Its fun to order one! Ours took over 3 months, but Keystone shuts down for almost a month at Christmas.
Keystone does 2 major model updates through the year, with one focused around Christmas. We were pleasantly surprised to see ours come in with an LCD TV, 7K axles, and outlets in the basement, none of which were available when we ordered. (I know this sounds dated now - but pretty cool to us in 2007!)
The build time depends on a lot of factors...for example some manufacturers close down for a week or so for the 4th of July, and some close for Christmas.
Also the plants will finish building on particular model, maybe building a run of 50 or so, and switch over to building yet another model till they build X number of those...and so on.
It's a system that works for them, but maybe not so much for the poor guy waiting for his to be delivered!
And like Roadtrippin said...sometimes a late 2011 for example will show up at your dealer with 2012 decor, graphics or additional standard equipment that wasn't in the brochure! Cool!

Ordered two fivers, one for a friend, and rather than ask dealers for a price, I gave them my target price for each unit. One dealer apparently didn't take it too seriously and missed the total by $11k. The others were close, one slightly under the target. Orders placed last week of Jan., units arrived 1st week in March. so 6 weeks. Lead time will be longer during spring rush and Holiday plant shutdowns.

It depends...(as should be obvious). Only the dealer calling the factory can give you a real answer.
Assuming the factory is about to start the model you want, and all the units in that run are not sold, it can be as short as a few weeks.
If it's a "less' popular model, and the factory is going slow, it can many (many) months.
Ours took about 7 weeks
2008 F350SD V10 with an 2012 Arctic Fox 29-5E When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.
Our Montana took 6 weeks. It couldn't have worked out better as we got it just after my retirement. We had time to get the things we needed for her, and the things we didn't, before she arrived. We did a shake-down stay nearby and everything was great!
