My new 27' EB

On 9/17/12, I dropped $5K down for the commissioning to build a 27' EB. To be delivered Feb 2013 for my tax reasons.
Two upgrades, microwave and delete skylight.

On 10/7/12 I found out that my rig is set to build end of Nov to early Dec.
Skylight delete has been approved, no word on cost over the $500. custom order fee, but rig has the final price tag we have agreed on.

This may be the last of the EB's due to licensing EB trademark runs out @ years end.
No idea if there will be any more EB's, or another version of the hatch back style in the future.
Like the carryover hatch back from the Pan American, it may be another couple of years for a new redesign of this feature.

Stay tuned more info to follow

Stopped my my dealer in Paso Robles,

And found out,


That my frame will be the third unit on 2013's production schedule.


Will AS carry over the EB further into 2013?

or,

Will this be the last EB made?

Corrections & news

I have what appears to be confirmation about my spot & build specs on the production line.

Project start 12/12/12

Project release 1/3/13
said to be the third unit off the line that day.

Looks like I will have a "holiday" coach, 23 days on the line.
Does the production line take a break from Xmas to New years?

Stay tuned, , ,

I also picked up a new EB brochure dated 10/12, my old one dated 1/11

You should get to Jackson Center and see your new girl being made!! I took my second tour of 2012 just two weeks ago and so wish I could have seen ours in the production line. I really enjoyed my time at Jackson Center. And yes, I believe they do take a week off at Christmas but, you should contact them to be sure!! Good luck!!!

we are hoping to be buying our AS perhaps in feb 2014....we were eyeballing the EB model too....love the hatch back! Great addition for loading bikes etc and for tailgaiting. I will be a bit sad if they do not make a similar model when our time comes

Although I do wish they offered a twin bed setup instead of the queen...not sure if you order new from AS they could accommodate such a request...?

Man, I bet you all are really excited!!! ANTICIPATION

Enjoy Yourselves and keep us all updated and envious!

PharmGeek,

I think you really need to "bite the bullet" and custom order your 27' EB now before its too late!

I agree, don't think the EB will be around in 2014. They are moving on to new models. You can always pay for a custom AS but, it will cost you dearly!! Bite the bullet ~ we just did and are so happy we did

And the search is so fun. Cheers!!

You all are quite the bad influences!!!

It is impossible for now....jan-march of 2013 is going to be just stupid crazy. Wife wants to sell our house...she has a nice chunk of money and she wants to sell our house and move into a bigger home (we are outgrowing our home with our #2 baby due 1/19/13)...oh yeah, did I mention a new baby in January

Much will depend on how much the house sells for and how much equity we can squeak out with (if any)...if things go quite well, then 2013 is quite plausible...but im doubting this...it is 90% chance not feasable til 2014...pre-appraisal for our house is tomorrow so that will give me the beginning of some idea about it.

But sadly, 2012 is no way no how - I guess this is goodbuy EB for me...or I guess if it was that important to me, then it will simply mean higher cost for me later

No, no... This is not the end.... You may still get your hart's desire! You may have a similar experience to ours.

We dreamed about the 'Ocean Breeze' edition for years.... Then we stumbled upon a very gently used 2009 27' FB International Ocean Breeze in the Forum's classified adds. It was kismet, we found our hart's desire! Dreams do come true, you just need to hang in there and continue to believe.
