It's getting real now. I'm told my Ventana 4369 should go to chassis prep on 3/29, so I guess right before the week shutdown. Not sure any/much work will get done on it before the shut down.

A bit nervous about the work being done right after a week shut down. Maybe it's no big deal, but I know back int the '80s, people used to say to never get a car made up in Detroit after the workers were off partying for a long holiday weekend or in the shutdown between Christmas and New Years.

I also don't know for sure on delivery. I was originally told ready for shipment to dealer in mid August. However, with it now scheduled for chassis prep on 6/29, it would seem like it should be ready to ship to dealer earlier than that, which would be six weeks (post shutdown -- assuming they did no work pre-shut down 4th of July week) to mid August. I don't think a Ventana takes six weeks to build, does it?

Well pulled the trigger, 2019 Ventana 4037. Loaded with options including freezer in basement and a few extra wires (similar to tnedator's). Left solar panels off, but got the prep. They tell me it is run #12 ship date 9/25. Waiting to hear what that means as far as our trip to the plant for first look, I assume it is 2nd/3rd week in September but have no real idea.
Is there an easy way to figure out what Run number 12 means as far as dates. I know there is chassis prep, in the building , paint and final check, but would like to have a sense as to what this means time wise.

I'm not sure what run I am, but mine was originally scheduled for a mid August ship, and a recent update says it's going to chassis prep on 6/30.

I don't know my run. Have you been told when you are going to chassis prep?

No I have not. My dealer had a lot of slots and I was able to grab that one. I wanted a Spartan and thatís what was available. Ordered a few weeks ago.

Ok, when I finalized my order on May 15th or so, I was given an estimated shipment of mid August. Then, a couple weeks ago, I was given an update of chassis prep on 6/30. Not sure if that means my ready for shipment will be sooner, or if it will really be in production for 5-6 weeks.

Yea. I know mine is run 6, should leave factory 8/20 and arrive at dealer 8/25. He told me maybe a few days earlier but not later. Ask your dealer what run youíre rig is. Should help.

So does that mean runs 1-3 are in production soon, before summer break?

I know this is a stupid question, but I'm new to this. What is a Run? I know it's a production run, but what does it mean?

Itís my understanding that a ďrunĒ refers to a week of production. As an example, run 1 would be first week of production for the 2019 model.
