I use Camping World for most modification items and novelty stuff. Keep an eye open for their sales and\or free shipping specials. Tweety's RV supplies is another popular vendor although I've never personally bought thru them. MakariosRV.com is a great vendor for electrical do-dads such as converters and the like. I picked up a Progressive Electrical mgmt surge protector and couldn't find one for less....anywhere.

I use Amazon. My wife has the "prime" which is $70 a year. But you get free shipping. Pays for itself, especially at Christmas. Amazon seems to beat everyone's prices by a few bucks...

No more free shipping to CT. Governor here installed an 'Amazon tax' which is our state sales tax applied to all Amazon.com purchases. And when was this done you ask?.....right before Christmas.

Amazon Prime ($70 a year) will just about beat anything else out there - I am a Good Sam Lifetime member and Amazon even beats my CampingWorld discount (ok and for not Amazon is tax free!)

MakariosRV has the best prices on Progressive Industries products, that I have found. Most other big ticket items, I get from Adventurerv.net. Shipping can be a bit costly on some items, but I still usually come out ahead. I find Camping World to be too pricey on most things with the exception of the occasional sale.

Rattle, the commerce clause of the US Constitution was the deciding factor for years on why a non bricks and mortar stores like amazon, weren't bound to charge tax. The decision that talks about this the Quill decision. But like most things, the states (guess which ones) got together and has fine tuned their individual laws over several years, to get those types of transactions taxed. I guess trying to buy from the smaller guys that arn't yet compelled to collect tax, other than their own domiciled locations, would price their products a little better for shoppers. IMO

I have been known to get a good deal on E-Bay here and there. Just watch your prices.

WhiteSolera, Our Governor is a snake. It is true we, as citizens, were supposed to report our online purchases and pay a sales 'use' tax but few ever did. That snake, in order to bring Amazon into CT and build a distribution center (which would automatically make their CT sales taxable), gave Amazon huge tax incentives. To balance the loss of tax receipts from that business, he pushed that Quill deal thru way ahead of time taxing the folks here ahead of ground even being broken. In the not so distant future, we're planning on heading down south to become transplanted Yankees.
