Rockwood 2280 $8700

2012 Rockwood 2280 with the bathroom for $8700 plus tax etc (we'll import it to Canada ourselves).

Seems like about $3000 cheaper than we can find in Canada.

Should we move on it?

thanks!

Drakestar!

Are you ordering from RV Wholesaler, RV Direct or another large dealer in the states? Just curious.

thanks for the welcome.

RV Direct. Also rec'd an offer from a Canadian dealer for $9500 with a bunch of scare tactics attached.

Many from Canada order their trailers from RVD or RVW. When ordering from outside of your locale the big thing is to ask yourself what you will do when you need servicing; especially during the warranty period? This is a BIG discussion on the forum and experiences seem to be across the board.

In general ...

Some have done what you are asking about to save money (sometimes considerable $$) but found they struggle with service once they are at home.

Some have perfectly good experiences with servicing at home.

we see prices for this unit all over the place from 10k up to 13k. Stupid games they play! RVD has been 'direct' and seemingly upfront.

thanks for the warranty advice. I'm going to search this forum for those discussions!

seems to be that the dealers should welcome warranty work since it helps pay the bills. but some have an ego that won't let them get past the anger from people buying south of the border.

lunch time!
