I was told in August we had an estimate ready date of 10/6. Now they’re saying 11/30. Unbelievable!!

I'm looking for a replacement but dealer has kept my name on it until either it arrives or I find one to buy close to what i want.
Looked at and put hands on a a 2020 Revel today. Nice rig but way too cramped. With all the stuff Winni stuffed under it the ground clearance is reduced to about the same as a stock RWD. That Euro bed is nice but takes up far too much room. Not removable. The bathroom/shower takes up too much space. High quality build though if your down with that loss of space. Don't see that rig doing very well in serious off road conditions. They have re-positioned the exhaust pipe in front of right rear wheel and hangs very low. Can only imagine how bad it will get hung up in stuff bending it into rear tire. Not very well thought out. Plus NO HEATED SEATS...Party foul

The Revel is designed to be an RV not an overlanding vehicle. If you want to beef it up, give the folks at Van Compass or Agile a call and they can help with the ground clearance and other upgrades. VC fit 35s on a Revel recently.

What I have heard twice in the past few weeks is that they screwed up the delivery system, complete vans are just sitting in SC. and are starting to ship whatever they can, however they can. We will have to wait and see what everyone here posts to know for sure.

There are hundreds of vans sitting that did not pass quality control, have missing parts, have no parts available do to shortage, have various degrees of assembly line damage including paint issues. Basically they are on the back burner while vans that are completed and pass quality control are shipped out.
Got this info from a District Manager from the South East Region. Where the assembly plant is located.

Altering the van defeats the purpose of having a properly engineered van. Thats the whole point of buying the MB product. All that aftermarket crap does not hold up, creates squeaks, creaks, poor handling and other suspension related issues. Not to mention effect the Vehicle Skid Control, Anti lock Brakes, Cross Wind assist by changing the calculations.

What I’m annoyed about is they told us in August we’d be ready for release 10/6, now saying 11/30, and what’s to say when that date rolls around it won’t be pushed back again? Seems like these dates are meaningless. Is there any rhyme or reason? Should we bail on our fully loaded build and go after one of these ones that are out in the wild but lacking some key features for us?
