting on the lot outside the plant, waiting for stoves.

Trailer production is 30 units a week at this time. But if you have no stove, it sits on the lot.

Hey, I got my stove and it has a corian cover. Awesome Classic! Mine started and ended the production line on time and with a stove. Maybe I was lucky as my unit had a guardian angel at the factory following it through the line with a camera. I doubt this unit was going to experience any delay problems under his eye. It certainly hasn't ANY quality problems. After four days of shakedown, not one quality problem. Not a one. Nada. The factory's in a grove right now so order one NOW!

I just ordered a 30' foot Classic last week and was told it is scheduled for the end of April. I was left with the impression that other models are scheduled farther out than that.

We ordered our CCD last week and were told roughly 2 1/2 - 3 months! They are really busy at Jackson Center.

When we went to pickup our Safari in December, we took the factory tour. There they told us that we were lucky we ordered ours when we did, as anyone that placed an order after I believe the last day of October, was most likely going to be close to getting an '05 that were that backlogged with orders.

I think they start to trickle out between late April and mid May depending on a few factors (materials, training, etc).....

Local NM dealer just called AS and was told that a new unit (CCD) ordered today will ship in the first or second week of MAY.

Was also told that the '05's would start arriving as early as July.

....and supposedly along with the new model year comes a 5% price increase. Can not confirm this though.
