    I wonder what number GFC they are at.

    My order number is #1117...Not sure if that's what number GFC I have. Trying to do the math just to see how accurate it is, so I can play a camping trip when I go to pick it up.

    Just shooting from the hip here. I haven't done this yet and have only used Gorilla glue. You might want to use something that doesn't expand to fill? I'm just thinking this should one of the rails ever crack. You might have a hard time removing it? Plain silicone will peel up.

    Also, anything that expands could blow out and be visible / stick to the paint?

    Order number and build number are different. I'd get in touch with Elise and ask for your build number. She also gave me a rough start date when I contacted her.

    I believe it was said that the orders started at #1000? Also, it depends where your number comes from. I think there was an Order number and a Confirmation / Production number that you get back from GFC once they slot you in? This is what I am remembering from the initial pre-production orders where things were a bit squirrelly due to the planning and ramp up?

    I dont think it expands at all, it just cures properly if applied in a layer of up to 1/2". Also, spec say it dries as 100% silicone.

    Cool. I just want to throw that out there in case.

    Yeah I think I have yet to be slotted in - They said they send a second email, which I still have yet to receive. I'm just being impatient haha.

    I am itching to pull the trigger myself. I want to be sure that the funds will be available when the time comes, that I have a full go-ahead from the wife ( :ballchain: I know!), and that maybe (hoping!) this tariff BS goes away. I am still somewhat fixated on the old price.

    I wouldn't count on that price coming down anytime soon if anything GFC needs to charge more and most likely will, early bird gets the worm in this case.

    I hear you. That is one of my thoughts / worries also. I have been wanting to call up and have a talk about that. There have been a lot of improvements rolling in also.

    If the cash was available, I would have jumped on the pre-order.

    That is very true. Like @inv3ctiv3 alluded to, the price might stick even if the :censored: :censored: tariffs end. Or, go up. . .

    I don't have anything of value to sell. The GFC would allow me to get out more here in the PNW versus continuously drying out my tent, in the living room. I'm going back and forth between a GFC and a used / cheap enduro for exploring (can't swing both at the same time), while also considering that our oldest will be 16 next August (projecting a car for about $5k or less, insurance, and the high reg costs here. . .), and wondering how long my motorcycle is going to hang on. It has 109,000mi total with 35k on an eBay motor, adding about 6k/yr there. It's replacement would be used VFR800.

    Also, I feel that if I wait much longer, they might be delivering toward the end of next summer, esp with more of them getting being seen out in the wild.

    The other option would be to put a deposit in late next year when life is sitting pretty and some of the questions / worries are answered? It still might be worth a phone call to chat.

    We switched back to deposits once the lead time got really long. So right now we're taking $500 deposits and we'll invoice for the remainder at about 8 weeks out (this will vary a bit plus or minus depending on when we place orders for materials for those builds). When/if we ever get to within an eight week lead time we'll switch back to full payments, but for now we're just requiring a deposit. So I think it's safe to assume we'll be taking deposits for a little while :)

    I snuck in before the increase but I feel that with the level of quality, craftsmanship, innovation, and customer support that the price will stay and rightly so. I would have still paid the increased price but glad that I snuck in before the increase since I am looking at "add-ons" such as lights, awning brackets, and fitted sheets. I am also curious what the cab rack will look like, I am somewhat interested in a heating system but a mr buddy will work for a while.

    We just ordered our extrusion for the roof rack system. Will have a tacoma half rack for the cab and possibly a cantilever if it tests well. Nothing to show yet but racks are coming.

    Order number isn't indicative of camper numbers. Those numbers get generated for every sale, including accessories and bed rail t-nuts, of which we sell a lot.

    Awesome, if it gets figured out before my pickup or ship (still havent figured that out) date then I will add that on. I have a few things I would like to store up there.

    Did you have a chance to check on striker plates and bolts packages, Wiley? Left a message with Elise earlier today.

    Tired of listening to my side panels rattling.

    I let both Elise and Ben know to put them together. So you should be hearing from her soon.
