Are you sure you have enough truck for a 42' Majestic? That's gonna be 20k empty and more like 24-26 loaded.

Other than that, It's like waiting for Christmas!

Hope you enjoy your new home on wheels. We will be picking ours up on a few more weeks as well.

We ordered a 43' Majestic with a sewing room at the back end. Cole and Frank made up a room for us so my wife can quilt while I'm at work. We were supposed to pick up next week but are delayed due to paint delays. Has your delivery date changed as well?

Paint delays seem to have affected several of us

We were looking at a late May/early June timeframe, but now we are looking at an end of June timeframe - due to the paint delays.

We had a contract on our house, but it fell through - so we aren't in a rush for delivery. Of course we are very excited and can't wait, but it isn't like we don't have a place to live.

Ours is a 45 foot Majestic toy hauler. We visited a few weeks ago when we were out in St Louis. We watched them put one of our slides in and the copper farmhouse sink is already in. It is looking so beautiful. Our granddaughter was with us and she was so very disappointed when we had to tell her that the slide wasn't the kind of slide she was thinking of. Candy told her she would discuss it with the engineers but she didn't think we could add that kind of slide.

Hope to meet some of you out on the road someday!
Jennie

Wrong kind of slide! LOL That's good stuff.

Our slides are installed and the roof, front and rear walls are going on this week. I'm ready for a little vacation and going out to pick up a new home seems like a great way to spend some vacation time!

I remember seeing it when we toured the factory, Congrats!
Was the paint shop backed up or were there other issues?

Paint shop is/was only working 2 days a week. It takes 6 days to paint one of our rigs. So, it's been taking 3 weeks to get them turned around. NH is continuing to build, slowing down on some, such as mine, so they can get more finished when the paint factory comes fully on line. Then they can send multiple units up to be painted. Ours was delayed 6 weeks which actually ended up being good timing as I was just invited to a Navy ship reunion out in Iowa near the end of July. It will be good to see old shipmates after 30 years.
