Called to get an update for my Host Cascade build. I signed the papers March 31, I was given a build date last of September, first of October. Build date has been pushed to end of October, first of November. Obtaining materials and components are causing the delays. I'm now thinking I may not even have my camper by the end of the year. Just venting. Barry

Sorry to hear about your delay.



I'm so glad I won't be ordering my truck and camper until 2025/26.

Tens of thousands of Ford trucks are being stored in a huge parking lot(s) waiting for computer chips.

I'm just gonna be patient as I can. My wife and I have thought of getting another camper for a while now. We really never saw a camper we would trade our Snowriver for till we looked at a used Host Cascade at DH&V rv in apex, nc. We liked the camper just not the used 2018 Cascade we visited. It had been abused, appeared to have structural damage. So we ordered a new one. It is fun to dream of the new camper and the adventures we will still be making in a TC. Barry

You're right! I still did a double take even when looking back after you pointed it out.

Apologies to both Messrs W.

I'm an 'off the rack' kinda guy... I'll buy new, but I want to see it on the lot and touch and inspect it.

I see literally hundreds of new RV's of all flavors in my area on dealer lots... I have no idea on their pricing, but they have plenty in stock from what I see from the road.

I bought my 2019 brand new and it was the exact floor plan I wanted, but needed some changes and the major one was going from the dinette to the theater seat option.

I just asked for that when we bought it off the lot and they ordered the theater seats for it. I took the rig home and waited a couple of months for it to come in, but I did have that couple of months to enjoy the new rig and get the other 'mods' I was planning on doing to it anyway done with.

I got a great deal on it in July of 2019, even with the extra grand for the theater seats..

Anyway, that's my story and hope you get your rig soon and hope it's all you wanted it to be.

Good luck! Mitch

I wanted recliners, but kept putting it off. This weekend we will roadtrip/camp with 3 young kids and a daughter, so it’s good that I have the bunk above the dinette and the dinette that makes into a bed. [emoticon]

Good time, bad time, who really knows that answer. For us it was the right time. Somehow you just know. I'm not looking back. I had no idea how hard it was going to be growing old. Everything takes longer to do and somethings just can't do anymore. Really looking forward to the new camper. Barry

Did they take possession of the trade in?

If you can still head out, not a huge imposition.

If they did take it, maybe you can talk them into getting you a rental unit for your trouble...at least that way you can get some time out camping.
