            I got a response from a factory rep to that extent. The way it was written was the run would be from early to mid June. Made it sound like only 2 weeks of a run. I asked for a clarification if that was the case and didn't hear back yet. I had understood that runs were 6-8 weeks. We were hoping to be there for a tour but may be back well east. From Alabama and hard to find them in the east. Even harder to just "drop in" to the factory.

              Does that mean only a 2 week run? Seems short.

                Sorry I can not remember the exact conversation. It seems to me that the 29-5T is not as big a seller as the other models. I know my local dealer still has two on the lot.

                  Our 29-5T assembly line run was two weeks.

                  I believe that's true for all the models, before they switch the line for the next model's run.

                    Most of the runs are about 2 weeks, it seemed. The Nash 25C seemed like it was made once or twice a year. I was told in December that it would be about a 6 month wait. Then the 24B was announced and I went with that. They are actually the same length. Some popular models like the Arctic Fox 25 lineup seem to be done several times a year.

                      I called and talked to a factory rep this morning and the 29-5T run could start as early as the week of the 20th of May. The actual start will depend on how their progress has been on the current run, 32-5M or 35-5Z I think she said, and if they haven't fallen behind. I didn't discuss length of the run.

                        APRIL 22 27-5L

                        From the data so far it looks like 1/3 of what Northwood is selling for the Large Units is that darn 27-5L.

                          'Supply & Demand' --- The 27-5L is NW's most popular 5th wheel model, followed by the 29-5T (at least the last time I heard).

                          Each have their superior points & all are quality units.

                            Got a message last week that the 29-5T production was scheduled to begin this week. We are currently in Boise heading to La Grande today Wednesday the 15th and will catch the tour tomorrow on our way to Spokane. Looking forward to the tour. Last RV factory tour was at the Vanleigh facility, huge disappointment, so we're hoping for a positive one in OR.

                              Hey if you have a chance during the tour can you inquire why they only put the one skinny window on the door side (just as you come in the door on the left) and not on the other side in the same location. It looks odd to me to not have the sides match. I thought it might be a structural issue but after watching how they make the sides on YouTube I am not so sure. I was wondering if you could buy another window and put it in.

                              If you see one being built with main floor carpet delete its hopefully mine.
