Waiting for the Premier

It's been about a month since we first saw the Keystone Premier 31BHPR at the Earlybird RV Show. The dealership said they ordered 4 of them and we were 3rd in line. The picture on the left shows the outside kitchen which features a refrigerator, sink, 2-burner grille, and a swivel-mounted LCD TV. We were told that it would take about 2 weeks for the new travel trailer to arrive, but it's been about a month now and it's looking less likely that we will get it in time for our Spring Break trip at the end of March.

I've read comments on the forums and there have been a couple of rumors why there might be a delay. One reason is the incredible popularity of the unit and the large number of recent orders. Another is that Keystone RV made some design changes and they were incorporating them into the new RVs.

Whatever is causing the delay, we've taken advantage by removing almost all of our gear from the Tango. It took us three trips of filling our Denali XL up to the roof to do it. It's surprising how much was packed in there. Now with the campsite already booked for our first trip of the season, we'll probably need to de-winterize the Tango and pack it with the bare minimum to take it out.

Stay tuned for more.

  1. Its been great of you to keep us up to date. You have been amazing with what you are posting. We have ours on order and while the initial order was supposed to be 4 to 6 weeks, it went up to 8 to 10 weeks and I heard a few minor changes. I look forward to reading more from our updates.

  2. Well, we got the latest update from our dealer. Apparently the factory has also had some trouble finding drivers to deliver the trailer up here. But we're now at the top of the list and it should arrive within then next couple of weeks.
