  • Awning Shortage

    I noticed the May 10, 2021 post on Northwood's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/northwoodmf...46185075453903) had a 27-5L coming off the line without an awning, so I asked about the missing awning. Here is their response:

    "We have recently had a large awning shortage, especially alumaguard awnings. Tough times but we are doing our best to get RV's out the door and to their new owners!"

    Could mean they will be sitting in the factory lot until available, then shipped to dealers -or- they'll deliver the units & have the dealers install the awnings when available.

    A couple months ago, it was a shortage of air conditioners and refrigerators.

      I have run into shortages and backorders on all kinds of things in recent months. Read that it is a shortage of raw materials that is causing this. I have run into everything from computer chips, to truck shells, to fuel tank caps, lumber, wire, etc. etc. Seems like anything might be in short supply or backordered right now. Hope it is not the new normal.

        Northwood clarified what they are doing:

        "we are not shipping units without awnings. Simply waiting till they arrive and installing them, then shipping to the dealer once finalized with PDI."

          Last summer my trailer went into production in mid-June, waited on parts and departed LaGrande six weeks later. Never asked what parts were on backorder.
