In production

Just got a note from Austin that our van is in production as a 2017 model. They will have a better ETA when it reaches the reassembly facility. They also said they are starting to receive their 2017 orders.

Now we're talking folks!

This is the news I think we all need to hear, the Line is Moving again; even if it takes a long time to get these rigs in our possession, they're starting to move and the up fitters are expecting more to arrive.

Thanks folks for following this thread.

Excellent news! When did you place your order? I'm still waiting for the arrival and hoping I'm not too far behind you.

Awesome news. Curious, like ccw, as to when you placed that order... Last August, maybe September?

Hopping to see some pics of the progress.

It actually all worked out for the best since I got the '17 options with the '16 price.

That's good news, sir!
Jocularity - as Father Mulcahy would call it, just trying to keep it light and goofy where possible.

Quick update on an old thread: we just got the word on Thursday that the Sprinters have arrived! Assuming a 12-week build cycle, it's pretty much right on schedule.

We originally sent in our deposit in late July 2016, so this has been a long process. I'm not so naive as to assume the build we be done exactly on time, but that's peanuts compared to our worries about import and Diesel-gate problems.
