Welcome buddy. Impressive timeline. I think a lot of us had the same thought of backing out at one point or another. I could of grabbed a Can Am Defender several times during my wait but decided to get what I really wanted instead of settling. When I buy something like this, I usually have it 10-20 years. So I stick with the product I want no matter the circumstances. You have 3 Qtrs of the game behind you. Dig in and get through this last Final Qtr. I know you will be happy you did.Hey all; long time lurker/ first time poster throwing in my experience so far...

I’ve been checking in periodically with the dealer, and here’s a record of this journey

March 12- system shows april 22nd-june 1st
March 19- system just says May 2021
March 27- system just says June 2021
April 6- system says 4/2- 6/3
April 21- system says 4/21-6/3

May 08- system says 6/10-7/23
May 28- system says 6/10-7-23
June 8- says 7/7 - 8/18
Pretty disappointed so far. Sold my Honda Pioneer 700 in April (for more than I paid for it used 4 years ago) and have been stuck without a SXS since.
Of course, this order has taken so long that I’ve had plenty of time to read everyone else’s experiences, and to take note of all of the seemingly common issues people are having with these new machines (cracking windshields, leaky roofs, error codes, etc).
Considering backing out of my order at this point.
Thanks for the update "Sawdust". Here is a little snippet of my shipping timeline. My 2nd unit left MN on 6-3 and arrived in Washington distribution on 6-9. Supposedly it will be loaded on a truck and headed to Oregon either on 6-11 or 6-14. My dealer has told me that delivery times depend on getting full loads, obviously to distribution facilities getting full loads wont be an issue but might have some delays to your dealer.Good Morning guys, A little update from Polaris this morning. They said they are giving priority to the most popular ordered units which are the lower price point machines. Therefore our order dates for N/S means nothing. My date range is now 8-5 to 9-17 for a N/S ultimate camo order date was 3-8. This is why I kept looking around for another machine to come available. And when my N/S utlimate trail boss came along I snatched it up. Once my order is filled I think it would be fair to say with the trucking issues they are having adding another 2 or 3 weeks for trucking would not be out of line. So 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 months for me. Hang in there eveyone it's not going to be a sprint it's going to be a long and painful marathon to the finsh line.
I will complete week 13 wait tomorrow...first "ship date" will be Monday....we'll see....Northstar ultimate crew camo...ordered march 12th

Oh ok, I’m not familiar with Polaris manufacturing whatsoever, so that’s good to know. Dealer probably just giving me a story to try justify wait times.DT47.....The Ranger is built in Huntsville Alabame. That particular plant only builds the Ranger and the Slingshot.....nothing else comes out of that plant......just an FYI....but thanks for the info.
