I can't believe that RVWholesalers cannot beat Camping World. Have you contacted them?

======================

FWIW General RV in Wixom, Michigan pressure checks every new RV before delivery. Was out there watching them do it to a Lacrosse trailer. Service Tech was very willing to show me how the test for water & air leaks was done.
Want to see how they do it? Watch this video


Happy trails,

Happy trails,
Yeah, you'd think more dealers would jump on the cash cow. It's a few grand for a SealTech unit, but the two dealers within a 2 hour drive here that have it charge $250 just for the test. There's also a mobile RV tech with one, but he uses only when there's a leak call - nothing proactive. Floor blower/driver and pressure control by roof vent work for me!

Yep. Nothing wrong here.

....Yeah...RV/car salesmen are part time actors too. This sounds like a textbook move to me. Good work not falling for it!

Our did dealer did all that with no prompting. No extra Charge for Prep or anything else..... other than state sales tax & tags. No extra contracts or threats needed. They are very old school, their word is gold...... (yea I know cover your tail) ........

Its a 2 way street my dealer has campers with service work completed last fall & not picked up the RV owners think they should get free storage for the winter & pay in the spring............

Every Camping World I have ever checked RV prices at was considerably higher than anyone else.

You probably could have gotten that and more if you sat down and negotiated while in person. Sending an email later comes off as fishing, and severely downgrades your position. Not sure what the curve ball is, other than you NOT getting the trailer????

Probably Strike Three ?????

I know my dealer is a great guy & is not out to get rich off one sale, but cross him with something stupid & you will be off his lot probably with a restraining order to never come back.......

I think that there are a lot of good dealers out there. As with everything else we usually only here about the bad ones.

Indeed there are, very good dealers.
I kinda get a kick out of how hard some of us try to chisel the last nickel out of someone who is in business to make a profit.
I may be odd, but I want my dealer to make a little profit so he can be around when I need him.
When we ordered our V in Feb., I told the salesman straight out I wasn't into BS and I realized he needed to make a profit.
He knew (probably far better than I) that I could buy the same TT close to the factory for alot less.
We got along great, we plan on being fair with eachother and I assume we will both be happy.
If I do have a problem I know his home number and the dealership is maybe 4 miles from my door.
