Steve, that makes a lot of sense. I'm sure Reace is anxious to finish with and move the "classic" molds to make more space in the production facility. It also then lets all the production crew move to the new product line and let them get used to new methods/designs that much sooner.

Hello

There is a push to get all of the 2016 models built, so those units will definitely receive the first option to move up in production. There is approximately 30 'Classic's' left to be built. Aside from that, the office does have a plan for moving completion dates up, however as Laura mentioned, when she switched from a 2016 model to a 2017 model, the note to move her completion date up was not moved with it. Our error...Tammy has apologized for this mistake and she is working to move Laura up.

As soon as we get this expansion completed, all of the dates will begin to move up!

Reace

Thank you Reace, for this clarification! Most people will and do understand things are not easy for ETI this production year! "After rain comes sunshine". Sun is peaking through for you guys already!

This group is capable of answering lots of questions when people have issues or problems. What we can't do is answer for ETI when it comes to the wheres and whys of their production schedule.

And what other RV brand's forum has as much direct input/answers from the owners of the company like we see here often?

Thanks Reace, Tammy and Crew for being the friendly competent people you are!

That's welcome news for me and all the other's with completion dates nearly a year out. Really nice to hear it from the horse's mouth. Happy days are here again.

We axed about getting a 2017 21 instead of the 2016 back in June for a July 11, 2016 pick up. We were told no problem. You just have to wait another year.
We are quite happy with our 2016. We thought we were right on the border line of ETI starting production of 2017 21s.

Jim, I don't consider you snotty. I appreciate your comments and helpfulness to forum members.
