I'm happy to report that the Quadrafire AE that I ordered on July 5th just arrived at my dealer and is schedule for installation at the begining of september. I had an opportunity get the stove from another dealer but he wanted to charge me $1300 more for the same setup. I'm glad I stayed with my original order (thanks to you guys and your advice). The stove was scheduled to arrive in early to mid september so arrival dates will just depend on how quickly Quadrafire can ship out to your dealer. Just be patient and I'm certain most everyone will receive their stove before it gets really cold. By the way I paid $4400 for the MT Vernon AE with hearth pad, installation and two tons of Mountain Creek Pellets. This was before the increase went into affect and the dealer did not try to make me pay the difference in cost. Make sure you are dealing with a dealer that is on the up and up. How they treat you now may be a reflection of how they treat you if your stove is down and you need service. I will post pictures once the installation has been completed. Good Luck to All.
