RV Shopping and how much can you save?
I fully agree with the post talking about the "Great Deal" vs picking a good unit.
When were getting the buy a new RV bug we were shopping at several general area dealers. At one of the lots owned by the company, we bought ours from in 2014. They had a couple up front units to get the traffic I guess, with a big price cut advertised.
I walked through and was really shocked by the condition of this trailer. The 5th wheel was the worst put together brand new RV I had ever been in! Misaligned cabinetry, staple holes all over the place, carpet gaps and very dark colors that actually accentuated the staple problems.
I can't imagine why the dealer wouldn't have just sent the unit back, so they were selling it at a "deal" that, if you found the others like it out back, wasn't that great a deal anyway!
And, I can't imagine the person that would take the chance and buy the thing, if what you can see is done so poorly, what about what you can't?
We love to look and price comparing online looks to us like California prices are considerably less than many prices locally here in the Northwest. But then, the same out in the mid-west too, lower prices in what we're looking at.
We're just kinda stuck from buying anyplace else by the prevailing area dealer attitude of "if you didn't buy it from us, we won't fix it".
