Hope they took good care of you, Gary! Really enjoying the VA Highland Haven Airstream Park. Gorgeous sunsets and terrific view. Very nice folks as well.

If our Classic is due to be delivered 11/6, do you know approximately when assembly would begin? That is, how long does it take to make a Classic?

You can ask the dealer for the start date based upon the last six digits of your VIN number. I would think it would be mid October and delivery would take a couple of days.

The hotshots that bring the big (25' and longer) trailers from Jackson Center to the selling dealership, drive like bats out of .... and no grass grows under their wheels. They run at or over the speed limits.

I was at the factory every work day on the tour for several weeks and photoed the build progress of our 2014 Classic. A blizzard delayed the whole process in early January 2014.

One needs to really INSPECT everything before writing the final check. We had cracked interior walls, damaged door trim, damaged hinges, damaged light fixtures, QC issues pointed out in both writing and photos at the factory that weren't repaired before it's departure etc.

For many reasons, our dealer was not the facility we wanted to do the repairs. We went to a third party authorized to preform warranty work. The major difference is they used the appropriate parts for repairs. As an example, they did not replace broken cheap plastic catches with new cheap plastic catches. Instead they used brass catches which are better than factory.

Once the bugs are ironed out, enjoy.

Our Classic is due in production Nov 16; reading this thread gets us both so excited about our first AS! Bought ours from Ron at Foley; comments in this and other threads led us to him. Only contact to date has been via telephone, but we definitely get a sense of comfort from his knowledge and advice. Met two people just last evening (at our first WBCCI rally) who bought from Ron. He (Ron) is an evident example of how important it is to consistently deliver high quality customer service.

Anyway, we are jealous of you more fortunate souls who already have your AS!

Same thing happened to us. Then out of the blue they call and say that our new home was in the lot. Same dealer also. Make sure you check everything before you leave the lot. They are always behind on getting things done and we found out that they didn't even return our calls and texts until we went through the sales department. We love our trailer problems and all. I will fix the power awning myself when we get to our next stop in Christmas Florida since I am a rv technician

After a couple of weeks delay my Classic is scheduled for delivery the end of this month. Hopefully part of the delay is because they upped the QC. My dealer also stated that the last two Classics they got in had no issues. Of course that is salesmen talk.

Any of you 2015 classic guys using the new 2016 F-150 with a tow package as your tow vehicle?

I don't think the 2016 F150 is available yet. Hope I'm wrong but I read it won't be available for a couple months?

I was towing a 30' Flying Cloud with a 2015 F150. Depends on the trim level but for me the payload was quite lacking and I thought it was working a little hard in the mountains. At the international rally all who were towing a 30' trailer had an F250 or other brand equivalents. At times in very windy conditions I felt as though I was being pushed around a bit. In short just cut to the chase and consider a F250 diesel.

sorry, my question should be,

Is there any of you 2015 Classic guys towing it with an F-150.

(I see TinCan has moved on to a 250, ... thanks for the input. )

to answer your question, I did tow with a 2014 F150, did not like it, poor payload capacity, I even added airbags, Did not like the way it handled and breaking. I upgraded to the 2015 F250 and we are extremely happy with it. Handles great, I got the diesel and love it but the gas one would do the same, perhaps little less torque.
