Why in the world was anything signed before you had the trailer? I would never sign a contract until I could see it and check out everything and have anything fixed before I put pen to paper. Now if there is a problem when you pick it up you are stuck with it.

They are newbies and just didn't know. They relied on the saleman/dealership to be completely upfront and that rarely ever happens. At least to me it doesn't.

Congrats on the new trailer! We, also, have grandkids (4) and the two oldest are so much fun bringing with us! (The two youngest are under 2 years old)

Lots of great info in here but we all need to, sometimes, grow thick skin as some posters are a bit harsh sometimes!

Toddupton We signed a contract to purchase said trailer. We didn't sign anything else until all issues were done or is in writing to do to the trailer. We are new to purchasing a travel trailer and didn't/don't know that you are not to sign a contract to purchase a trailer. How are we to get the financing if we don't sign a purchase contract? If there is another way to get financing and purchase a trailer without actually signing the contract, then I would like to know how that is done. We did our walk through today and there were some things that were fixed and a couple of things that are on order and have in writing that they are to do when the parts come in. We did sign papers to have the extended warranty cancelled as well as the duratain. When we got there, the duratain was already done. I am still waiting to hear back from the finance manager about this as I want something to show those funds were refunded to the loan. If I don't hear back by Monday, I will be calling the bank that we financed with and discuss situation with them. Yes, if we had to do things over again and know what we know now, we would have done things a little differently, guess that is live and learn as one would say. Hopefully we will get this all straightened out and everything will be fine. The person that did the walkthrough with us was great and explained a lot of things to us as well as answered the tons of questions we had and the same with the parts dept.
I appreciate your feedback whitmw and ColoradoRick. We are new to all of this for the most part and trying to get through a lot of things while trying to do something good for our grandsons.

Congrats on the new camper!

When I was a newbie I quickly found out that knowledge comes from experience and that in time I would gain experience. If I were to buy another RV I would likely handle it somewhat differently but I'm pleased with the outcome of my first TT.
