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


Yes, waiting sucks. But with the reality of where manufacturing is...you're not doing to bad. Fact is, we created this..doesn't matter what industry, everything is struggling. Between supply issues and lack of workers (and those two go hand in hand most often, compounding the supply issue) it's a small miracle just getting something that is complete.

One cannot simply 'shut down' entire industries, pay people to stay home, and think that everything is going to keep chugging along normally.

Hope you see soon... would be a GREAT Christmas gift!!

For the record, NOBODY thought that. Back at the beginning of this experts were on every news outlet saying that this was gong to have long term repercussions on the economy, supply chains, etc..

None of this should come as a surprise to anyone.

I'm really not surprised, just venting I guess. Hopefully it will be constructed well and will last us a good long while. This is a big purchase for us, guess you can understand the excitement we have to finally take ownership. There are a few cards to play as we are a pretty good ways from the dealership, a little planning for sure. I have my Snow River sold, so we will not have it to use when we travel to Arizona. Really looking forward to the road trip. Anyone know of a good camping spot near Mesa, Arizona that is a little off grid? Barry

We've spent some time, would go back for sure, just outside of Silver City. Hwy 15, maybe half hour, 45 min's out. Part of the Gila Nat forest.

It's headed the right direction... from there, White Sands, Lincoln Nat Forest, Carlsbad Caverns, etc.....

True, waiting can be a bummer, but certainly not the end of the world. In 2001, it took Ford 10-months (yes, 10!) to build our F-350. During the wait, we just kept saving money to buy our camper.

Actually the wait was good in a way, we were able to make some changes to our build and it didn't bother Host to get a few more of our green backs. Thanks for sharing your camping spot, we will definitely try it out. Barry

I added the new ac they were offering, Randal said it would use less energy to operate and would be quieter. It operates with remote control which I think will be nice on a hot evening being able to shut the ac off from bed when the night air cools. The biggie was I added the extreme solar package. It was a difficult decision as it was very expensive. Energy is my biggest obstacle when off grid. With the bigger holding tanks on the host it will give us much more time to enjoy being off grid. I'm retired and excited about the journeys ahead in our new camper. Barry
