These have been waaaay overpriced the last few months.
I'm posting this although I'm hesitant to recommend it. I've bought two of the Coleman Havana hot tubs, which other than the basket weave finish, is identical to this and is made by Bestway. Both of mine have developed a wavy/bumpy/swollen top portions over just a few weeks. I documented the weird issue in a youtube video... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjDiCMe4wGw

It said 4-5 days to ship when I looked.

Complaints of slow shipping are probably virus related.

U can try Walmart. They have the Coleman Havana (same thing/different name) for $350. I was able to order two from them recently.

Agreed. That is the best route. I too was impressed initially with the price on the Miami until I saw the seller and it is likely a China outfit which would be really scary for an item that expensive. I ended up with the Coleman Havana from Walmart as well for $350. You can find them if you check the stock for your local walmarts even though they are out of stock online.

Let us know if the top part stays the same thickness or whether it swells and gets wavy around the top like in the video I linked to in my original post. My hot tubs are on a completely sun exposed porch and although I keep the top on and even used an additional tarp over the top, both of my Havana's have gotten swollen and wavy/lumpy around the top. I'm pretty sure it's temperature related. I've seen the same issue on some reviews on Amazon. Someone had suggested that it could've been over inflated, but I inflated it with supplied pump and air hose for 5 minutes per manual. The air hose has built in air holes that (I think) when combined with the supplied pump, won't allow you to over inflate. there are several YouTube videos that show you how to add air without removing the pump and at least one guy says you can't over inflate these if you use the supplied pump and hose.

Back in stock at $298. Looks like most if not all of the seller's negative reviews are due to covid-19 shipping delays.
