    I spoke with them a few weeks ago, they told me August but they also said it would be sixteen weeks and April has long past. I don't think I could every buy or recommend anything Gobi ever again.

    Gobi and that's about it.
    Found one on Ebay in the box still. Should be here later this week or early next week. You just gotta look around. There are ways to get them, either by calling dealers or finding someone selling one.

    I ordered mines on 11/24/2020 was WAS supposed to get it this weekend. The delivery service guy said a window span from 2pm-6pm but no one called me. I was so happy I took off my roof basket and rails now my car looks bald. Finally after almost 8 months I will be finally getting mines....so yea guys. The wait is gonna be a while. BUT I'm going to be selling the Gobi Ladder ass soon as it arrives if anyone is interested HMU. I'm rocking a C4 ladder and it looks bad ass.

    Mine's supposed to be delivered in two weeks, ordered Dec 2020. I will NEVER buy anything from Gobi ever again. I understand delays, but they are so frigging bad at communicating that I don't want to support them anymore.

    All of them.
    Anyone got a 180 awning mounted to their gobi? Or even a 270? On the front runner we were able to clear the hatch with our 180 but with the gobi it sits a lot closer and I’m worried about putting the brackets even further out than they are now but if I have to I’ll move it out. Just don’t want to have to wait 8 months for their awning brackets.

    mine took almost 6 months to get and that was back in ‘17. Like 5 months and 10 days I think. It was worth it. I feel it’s the strongest rack out there. But ya the wait sucks.

    Gobi and that's about it.
    You gotta love waiting for a rack from these guys. When you finally get it, you find out you're missing one, 1 damn bolt!! Washers are there for it, no bolt to finish the install. So ridiculous and very frustrating.

    Ace hardware should have it if you have one in your area. I have an extra if you can’t find one. They sent an extra of everything in mine.

    Anybody have a ladder they've received recently so I can compare lead times? I ordered 5/3 and am curious where they're at with lead times on these. Thanks

    I hate it, but can't stop...it seems to be human nature, to observe the misery of others.

    Back in July, Gobi customer service told me the rack would be ready in August. Now that August is ending they are telling me that it will be ready in September. Now starting week 35 of the 16 week lead time.

    Just so you can manage your expectations.......it's best to go on how long the people who are currently receiving their racks have been waiting rather than going on what Gobi says their timeline is.

    I know that seems foreign and backwards to some people and it's definitely a deficiency in Gobi's business practices, however, that's the reality of the situation and will give you a closer estimate of when your rack will actually be to you.

    I am starting week 36 of the wait (ordered at end of Dec 2020) and have been told I will get it this month. I don't believe anything they say at this point.
