I figured EXclusive.

USNMM, do you mean they sell Forest River RVs only?

Yes Exclusive is what I meant. I hate this auto type correct on keyboard, screws me up more than I already am.

The answer is "no" some dealers (like Camping World, RV wholesalers and RV Direct) carry different models from various manufacturers.

My local dealer carried mostly FR and even then just a few of the models in stock but could order what you wanted. I assume most dealers are the same way. As far as I know, they are all independent and none are owned or represent Forest River as one of their dealers (like car companies do).

In all my travels I have never seen a dealership that had "Forest River" (or even "Flagstaff") in their name; always "Media Camping" or "Camping World" or some such.

Yes exclusive, I also wondered about lack of advertising for Forest river at dealers. My dealer has absolutely no signs or banners at all showing they are a Forest River Dealer. They have a huge Coachman sign and see other name. You wouldn't know they sold FR unless you looked at inventory. Is this the way other dealers are?
On good side dealer called with price for me for retrofitting the pantry to the new slide out pantry and parts on order. Hopefully new slide out pantry in before we start our fulltiming at end of the month.

That is not uncommon among dealers. My first tt (crossroads zinger) came from camping world. Camping world deals in crossroads, forest river, keystone and the list goes on. They do not advertise one over another, they just show you the ones that match the floor plan you want.

My sabre is coming from Bill plemmons rv. They too have Winnebago, keystone, forest river, etc. They recently started carrying sabres and they don't even have their brochures readily available. From what I have seen this is the norm for dealers. It's kind of like going to Carmax. They don't specialize in one but rather selling you something along the lines of what you were looking for.

There is the occasional dealership that focuses. For example country roads rv sells mostly the palomino line with some coachmen and sandpipers mixed in.
