Construction started with a mock up of the grooming and equipment spaces in the basement, allowing visualization of the space and its components. This was done prior to ordering the vehicle. The vehicle was ordered July 17, 2004. After a fairly painful process, the new chassis/body hit our driveway March 1, 2005, a mere seven and one half months later.
