Default Build Dates and VIN

Anyone know how soon before the build or online date does LTV normally give out the MB chassis VIN?
Is it true the factory shuts down the first two weeks of July for plant wide vacation?

Not sure about dates or length, but they do shut the plant for vacation at some point every summer.

I believe we received our build number from Don K/Winkler about 2-3 weeks before it was placed on the production line and received a VIN once production ensued (obtained by request e-mail to Winkler/Van City for obtaining insurance quote info)...btw consider obtaining a FMCA quote for Nationwide, we then joined FMCA-since USAA doesn't provide coverage for motorized RVs-once we obtained and committed to the quote/coverage a few days before we accepted LTV ownership-11.5 mos after placing our deposit).

Good luck and happy trails.

Ours is scheduled to go online July 15. So thinking they are just back from vacation? Plus they should have a few 2020 coaches under their belt by then.

Ours is scheduled to start production on July 16th....so one day after you.

I heard that the plant closes this year July 22nd through August 2nd. I heard the dates from the LTV Enthusiasts Facebook page, not from anyone in Winkler, so take it with a huge grain of salt.

We are exactly one week out from our estimated build date and I have heard nothing from Van City Las Vegas, or LTV on my VIN. I will update this post once I get a VIN.

For information and reference, my FX, Order #30400, rolled off the production line Monday.
The order was placed on January 17, 2019.
The VIN was assigned on June 16, 2019.
By this schedule, it took LTV just about 4 weeks to put together this FX.

Thatís interesting, my order 29844 was placed in November. Now there was a glitch with upholstery material selection that shuffled us back a bit. Iím a Canadian purchaser if that matters.

We placed our order for a 2020 UMB a few weeks ago an received our order number as 32518.

Who is updating you with your VIN numbers and production dates? Do you call the factory or dealer to get updates?

We plan to visit Winkler when ours get closer to production and would appreciate any advise on the "visit" and plant tour.

I ordered through La Mesa in Sacramento. Alex, the Sales Manager, at La Mesa was great in communicating and forwarding factory information to me to keep me updated.

I have made two change orders during my purchase. The first one was to cancel the interior table very early. The second was to add the exterior picnic table. That was later and I had to pay a change-order fee, quit expensive at $150 or so. Both changes were before the VIN number was assigned.
