That's some good perspective RoadHog. Hope they'll be able to cut the wait back to a more reasonable time frame soon.

I read where the RV Industry posted best October total in 38 years and shipments will grow for the 6th straight year in 2015. RV sales are very discretionary and this is encouraging for the US economy. Most of us share the same reasons for choosing a LTV RV. My wife and I had been searching for several years, and were convinced we need not look further. Seeing the product in the flesh convinced us to make the purchase and do it quickly. The Unity was a hot seller at the Pomona RV show and the dealer easily met the dealership quota allocated. Some folks have the time to wait, but we aren't getting younger and time passes by so quickly for the elderly.

I don't have a crystal ball therefore can't predict when LTV will return to a shorter, more reasonable build time. Doesn't appear this will happen next year.

Best to all,

J&B

Hi all,

We ordered a 2015.5 Unity Murphy Bed model on 9/18/2014, just after the Hershey Show. At that time, we were told to expect delivery in April 2015. Earlier today we checked on status, and were told that due to a variety of issues (at the LTV end), it would be July.

Not happy, and wondering if anyone else either has a confirmed date, or has found their expected date has suddenly slipped by another 3 months?

Cannot say if it applies to MB models only or not.

Apparently this news arrived from LTV while our sales contact was away (the past two weeks), and there may be some further update(s) in coming weeks. Sorry, all we know at the moment...

Was told right from beginning that delivery for a MB ordered in late October would be end of July and may be August.
Probably a dealer that wants to close a deal immediately.

You know often it is preferable to put the customer in front of a "fait accompli" and find excuse for late delivery, knowing than that customer has no real choice.
Yours will also be a 2016 model. No clues what are going to be the changes
Hope your deposit was slim

After 11 months to the day, we'll be taking delivery of our 2015.5 Unity TB on Valentines Day! PTL! The drama experienced through all the 2014-2015-2015.5 Unity 'changes' has been challenging, and a reminder that the 'fine print' disclaimer at the bottom of ALL RV manufactures brochures protects them during model year bridging and running changes. So, be advised that what you see (order) now is probably not exactly what you will ultimately get.... as long as the 10-12 month lead time prevails. But, LTV is still the BEST! Its worth the wait. We're on our way.

We went to the Pomona Show but didn't get our TB ordered till a couple weeks before Christmas from a dealer in Minnesota, we're told August/September 2015. Still waiting for a VIN number. We knew there would be a long wait so no biggie.. As we were leaving the Grand Canyon last weekend we saw a unity with a couple bikes on back headed in, lucky! times like that make the wait rough..

Vin numbers are assigned about 8 weeks from delivery once they are ready to start the build.
