The price you were quoted was the going price. No great deal. I own one and love it. Heading to Disney for the second time with it for 10 days.

I am really not sure what recourse they would have, the unit has not been ordered yet the deposit was by check ( no time to deposit yet) and no trade?

Ohio does have a 3 day buyer remorse law but I do not expect it would get to that. He really did not seem to care if I canceled or not.

They did list the sale price as $20,xxx but the final amount was right, maybe I should ask for that price they wrote as well lol.

Unless I am not doing something right RV Direct did not list the sierra or sandpiper. I looked into the columbus a bit but it looks to be substantially more and I cannot see where the extra money is ($20K )

I also noticed that pickup at any of their locations was also At least $995

Does RV Wholesale charge for local pickup? They do not charge PDI but if you have to pay to pick the unit up I don't see the difference.

One drawback is RVW is 2 hrs from me but both are 2 hrs from my permanent site.

If RVW was 2 hours from me I would not hesitate to use them.
Even my local (&^%$%^) dealer is an hour away.

Driving half way across the country was a serious consideration if my local dealer did not come close to their price. As it was I paid more and yet got zero service after the sale.

I wish you the very best luck with whoever you eventually buy from. RVW has come through for many members here. Dave Durnell, a commercial member here representing RVW, has made incredible things happen when there has been a breakdown in communications between members and his salesmen.

When I need to do it again, I will most likely make that drive and perform my shakedown camping trip at a local campground.

People "own up" to honest mistakes. They dig in their heals when caught with their hand in the cookie jar, however.

Just my opinion, of course; but after raising 2 boys ...

We are lucky our small local dealer (within 5 miles) was much lower than the another dealers show price. Gave us a price including shipping. No add ons (other than Virginia tax & tags which I expected) We ordered it it came in with a larger TV than we ordered also after the deal I asked about adding vent covers (which are not expexsive) They through them in installed as well no extra cost. I got to see the MSRP for all the options. With Puma almost everything is optional, got most of them. Checked internet prices & still came in cheaper or very close.

I do realize that we have purchased another camper from them & have my annual servicing done by them. They do take there own customers first but turn no one away.

Local dealers can be as cheap as others, ours just has low overhead & passes the savings along knowing you will come back. When we were buying a couple came in from VA Beach (5 hrs away) & bought a camper as well I heard them say they could believe how much cheaper the same camper was than in their area.

It does pay to shop around ..........

Where in OH are you located? We bought our 365saq from Couch's last year and they were within a couple dollars of RVW. We love the 365saq, by the way. Also, the 2nd A/C is a MUST.

I'm not convinenced that purchasing at an RV Show is necessarily a "deal".

There is a difference between an "informed buyer" and one who is not prepared with hard data on what they want to buy and what they can expect to pay.

Walking into a "show" (RV or any other kind) expecting a "good deal" BECAUSE it is a show is a good way to become disillusioned when you find out you might have over paid.

Same with eBay. Many folks get into the swing of spirited bidding and over pay; then find out the local store has the same item new and a cheaper price. Of course then they blame the seller when he (or she) "holds their feet to the fire" on the agreed upon price.

Be an informed buyer. Then you will know when you got a good deal and when they are trying to hose you.

PS - Don't say we did not try to help ...
How can one dealer sell for so much cheaper?
