My dealer said if you have a ship date, that is firm and you will be good to go. "D.C." means distribution center I'd think. And from there it gets picked up by an outsourced carrier to be taken to your dealer. Definitely good news . What part of the country are you in? It seems like that could be a factor. Does any one know if the ORVs are all put together in one facility in the US by Polaris? Or do they have multiple?Headed to the distribution center from the factory. Then it gets loaded on the freight truck to the dealer.
