I agree. So far it has been great. I too got the story about "we only service RV's we sell" from two local dealers. One is about a mile from my house, and the other in Los Angeles is one of the largest in the country. Neither one have a great reputation for service, so that was not my concern. I was more interested in saving at least 10 grand.
I came to the conclusion that independent repair shops was the way to go, and RV Wholesalers depends on them for helping their customers get service around the country. There are several independent RV repair shops in my area that have good reputations, so I am not worried about repairs. The one I plan on using has about a 4 to 5 day backlog, and does warranty repair work for everyone, including Forest River.
Now if I can only get behind the wheel...
