How long from CA port to Colorado?

Anybody know how long it usually takes for an FP to arrive at a Colorado dealer after it reaches the port in California? My FP is expected to arrive at Port Hueneme in Oxnard, CA on 3/25. The vista printout lists a handover date in early May. Based on recent posts from others on this forum, I'm hoping to get my new FP by mid April.

My Vista printout does not seem to show a shipping date (maybe I just checked the tracking page and got lucky?) but the car arrived at the dealer the day before the listed "Delivery Date". The dealer turned it around in a few hours and I picked it up the same day.
So the "Planned Handover" is still two days away and I've had the car for four days already. I guess I'd have some confidence in whatever the Vista report says after the car is actually built, and that the Delivery Date might already include a good estimate of travel time after being unloaded from the ship.
The "Accepted Handover" on my Vista report is in mid-April. Seems to be a useless piece of information to me...

All depends on trucks leaving CA. I'd hazard a guess at mid April.

The delta time between my ship arrival (March 9) and my "Delivery Date" (March 17) is about 8 days. The vehicle seems to have been unloaded and cleared customs on March 10, and probably was claimed by Jag's port service operation which does some vehicle prep and accessory installation. The 11th and 12th was a weekend. The dealer is a bit over an hour from the port, and the vehicle arrived down here on March 16.
How much of a time gap is there between your ship's arrival and your nominal "Delivery Date"? If it is more than 8 days then maybe they are also estimating the transportation link to Colorado...

Mine took about 6 weeks from Port Hueneme to the dealer in Broomfield.

In port 12/17, delivered on 2/1, the same delivery date on the Vista order when I put it in on 8/31/16. Sad but true.

And don't expect the dealer to have any updates for you once it hits port, they completely lose visibility.

You may get luckier than I did, probably depends on when the next truck heads this way.
