"Show Price" 365 SAQ

New to the forum here but have been reading for awhile.

I was looking for a bunkhouse and the 365 saq looks to have one of the best value for the size and options.

As always they have Show pricing tag. In the fine print it says " prices not inclusive of tax,title,license and dealer doc fees." ( no problem)

The next sentence reads Prices include freight and prep

So great, I agree to the price, want to add the 2nd air and 2 fantastic fans.

They write it up and add a $995 PDI fee !!! I was not happy so the salesman went to get the owner. The owner said it is a typo and they cannot sell it without a PDI fee ( which at first he said was shipping and PDI )

My order is pending and I can cancel but I am not sure if I can get this same show price anywhere else. $36,995 for signature package,Fall Bonus,king bed,all weather exterior kitchen,radiant insulation.

Thoughts? I want to buy local for dealer support but my permanent site is 2 hrs away so Local could also mean that I may be OK trying to find a place local to my permanent site. $995 will not financially break me but it is the feeling of being scammed that I do not like.

Anybody will sell it to you at that price.
Show prices are very close to what they are supposed to sell for.

That other stuff is dealer theft. I would have a negative review done on them in the dealer review section.

Abandon that jerk and get out as cheap as you can (he will try to rip you off on the way out of the deal) and contact RV Wholesalers and/or RV direct (in that order for THEIR quote to see what I mean.

Herk's telling it like it is. If the price was published to include dealer prep and shipping, then he should sell it to you for that regardless. If he won't, cut and run. I don't have any experience with RV Wholesalers other than to know they have a rep who frequents this site who seems to try really hard to please their customers. I can tell you that my local dealer didn't charge me for a PDI.

No PDI charge when we got our TT. I would find a new dealer if they ever tried to charge for the PDI. It may be built in and buried somewhere else but to advertise a price and then try to add on--no way.

That is my thought as well. If you bury it and I cant find it then you win. If it is advertised and you say it must be a misprint then I win. I was happy to finally get out and see one but I sure do not have that warm and fuzzy feeling. I was paying cash , no trade so maybe they had nothing else to bury the pdi in.

I am just shocked at how easy they are willing to lose a deal. I pleaded my case twice and I was not even offered a discount on the add on options. I am also a repeat customer which I mentioned as well.

The salesman was another story, high pressure and flat out lied several times trying to push me to a keystone ( which they also sell ) Things like Keystone has 5/8 " Yes 5/8" roof. He did everything he could to talk down the sierra. Very unprofessional, made me feel stupid for choosing a FR.

I did talk in great length the the FR rep Curtis Gunter and he was more than helpful and is going to see what he can do to help the situation. He never once talked down other products which is the way I run my business.

IMHO doesn't sound like a dealer I'd want to do business with.

If you ask when you contact RV Wholesalers (or RV Direct) they will give you MSRP and their price for EACH option you request in the build. When I was dealing with my local dealer (May he burn in h%^&) when I told him I had a print out from RVW, his option prices were EXACTLY what RVW's MSRP and Wholesale price was. HE KNEW what the stuff was supposed to cost and THOUSANDS rolled off the posted price on the camper.

I appreciate everyone's replies and it puts me at ease that I was not over reacting.

I put 2 quotes in to RV W and for the exact spec it came out $735 over the show price but no pdi so in the end $260 cheaper. This was for an ordered unit btw.

Now adding the 2nd a/c option is $495 extra vs the $718 extra I was told locally. I had also added 2 factory installed fantastic fans but the rep was not sure exactly what model they were 6000 , 6600 etc.

I will be calling RV W Monday morning and cancelling my order with my local dealer ( assuming I can do so )

I would not place a new order yet!

Wait till you officially cancel that old order.
You don't want two of those babies do you?

Keep us posted. Really curious when push comes to shove (I.e., when you call to cancel) if they don't then remove the PDI charge. Also did you try RVDirect for another quote? We bought from them and were very pleased for what it's worth.
