"In transit"

I'm looking to upgrade to a '19 soon and am having a helluva time finding any Limiteds or Touring trims in stock in the Socal area. Every dealer website I've looked at shows a nice healthy stock of Foresters (maybe ~50-60 on average). I then go to sort by Limited or Touring trim and there are usually 15-20 available, but oh, wait.... 19 out of 20 of them are "In transit", lol. This is the case at practically every dealer I've looked at so far.

At first I thought it was a weird website bug, but now I'm questioning what is going on here. Did some crazy Forester tycoon swoop in over the weekend and buy up all of the Limited and Touring Foresters? Does "In transit" mean multiple things?

Just trying to figure this out. Are these vehicles selling so fast that they can't keep them on the lots? If so, do I need to ask them to hold one for me so I have time to drive down and check one out? I live about 3 hours from the nearest dealer.

Don't know about the rest of the country but here in the northeast, 99% of the ones that are touring and say in transit are already accounted for since they are ordered by the buyer.

So it sounds like they are either just insanely in-demand or dealers don't keep many on the lots?
