Production time

I haven't found a thread revealing the time it takes to build. Our current completion date is mid September. Wondering when we should expect a start date?

I've seen it vary. With the new factory expansion, the build times have gone down slightly, and they are able to build more trailers simultaneously. I'd figure maybe 3 weeks, but that's just an educated guess based on the dates in the "It's Friday" thread. You typically see the shell photos week one, and by the end of week 3 it's done.

our completion date is one month from now and we received paperwork in the mail last week but that's about it, I'd say less than a month for build and QA now?

Jon,
We pick up our 21 on August 17th and on Wednesday got our first photos. I bet you'll have some in a day or two. Lucky that you were able to get it registered, not an option in Illinois...

Thanks everybody. This gives us a general idea. For September 18 completion, we shouldn't really expect them to start until pretty much the last week of August.

I'm not sure why ours was built so early. We were due for completion Aug 17. We received our first pictures on July 5 and the final set on July 18. It was finished with the exception of QA. Unfortunately we are unable to get up early to pick it up.

We received our first production photos on June 6th and the last ones on June 15th. This was about 7 business days.

Our 19 was delivered rather than picked up and it left ETI on June 29th, about two weeks after the final photos.

Was the delivery driver "famous Dave" who loves Italian food? Any pictures of the delivery?

I don't think they use Dave much anymore.
