They must have changed their approach as all their published information indicates they start design work once you make a deposit. How big was your deposit? Their video on the process says the initial deposit is $35,000. Giving them $35,000 to just sit and wait for a delivery/date would be frustrating.

https://advanced-rv.com/path-to-delivery/

"Step 2.

Once your deposit is received, we will configure your custom chassis (color and options) with you and order it from Mercedes-Benz. After your chassis is ordered, we will start working with you to finalize configuration of the rest of your custom RV. When the configuration details are finalized, usually about one month after we order your chassis, we will provide you drawings and a firm price."

Perhaps because of delivery uncertainties with 2019 Sprinters. Hopefully Mercedes/Daimler will get their Sprinter deliveries on track. I have been thinking of making a deposit next Spring to get a new van in about a year in 2021.

In the mean time I'll keep traveling in my Airstream Interstate.

SENIORONE - you should read sailquik's post about ordering a new Sprinter. It appears that individual custom orders are a low priority with MB Vans LLC.

They expected their first deliveries in July on the current orders by customers at the time (early May). However, they must have some 2019s because they delivered their first 144 this week. All they had at the Fest was a dealer loaned 2019 so everyone could see it and the ARV people to study it. I ordered ours after Advanced Fest but haven't heard anything about a delivery date.
