Ordering New Georgetown XL 350 TS but need advice

I am about to order a new Georgetown XL 350 TS but not sure about the price I am getting from local dealer. I have specd the coach out and received two bids (1 from local dealer and 1 from RV direct). The dealer is quoting me about $3500 higher than RV direct and about 72% of what he claims is MSRP. Not sure if it is a decent deal or should I work closer (or even better) than the RV direct quote. I told the dealer that I am a price shopper and that I had a really good quote under 100K already (didnt provide an further details but received $99,950 from RV Direct) and he came back at $103,500 with the same options. In the end I could just by from RV direct, but like the idea of having a local relationship. Need some advice and counsel from the more experienced.

Where are you located? We had a great price quote on 378 from a local dealer but motorhome was sold out out from under us so we contacted Lazy Days Tampa and they matched it, you might check with them you can view all their inventory online.

25% off sticker is a decent price. If you can, buy from a local dealer that can service it for you. It is well worth it in the long run.

I have a 2011 350ts with full body paint for sale. You could save several thousand dollars. I live in Kentucky.

Buy local if possible, we bought out of state two times and now I learned my lesson. We are now full time in our MH which makes it even harder to get work done on it. Buy local is my advice. Good luck.

I would agree, buy local. RV dealers are funny when I comes to warranty service some wont even do it if you did not purchase from them. You should be able to come close in price of the unit. Good Luck with your purchase.

Don't buy brand new
buy one thats a year old or less
hopefully the first owner went throught all the
hassel of fixing all the bugs of new ownership.
And trust me, there will be some.

Also if you buy new from the local dealer
make sure the repair department knows what there doing.
Try to make friends with the service manager,
you may be seeing alot of him.
Good Luck!

totally agree, never again will I buy new, did it 3 times in the past 3 years, each one spent at least 4 months in service, once they were fixed they are pretty much trouble free for a couple a years.

Buy local if the dealers service department has a good reputation. If not you will not gain anything by buying local.
