Realistically, there is probably little point pinging vw chat for at least the 2 week build period. And I was told it could even be the Friday of your build week. So I shouldn't assume that yours will be straight out the blocks at 0800 Monday morning. Believe me I have had all the excuses out there. Still no word on our build week 20 Coast. Even if they had set fire to it and started again from scratch we should have had news by now.:headbang
Fingers crossed you’ll be one of the ones that suddenly finds out it’s at the dealers! Love those stories!

Looking to buy
Had confirmation today from VW chat "it's in final stages of build in Hannover" no stage numbering given, just that.... who knows! Just glad it's in production to be honest :D

I'm getting a complete information blackout from VW. Since my build started on 14th June I've had several updates after chasing the dealer. Basically that its stuck at stage 5 due to spare parts shortage. Its exasperating that the dealer or chat can't offer any more info. We have no idea if/when we will get the Ocean.

T6.1 Coast 150
Well after 7 months, meant to be picking up our new Coast this Friday.
It's at vw Liverpool, all ready and waiting.
What could go wrong.....
Well my daughter has tested positive so now all in self isolation till next week .
Shes fine. Just board of sitting in the sun with nothing to do.
Just goes to show, sometimes it's just how it goes.

That's so disappointing for you Trudi. Wishing her a speedy recovery and that you all stay safe.

Oh nooo! Just a thought but I think liverpool offer free delivery on new orders - maybe you could get it delivered so at least you could have a play and camp out at home?

After such a long wait a few more days isn't to bad.
It's just one of those things.
To be honest, I'm quite looking forward to going up to Liverpool to pick it up. All part of the experience .
Glass half full and all that

We had an update today from LVC about the Ocean we ordered at the start of March this year. it’s expected that the build will be in December, with a delivery possible during January. 10 months delivery isn’t what we’d expected at the time of ordering, but at least we can see the end in sight (we hope), and we can start to plan our Spring ‘22 wanderings! Plus we can get all those essential bits and bobs on Santa’s list.

Sooo some hope peeps! I ordered 18th January, 150ps ocean. Told delivery March 1st ( ) missed the first list, then made it onto the 2nd list est delivery July. Then had a confirmed 24 week build. Went into build week 24 14th June. Disappeared when factory shutdown week 25. Popped up at port of exit after 2 weeks. Spent 2 weeks at port, 1 day at sea. Currently in port of entry and got transport to dealership by end of this week so it will be about 1 week at Grimsby.
it should be ours in 1 week! All the delays in the world don’t sully the excitement I’m feeling right now!!

Getting exciting then! Similar position for us, Ocean arrived in Sheerness on 13th, (ordered late Nov, build week 21) and the transport order was raised on Friday. VW estimate 5-7 working days from the transport order so should be with our dealer late this week or early next. Maybe 2-3 weeks away now??...

Well, today was the day! 259 days after placing our order, I picked up our brand new California T6.1 Ocean 150! The hour drive home from the dealer was a total pleasure!

Even though (like most expectant owners) I have watched all of YouTube 5 times over, and know the van inside out, it feels different actually seeing it all in the flesh. I’m a bit overwhelmed by all of the things I need to get my head around before our maiden camping trip on Thursday. A short 2 nighter to test everything out. Can’t wait!

For all those still waiting, keep the faith, as it will certainly be worth it when you take possession. Trust me!
