A PM to him may prove profitable to you both. If there is an RV direct rep here he is still "lurking" and may come out of the closet if he wants your business.

We now understand how financing a Class C works, thanks in large part to the input from this board.

Our next question is: Is it possible to order factory direct from Forest River bypassing a dealer?

In exploring the Forester product it seems the dealers in my area stock Foresters without the upgraded options we would select. I’d rather purchase direct from the factory, fly to Indiana (I assume that Forester is made in Indiana) to do our walk through and take possession.

Any thoughts?
I'm sure all the other folks are correct.....you must go thru a dealer.....BUT.....I do know some folks that found the Forester dealer closest to the plant, ordered exactly what they wanted, then when it was delivered to the dealer...flew from their home in Alaska, picked it up and drove to southern Arizona for the winter before heading back home to Alaska.
So there might be an option for you. Hope it all works out.

Yes. Class C's and a's. Not sure if they have class b's. several different manufacturers. We got our Sunseeker from them and were very happy. No foresters though (only saying that as this is the forester forum).

Just peaked at RV Direct.
Class A and Class C only BUT WOW.
20-40% off MSRP

Forest River Georgetown XL Class A 378
Base Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price: $129,424.00
You won't pay anywhere near this price with RVDirect®. Expect 20% - 40% OFF.

As an example.

Here is the Georgetown Class A (not XL)

Forest River Georgetown Class A 280DS
Base Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price: $97,044.00
You won't pay anywhere near this price with RVDirect®. Expect 20% - 40% OFF.
