DELIVERY OF YOUR PARK
Top questions about delivery.
1. How long does it take to get a Park Model?
Normally within 4-6 weeks of placing the order.
During the summer months it may extend to 8-10 weeks or
longer. Keep checking back to make sure you don't
get caught in the backlog or ask that we contact you
when it is appropriate to place your order.
2. Can I request a specific delivery date?
Sure as long as you are aware that mother nature
or other factors could delay delivery on the exact date
Most people schedule installation, A/C, other
contractors for the anticipated delivery date of the
unit. You would save yourself a lot of frustration
if you wait until the unit arrives before making all the
appointments or at least make the appointments for the
week after the anticipated delivery date.
The installation contractors we deal with normally
tell us to call once the unit is onsite.
3. What should I do to prepare for delivery?
Check the tree line clearance on your property and
county roads leading to your property.
All non-loft units will need at least 15' of clearance; loft
units at least 16' of clearance. If you have a
gate onto your property make sure it will allow at
minimum 14' wide
clearance to pull through.
You can pre-level the area that the Park Model will
be placed to make installation a lot easier. You
do not necessarily have to pour a pad.
Make sure you have water, 50-amp electrical panel,
and sewer available within 20' of the unit.
4. What should I expect when the unit ships?
The trucks are large commercial trucks. They
are 30' in length; with the Park Model attached it would
total 65-70' in length. Delta RV will provide you
with the drivers name and phone number so you can be in
contact with him. The driver will be able to tell
you of his progress and anticipated time for delivery.
Is the unit covered by insurance while in
Yes, as long as it is on the drivers hitch it is
covered by the freight companies insurance. If he
is involved in an accident along the route your unit is
There are situations that are beyond the drivers
control. Such as the tape and texture cracking
that will occur as the unit transport (uneven pavement,
pot holes in road, etc). This occurs in every unit
and is not a structural defect.
Another situation that occurs is damage to loft units
when transport takes the unit through county roads that
are over grown with trees. While the driver will
do his best to avoid branches some times it is
unavoidable. To make a simple correlation you can
not thread a rope through a needle without fraying it. You
might want to check with your County road department to
see if they will clear the tree branches sufficiently to
allow the unit to travel without damage.
6. What happens when the unit is delivered?
The driver will park it where you want it as long as
there is sufficient room for him. You need to
inspect the exterior for any road damage to the unit and
note it on the freight bill. Be prepared to have a
step ladder handy to get into the unit.
If you are ordering a tape and texture unit expect
some hairline cracking around the window sills. It
happens and it is not a major issue. There may be
dust on the floor from the bouncing of the roads.
A few of the shingles may blow off during transport.
But overall the units arrive it great shape. Keep
a list of noticeable items as you walk through it the
Once the unit is leveled and utilities are connected
test each electrical outlet and water lines.
Request the gas company to come out and test the gas
line and convert stove connections if
required or the heater to natural gas if appropriate.
Add any other issues to your initial inspection list
and forward it to Delta RV Brokers for warranty work.
